A lot in progress....

This last weeks I have been working on all these free BOM . I have collect them, but just left them on my desk. Now they are almost done! I decide to made one block each day,and I almost manage to do that.. It will be fun to see how the quilts are going to look like...It will be fun to put them together....
I got me more to do, remember this pattern and the Cosmo floss? I have to try the floss but I need more floss so I ordred it from Crabappel Hill. Now I just have to start to stitch the pillow..When ever I got time with all my projects.....
I collect floss this days.. When I was in Oslo I went to Katrines quiltestue and got all the new DMC floss.It looks like candy. I need some of them in The Gingham Girls quilt, and because I cant get it here I just got to have them all... ;-) I didn't buy mutch more, just some fabrics to stitch on and a lovelt red frabric , it almost jumped into my bag with the pattern...The pattern are from Stitch Studios, new for me, but it will be a great Tote - some day ;-) I meet some friends from Elverum in the shop. ( It was soo fun to run into you girls- Hope you had a great day and got a lot of lovely buyings.. Hope to see you again soon - Hugs)
I also had to make a quick stop at Panduro . I got some sweet fabrics and the Butterflie box there... Luckey me ;-)
I have got a lot of presents this summer... Nemo and her boy friend has been at Iceland for their hollydays... They had a great time and look what I got.. great thimbles and Quilters Home... I love that magasine but it seems hard to get here in Norway. I use to get it at Narvesen in Oslo, but not any more... wonder why... HM
My thimble collection has grown a lot , these I got in a second-hand fair here in Trysil. I also got this old pincushion with room for thread.I have to fix it so I can use it when I do Needle turn, the pincushion are filles with sawdust. Not easy to put pin in...
I have got a lot more thimbles from great friends- but I have to show them next time...
I have not been working on my Polka Dot Girl quilt tis summer. It was one of my goal, to get it all done-I realy need a restart on it. But I got myself a great Polka Dot girl... ;-)

Have a great day...
Hugs.

Your free BOMs are coming along nicely, I've got a bit of catching up to do!
I'm building up my collection of DMCs too, only another 50 or so and I'll have a complete set :-)

Love the photo of Emma. She is growing sooooo fast. And she is so cute. I guess she soon will play with grandmothers buttons and floss.

What is the difference between the Cosmo floss and the old DMC? Is that really Emma on the picture???

Jeanne said...

Lots of beautiful blocks, Laila! I always enjoy seeing what you are working on. Emma is adorable!

I see that you are actually doing the free blocks of the month. Good for you. So far, I have just printed the patterns out.
I have a thimble collection, too, but no longer add to it. I prefer the vintage metal ones with the advertising bands on them.
