A busy day

Today I got my firewood oven installed, but I am not allowed to use it before next week. So I lightend up some candles upon it instead of firewood inside the oven. I am just using the oven to heat up my house and get it warm and cosy. I look forward to start using it when it freezing cold outside.

I had a day off from work today, and I'm beginning to feel much better after having the flu. My windows was dirty, and I cleaned everyone of them. Then I went to the shop and bought a little beautiful lightholder. Now it is hanged up in my kitchen window, with a little candle burning in it.


I started making two christmas gifts today :) Only 7 weeks left to christmas and I have to hurry up now. I know there are several of my relatives and friends who wishes a homemade present for christmas.

And I have continued applique on the last block for my "Country Whig Rose wall hanging" from the Simple Blessing book. I got a lot done while watching "71 grader nord" and "Bratcamp UK". I am so keen on getting this quilt done now.

Tomorrow I'm back at work againg. And in the evening I am going to the UFO-meeting. I have decided to bring my "Lazy crazy" quilt. I got this kit as a gift several years ago. When I found it in one of my ufo boxes I got a bit amazed. I thought I had done much more work on it. I had only made four blocks, but I had cut the fabric for the rest of the blocks. I can't understand why I stopped working on this. It is beautiful.

Take a look at the beautiful sunset this evening.

Hi May Britt! My computer is still not working properly but I have managed to get you a comment up. :) Could you "fly" on over to my house and clean my windows??? LOL They are soooo dirty. :( Girl, I do soooo love your applique blocks from Simple Blessings! I must pull my book out and dream over it again. Just lovely! Oh I hope you enjoy your wood burner as much as we are enjoying ours! :) So cozy on those cold winter days/nights. :)

I would be happy to send you some heat from here -- our high was 87 today -- too warm for me *s*

I really like the stove. It looks warm and cozy already. It sounds like you have a delightful day. Now, how about a relaxing evening?

Great wood stove, wish we had one, but I'm holding out for one for my cabin. And your window candle is cute, we always have candles burning. Nancy

I cleaned a couple of my front windows this weekend and that made me so much more cheerier as well. I am glad you are feeling better! xoxo melzie

The stove looks great! Glad you're feeling better. Have fun with the UFO group!

Your sampler Ufo looks good and so does your 1 hour a day quilt blocks.
I think I must have been sitting to close to the screen. I have caught your cold / flu I think.

WOW, WOW, WOW ! You did a great job, May Britt !
I love your new curtains : so neat and fresh ! (now I realize I have to wash my windows, too. Thanks !)
Your wood burner will bring you good warmth, I'm happy for you too.
It's amazing : 1)yesterday afternoon, we went to choose a new wood burner to insert in our chimney, 2) I've got Kim Diehl's "Simple Blessing" book. I just LOVE it but never tried a project, yet. Now, you're giving me the "push".....
(I should work a bit on my Christmas presents, too).
Biiiiig hug & smiles,

(PS : didn't know you had the flu, hope you're feeling much better now.)

NADINE.

Oh sure, make us crazy - 7 weeks till Christmas! YIKES! I love your little light holder and new oven! Very cozy indeed! and your Whig Rose is going to be awesome!

Susan said...

I love your wood stove, with the candles on top. That is a nice size, too. We had a 90 degree day today, so I don't think we'll need one for a while!

Your last block - can you believe it? This is going to be a very pretty top, and I look forward to seeing it.

I like candles, too, and often have one burning in a jar.

Susan said...

Oh, and I love your crazy patchwork quilt.

meggie said...

I love that quilt! How pretty.

Hei May Britt! Beklager at jeg ikke har svart deg før, men oppdaget kommentaren din først nå på bloggen min. Lappehjertet har jeg "komponert" selv ved å sy sammen sekskanter, før så å rett å slett skjære bort det "overflødige" for å få hjertefasong (slik at det blir halve diamanter av dem). Tilsvarende har jeg gjort på andre siden også. Enkelt og greit! Koselig at du fant fram til bloggen min - den handler om meg og mine interesser; interiør, lappeteknikk, hage og landliv.
