In sfarsit a venit toamna! :-) Si odata cu ea, inspiratia pentru noi proiecte. Iata un joc cu octogoane, care mi-a placut foarte mult. V-a iesi o fata de masa si va mai exista si un "pui" al ei, din aceleasi materiale, primite de mult, de la prieteni de departe si lucrate acum cu mult drag.

The autumn is finally here and along with the colder weather, it brings new ideas and a stronger drive for patchwork. Lately, I played with some octogons and I made the top for a table runner. There will be also a smaller one, made from the same fabrics, fabrics I got some time ago from dear friends from afar and put to work now with great joy.




Si asa cum se spune, sculele bune fac jumatate din treaba, am folosit tipare cumparate in ultima excursie si creion special. Intr-adevar, conteaza cu ce lucrezi, toate octogoanele si patratele au iesit perfect, s-au taiat perfect, s-au cusut perfect si s-au potrivit perfect, fara mari batai de cap. Imi place cum a iesit!

And as they say, that good tools means half of job done, I used templates bought in our last trip and a water erasable pen. It really does matter what tools you use! Everything went perfect and easy. I like how everything turned up!
