Books 2018

Hope you had a good start into the new year!

I love looking back at the books that were my companions during the past year. While social media is taking away a lot of my reading time I try hard to set aside time for reading and turning paper pages.
And every time I finish a book I take a picture and set it aside to revisit end of the year. And so I can see that the past year was dominated by the books of Elena Ferrante and two related to my travels to Napels and Peru which brings back memories of those places I really enjoyed visiting.

Not included here are the arts&crafts books mainly about quilting that also come to stay with me during the year.


 

 

 

 

 


I will be back with progress update on my quilting journey soon.

Happy New Year

I am happy that I'm not going to start the new year with empty hands.

I have this finished epp quilt top waiting to be backed and hand quilted.



And I also have this hand piecing top to be completed.


And since these are both hand sewing projects it also means that I can soon start designing and machine piecing a new project!

And with these thrilling news I'd like to wish you all a very happy and healthy new year. And lots of creativity!

Crux // 8 and last !

Crux is all done! A black and white quilt only. But with still a lot going on in my humble opinion. Difficult to photograph though. Hopefully this pics will convey some of the details that are there to discover. A quiet quilt at first sight but rich with details at a closer look. Be it in the white on white prints, be it within the quilting.

Hand pieced and machine quilted. With only 130 x 100 cm one of my smallest quilts. But one that gave me a lot to think about in terms of design choices.

Lima // 3

Lima is growing. This is the hand sewing project I started during a trip to Lima last August. I started by just sewing these stars. I have almost reached the final amount of stars and meanwhile I also have a plan for the spaces in between and maybe for the borders as well.




I have decided to postpone the hand quilting of Infinity shown in the previous post as I really want to see how my plan will turn out for this top.
