Snowstorm and progress on Joy of Life BOM

It has been snowing all weekend. And this is how my veranda is looking like this morning. And it it still snowing. So now I will go out and shuffle some snow. And then I will spend the rest of the day in my sewingroom. Perfect sewing weather.

Since my last post I have worked on my BOM Joy of Life.
I love doing needleturn applique and my favorite tools here is the Roxanne glue, my applique pins and my scissor. Sitting in my favorite sewing chair in front of the tv, doing applique while watching tv, I get a lot done.
Block number three was finished quickly.

And this is the four finished blocks so far.


I have prepared block number four. A lot more work on this block. And I have made up a lot of bias so I have something to play with on the next blocks.

Had a coffe-sewing meeting with Bjørg (no blogger) yesterday and we got a lot done on our blocks. And during the evening yesterday I almost finished this block. Just have some leafs to applique.
Having big plans in my sewingroom today after I have shuffled some snow. Hoping to make at least one finishe for february OPAM.
Saying for today:

Snowflakes are kisses
sent from heaven
.

Comment from me on the saying.............
If this is true, stop kissing me.

Hei tror nesten dere har mer snø enn oss her nord:-) Teppet ditt blir flott, nydelige farger. Får rene sommer følelsen å se sommer fugler og blomster.
Ha en fin og kreativ morsdag:-))

Gesine said...

Wow, you really have a lot of snow. The blocks are just beautiful! But I have one question: What ist Roxanne glue, and how do you use it for needleturn appliqe?
Greetings, Gesine

Lorraine said...

The blocks are gorgeous! I would also like to know how you use the glue for your applique. I am a beginner when it comes to applique.

Bjørg said...

Vi har fått mye snø i helga, og det har vært kaos på veiene. Glad det ikke var nå vi skulle treffes. Så nydelig de blokkene er som du syr nå.Det ser vanskelig! God søndag og god søm og snømåking.

Very pretty applique blocks!

Teresa said...

OH my....that much snow would make me nervous. I guess you all are used to it though. I do love to stay inside and sew on snowy days though, and for South Carolina that includes snow of 1 or 2 inches, 6 inches is a gracious plenty.

Your Love of Life quilt is looking so beautiful. I lost my brother this past week to anaplastic cancer and think this might be just the quilt to make as a tribute to him.

Yvette said...

I just love that quilt you are making. It is on my list to buy. Your blocks are wonderful!

Gudveig HN said...

Nydelige blokker!
Ja, det har lavet ned med snø her i Oslo også...

Anne Ida said...

Yes, can you believe this weather??? And it started snowing again this afternoon! Sigh!!

Your blocks look fabulous! I really love this quilt by Rosalie Quinlan, but I don't think I'll ever make it... Look forward to "inspecting" yours, though :o)

Have a great Sunday!
Hugs and stitches

May Kristin said...

Finally we've got some snow here to, but far far away from as much as you've got! But it is nice the see the nature in an other colour!
Your Joy of life is coming together so nice! It is a beautiful quilt!

Jeanne said...

I'd rather picture you and Hanne stitching in the sunshine than see all of that snow. VBG Your Joy of Life blocks are so gorgeous!

Carole said...

I love the snow! Ours is melting, a warm day! Perhaps we will have more soon. I just adore the way your BOM Joy of Life is turning out! That is going to be one sweet looking quilt! Keep well!

Judy S. said...

Beautiful blocks! I have a question about the Glue...I have some also and was wondering if you have to wash it out after you use it?

Karen said...
