A respond to a nice comment from Linda

Hi Linda
Hope you visit my blog again and see this post.

You asked about the croched blanket in the photos with "Mr. and mrs. Hansen".
Here is some more photos of it.

It is made by a strong inspiration from this blog miaslandliv.blogspot.com.
I used Garn Studio`s Alpacka yarn. Crochet needle size 3. I don`t have a pattern for it. But it is in a wavepattern.

I love having a snooze under this one, it is really warm and comfy.

Linda, if you send me your e-mail adress, I will try and describe hove I made it.

Second sunday of advent

Lots of secret projects going on in this house now.
Have made time to light the candles for advent.

Tomorrow is the last meeting of the year with the girls in my guild "Saksequilten".

Wish you all a happy sunday evening

To day the parcel for SSCS arrived all the way from Noela Young in Australia.
I never guessed that you was my secret partner. Thank you for the present.

I have opened the little present, and to my joy found a chocolatebar and a lovely ornament.
I love it, thank you very much.

I am looking forward to see what`s inside the big parcel.

Wishing you a happy evening

The pattern is called "Gåsemor" in Norwegian, and is designed by Rie Norum.
It is a quilt I am handquilting. It takes some time to get done. Specially because I find so many other tempting projects to start on!!

I love handquilting, and would handquilt all my quilts if I knew I would have nine lives like the cat!!
But I do pick out some quilts to handquilt. Others I quilt on my machine or send  off to a professional.

This post is a response to a call for handquilters from Caron at blog.caronmosey.com
I will also ad a button to link to this call in my blog.


Meet Mr. and Mrs. Hansen

They arrived from Denmark last night.
After a good night sleep they are now ready to get to know their new home.

While waiting for these two I have been working on SSCS presents. Sorry can`t show photos of that, it is a secret.

I am starting to get ready for christmas.
Started on some tablerunners earlier this year. Are now handquilting one of those.

Pattern is from a norwegian designer, Trine bakke.

I am also having a go at making some purses.

The hexies are 1/4" and I used wool for the purse. The lining is under constrution at the moment.
Will post more about that later.

Have a great weekend

Here are a sneekpeek on some fabrics I have used

I am having so much fun.

....some snowmen having fun in the hills.

I finally got around to take photos of the book where I got the pattern for these from.

There has been some cooler days now, and I have tested them. They are truly warm, and do not itch. So now I am knitting another pair, in blue this time.

Wish you all a happy sunday

I am so lucky

A couple of months ago I was so lucky to win a draw at LA Quilter. blogspot.com.
She gave me a $ 50 gift voucher at fat quarter shop.com.

I have stalked the postwoman for weeks now, waiting for the parcel to arrive.
To day it happened.

This is what I ordered:

It is 16 FQ of "Peony Sweet Emilie" designed by Jo Morton
I love the colours.

Thank  you sooooo very much,  Vicki.

Last night I finished these "wrist-warmers"
They will be nice to have when the cold winter arrives in a couple of months.

For information about the yarn I used, contact Siw at quiltgården.

I am off to plan the project for my new fabrics.....

Jippi, I am so happy:-)

Some old stuff

A cold and the everyday chores have got the better of me last two weeks. Not much stitching going on.
I have signed on for SSCS 2011 by chooky. Have been checking out my partner, and am thinking a lot of what to make for her. Have started making the present, but can`t show it, it is a secret!

I am a new blogger, but I have been a quilter for some years now. Thought I would show some photos of some old stuff.

This is a quilt I made for DD and her dolls. She has now grown out of "pink princess". But her favorite doll still has it on her bed.

The quilt is handquilted and embillished with beeds.

I love to drink coffee...

Still like the fabrics. Have no room on my walls to hang it up, so it is kept in a cabinet.

This is a small one I use as a tablerunner.

This quilt is the first single bed quilt I finished.  It is handquilted.

Have a quilty day,

A Southern Star update

This morning i finished the last one. Have taken photos of all I have made during the summer. So here we go....

The fabric under the blocks is the one I will use as background. I bought it at my local quiltshop Quiltegården. last week. There is not much left of that fabric in the shop! Need alot to make this quilt as I am making it longer than the pattern says.
Now I am on to cutting fabric and prepering to applique the stars. Have not made many sircles to go on the stars, and there is the leaves on the borders to do too.
 I usually keep most scraps from projects, and some of them has gone in to this quilt. There is plenty of scraps waiting to be cut.
I look forward to keep work on it now when the autumn-rain sets in.

happy autumn
