Workshop with Hanne

This weekend I have had Hanne on visit. She had a workshop in our local quiltshop and here you can see the busy women in action. So concentrated all of them LOL
Hanne is teaching us to make the toilet bag I showed you in a earlier post. And she is a great teacher.

A lot of rotarycutting and pins



And a lot of sewing.

Me deeply concentrated in sewing the zipper on to the toilet bag.

And below is some of the toiletbags that was made this weekend


They are all so beautiful.

The workshop was Yeasterday and today Hanne and I have just relaxed sewing and chatting. That means she was relaxing with a new block for her Angel Storybook quilt, and I had to finish my two toiletbags that was started yesterday at the workshop.

Frida the Quiltinspector watching what I am doing. She is testing if the toiletbag is soft enough to sleep on.
And this is my two finished toiletbags. The front...........
and the back. Think both is going to be christmasgifts for someone. They were fun to sew and I guess there will be made more of these before christmas.
And look.....Hanne gave me this birthdaygift. A baking cloth (that I have to sew myself) to cover the dough when it is waiting to go in the oven. Thank you Hanne, I love it.

Saying for today:
A friend is someone who thinks you're a good egg...
Even though you're slightly cracked

Hey May Britt! Looks like you had a great fun and productive weekend. I love the little toiletry bags - is there somewhere I can get the pattern? I especially like the patchwork on the back and the colours you've used are just like I would pick - great minds think alike! Bear Hugs! KRIS (Tag Along Teddies)

Jeg er ofte innom bloggen din og ser på alt det flotte du lager og lar meg inspirere. Jeg er like spent for hver gang jeg "besøker" bloggen din om du har laget noe nytt! Nice work!
