Look what I finish…can’t believe? But yes it is mine. Actually I sew it; not for myself but for my little girl, and now I need to make one more for my older girl. It won’t be with a bear faces, but I want to make one of her favorite dog toy faces; 20 of them and one more for a pillow.
This was a fun project but I don’t know how many hours I spent on it. I even don’t want to know that. It is just I make some steps with my girl watching me, and I watching her, and some steps late at nights. But the important thing is, that I make all the stitches and I even did put all the steps for finished it. I don’t know why I start this so big project, because I never have a handmade quilt by myself, so this is really my first. I did like the idea, and the bears are so cute, and it is one of the first projects for my year class that I did take. All I want is just learn some new stuff and I did start with this project.
I will admit, I did learn some stuff but the most important stuff are hidden; the experience, the only think that you can’t describe and that is just yours. Fabulous. Totally handmade, ok with some free motion embroidery floss stitches, and some with a machine stitches. I have my machine almost 3 years and this is the first project that I did use one off stitches for the bear appliqué face. So now definitely I know how to use this stitch. Isn’t that great?
So now I need to start doing some other project from a tutorial class because the finished plan is to have at least 10 new finished projects form it and with all possibilities for future projects. This is the fun part of learning something new. You could go on a different level and you could incorporate some of your previous experience, the best thing ever.
I totally forgot the main point of writing this post. We plan to move in a bigger apartment, and we need some new stuff for it. For now I’m still just a 24/7 mom and I can’t d0 anything for our relocation and don’t feel good about this. So I did have an idea that if I’m here and I can’t do anything I could at least do some fabric projects for this. This quilt is just one of it.
OK I need to admit, that I want to do more, but for now I can’t and my bigger projects that I want to do; are some like making a dining room table, a couch, closet for main bedroom…and everything that I need to have in my garage-workshop-space. I won’t tell you how much I want to go there, but for all this I need to be on different address and here I don’t have a space for something similar.
So yey, we will move, not soon, but we will be there some day. With nice view, my and just mine workshop space, green house and a little bit of vegetable garden, with high roof ceilings. Dreamy. O, and with a roof terrace.
