Still playing with UFO's...
To day my little mobile and I was luckey.We got a "mobile mitten"
Vigdis made one for her mobile some days ago - and we envy her mobile his mitten ... She are a fast knitter...I'm a veeeery slow one :-)
But to day when Lisbeth - another fast knitter- come over for some coffe and chatt.. she gave me this mitten. Luckey me :-) Thank you Lisbeth, We love it :-)
I have been quite busy for the last days... Making more Japanese Boxes... Still fun , but I have started to think how to make the border... I have seen some great appique borders, but I don't remember where- so now I'm looking to old books and magazines for some ideas...
Me and Magda has been working a lot the last week. First we have done this beautifull place mats. I got it as a kit for Christmas from my friend Bjørg. She are a great designer. I feel so luckey to get make some of her designs. :-)
Magda and I have also - at last -manage to finish this UFO.. Simple Pleasures by Anni Downs. I stitch all the small stitcheryies in 2008...and made the top 2009... but forgot to read the pattern.... Hmmmm. so I forgot one white border...ok back to the UFO pile with it... Refound last year.. what to do with it ... RICk-RACK is the answer.. and buttons on the last border. Old buttons :-) So this is my way of Simple Pleasures. :-)
I just have to show you another of my Christmas gifts.. From Emms and her mum.. A Cup Cake stand. Isn't it just great.So now I know what to make the next time I got some quilting girls over for coffe :-)
Have a great week end.. Happy Mothers day and Valentine :-)
