hi there, long time no sea :-)
it is very hot around here for some weeks now, i got lots of work and so i really did not sew very much but spent time in the kitchen to make jam, bread, yoghurt and, just this weekend, yoghurt icecream. yum!
well, today i got at least some of my sewing mojo back and made another block design for my sea quilt: this cute galaxy star.
the tutorial is from marcia (thanks!) and can be found here.
paper piecing really is fun. and this block is not too hard to make.
while sewing i listened to this
see the resemblance?? and all incidentally..
it is John Griesemers bestselling novel "Rausch" ("Signal and Noise"). i always wanted to read that one, never did, but got the cd some days ago - perfect. it is about the laying of the first transatlantic telegraph cable from England all the way to Amerika, plus some love, madness and war - really interesting.
