My moment of the day...

What do you do when you get a couple of hours for yourself at home and the weather is fantastic and all you want to do is some crafty stuff? Sit down with a book in the sun? Naaahhh. Work in the garden? Naaahhh. Make a phone call to a friend? Naaah. Go for a walk? Naaaahhh. The desire to be creative was to strong for any of the above alternatives that I could have chosen.

I decided to move my cutting board and fabric outside. Why not? At least I wasn't stuck inside the house feeling bad about not being outside.

The wind was a bit of a problem at times but a little pebble kept my cut squares in place. It was rather nice cutting fabric outside today. And I am looking forward to start piecing these squares. It is going to be a quilt for my summer house in Sweden. I think I just had my moment of the day. :D

Kärlek

  1. Åh, vilka härliga färger! Skönt att kunna vara ute och gör nytta. Nu har inte jag gjort ett lapptäcke på jättelänge, jag har till och med sålt ett. Jag börjar faktiskt bli lite sugen att leta fram lite lappar, då jag har några hundra alldeles färdiga, bara att sy ihop... Hoppas ni får en fortsatt härlig sommar. Jag jobbar och jobbar...

  2. I love your fabric! When I was making a quilt for my mum I over estimated the amount of squares I needed to cut so I think I've enough for a king size quilt! I've been trying to find some things online for inspiration and what to make!

  3. Så fina tyger! Klart att man inte kan lämna dem inne när det är så fint väder! Utomhus i solljuset känns de bara ännu finare!
    Jag brukar virka utomhus, det är bra sommarpyssel!

  7. Looks wonderful Annette!I hope you enjoyed it,and what a wonderful setting!
    There is something so special about outside sewing - it seems almost too good to be true when I do it, and so it makes me feel guilty as well as happy!
    Have been a doing a bit of outdoor sewing myslef this week, but today it has poured non-stop!
