Almost a week since I lasted blogged. The days just goes too fast. I have not done so much sewing since my weekend at the cabin. I forgot my camera so I have no photos to show from my weekend. But we had a great time. A lot of sewing, good food, a long walk in the winterforest and laughter. It's so good to be together with friends. I managed to sew the whole top of my new table runner. My friend Bjørg have designed it and we should try out her new pattern.
Now I'm sewing the binding on. And then I'm going to applique a lot of flowers on it. Still a lot of work to do on it.
Look................more projects LOL I now have all blocs of "Truly Scrumptious " from Cinderberry Stitches. I look forward to start stitching on them. But have decided to wait a little bit. Want to finish some more WISPs before starting on it....................I think :)
I got two jello rolls of Moda fabrics to use with the pattern so I'll be using from my stash to it :)
It seems that many girls now are seriously working on their WISPs. I've got a lot of mails telling me they are happy with me pushing them to work on their WISPs.

Christine is really working on her WISPs. She has finished her Spotlight quilt and a pincushion.
Eileen has finished a thimbleberry club quilt.
Patti has finished her third WISP
Elin has finished a lot of wisps now, and she still have more :)
Sølvi has finished a fun elephant table runner.
Laila has finished her Jacob quilt.
Sigrun has finished two lovely gardenladies wallhangings
Hanne has finished a beautiful stitchery pillow.
Patti has finished another wisp before I manage to publish this post.
Tamara has finished her first wisp
Carole has finished a very cute snowman.


Saying for today:

I love checking your blog and I often follow your favorite links to find many other blogs. Tonight I checked out all the WISPs that you had listed. Wow! Lots of work is getting done! I don't think I'll be finishing anything this month, but I am starting a baby quilt for new grandbaby.

Ok, those colors in the table runner are sooo sothing and calm. Beautiful. And those sticheries are such fun! (how you can resist them I don't know!)

Very nice post May Britt. Lots of lovely links to follow up, too.
Thankyou.

Lovely table runner! Will you do the applique or keep it as it is ?

The new BOM looks good and the fabrics you have are perfect :-)

You are really diciplined if you manage to wait on starting the "Truly Scrumptious " until you have finished some of your other projects :o)

Take care and have a wonderful and creative day! Hugs...

Let's make it SHORT (Yes, I can !) : I love everything ! :>)

The table runner is sooo refreshing : already announcing spring ! So you have quilted andput the binding BEFORE appliqueing ?

The jelly rolls... aaah, the jelly rolls.... I'm fainting !

And those stitcheries.... don't touch them ! I'll start them for you, when I come, just trying to help you, dear :>)

Love you table runner, May and those jelly rolls are to die for.

I finished my fourth project for the month a simple table runner I have up on my blog now. Have another little wall hanging that I found and am finishing.

Sweet P said...

The colors are amazing in your table runner. Many people are enjoying your WISP challenge and doing a great job.

liz allen said...

Hi May, I,m new to blogging and I want to say thank-you not only for your great blog but also for all the great links to other lovely bloggers. You are amazing and inspiring at how much you achieve. I would have loved to join in with the WISP month but I,m moving house and have to pack :( But when I have moved I will be definitely adopting a weekend or so a month to work on my WISPs which I have managed to come across quite a few!!! while packing all my craft stuff. You have motivated me for this. I too have signed up for the 'Truly Scrumptious' stitchery but I will be doing mine as a block a month. It is just gorgeous and I can't wait to start it.
Bye for now and thanks again for a wonderful blog to read.
Kind regards from Liz

Christine said...

I am very envious of your Truly Scrumptious patterns and jelly rolls. This quilt is going to be gorgeous.

teodo said...

Wonderful post!
thanks for the links and for the sticheries.........
now I find on internet if I can buy.
ciao ciao

Shelina said...

That is a beautiful table runner - I really like the soft colors on it. Look forward to seeing it with appliqué.

You have motivated so many people to work on their works in progress. A lot of satisfied people as a result - both the people working on finishing things up, the people who live with them, and the people who get to see all those beautiful projects finished up.
