February 2018

February flew by, which I do not mind at all as it still is frightfully cold and I much prefer sunshine and nice temperatures so I cannot wait for spring to arrive.
But the low temperatures do give me more time for sewing (in spring and summer some of that time must be spent gardening) so the first part of February I spent time on Phebe.
I thought the whole thing needed a bit of ‘oomph’ so I added some bright red berries:

the large flowers in the upper corners

Time to start attaching that second sawtooth border

And while I pondered over what is next for Phebe, the weather changed from grey and dull into very cold and sunny, which made the trip to Karen’s B&B in Rijpwetering for the talk and show & tell by Hanneke Kwakkenbos from Atelier Vlijtig Liesje about broderie perse all the more pleasant, it was a lovely morning.

Someone was watching over my camera  😊 

Later on in the month I finally made my first dodecagon shape, I fell in love with those during the Margaret Sampson-George workshop I did at Petra Prins’ in Zutphen in January.
Betty Prins (click) was at the workshop with me and also fell for this shape, she invited me for some ‘dodecagonning’ at her atelier. She is way ahead of me (the hexies in the pictures are hers), it was inspiring to see the dodecagons she has already finished, we shared a lovely, warm, chatty morning.

Looking forward to making more of these dodecagons in March, they are quite addictive 😊
