An old WISP

Loooooooooooong time ago (hundred years) I bought this Jinny Beyer kit called Trip Around The World. My friend Irene (no blog) wanted us to start sewing on this project again and I agreed. But I thought I had done more on it. Just lesson one and two was done.


So we started all over again with this WISP. Irene has done a lot more on her kit so she started to draw the pieces for lesson six. And I was glad I found all pieces for lesson three precut in my box.

But I hate sewing on paper.

Irene cutting more fabric for her pieces.
And me sewing on my pieces.
Did I mention I hate sewing on paper.

But I manage to finish 8 of 16 rows this evening.
Irene and I had a creative evening in my sewingroom.
And now we both have homework to do until next time we meets.


Saying for today:
Sisters share
the memories of yesterday,
the joys of today,
and the hopes of tomorrow.

Oooh, I can't wait to see this quilt May Britt! I thought a trip around the world was made out of squares only -- this looks very cool!

Jody said...

What a lot of work!! Beautiful!

All of Jenny Beyer's things are so beautiful, so I know you are going to end up with a real treasure.

Hi May Britt,
your sewing on paper looks good, even though you don´t like to do it at all.

Kjekt å ha selskap i syinga når du holder på mednoe du egentlig ikke liker. Men det ser ut som resultatet kan bli flott

Miriam said...

Beautiful work! I can't wait to see this finished. I love Jinny Beyer's designs. It is great you can sew together with a friend.

WISP: "Work in Sewing Progress"???
Fabulous work, love the colors, maybe by the time your done you'll love paper.

Dette blir eit flott teppe. Eg veit det, for eg har sydd det. Eg hadde mitt hittil stoltaste øyeblikk som lappesyerske då eg sette siste stinget i denne vakre quilten. Det var nemleg det første sengeteppet eg sydde. Skal vere einig i at papirsying kanskje ikkje er så kjekt når det skal syast så mange like, med det blir jo nøyaktig då...

Trip around the world is a beautiful quilt, but it must be a lot of work.

Anne Ida said...

Å, dere damer har mot! Det teppet er superlekkert, men all den papirsømmen... puh!! Lykke til! Gleder meg til å se videre fremskritt :o)

Lappedamen said...

Så hyggelig det hørtes ut med syselskap på syrommet. Selv om du hater papirsøm, så får du tenke på hvor fint resultatet blir.

Så koselig dere har hatt det. Flott og se Irene i sving også - var du sammen med henne på utstillingen i Elverum sist helg? Kom til å tenke på det etter at vi hadde reist - ikke alltid lett å kjenne igjen fra bare bilder.... God helg

Sigrun said...

Åhhh så flink du er, jeg har også den kofferten liggende, 50 års gave til meg selv... dvs. den har ligget i 4 år.... Kanskje jeg burde finne den fram igjen jeg også for å se hva jeg har gjort:-).
