Yesterday I had to find a friend from years ago. My little old Bernina ,who I got a long time ago. Almost 30 years I think it must have been since I got her. She had made a lot of clothes when my daugthers was small, and she was a part of my early start in the Quilt world.... And now she has got a new start. (Short I hope) My Janome has got some data problems and are on hers way to see the sewingmaskin-docktor. I hope it will be a short stay....I realy love all the data-stuff when it works. ;-(
I have some realy good friends..... some days ago one of my friends , Lisbeth, called and asked where I was thinking to put my thimbles and askes if I want to have her case. I think that was a silly question. Of course I want it. ;-) So thank you Lisbeth, you are so kind. ;-) Look how great my thimbles my looks, and they has realy good space. I need more thimbles, so now I know what to whish if sombody askes. I have put some of my small angels in the case as well.
Yesterday Lapphøna and I persunade our husbonds to take a trip to Lillehammer. Of course we had a reason to go. We had not visit the quilt store ,Quiltespesialisten, since two years ago. I had no acute need for fabrics, but when I got out on the street these great fabrics had steal their way into my handbag......It is realy hopless to be hard in a Quilt store. I even got me some new thinblers. One from Lillehammer and the other from Skibladner.
Look what I have manage to do with the fabrics I bougth at Katrines Quiltestue when I was in Oslo some weeks ago. I have started on the Simple Pleasures Quilt. ;-) To day I have prepare 5 more smal stitchery blocks. I think I will do mostly hand sewing untill I got my maskine home...
I also work on several Swap's Here are a sneak peek on my Four Seasons Quilt Swap. The summer quilt. Starting to get ready to take a trip out in the world. I have also started on my Miniature Booty Quilt.... and to day I have signed up at The Stitched Angels Swap...Always enough to do. I also work on some Gift Quilts that I will show later.....
To day I read on Kim's blog that there were snow in Bundarra....I'm so happy I got summer. But I want to wish every body who like snow in July A merry July Christmas. Take care and enjoy snow.....I will enjoy summertime as long as I can get it.
Love what weather you get, if it rains you can sew. Have fun and take care.
