A beautiful morning.

The weather this morning was so beautiful. Almost zero degrees and sun from a blue sky. I should have been out for a walk, but I had make some plans for the class I will teatch how to use the Square in a Square- ruler. And by the time I had done it the weather was awful.......It was raining. So I miss the sun to day.Here are what I was working on. A little Storm at sea quilt. I made it in red and green and I think I'm going to name it "Storm in the Forest" because where I live there are no sea. I live almost as far as you can go from the sea in Norway.I will show how to make all the pieces in the class , so I will not do more untill after the class.
I also made this little tabel-runner from some of my leftovers.This are also a modell for the class. It is realy fun to play with the ruler.
Here are two of my January project. The snow-man are a BOM made by Kathy Schmitz. Called :Ring in the New. I have ordred it from Little Quilts. And the other are the first kit from Honeysuckle Cottage Christmas Club 2008. It is a Lynette Anderson Design. I love the both of them and are keeping an eye on the mail box hoping for the next shipment...
Last week I got mail from Quilt Books Usa, a Homespun magasin and a pattern from The Rabbit Factory,called Jacobs Garden. I saw it on Kathy Schmits blog and it was so great. I hope to be able to start making it soon. It has both piecing and applique. A great quilt I think and the name says it is a Must Do item.

Have a great day, I'm going to do a little more on my second blok of Butterfly Garden. I hope to show it next time...

I allmost forget to tell....I have signed up at Spring Filng Round Robin and are making the start block also. ;-)

I wonder if I need more to do now????
