Sewing business

wip's September 27th, originally uploaded by -syko-.

I am here. I have a lot of projects on the go, but the business courses I'm attending takes a lot of my time at the moment. It is great however and I get all the information I need to make syko an official business. It now feels more like a lot of hard work and less like a dream (coming through). But a good proportion of both should make a good business, don't you think? AND I have been making so many carpe diem- and follow your heart quilts that there really is no other way to go if I want to have some street cred left...

When you start a business you 'have to' make some investments, mine will hopefully be a Bernina Aurora 440 that I have been dreaming of for a couple of years now. Can't wait to get it and try it out on the quilt I got so many nice comments on, thank you!


Scrap quilt

This is was happened when I decided it was time to empty my scrap boxes. It was so fun to make something big for a chance. I might have to make another quilt in a totally different colour scheme to get rid of the darker + black & white pieces...Now I "just" have to get some batting and do the quilting. My daughter wants this quilt for herself after reading this book. I think we've both enjoyed it as much, we're reading the last chapter tonight.

Thanks for all your challenging suggestions for the interactive project!


Interactive project stage 2

I must agree with Jules that it is more fun to watch someone else do a project like this, or at least it seems much easier :) It is very challenging to work with a picture when you have no idea how it is going to turn out in the end. However I thought I picked an easy one (I did not cheat) when I picked Anina's suggestion a bunch of wild flowers. But then again, how do you sew wild flowers and what kind of flowers would the girl with the sewing machine like? While I was thinking and breaking my camera (I got a new one, thank you very much!) Summer faded away and the only flowers that felt right were sunflowers. I hope they look wild enough... I placed them on the left hand side of the girl when I realised there has to be room for eight more things, what they will be it's up to you! Can I have ten more suggestions, please! Sorry for the rainy day colour of the picture!
