Off to class.....

My first post in May. Have I really not posted anything since monday. Time just rush away.
What have I been up to these last days. I have prepared my strawberry table runner from one of AnnAKa's patterns. I love strawberries and wanted to make this. So I have been out in the sun on my porch doing the applique on it. It procedes very slowly because of my bad arm. The doctor told me to keep my arm completely off sewing (have you heard anything THAT stupid), but you know......... I have to sew a little bit. If not I am getting crazy (read; more crazy than I'm already)

Now I have packed my fabrics, sewingmachine and other sewing gear to go to a class this weekend. It is here in Elverum so it is not far to drive. We are going to make a christmas- or a summer/spring table cloth. I had planned to do both, but perhaps I should take it a bit easy (due to my arm) and make just one of them???????????
Here is the fabric I have chosen. Red and cream for the christmas, and white, cream and romantic flowers to the spring/summer.
I'll bring my camera and show you later. The sun is shining and it will be a warm beautiful day. I wish we could bring our sewingmachines outside in the sun.
Saying for today:
You know you're a quilter
when you have more quilting ideas than time .

You runner is so lovely. What a perfect way to welcome Spring! Have a great time at your class :-)

It is so inspiring to read your blog and see the pics of your lovely work. Your doctor must be more crazy than you to suggest that you don´t sew at all. Hilsen fra Island.

Wait, wait, I want to go. Oh, shoot, I think you've already left. :-( LOL

Hey, I like the luggage for your project - perfect size. I'm going to have to search for one of those. I use one on wheels when I go on a retreat but it's too big for classes or day sewing with friends. I also use a basket but if it topples over everything is everywhere in my car. Ugh! I really like your idea - everything fits perfectly.

I love your strawberries! I'm planning to make some cherry "stuff" but haven't started yet--which must mean I'm a quilter since I have more ideas than time! LOL! Have fun at class!
