Hanne and I have had a sewing challenge today. We agreed what to do and had a lot of reports to eachother on msn all day. My task today was to quilt these five small wallhangings, applique three hearts on each and put the binding on. And when all this was done I could start on my prize. And I manage to finishe what I had planned. So now I just have to sew the binding down. Thats perfect job in front of the tv.
And then I started on my prize. This morning I got a newsletter from Northern Quilts with a very beautiful pattern. And when I was in our local quiltshop this morning I discovered they had almost all the fabrics that was used in this wallhanging. I bought it and Hanne and I agreed later that our prize for doing all tasks today was to start on this :)
And now I have sewed the top together, appliqued on the three and the gingerbread hearts. And the writing says: Tenn et lys, sett deg ned, kjenn julefryd og julefred. In english: Light a candle, sit down and feel the christmas joy and christmaspiece. I look forward to stitch this.
And this is more work to do in front of the tv. Put buttons on and finishe all these pincushions. I have got several questions on the pattern on these. You can find it on this blog both in swedish and english. They are so fun to make.
Saying for today:
My soul is fed with needle and thread,
my body with chocolate!
