vintage sewing machines and embroydery. People there are making amazing things, and I was curious to give it a try on my old Singer. As I have started to make my first baby quilt, this was the good place to make my first try. Of course, you are supposed to use embroydery threads, but I was impatient and just wanted to try, so I used the ordinary spool (still different colours) and voila! Kitty is there now. When I will find some decent embroidery threads, I definitely will give this technique another try - truly, I recommend you to give it a try as well!

Weather wasn't nice and my cloth line too low for this one (it's again on the big side) so sorry for poor picture but I must admit that this is the first top which I actually are happy with. It's rather precise, no major mistakes, the true colours are very rich, and it looks great.
Paisley Park by Moda, which I won from Kansas Troubles Quilters, one fabric is vintage SOULEIADO, BY SOCIETE CHARLES DEMERY "TISSU", and the red background is a rich cotton sateen.
On the first day of this year I happily started on rather small by size but my most important project for this year - the first quilt for my first grandchild! I 'll be talking about it a lot (a quilt, I mean!), but a bit later.
