New books and fabric

Today I visit the quiltshop. Kristin Pollen is the author of a new book which was released last week. Now she was in our quiltshop signing her new book. She is very talented and always uses norwegian nature for inspiration. This book is called Natures quiltroom (hard to translate it propper) The book contains only table runners and there are a lot of beautiful patterns in the book. Look at the one I just had to buy fabric for. Apple green, moss green, yellow, brown and black.


Yesterday two books that I have ordered arrived. Bareroots "Down to Earth" and "Tildas hus" ("Tildas cabin"). Tilda is another talented norwegian designer. Look at the cute bathroom angel in the book!!!!!! There was plenty of small ideas in this book. And I love Bareroots patterns. They always have such beautiful stitchery. In this book there was a round table cloth I fell for.

And still I am waiting for two other books ordered from amazon. Do you think I will be lacking ideas during this winter.



Now I will enter my sewingroom. My boyfriend is out doing som carpenting and my DD is sleeping after her trip to Praha. Do my 15 min of CQ, preparing my swingskirt for the party next weekend. I remember having a black swingskirt and manage to find it. Luckily I have saved it, but it is several kilos since I used it. So now I am fixing it. And then I have to make the underskirt. My DD has now a red swingskirt and she looked so adorable in it. I will show you pictures of us all next weekend when we are going to the party. My DS and his girlfriend is also comming and they love dressing up like this. I know my DS is going to have the James Dean look.

May, I have found your Blog from the crazy quilt connection. I so enjoy how much you get done! I am envious. I want to start doing crazy quilts but don't have the skills for the heavy embellishment so its even more fun seeing your ideas! Have a great weekend! Its one of our first cool weekends in sunny Southern California, fall is finally here too.

I love that yellow fabric May Britt. The fabrics you have chosen look lovely together. New books is almost as good as new fabric, so I understand your excitement. Amazon is slow, isn't it?
