Lazy days...


There has been some lazy days on the sewing front,but busy, happy days in the family front. 
But I have manage to do something to show...and some secred work,not to show yet.
The two little tablerunners are mine,but may bee they can be christmas gift for some ..
Almost lookalike tablerunners ...these have gone out of my home..  As birthdays gifts...
Last time I showed a little box from a class with Bente Malm,the little box are so fun to make,so  had to make me one more..
At the end I have to show this quilt...made just for me...mine- mine- all mine...
It took a lot of thinking and a lot of work to make it, I spent a lot of time looking at astrology and my horoscope ,so every star says something abut me... 
So if you know something about astrology it will tell you something ..

About the secred sewing.....I'm a part of SSCS 2014 ...and my gifts are almost done and will go in the mail next week.... 

Have a great weekend,I have some symbolic stitching to do...
More secrets... :-))

Fall almost winter...


Yesterday was a beautifull day , Indiansummer,but to day it is raining,and I'm happy staying at home sewing a little.I think alle the great summerdays are gone for this year,may bee there will be snow next week. So I have to find all my wither clothes....
Even the trees by the shops here are dressed up for the cold days to come....
I have not been so clever with quilting and sewing lately,there are a cute little guy who need some winter items...
But I have mange to do a little sewing,the first of my little Anni Downs "must do" items. I'm realy slow stitching on more.... So during winter I hope to make more...
I have prepared for cold evenings with many meters of bindings.. Infackt some are gone away...Nemo took some of them,so sewing down binding are up to her.. Only (?) one tablerunner and 3 big quilts are waiting for me.... 
This weekend I'm, as told, staying indoors... I'm working on a onlineclass with Bente Malm.she are a Norwegian quilting teatcher and patternwriter. I love to sit at home with my coffe and radio working on small sewing items. I manage to finish this cute little box yesterday,all sew by hand. Not my best work,but I like it. I will make me more of this...

Part 3 ... The end of a busy weekend

This morning I startet to put the star together and adding the white fabric. With no pattern it had to be some try and add some more....
As you can see from my feet,it was a great hot day today...��

Magda was a great help holding everyting on the table when I add the batting and back... 
After this Magda went for a rest ,while Gretchen was ready to do some work. She did a great job too. 
I love to play with these two girls...;-)
So after Magda did the last work,the binding,I manage to have me a new quilt made in one weekend. 
Thank you Donna for hosting this fun. Busy days,but so fun.

First starting to sew fabrics together row by row...

Then a little break for Magda while I used my new iron...  :-))
