Start of the dark fall...

Now it is the start of the dark time of the year... It is the time when I love to sit inside and stitch by the fire...
I have manage to get some finish this last week... I have to start to use my new sewing area... So after a year Butterfly Bouquet are done. I start to make it at Quiltegården when Leanne and Gail where in Norway.
The other finish this time are a coat for Peder. I belive he need it now- the summer are gone in Oslo too.
I even got some new thimbles to show you. I got them from Bjørg- I don't remember where it is from ( Bad memory?? ), Lisbeth from Riga and my brother Bjørn who has been on Svalbard. Thank you all, I love the thimbles.
Guess who are feelig great?? I'm done with the challenge from the quiltguild. It is Abyquilt who are giving us this challenge...Two new blocks next month, a new little quilt by summer. Fun ;-)


I promise her , May Britt to show photos from my new sewing rooms, when it is all done and every thing are tidy... Well as tidy as it can be... Ok I have to get up some little curtain here to spare the fabric...
Here in my sewing room Here I need all the ligth I can get... Ups... some one has been using it. There are leftovers on the table ;-) I have made the top of Red Brolly's Christmas quilt from Homespun. (Show you later )
Here are my sewing room from the door- notice the radio., I play music when I sew.. To day it was Dr Hook - Yes I know-- A big surprice for the people who realy know me ;-)))
I know there will be a lot of music from this rooms now ;-)

There are two small "ladies" I have wanted to show you for a long time. Are they not beautiful - I got them years ago from Nemo. She was only a school girl when she made them for me.The one in the yellow dress are named Whoopi Dollberg. Think you all can tell who she named her after..

This days I'm moving around and organize almost every thing in my home, so may be there will be more fun and sweet memories to show you next time. Untill then have fun and take care.
HUGS :-)

So good to see you in sewingmodus again. Your sewingroom is so light and you will have so many good times in it. The dolls are so cute :) I noticed them when we were moving your stuff, but forgot to comment them.

I am so happy to see you are sewing again :-)

Can't wait to visit - and test your new sewing room. ;)

I _think_ the pattern for the dolls were in a Homespun (or similar) magasine years ago.. I might even have the pattern for the body somewhere.

The jacket looks really good - Peder's looking forward to using it (especially the mornings are getting chilly here in Oslo).

Looking forward to Wednesday! ;););)
