Many, many years ago in a little far away country lived a girl who oftenly went to movie with her daddy to watch movies about wild, wild west. In these movies she saw wonderful bed blankets made from many colorful small pieces of fabrics. And of course, she wanted to have one, but in her far, far away country no one knows how to make it. Then, some decades later clever men invented internet and our little girl (being granny in meantime) finally learned how to make a quilt. From many scraps , in all the wonderful colours in the world.

I love my little scrapy flowers more and more.
Don't you think they match perfect with mini
zinias in the background? Can't wait for evening
to make some new, and think I now how would
they be assembled.

How about crocheting? This is my second love,
(first is quilting, of course), and finally have
something to show you.This cushions are pretty
big, each side is about 22" long;the third one
is going to be ready soon.

Almost forgot : my dear friend Loredana has a Blogcandy - link
is on the sidebar; go and visit her

Keep sewing and smiling,

I moved from blog " Krpe & zakrpe " which will
still exist but only in my own , croatian language
to this one which is going to be writen only in english.
Subject will be the same; fabrics, colours, quilts...

It is thursday now , but better late than never.
And this is the very first flower of my new
project. A you can see, this flowers are going
to have all petals diferent, and are smaller
than previous one, sides are only 1" long. I'm not
quite sure about layout of this quilt and how
many flowers I'm going to make, but I have enough
time to decide. And this is the excellent way to
use all little scraps I have.

Being away from home for a week wasn't the reason not make
something for my hidden Christmas basket.I didn't have sewing
machine with me, but I like hand sewing , and here is the result.
Ball made from fabrics; this is pincushion, but I'm planing
to make some for lavander.


Last week I wasn't home , I was here

visiting my daughter's family.

This is the only rose from my garden, and you can see what that bad, bad beetles have done to her.
