These last weeks have been spent hours and hours ( very early hours!!!) in the sewing room…
to have this quilt finished…
81 small blocks.. made into nine bigger blocks…
Lots and lots of stitchery!!!
(well not every block was sewn last week… but I thought I had made them all…
so Marica I lied to you!! :o)…
When I started to look for them it almost drove me crazy… and couldnt figure out where they were… deeep sigh…. and another one… deeper this time…  had to bite the dust and remake them… but while sewing them… I remembered not having them made… stupid me… :o)
Wont tell which quilt it is.. you´ll have to wait and see… :o)
some of you might guess it…
but schhhhhh…
So it is right now at my sewing table being quilted…
and oh please please cross your fingers for everything to go just fine…
have had some thread breakages…
hop stitches…
and other annoying issues…
And as usual… changed needle to a higher number… changed thread… and slowed my speed… and keeping my tongue right in my mouth!!!
Is there anything else I could do…lol…
Any other tips …
most welcome!!! :O)
See you!

and it feels so so
GREAT!!!!
Didn´t have so much time to figure out what to take with me…
so this project was almost packed in bags…so I decided to
PRESS…
everything in… the suitcase…. and added a few extra things if
I got bored to sew on my project… :o)
I sew at the kitchen table…since we dont eat here…LOL…
dont have time for that… :o)On Wednesday I worked on a secret project..so that I cant show…
And this was the project I had in my bag….
“Butterfly Garden” by Leanne Beasley!!!!

Still not finished after almost two years…
SIGH!!! :o)
But Im working on that…
This is my first blocks…

Hmmm.. the table looks pretty tidy here …
doesnt it??? ;o)
Well after a couple of days of sewing it doesn´t anymore… lol..
Have some more blocks ready to be stitched on.. will take some more photos
when it is light…This one sits on Louise designwall…

Edit…ooops!!!
(Wrong way ..but you get the point..;o)It is the start of one of Bonnie Hunters quilt patterns…
“Old Tobacco Road”
It will be another gorgeous quilt!!!
( Will show some quilts made by her later)

Louise sews too..:o))
First days she started to tidy up…lol…
One cant sew if not.. at least I cant…
She sewed together all her little scraps to fun little blocks..
Hmmm.. why didnt I take a picture of those…
I´ll ask her… they are such a great way to use scraps for!!!

Here she is preparing a quilt for a little girl…
The quilt is so so sweet and very brilliant!!!
I love it… :o)
Louise will have a hard time giving it away…

And she got started on the quilting last night…
…and finished the quilting too…and put the binding on…
Hope I can show the almost fiished quilt later…And after that she started a new one..lol…
then the clock was past midnight and we called it a day…

And today its a new sewingday..
I will continue with my blocks…
and so will Louise… :o)

So see you later…

….Hmmmm…they have been dissapering one by one …day by day… and finally I found them… They have been at a race…didn´t know that… wow…a competition for pins!!!
My son have been sneaking up to my sewing room the latest days for something..I have been asking him …what are you doing …nothing mom!!! he said…ok… i said…
This is what he have been doing… 😉
So ladies this is the result so far… yellow is in the lead!!! :)
Have been sitting nicely and been a very good girl these days …not using my sewingmachine… Wednesday I was at my chiropractor and fixed me to a better Stina… I hope!! 😉
And he said…-LADY… no SEWING..!!!
Ok I said…very quiet… 😉
But I promise I have been as good as I can…
I have stitched on my Butterfly Garden… YES!! I have finally started…have been on my to do list since X-mas…you see I have had this idea in my head for ages…I wanted my blocks to be very light and a bit oldfashioned…so I used linen and a new thread with just a hint of pink from DMC… So I just had to try it out… this is how it turned out..
…and I love it… didn´t think it would show up as much as it did…but it does !!
…and used swedish in the sayings… thanks Leanne for writing the words… (she did this when we were in Norway…or to be exact when she got back to Australia) Thanks!!
…some stitchery…this is what I love with Leanne Beasleys patterns…they have stitchery, applique and patchwork and finally quilting in them… The Best!!
…So this is my block 2… started with that one just to see how my idea where going to be!!For the moment I should be packing instead of sitting here and blog…cause I´m off to Marica for a long long wished-for weekend with my sewing girls!!!
So see you on Sunday!!
Promise to take some pictures…and I guess Marica will blog some… :)
