Pomarium

I did not blogged for a long time, and in the meantime I did some stitching. As you can see there is some progress on Pomarium, and now I put her away to go back Winter Watergarden. It will take ages to finish these gardens, but I love them so! The actual colours are much nicer, it is a little dark, next time I will try to shoot a better one.

Berci

I have a new nephew called Berci (Bertalan), and I made this littlequilt for him. It is 70x120 cm, fits into his bed perfectly. He likes it a lot, at least he is smiling when I am checking him under or over the quilt!
I took me a little bit longer than a week to finish, and I used all my fabric from stash.

Pomarium launched

just before Christmas I started the Cloister Garden series from Chatelaine design, which are Pomarium (fruits), Herbularius (herbs), Tinctorium (dyes), and Rosarium (roses). I am not fully convinced I will do the roses, but the other 3 are beautiful, and since they are huge, they will occupy me for the upcoming years...
And antique white wins

Pomarium trial run on tea dyed fabric - Pear

After finishing Knotgarden series I am into Cloister Gardens (fruits, dyes, herbs, roses), and i was thinking taking a new background and try tea dyeing. I made a trial run for Pomarium fabric, this is my own dying. Despite the fact that the dying itself went well, I cannot imagine stitching 3-4 years on this colour, so I reverted to good old antique white for the whole piece. It took me a week to finish the Pear

Bag is ready

The course for bag making is over, I learnt a lot, got exhausted, and I am very happy with my new bag. Actually it is my mother's new bag, I realised I will not use it because I prefer bigger ones, but my mother was over the moon. And now I know zipper, inside pocket, handle, and all the little secrets of bag making!
I do not have a photo of the final one but I will make one next time!

Ready to start my first bag

I found a course where I can learn how to make a bag in 2 afternoon. It is a fairly complicated one, with zipped inner pocket, 3 sections, handle , frame and everything. I made the preliminary tasks of putting the parts into order, fix the vliesothingies all together, and I am eagerly waiting to Thursday to start.


Everything together, the dotted one is the lining


Front side and back of the front, this is the real color, not the previous one.


Inner separator and its back 
I was lazy to mark, so it was based on my estimation to be somewhere aligned!


Bottom, sides and its back

Winter moved on

I have finished the 2nd quarter of Winter Watergarden. It is a really beautiful design a pleasure to stitch, but now I am moving back to Summer Knotgarden to start is 3rd quarter. 
I am thinking on start one of the Cloister Gardens (Herbularius, Pomarium or Tinctorium -even Rosarium is out) whenI am done to have something on the go while finishing these two. But maybe 3 big ones are too much - I will see. But in the summer I spent half a fortune on speciality threads, so the kits are ready.
