New Start...



I have started to make blocks for my Polka Dot Girls quilt made by Red Brolly. I started to make it as a BOM from Katrines Quiltestue several years ago, but like a lot it had turned out to be a WISP... Wonder why that happen...
But some weels ago a friend of me told she had started to make the PDG-quilt,and we desided to make one block a month....This is my january block. It is block 4. My friend (no blogger) does the quilt in Japanese fabrics.I hope she will allow me to show her blocks sometimes. They are so great...The two following blogs are the two I made some years ago. When I look at them I see that I have learnd a lot about stitching... But I still like to stitch on cotton batting as big as the whole block.I don't remember which was my first block. But as this is the first block I belive this is the first...

And this the second one. It says block two in the pattern also.
I have become a member of Polka-Dot Girls Stitchery Group also. So now I REALY have to make the whole quilt.Here I have seen some lovely blocks. I wonder if there are more ladies in Norway who has PDG as a Wisp ? I can't remember to have see the quilt on any blog yet....
Yesterday I took a photo of my sewing area- it is such a mess. I have soooo mutch I like to make and do.. You can see my february block of PDG are ready to be drawn on. I use a brown Pigma Micron 005 pen. It suit me.The thread are cover it complete when I stitch, but I don't draw the shading, so I have to have the pattern with me to look at.
I have been clever and have done part three from the Pincushion club.The pattern are made by Melly and me. A lot of work but fun to do. I'm almost done with the next pincushion also. I will show you next time. And to day I got a new kit in mail. A lot of great things to make... This club are sooo fun. I love it.

This week are going to be another busy week. To morrow I'm going to Oslo and meet my two girls, and yes I'm going to visti Katrines..... I hope she has got somthing new to show me... I will also visit panduro also, they have the new book from Tilda... I think I need that...
On thursday there are a meeting in Elverum Quiltelag so I have a day to meet my friends there. I don't see them so often these days as I don't work in Elverum any more.So I have a lot to catch up....
Untill next time have some great quilt days.
Have fun with your friends... ;-)

Your PDG are soooo cute (I'm part of the Group, as well, but sooooo late in making it!). LOVE your bags also. What intrigues me are those lovely flowers (8 petals pieced together) on your sewing table. What are these ? (I'm sooo curious! HeeHee...)

KLEM KLEM

Hallo.
ufoer kan være til glede av og til. En trenger bare et spark bak. PDG er kjempefine. De stitcheriene er så koselige. De veskene er de nåleputer? Kom aldri så langt at jeg meldte meg på. Nå er det for sent tror jeg. Hadde egent. ment meg en tur til deg i morra, men ombestemte meg. og det var jo bra siden du har dratt bort. Tar en tur siden. Sees på torsdag. Klem.
