Cold January...

ØIt has been a beautifull but cold start on this year. Luckey for me I have been at home.I have been in my sewingroom most of the time playing with fabrics and feeding the woodstove.
The weather are so beautifull,staying indoors looking out,so I had to test my camera a little. This is a sunrise...
I have done my new mittens. They has been my " listen to the tv"work in the evenings.
In my sewingroom there has been a lot going on. I have or are a part of a FB sew-together group.The first challenge was to sew a Pluss quilt.I desided to play with my Tula Pink leftover fabrics,but it was not enough to make the quilt as big as I wanted it to be. So I started to play.... And add black....
I used mostly red fabrics for the binding after playing with the quilting.
And here are the quilt in the snow..... I'm satisfied with it, warm and big enough to put on my lap sitting in my couch. 
A few days ago I got my January bom from Sew Hot.... I have a friend who sometimes say: this fabrics make me breathless...and this is one of that.Blueberry Park from Robert Kaufman. I got a Charm Square so I had to get so mutch leftover as I could. I will show the bom when it is done. I will make it in PP... Not my favorite,but a girl have to do what a girl have to do :-)
I desided to use smal triangles in a miniature quilt.( another groupe challenge ) I still has 3" square leftovers from the charm squares to play with. 3 items from one pack , not bad :-)
 Here are my mini quilt. I had to add one little grey triangle...I think I manage to cut one piece wrong.

I have a beautifull reminder of summer in one of my windows. A great amaryllis. 

I hope you all are having great sewing days.
I will be back soon with more to show,if the weather are going to be this cold for another week or so...
Hugs :-)

Snow at last....

Happy new year!
The start of 2016 has been cold and we got snow this week. Both are beautifull when I'm in side lokking out. But 26.5 degrees below zero are a little to cold. The last days it has been snowing,cold feather-light  snowflakes,almost so you just can go out and blow it away. 
I love it when the trees looks like this. :-)
While the world  outdoors are pure white I love to play with colors in my sewing room. 
I could not say no when I was asked to be a part of litamoras Plus Quilt Sew Along 2016. 
It is a great way to use my Tula Pink leftovers and charm packs. This is how far I came today. Now I have to think about how to finish it.... 
I love to play with Tula Pink fabrics. This is my Chrysanthemum Heart pillow. I got the idea from the one Siw at Quiltegården had when visiting Elverum Quiltelag before Christmas. This is a Paper Pieces even I could make. PP are not my favorite ...
More Tula Pink... The pattern and fabrics are one of Sew Hot's Mini of the Month Clubs items. 
This is a great Bom,I got a new pattern with new in stock fabrics every month for a year. 
At last I will show you my new knitted socks. They are named Patchwork socks and the pattern are made by Pinneguri. I got them in my advent calendar from Nemo. There was a pattern to make mittens too.... Guess what I'm doing while listening to TV in the evening now .... ? 
Now of to knitting,hope to be back soon to show my new mittens.... :-)
