A little bit sewing today

I tryed to get my focus back on quilting today. And this is what I found in one of my boxes. I started this one earlier this year. It is a pattern from one of my favorite books "Simple blessings". I started doing this to have something above my sofa on the empty wall. This is how far I got with it. Now I have prepared for the last block. Hopefully I will finish this quilt........sometime.

Several bloggers have showed their collections. I collect thimbles. My family and friends are always buying thimbles for me from places they have visited. I am always looking for special thimbles.

I also collect pins from different quilt groups. I made this little quilt to put my pins on. And the quilt lady is watching over my pins. Most of the pins comes from quilt groups in Norway, but I also have some from abroad.
