JIPPI

This week I at last started to finish "Love Is" I have done all the stitchery about two years ago, but I had not sew it together and add the last border. When I went to work this week it looked like this....
And to day I add the last border and quilted it on my sewing- machine. I even sew on the binding..So now I will watch TV and do the hand sewing. I feel so great...A big UFO gone. ;-)
I have also been making designs to the shop djuring the last few weeks. These tabelrunners are finish , thanks to some lovely ladies visiting the shop. They had a long coffe break ,and sew the binding. I forgot to take a finish photo , but I will show you later.
I have done all the bottenhole stitching on this design. It is great to be me, sometimes I can't stand bottenhole stitching - I somtimes has bottenhole-decline.....;-) I'm going to add some stitchery and borders around on the design.
At last I will show you this beautiful photo of the river, Trysil elva. It is taken early one morning when I was hurry to catch the bus and going to woork. It was 6 degrees below 0 . Cold but beautiful.
At last I want to tell that my friend with the dairy and the little chikken has got a blog. She has a lot of great items, just take a look.

Now I have some hand sewing to do. Have fun and take care.
I'm counting down to get in a class with Leanne. My first class with her are on wednesday.I know she are in Oslo just now. :-)

You do such pretty work. I especially like the redwork, separated in different ways, with the sashing and little squares. I have a redwork project in process and I may use your clever ideas.

Så kjempefin Love Is teppet ditt ble. Nå er jeg ganske misunnelig, for mine blokker ligger pent i UFO haugen. Men ble inspirert til å ta dem fram no :)

What beautiful projects -- I love that stitchery quilt! As for the weather -- maybe I won't complain about our 50 F temps!
