THIRD BOM

Bea´s third BOM is finished! I have run out of embroidery floss, but fortunately we have next week our yearly CREATIVA where this kind of floss is sold.

I am thinking of a few other items to put on the list like batting, knitting needles, maybe some yarn and of course 2 or 3 (sic!) fat quarters. I can´t spend so much this year because of the last repair on my sewing machine. Still it is usually fun and I can spend a nice day with a dear friend of mine.


At the beginning of the week I received the name of my partner for my 4SQS for spring. As you can see the center of the top is done. I made it with a charm pack from Moda called "chez moi", very fitting for a french woman like me!

Although I would not have bought bigger pieces of those fabrics (not really my usual colour choice) I see now the potential of the design. I think it has something from "Blended Quilts". Maybe my shopping list for the CREATIVA is growing afterall!

I will frame the center with a fresh green fabric and then hand-quilt it with some variegated embroidery floss.


My second Icarus shawl is growing too. I am on the last 25 rows with more than 400 stitches per row. I hope to finish it this week-end.


I am off now going to look at the blogs taking part in the 4SQS and get an idea of spring! Have a nice time!
