Back to reality... and to basics

After taking tours from blog to blog and seen very inspiring work, I fell back into my real possibilities at the moment being.

One step at at time, I´ve always been told.  I´m anxious, though, to give a complex project a try. A moment´s sanity showed me I don´t have neither the ability nor the necessary tools yet.

So, decided to get two very simple projects finished before I tackle anything else. This is one of them.

The other one was based on Linda Hohag´s and Linda Carlson´s Patchwork Pantry magazine. The cover shows a large 36 block appliqué quilt, of which I´ve selected no more than 8 designs in order to put a wall hanging together.

Poor pictures above but I´ll try to do better when I get them finished.

Back to work now!...


  1. Bia ~ Thank you for visiting my blog and leaving such a sweet comment. I've enjoyed browsing your blog and really like your applique wall hanging you've been working on. Nice job!

  2. Tks for dropping! Nice to have encouraged me...We´ll be in touch from now on!

  3. Guess I´ve got the wrong blog posted! Chasing Dena now...

  4. Love the applique wall-hanging Bia! Will you do blanket stitch by hand or will it be machine appliqued? I'm not too good at the machine method but enjoy hand applique very much. The colours you have chosen are beautiful:-)

    Happy Sewing!

  5. Tks, Helen, for the encouragement. Considering the machine I use, I can only do the hand appliqué, which I´ve got finished by now. Thought I´d get it finished today but I don´t think so. Maybe tomorrow.

  6. Bia Thank you for visiting my blog and leaving such a sweet comment.
