have seen the light..:O))
Worked with my oranges…
which was FUN… :o)
But I worked Toooo fast for my own good…
having Dad ill right in the middle of this quilts birth…
 and a deadline to keep..
so I delivered this quilt to my friend Åsa who had her birthday last Sunday …
Unfinished… or kind of.. :o)
Even the photos came out blurry so You have to live with that
.. or just scroll pass them..lol..
The pattern is a Cheri Saffiote Payne pattern (Again) :O)
from the magazine Primitive Quilts….
I used velvet to the pumpkin
  manchester to the flower centers…
 added a Happy Birthday text instead of the original text
 and here comes the OOOPPPSS!!!!
Forgot to add the berries!!!!
Stupid me…
And all the time while sewing the binding on.. I talked to myself… remember the buttons.. remember the buttons!!!!
Did that help!!
NAH!!! :O)
 So when Åsa packed up her gift I didnt see it( nor she)  either.. but after a while when sitting there drinking tea…
I saw IT!!!!! BLUSH!!
Happily we could laugh at it.. and she promised to sew on some pretty red buttons…
PHEWWW!! :O)
(Note to self:
DONT RUSH!!)
So here it is.. a little quilt without it´s berries!! :O))
See you all soon…
I hope..
Christmas is coming.. and this year I
MUST try to have gifts ready before Christmas!!!!
:O)

never thought I´d start to love orange…
but I have had some orange days over here…
maybe it´s the Autumn… ;o)
So I have started a new little project…
orange strips  and neutrals….
and some flowers…
otherwise days are back to some sort of normal here
…dad gave us a real scare and have been at hospital for chest and leg pain..
he is back home but…BUT… 

 

cant say that Im relieved… :o/
still something wrong…
Will have to keep an extra eye on him…
Days are getting shorter and shorter here.. dark evenings… 
and a black dog ain´t that easy to keep an eye on… 
guess it will be easier once the snow is here .. yuck…
That was a little from me…
must say I´d rather would have been with Leanne Beasley in Vietnam and “Imagine”…:O)

First …
A special thankyou to all of you who sent well wishes to Viktor….
He waves back a Thankyou.. and tells you he is Ok..:O)
Happily finished with my little quilt and my two surprises…
“A time to sew”
Pattern by Cheri Saffiote Payne…
but I used two different patterns…
I changed the center motif to a more sewing related one…
Close up of the stitchery…
The backside
The center….
And the finished little quilt….
I so liked the orange little flowers…
so the binding had to be orange and yellow!! :o)
And the green little packages were sent to my sewing buddies…
one surprise for Louise…
A blue version…
And one for Marica…
in brown, pink, green and black….
( so Louise.. you see.. I have used BLACK..;O)
They were all soooo fun to sew…
I had a really good sewing time..:O)
Hope to be in my sewing room for more adventures…
 so see you soon!!
 Love xoxo
