Happy new year

These christmas days have gone so fast. Tomorrow it's new years eve. A new year is waiting for us. A new year with new thread, new stitches and new colours. I want to thank all of my bloggerfriends for your company during 2007. It have been a pleasure to visit your blogs. All the inspiration, joy and fun we have shared.

So to all of you my dear bloggerfriends


I wish you all


I look forward to meet you again in 2008.



My sewingroom have been occupied as a guestroom this christmas. But today I have removed the bed and put up my sewingmachine again. So next year will be starting with my dear sewingmachine.

But I've done a little stitching. I've finished my Peace and Plenty which I started on the class with Leanne Beasley. So I hope to add the border around it now when I've unpacked my sewingmachine again. But I have no frame yet so I won't get it up on the wall before I have bought that. I love this stitchery and know exactly where to hang it in my house.

And when this stitchery was finished I started on some small stitcheries. I bought this pattern from Jordbærstedet and I had traced all stitcheries so they was ready to be worked on while my sewingroom was occupied. I have done six out of twelve small stitcheries and there is also one big to do. It is a adventcalender, but I want to use it as a wallhanging for next christmas. OMG this means I very very very early for next years christmasplans .......yoooohoooo!!!!! Here are photos of the six small stitcheries I've made so far.

Saying for today:
Youth is when you're allowed to stay up
late on New Year's Eve.
Middle age is when you're forced to.

Koselig mønster du har kjøpt. Det er fint med stitchery når symaskinen er nedpakket. Har vært innom bloggen din nesten daglig og du lager mye fint. Inspirerende har det vært. Ønsker deg også et riktig godt nytt og kreativt år!

I LOVE your Peace and Plenty stitchery. I just sent my check for leanne's Butterfly quilt with the same themes but now I want this piece to go with it.

Very inspiring! Thank you for sharing with us.

The Leanne stitchery is really cute, but I love the ones for your wall-hanging. The little house at the bottom of the list is so cute!

You have gotten so much done this year - I can't imagine what all you would have gotten done if you hadn't had shoulder problems!

Your little stitcheries are perfect - of course! How you must have enjoyed making them. I wonder what it is about all the overseas designers - designers in your country, Australia and others. It seems the American designers just haven't caught onto the idea of combining stitchery with quilts the way others have. I never see anything half so attractive from American designers as I do from foreign designers.
