Geckos are marching in

After ironing on the Heat'nBond to the fabric on Tuesday, work sort of stopped. Other things had to be done in and around the house.

Yesterday I started cutting out the gecko figures. What a tedious work! All those curves and little toes... Meanwhile I watched "De Wereld Draait Door", a popular Dutch program, via internet on my computer. It keeps me up to date with what's going on back home.

Today I ironed the geckos to the top and I like the colour combination. One of my many boxes was holding the Bernina BSR tool, I had to do without while being in Holland. Yes, bee-girls, I found it again!

Now I have to have a go with it, but it is such a long time ago I have used the BSR for the last time! As I want to applique the geckos with a free motion stitch, I better practice first on another piece of fabric.
Ciao from Brazil! Hilde


  1. I like it, I really do! The geckos add a bit of whimsy to a otherwise quite geometrical and somewhat sober quilt. Glad you found your tools. That's what I hate most about moving; there are always things which can't be found and it drives me crazy ;). Vreni x
