October hopes

September wasn't really my month but look what's in store for October! I'm so excited about this quilt top. I picked it up today from quilting service. My friend done a fab job on it and I love it! She does quilt for others and uses short arm. Every time I visit her and chat over coffee it's like recharging my batteries. She is my quilting guru for sure.

I'm making this my October goal. I missed my September goal which was to finish Christmas cushion. I have only managed to quilt the back side of it.

Pebbles in my interpretation looks like rocks! Yeah sure, that was my intention, lol.

I definitely need to practice MORE. Once I hang this quilt on wall I'll have it as motivation to improve myself.

Take this as September round up since that's all I achieved. The credit of quilting goes to my friend Monika. Plus we have collected 112kg of horse chestnuts so far. These are collected by school and huntsman will feed the deer in winter with them.

Monday house

Here we go. The house I started while ago is finished. I'm not so thrilled since it looks a bit out of proportion. The roof is heavy but it still stands up. I kept decorating pretty simple.

I usually don't make the house like straight rectangle but I haven't thought about it while making the crochet strips. Let's call it trial version :) Not sure if there ever will any other version.

I started it as part of Monday Makers which I thought would be nice addition to linky parties. Wouldn't that be nice, start something small every Monday and show off the finish the next one? It would if only I could keep up, lol.

I got the idea of next project from Lucy. It is hardly dangerous to click on links provided on blog posts you read. CLICK HERE to find out what I'm making, LOL.

Paint Drips - A Quilter's Mixology SAL

While ago when I started blogging and reading blogs I wanted to be one of those cool chicks included in blog hop stops. Inspire and encourage others, wouldn't that be great? Guess what. I'm being one of them due to lucky coincidence!

Hop over to Sew Sweetness to read all about my project Paint Drips for A Quilter's Mixology SAL.
Thank you Sara for having me!

Monday, Monday

I was hoping to share finished project I started while ago as part of new linky Monday Makers but I can only show you some progress. I'm undecided what flowers I will add.

So if I'm not sewing what am I doing?

I'm waiting for the right mood. Seriously, I need to be in mood to do some FMQ and I have at least two projects to quilt. In the meantime I'm dreaming about some redo since I received Ikea #bookbook. Have you seen the advert? Fun!

My husband (and camera) went to Japan and just because he is so nice he brought me some souvenir. Echino? Yes please!

We were also enjoying some bits of autumn sun.

Yeah, we went to ZOO. No suricatas in our backyard :)

Plus we visited castle called Bouzov.

Autumn also means conkers horse chestnuts. We have been picking up those all week long.

But do not worry; things are getting back to normal so I'll share some real sewing next time around.

Random Thursday

I don't know where to start so I just do random today. Have you heard about Quilter's Mixology Sew Along? Well I'm going to be part of the blog hop so I'm working on my project. Yeah, the secret one I didn't want to reveal any details of :)

My girl turned 8 and I baked not only one cake but two since I screwed #1. Don't rush yourself that's the lesson I learned!

How big is actually the quilt I made for her? I don't really know since I forgot to measure it but here is us doing some fun posing on trampoline.

Do you want to be inspired by some Orange peels? Check out all the entries and vote for your favorite! It doesn't have to be mine ;)

Please learn some more about Janeen that I tagged during the Blog Around the World hop.

I'm kind of behind with my bloglovin feed but I will catch up eventually. I'm not being active lately since .... life happens. Do not worry though; it is only my frustration over job hunting. There are ups and down and I'm happy to have a family I can count on.

And we jump and jump until we drop dead.
