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...

Running days..

Days are running almost too fast- or I have too mutch I want to do... I have a lot of things I want to do - a large pile of fabrics I want to use and plenty of new patterns and ideas it would had been soo great to do. But I'm not the only one who got plenty of "want to do" items I guess.
Still I manage to buy me some new Quilt magasines this weekend. With more new ideas... Emma also found great pictures on the front of the latest of Love of Quilting magasine.

The last weeks I have got a little "snow-baby" outside in garden. The snow lump looks like a little baby if you have a great imagination. May be it is going to be a snowman when it grows up :-)
But back to what I have manage to do..... One more finish from the Stitching club.. A little Gail Pan stitcery "My Sweet Home"This Stitchery of the Month Club has been soo fun with all the great pattern. I'm working on the last one now while I'm watching/ listening to the OL winter games... It is going to be a lot of hand sewing the next two weeks.
I have made two Toilet bags also this month. I made several as christmas gifts,but there was some one who didn't got one. :-) It is a fun and easy AnnAKa patten.
I have been so luckey to get some great gifts. A lovely little needlecase from Karen. Thank you soo mutch ;-) I love to get new needlecases to my collection. And this was a great surprise to get in mail.
And this beautifull "pulsvanter" ( mitten without fingers) from Lapphøna. She are such a great knitter. Take a look at her blog. Thank you - I love them ... ;-)
I have got some more great mailings... The last kit from the Stitching Club- Lynette Andersons pattern Strawberries and Cream. ( my TV woork) and the first kit from The Bagalicious club.Also in progress.

If I look at my sewing desk there are a lot of "almost done" items... So to morrow I will try to start my sewing mashine and do some more items ready for hand sewing- still a lot of OL events to listen to. :-)
