Olympic work.....

Jacob and I have "busy" days looking at the Olympic ...... realy hard work. "We " got silver by Marit Bjørgen earlier to nigth ( puh) and later to nigth it will be at last one more silver.... or may be gold in curling. All this TV watching allow me to do a lot of UFO's and keep Jacob from pluck of his feather.( He use to do that when he is bored.)
I have not only been busy sewing - I manage to order some new Thread. Cottage Garden Thread. I have heard a lot about it- first from Leanne and Gail when they were in Trondheim and I have read about it on different blogs. I have not started to stitch with it yet, but soon. I got my tread from Siw at Quiltegården. She also gave me a tip to wash in in water with vinegar so the colour won't come of . Just in case ;-)
Now fore my OL work.... The first bag from the Bagalicious Club. I had to exchange the fabrics. The green with writing on was so beautifull so I had to put it on the front of the bag. :-)The first Designer was Sweetwater - and now I wonder who made the next bag pattern...
I have also manage to make one more kit from the Stitchery of the Month Club, My Folio by Melly and Me.I'm working on the last of this kit's.I got them from Under The Mulberry Tree. It has beenso fun to get all this kits in mail. I hope there will be more fun sometimes. When I have made all the kits I will show them.
I have manage to make me new Table mats.They are "Broderusk" from Nothern Quilts named "Muse Broderusk" ( Mice- stitchery) Only three in the pattern but I mixt two pattern to get the fourth.
I feel happy manage to do all this finish in February, now I have to start on my March OPAM 2010. I got a lot of items to choose from so the problem will be what to pick.. LOL

Happy stitching - The boys with the "funny" pants have started to fight fore the Gold - or Silver.
I will watch the Curling game a little if I can keep my eyes open...
