What I have been working on this week

Most of my thoughts has gone to all those affected by the bombing and shouting in Oslo and Utøya. Have spent most of the week doing fun stuff with my children.
I have also been doing some stiching. These are so fun to do. I now have about 33 blocks. Don`t know how many there will be at the end.

I have some work to show, just have to get the photos sorted.

I`ll be back soon.

All my thoughts

goes to those involved in the insidens in Oslo and on Utøya today.
Can`t belive that this has happened. It is just so sad.

This is me....

...on monday that is.

 I am planing to spend some quality-time on this quilt. Looking at some of my latest purchases. Maybe get tempted to start a new quilt!

It is one more day at work until 4 weeks of holiday.
I am soooo looking forward to that. No plans, just go along with the day and see what happens.

Acctually, I feel the need to show that I do, really I do finish projects!
This was finished in 2010. The pattern is from a book called "Quiltegleder" by Hilde Krogh og Rie Nordum.
It is one of my favourite quiltbooks. I have spent hours looking at the photos in it. Will post a picture of it later, don`t know where it is at the moment.

Here are some close-ups:

It is quilted by machine, in the ditch around the four-patches and I used "borders made easy" on the green striped fabric and on the border.


PS! found another two of my southern stars:

Have a great summerevening.

A sunny afternoon

We have just had a small thunder-storm passing by. Now it is sunny and warm again.
As I promissed yesterday I have some more photos of what I have been working on the last couple of weeks. So here we go:

These are the last three photos I have of the stars, I have made more stars but have no photos yet.


Earlier in the spring I bought this book. I want to make the basket-quilt in it. I am planing to use some scrap frabrics to make the quilt. Do have a lot of that!
I love the way the baskets turn out, but it is going to take a looong time to finish.

This is another of my projects, it is "Night before christmas" of Crabapple Hill. It is lots and lots of stichery on it. I started on it last autumn and will be working on it for years to come I think!
This is the first part I have stiched, and there is lots more. Will show more photos as the work progress.

I have lots more quilts I am working on, but have not taken any photos yet. Will post more about those later. Wish you a happy quilty sundag.

Days are flying

I have one more week left at work until 4 weeks of holiday.
Have been doing some stiching also.

Still making some more stars

There has been some birthday-kids in my family. Made the 11-year old girl a bag for her little secret things.

Here is a close-up of the stichery

To the 10 year old boy I made a bag with pockets and the first letter in his name applied on.

Here is the front

and back

For the 5 year old , boy again I made a treasery- bag with stichery of a rabbit- pirate on it. The motif is a pattern from "Jordbærstedet"

Here is the bag

and here is a close-up of the motif, the cutest rabbit-pirate ever...

I have lots more photos of what I have been working on, it will be in the blog tomorrow.

Until then, have a nice saturday-night.
