Stormquilt en schoenen

Ik werk nog steeds aan de stormquilt. Mijn naaimachine werkt helaas niet altijd goed en dat is behoorlijk frustrerend. Ik denk dat ik hem voor een servicebeurt naar de winkel moet brengen. Al vanaf het begin gaat het niet goed. Zo heb ik eigenlijk nog geen plezier gehad van het machineborduurgedeelte. Ondanks dit heb ik de quilt voorzien van wat struikgewas. In eerste instantie had ik dat gedaan door vrij machine quilten, maar ik was niet blij met hoe het er uit zag. Daarom besloot ik om weer kleine blaadjes te knippen en deze met takken vast te naaien. Nu ben ik wel tevreden met het resultaat.

I am still working on the stormquilt. My sewing machine is not always working well and that is very frustrating (I think I have to take it to the store for service. I have not been able to use it properly, since I bought it). But, I have been able to make some bushes. At first I did some free motion quilting for the bushes, but I wasn't happy with the outcome. That is why I decided to make little leaves and sew the branches. Now it's what I want it to be.

Mijn schoenen hebben inmiddels wat minder kleur, want de kleur bleef er vanaf komen. Ik denk dat dat kwam doordat het leer nieuw is en misschien behandeld is door de fabriek. Dus nu draag ik ze in pastelkleuren. Hoe dan ook, het is in mijn ogen nog steeds beter dan wit.

My shoes had to loose some color, because it kept coming off. I think that is because the leather was new and maybe impregnated. So now I am wearing these pastel colored shoes... Still I think it's better than white.

Good morning Corryna. I love your confetti bush. It reminds me of my TREE quilt we did in the group.
The top free motion sewing I can see on this so far looks terrific.

Your shoes came out well, I like the subtle shades just fine. Have fun wearing them.

I'm trading lots of ATCs lately. Am working on some fabric ones, and made my first ever "stamp" last night and stamped some fabric with stamp pad ink and some fabric paint. Am sewing those up today!
Come see in the next day or so.

Het is gaaf om de opbouw van de quilt te volgen. Ik ben heel benieuwd hoe het uiteindelijk word als hij af is...

The little leaves are really effective. The shoes look good too.

that quilt is incredible! What a lot of work those leaves must have been, but the effect is terrific!

Your shoes are too cool too!

Je stormquilt wordt wel heel bijzonder!
Wat de schoenen betreft : ze zijn mooi maar ik weet wel een verfsoort die beter had gepakt (lol)!

I'm back: looking at your lovely quilt again! While walking this morning, I was thinking about the flowers that you have on it: the red in the right hand corner and the yellow ones on the left side. You have machine embroidered the yellow one, right? Please tell me about the red ones on the right, as they are not so easy to see. Did you hand dye the fabric for the tree? It is such a lovely piece with so much to see and ponder!

Your storm quilt is lovely.
I have washed an old pair of trainers and they are ready to decorate when I have time. Yours have changed colour but I think I like them even better like that!
