New Beginnings

It's been a long while since I have written anything in the blog, but I have two excuses for it, and I have something new to show as well.

The first excuse is that we have moved home in January, and everything is still a bit of a mess. One of the great things about the new place is an extra bedroom which became my sewing room! It's tiny and  somewhat dark and it still needs storage, but it's all mine, which is super cool.

That's about all there is to it - an ironing board, a table and a design wall.

The second excuse is that I went back to school - started a Graphic Design course at the Dublin Institute of Design, which means I now have homework to do! = less time for quilting :((

I used the transition period to finish the handwork that has been in the making for about half a year - a bunch of EPP flowers in three sizes and three designs.

Bright, happy and fun like a box of candy ;)))

The idea was to play with the different shapes and sizes to create something beyond grandmother's garden, something like a sun-lit summer meadow. The layout took a lot of experimenting and progressed from something like this...

... to something like this:

I think this has a bit more drama. I'm working on finishing it now and hope to be able to present it in a couple of days, provided the weather permits taking pictures outside (don't know where exactly - miss the old fence).

Linking up to Main Crush Monday at Cooking Up Quilts


  1. Congrats on your own room - that's exciting! Mine is small too, but I love it. Those EPP flowers are soooo pretty! I really like the second layout, it jumped off the page at me (which is a good thing) :) Thanks for sharing your flowers on MCM!

  2. I love your hexis on the yellow fabric, very summery!

  3. Congratulations for new home and room! Love the second design too. Enjoy :)

  4. Congrats on the course - sounds like fun and all the best in the new home!
