As I mentioned before, I love quilts! I admire the hard work and details invested into all quilts, the colors, the combinations... I watch and follow many quilts on blogland, admiring them all, and knowing that I could never make one, not a real one, anyhow. By 'real one' I mean a real quilt, with some pattern, not just rectangles attached to each other. With quilt filling, with all the three layers of quilt. I too lazy for that. I like instant products... I always choose easy clothing patterns. I know my limitations. This is why I knew I could never make a real quilt. But than I saw in person some of my friend's work (for the Hebrew readers, I am referring to Irit from Irit B) and knew I have to try. So I did, just a little bit every time.. took me forever. Now I am the proud owner of a cute little quilt, with filling, binding... everything. It's very small. will be a cute stroller blanket for a newborn... but I thought it's better to try a small quilt first. I LOVE it..

Well, the Summer is almost over. I can't wait... Everything seems so much more difficult when it's so hot outside! We just returned from a short vacation neer the Cineret. It was so busy... the girls, even the twins, had a lot of fun, but my dh and myself.. we now need a vacation of our own. But it's time to think of some back to school wordrobe, right? just two more weeks... Here's what I am planning: 1. two skorts for each one of the girls 2. 2 shorts each 3. 2 long pants each And I started. So far I made one skort each, and a matching doll dress. Skorts are a big success in my house. I like it and so do the girls. For the first skort I made my beloved old Emily for both. Here's what I got. Modkid swimming suit pattern. What do you think? would it work? (I'll be making it a bit longer, of course) I also want another dress for myself. I baught two patterns, and I'm eager to try them. Also pants for myself. and, yes, a quilt! I've started it so long ago, since I'm arriving at that frightenning stage of filling it, binding it... and I'm afraid because of all of the work that was already put into that top... I guess I'll just have to try... Hope you have a great time for the rest of the summer vacation...

Hi all! It's been very busy in here... We had the twins birthday last month. I'm ashamed to say I made them nothing... well, except a cake. But really, they grow so fast (well, my little guy does, my little girl is very small for her age... I'm working very hard on getting her to gain some weight!), and they spit food all over their clothes... I'll be making some clothes for them when they start walking... In the meantime, I made them a cake. Sweet Bee Buzzings. Look it over.. I didn't use the tutorial, but the pattern is great, and I really like the shape of the bag. (The blog has more cute things... Look it up!). I have another nag already cut, just waiting for me to sew it. I hope to get to it next week! Then, I made two more swimming suits from the Modkid book. The ones I made before got used so much they lost almost all their color! what a shame!!!! The first one I made last week, and my girl already tried it on..
