Rail Fence with a twist

I am currently making a Rail Fence with a twist baby quilt.


I just adore the little children fabric which forms the square in the corners.

Poochie Bag

Leandri attended her first quilt class on Saturday. She made a poochie bag with three fat quarters.

The Move

We have moved during the weekend of 23 November 2013 to our new premise.











Our Journey

Sometimes in life there is sweet after the sour. My work contract expired in June 2013. It is unsettling to say the least. Although one prepare one self for these kind of changes, it is never easy and there is always something that catch you off guard.

Due to the unstableness of today's work environment, I have started a small Quilting business  in April 2012, which I have managed mostly after working hours and on weekends but with the focus on internet sales.

Since the contract expired, the short term focus changed to prepare for the International Quilt Convention  Africa which took place in September 2013.

The event passed by and so does time. Since I am now full time involved with the business, I also had to take a couple of decisions. One of them was to decide the way forward in terms of my business.

After a lot of research, I have finally decided to open my first retail shop. Oh, what a night mare to search for a suitable place. Unfortunately the Agents are not very helpful in this regard.

BUT FINALLY - THE PLACE !!!!

The Quilting effect

This photo shows the quilt top before it has been quilted.


The same quilt after it was quilted.



Purple Delight

I have completed quilting a quilt of a client. This was the first quilt Marie has done. She has never quilted before. Marie, well done. It is an amazing quilt.

 


I have not quilted the leaves. By doing so, it gave a dimension to the quilt. It made the flowers to pop.

High in the Mountains

My Hubby and I went on a short holiday last week. We visited various places in Mpumalanga. We stayed at the Forever Resort Blyderivier. It was such a pleasant experience.  The pictures are of some of the places we have visited/

Ouma Blokkie / Grandmothers Block

'n Blokkie wat ek gehekel het met Vinnis Autumn Mix garing.


A Grandma block which I have crochet with Vinnis Nikkim Autumn Mix yarn.

Playing Hooky/Haak uit

Ek neem deel aan die sak projek van die Ons Hekel blad op Face book. Ongelukkig laat begin maar sal inhaal. Hier is my eerste blokkie wat ek gaan gebruik vir die kante van die sak. Dit is 'n gratis patroon wat ek op Monica van Hekel Idees se blog gekry het.


Ek gebruik egiptiese katoen garing wat ek by One of a kind yarns gekoop het.

What is new?

I have just received Vinni's yarns. Vinni's has three types of yarns. Nikkim which is a Double knit 100% Cotton blend, Serina which is a 4 ply 100% Bamboo blend and Bambi which is a 70% Organic Cotton and 30% Bamboo blend.
