Little patches of pink

This morning I got to do a little stitching in the sun while the boys were enjoying themselves in the garden. I'm experiencing a bit of a patchwork crush lately and this is just some experimenting. I sewed some patches together and then quilted them onto a piece of felt. I like how it feels; the colours & prints are a bit too much for my usual taste though. Now I'm trying to figure out what to do with it...


Vanochtend kon ik lekker een beetje naaien in het zonnetje terwijl de jongens in de tuin speelden. Ik heb een beetje een patchwork-bevlieging de laatste tijd en dit is een experimentje. Het zijn wat vierkantjes aan elkaar genaaid en doorgestikt op een lapje vilt. Het voelt lekker aan: echt als een quilt. De kleuren en patroontjes zijn wel een beetje overweldigend vind ik. Nu nog verzinnen wat ermee te doen...

  3. Hi, so cute. My mom quilts. I have no talent in this area and so respect those that do. :) Maybe I can post some of her work someday at my blog and feature her too. Thanks for the inspiration. :) Hopping over from Serenity Saturday.
