Sewing together with msn

Today me, Hanne, Nancy, Sigrun and Sølvi have had a "get together and sew" on msn. We live so far from eachother so we can't just meet and sew together. We started yesterday and continued today. We met at msn and had a good chat and told eachother what we intended to do today. Then we set a time when we should meet at msn again to tell the progress in our projects.

I started to make these makeup purses yesterday. And today I finished them. It's a Tilda pattern and I have made many of these earlier. So easy to do the zipper in this. I will find some cute buttons and add them onto the heart later.

Next projects was hearts. Last year I embroidered a lot of small stitcheries which I ment to use in these hearts, but time went to fast and I did not manage to make them. I found the pieces today and now I wanted to make them. So I have finished one heart.....................
and prepared for six more. I will add buttons, laces and beads on them when they are finished.

and when you have worked two days on the sewingroom, all is a mess. I do not dare to show you the rest of the room, that's a complete mess LOL
My next report on the msn with the others are at 22:00, until then I will relax with this little stitchery. In english it says "relax, christmas will come regardless" (this was tricky to translate, but I hope you understand the meaning)
Saying for today:

Wow, you've been busy! Sewing via the computer with your friends must be super enjoyable. A friend and I used to have sew by phone days. Turn on the speaker phone and chat while we worked in our sewing rooms. LOL

I'm just starting to do some embroidery again but I don't like working in a hoop. Are you stitching this to a piece of batting without a hoop?

Sølvi said...

Hei, i dag tek eg det på norsk... Eg testar framleis toalettveskemønster. Er dette den Tilda-oppskrifta der du syr foret fast i lag med glidelåsen og vrenger? Og du seier det er lett? Eg har prøvd ei slik, men fekk problem...Har du ei god løysing? Elles så ser eg at de kosa dykk med sysaman i går. Kjekt! God helg!Her i vest er det eit forrykandes ver i dag...

Great make up bags. Where ever did you find that pattern? From all the other people that have asked it looks like there might be some makeup bags in the future.

These purses look great, you have to take care of your arm not sewing to much. Great idea using MSN to connect and sew.
