Ciao a tutte, eccomi con un nuovo progetto, una sacchetta per la scuola per una bimba che adora i cavalli e il colore ROSA!!
....Poi devo informarvi che ho cominciato il progetto per il mio primo quilt, ho scelto di cominciare con dei quadrati grandi: 70 pezzi cm. 15 x cm. 15, tanti soggetti per le stoffe, ma sempre rose su uno sfondo azzurro chiaro....
Se riuscirò vorrei usarlo nelle prossime serate primaverili, ai piedi del mio lettone.... ma... vedremo cosa combino! Per ora ho solo buone speranze!!

hallo to everybody!

I've taken some photos of the project of my first quilt... the squares are very large but I think that it would be better for me to practice in! I've cut 70 cm 15 xcm 15 squares, lots of patterns but everywere roses on a ligth blue background.... Once I'll finish it, I'd like to put it on the bed to warm the fresh spring evening which are coming soon...... I think so!!

At the same time I'v sew a lunch bag for a little young girl that loves horses and pinks at all...

take a look!

Here we are!!!!
I'm now showing you all of my finds! Three great books: about bakery, country living and vintage sewing!!!

......and a coffe pot!.... It's new, with an old look. I've added the rose decals on it, you know I'm always in love with Roses!
I'm quite satisfied... but now I'm looking for the cups! At this time I'm not sewing anymore, I'm just browseing throughout my stash of fabrics to choose the ones for my new, FIRST, flowered quilt... I'm ispired by Mias Landliv quilt, but really she's a Pro.

.....Ed ora, per la prima volta, anche in Italiano.... per le mie nuove BLOGGETTES che a ragione mi hanno chiesto una traduzione!!!

Queste sono le foto degli acquisti di ieri: tre bellissimi libri . Uno di alta pasticceria, uno di arredamento country (sono fissata) e uno di quilt Vintage.

Sono tutti molto belli.

Poi ho trovato questa caffettiera bianca, nuova, ma con un look invecchiato... ho aggiunto delle decalcomanie di rose (sono la mia passione) ed ora aspetto di trovare le tazze!

In questi giorni non sto cucendo molto.... mi preparo al progetto di un nuovo quilt, sullo stile di Mias mio preferito! Ho talmente tante stoffe, che poi non riesco a decidere.

Con un pò di tempo a disposizione proverò a tradurre i vecchi post...... grazie a tutte per le visite!

I've had some problems but for now all it's ok!!

Hallo my dear friends, so many days without posting, but it has been a very hard week for me!
Now Christmas is really coming and I'm baking some pies as a present for friends !!!!! this is "La diablo", I think it could be " The devil" in English.
It's made by dark chocolate, eggs, nuts and a little bit of flour....It's very chewy and flavoured. I've put on the top some very little pink and yellow roses from my garden, as decoration!!!
ENJOY!!!!!!! XOXO Sabrina
