still here…
didn´t get lost in the sewingroom.. .
or even worse …got attacked by some awful dustbunnies!!! :o)
Im on the run!!!!
(but more of that later…)

Report from my sewingroom…
Got an idea just in the middle of all the cleaning up..
I needed a designwall !!!!

So DH went away and bought a styrofoamboard..
I put fabric ontop…glued..with hotglue…
Aooouuchhhh!!!! :o)

And wow.. It worked beautifully…:o)
But I had to reaarange everything in the room.. sigh…
so it became even more MESSY!!! lol…

TV…had to go…
but that was a good thing…
…fabric moved….
…empty cupboard moved…
isnt this a great cupboard??? :o)
…filled again on its new place…
Ohh.. I love this one.. its perfect!!! :o)
And this is a view of where I sit and try to be creative…..
…and this is what I see from my sewingarea now…
MY NEW DESIGN WALL!!!!
Woohoo..to great ideas!!!
and cheap ones…:o)

Ok..
I said I ran away…
and so I did…
a fast decision…some telephone calls…
a bus trip…

well…
not so fun trip..this was my view..for about 5 miles or so…
pretty or what…
NO… this is the backdoor of the bus..there was no place to sit in the bus.. and me and another girl had to sit at the stairs…
Pheew…
But I survived.. reached my destination…
To the home of John and Louise..
for a week of Sewing fun!!!
We celebrated their anniversary one night…
and I got to meet their lovely grandchild…
Olivia…
and..wow..she really wanted to have some dessert…
she just sucked on to the foot of the glass..and didnt want to let go!!!
What a sweetie!! :o)
Over and out..and back with some sewing later..
See you !!!

Since I´m not sewing or do anything crafty at all…
I can show you what my talented friend Louise is up to…

This is her January finish…
isn´t it lovely… :)
The log cabin blocks will always look nice together whatever fabrics you use…
and this version with blue/purple and cream/white fabrics is so nice…

….. Mmmmm …it would look great in pink feedsack don´t you think… 😉
I need to make myself a log cabin quilt!!!
Someday… :)

This is a quilt she made this summer…correct me if Im wrong here Louise…
It is made from a Jelly Roll and a Charm Pack…

Love the “springish” colours in this one…
handquilted with fans all over…
a little beauty!!

Hope Louise will provide me with some more finishes during the months from now on…so I have something to show you… :)

Today I have been a really good girl…
taking it really slow and have been really careful.. I watched the video on How to Machine Applique… got some Aha …moments… and I will definetly try this technique out some day!!!
Take care out there in the big big world…

So here are mine finishes…
…and here are my speedy friend Louise´s finishes…
and no she still hasn´t gone into the blogging world…But I´m happy to show them…how couldn´t I…they are wonderful!! And some lovely flowers from her garden…
…and I know a lot of you have asked where I do these pictures…and I use Mosaic Maker
And I know some of you use Picasa…but they don´t have it for Mac yet …
