Swap received and ongoing projects

This is the beautiful zipper pouch I received from my swap partner Kim. I love it so much! It was filled with goodies, sweets and chocolate. Hana had a blast when she opened it, her eyes were as big as plates!

Aquest es l’estoig amb cremallera que m’ha enviat la Kim, la meva parella d’intercanvi de Kentucky! L’estoig anava ple de chocolatines, caramels, un llapis, una crema de llavis i un iman de l’estat de Kentucky.


I love every little detail of this pouch, the fabric choice is so lovely ,with the linen bit. The quilting fits in perfectly and what I like the most is the double stitching in both blue and brown, matching the colours of the patterned fabric, and the way the zipper is sewn in. Oh, zippers… I like them, I like sewing zippers, but still I haven’t mastered this technique!!! So I suppose it’s a matter of practice and more practice.

M’encanta com li ha quedat, la tla que ha escollit es perfecta i hi lliga molt amb el lli. L’encoixinat ha quedat molt be i el que m’agrada mes son els repunts que ha fet en blau i marro lligant amb els tons de la tela estampada. La cremallera esta tan ben cosida! ai les cremalleres, m’agraden, pero encara no les domino… Suposo que es questio de practica practica i mes practica… que hi farem!


In the meantime, I have finished two quilt tops. One was finished a while ago, but since I haven’t been able to quilt for the last two months…( my walking foot was not working well), I was trying to do other bits and pieces. Now I’m craving for quilting!

De mentres, he estat fent petites cosetes. Fa temps que no he pogut fer encoixinat perque el peu de doble arrosegament no m’anava alhora, pero ara em moro de ganes d’encoixinar!


This one above is a custom order which I want to send by the end of this week. The baby is due to pop out very soon, so I hope I’m still on time before it arrives into this world. I used a charm pack of School Days for Moda.

Aquest quilt de dalt es un encarrec, he fet ser vir un charm pack de School Days per Moda. Espero enviar-lo a fials d’aquesta setmana abans de que neixi el seu inquil.lí.


This is another quilt top using more scraps from Aneela Hoey’s A Walk in the Woods. I’ve just cut a second border in grey and I’ll use a foxy print for the backing. I’m not sure what the binding is going to look like yet, but I’ll show you when it’s finished, of course.

I aquest altre es un quilt que s’ha anat esperant a la qua d’encoixinar. Esta fet amb restes de tela de l’Aneela Hoey, A Walk in the Woods. Ja tinc tallada la tela per fer-li un marc i la tela del darrere estara plena de guineus. 

I’ve made a second A-line dress for Hana. She won’t let me photograph her wearing it… but it does fit her very well! This time I sew buttons all the way down at the back.

Aquest es el segon vestit que li hje fet a la Hana. Aquest cop li he cosit botons de dalt a baix a la part del darrere.




Now I’m working on a third dress, adding some detail and altering the pattern a bit (just a little because I’m a bit of a wimp and I’m afraid of making a huge mistake). I’m adding some pin tucks at the centre front, and I’m thinking of adding a pocket or two, I’ll see how I’m getting on… and hopefully I can take a photo of her wearing the three of them…

N’estic fent un tercer, canviant una mica el patro, nomes una mica perque no m’atreveixo a fer gaires virgueries encara. A veure si em deixa fer-li unes quantes fotos amb tots tres vestits. Ultimament no es deixa fotografiar gaire!

  4. El vestit és senzill però això el fa més maco… i el quilt de la caputxeta és també molt maco
