I have been playing with fabrics and colours lately. These Owles are a challenge from Elverum Quilteklub. We are asked to do an Owl item this fall. The show and tell are not untill november, but as I'm in France then I have done it now,and will bring it with me on thursday.It is a " one of a kind" item,all made by me...  Yes I feel great about the way it turned out... :-)

I have alos manage to finish my " young and sexy" bath girls....  They are ready to come up on the wall in my bathroom..  Every morning I can look in the miror and see we look just the same....

Now it is back to my stitchery,I have a slooooow working on The Simple Life.... Just relaxing work...
Hope you all will have a great week. To day it has been sun shine, but cold to nigth...hope the snow keep away a little more.....   :-)

Hello Fall...

Suddenly it is Fall,and I can't remember the summer....did we get one here in Norway? There are a saying telling that in Norway there are two winters,and the green one are coldest.... It is true, but this year we have had a lot of rain,not so cold... Now there has been some great sunny days...remember DAYS, the nigths are cold... So Hello Fall...

I have been able to do some quilting,this old quilt,almost become 9 years before it was finish. A lot of great memoryes in the fabrics. I realy love the way it turned last :-)

I wonder why these two photos stay so close together...but ok. The stars are after an AnnAKa idea I just had to try my way.Fun and easy,and realt fast. Great to use as gifts.

And the owls are the same as I have done a lot of before,but this time I want to make some small. You can see the size of them beside the bobbin. The "big" one are made of two treads of DMC floss and the small one are with one tread... I only made one of each, :-)

To day I have made me a "new" lamp, I got the lamp from my oldest daugther,the angel from my mother,used some old fabrics and got the idea from my friend Lisbeth... So with a little sewing and a lot of glue it turned out like this...
My own angel to watch over me :-)

Even if I complane of the weather, I love all the seasons we got here in Norway.and  Fall are my time of the year,it got all the colours I love.Look at this great yellow flower,hope you can see all the Bumblebees in it.They are the tiny black spots... I wonder if they will live through the nigth...?

And as Fall are here now, it start to get close to Winter and Christmas... I'm so luckey to be a part of Elf Donnas SSCS 2012. (thanks Donna for hosting it once again) So now I realy have to think a little about Christmas gifts.... :-)

While I'm thinking I wish you all a great Fall/Spring.
Remember to take a minute and enjoy life.
Hugs :-)
