"Bistro" cozy - for hot coffee cup

Hello my dear friends,
I had a lot of scraps, nice prints with bistro cafe, coffee beans, cup, and text; I was trying to find a good combination of prints to go with all those small shapes, and I really wanted to give them the same look, like they were made after a pattern.
So, I've made one, just cutting the big shape for cozy, in small pieces, having my "inspiration" for them after the shape of my scraps.  

Must find some buttons now, and they are done!
(And all this time I was hardly working on my flowers . ...some news about them, later)
Happy sewing!

100 green beans

For sure, next year I'll grow beans in my little garden!
This was the first year and first time when I've done gardening; I started late, after our fence was done.

Today I've got 100 green beans! (I must prepare some fresh garlic for them!)
Big indeed, a great, wonderful, refreshment for summer days!

And some delicate pansies for you, my dear readers!

Happy gardening, happy sewing!

Dew drops. And Clematis decided to blom...

How refreshing can be to see this in the morning?! ...

...and feel the earth under your bare feet?! .... it fills me with good energy!

I'm pretty sure, these are some happy strawberry leaves! Even if is so small and I recently planted, this Clematis seems to feel comfortable and at home, and decided to bloom.

Now I think that is a good day to start ... sewing!!

Happy sewing!

Quilted eyeglasses case

My dear friends,
I've done this quilted eyeglasses case a while ago, I've posted two pictures here and here.
I enjoy to use it and that's why I'm glad to share it...
As the print is already heavy, hard to join another fabric with it.
 The first one...
 ...the second...
 ...the third...
 ...the fourth...
 ...and the fifth.

I like the classic, elegant, black and white combination.

Really cozy, fun to make....

Happy sewing!!!!!

What can make you happy...

...for me, they are few little things:
    - seeing my girls everyday, smiling,
    - my mother voice on the phone,
    - my grandparents old pictures...
    - new born babies,
    - little plants from seeds I've planted.
A daily walk in my garden can relax and brings me joy.

My first rose....

 Interesting, beautiful, onion flower....

Vero's flower, growing everyday...

A small companion, scared by my presence or happy for the sun, resting on that warm siding under my bay window.

Even a strawberry every day, not bad at all!

 New tomatoes in the morning...

Veronica's pretty smile...

Few pictures, a little joy everyday.

After all,
Happy sewing!
