Tiny quick project

... to keep my mind sane.

After packing a couple douzens boxes and rearranging a tiny part of them I decided it was about time to do something for me. And fast.

We moved to a much smaller town, where I don't have to leave with a huge bag after me, so a wallet to fit my jeans was the perfect project.


I love it! Shrinked it two times, it is now perfect for money and one credit card. And it actually feets in my jeans pocket. And I love it. Oh, wait, I said it again :)).

And the day we arrived, a lot of backing stripes waited for me at the post office. On sale, all of them. Such a good start!

Now I have to finish unpacking, so in a couple of month I'll be ready for bigger projects :)))

In a big hurry

I am.
Moving out in 2 days. Of course, before starting packing, I needed to finish this quilt.

It was horible. I don't think that is something bad that could have happened but didn't.

First, my walking foot started making a strage noise and I had to piece it with a regular foot. Lots of pulling, lots of cutting small blocks.

Than I started quilting and my walking foot died. (let me repeat what I said in the previous post, just in case you missed. Do not attempt to fix your walking foot by yourself, in the middle of the night. It won't work! Trust me, I've been there) I had to leave for a week and when I got back I just couldn't quilt it anymore. There was a lot of pulling, the only chance of having it quilted was to go with paralel lines. This or free motion and ...well.. I'm just not the free motion kind of girl :))


Than, I got out of white thread. I figured that it wouldn't be to obvious if I used a pinkish kind of white. And it wasn't. Not until I got out of this one too. And used a green one :))


But you know what? I love it. It's a keeper. And I cannot belive how much I love it after it's washed. A beauty!

And yes, it is very very appealing to others too :)))
