Louise have planted flowers under it…
And dont you just love this!!!!

…At least I do… :o)
In a couple of years it will be amazing…

Scraps..
Dont we all save them..
Ok .. I know some dont..
but I cant throw my tiny scraps away..
And Louise sure can´t either…
This is what she does with them…

…plaid ones….
made into blocks…
she will soon have enought blocks for a whole quilt…
I know I long to see it!!!
…strips and odd piecs sewn together …
and she have LOTS of these ones too!!!! :o)

I promised you some pictures of quilts Louise have made recently…
so enjoy!!!!

The first one is the pink fourpatch quilt..quilted and just binding to sew on…

It is so gorgeous!!!

Next one is from a Cheri Saffiote Payne pattern…

“Embrace the Day”
I love how she uses her brights …

Next one is made from a pattern…

“Mosaic flowers “
or I think its called “Tesselations”…
Done in lovely ME fabrics…

Next one is a pattern made by Bonnie Hunter…

“Pineapple Blossom”

Can you tell Louise loves brights…:o)

But I think this one is my favourite of them all..
her quilt made of shirts …

Isn´t it just fantastic!!!!
This makes me want to go home and drag out some shirts and get a go!!!

Tomorrow Im on my way home…
9 hours on the bus back North..
Have my stitching prepared…:o)

So when I come home on Monday..
I will wait for my Mum to come…
She have had instructions to come to me..

( this is almost killing her..lol)
And on Tuesday morning I will take her on
“A Surprise Road Trip”

I have had wonderful days here.. but way to short and
heaps of fun!!!

So Im taking some time out.. and will be back after my Road Trip….

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)

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…
