So here is a little summary:The last days I have been cursing the closing of bloglines. I had so many blogs on my list there. Now I have decided to put them in my sidebar, but also to be very selectiv. Still not finished with my list, but I think this is actually a good way to follow blogs. I have already started to comment more and that is a goal for me. To comment more on the blogs I follow. My bloglist in the sidebar will be long, because there is so many wonderful quiltblogs.
And as you see I have given my blog a new look. But the header did not come out so good. Guess I have to make a new one, but I really like the old one. Have to figure out how to make it better, or just make a new one.
Frida cat and I have had some good time in the sewingroom. I started to machinequilt my autumn houses. I have to take it veeeeeeeeeeeery slow because of my bad shoulder. And as you see the quilt inspector looks after me.
I have still a lot of quilting to do on this quilt, but I am so happy with the look of it.
Last weekend I visited my friend Laila and helped to move her sewingroom into a new room. It was so fun to look through her stash, books and patters. And I think Laila got a little surprised to find several forgotten projects.
I have been taking a lot of walks in the lovely autumn sun. My physiotherapist and doctors order. Long walks and swing with my arms. And it really helps, both on my shoulders and my mood.
At the last meeting in my quiltguild I gave our members a challenge. We have all been talking about making a new sampler for a long time. So I have made up some blocks for a minisampler. Here is my first two blocks.
and today I have cut the pieces for the next two blocks. It is so fun to sew on the line again.
While being away for several days on a workshop last week (with no internet in my room) I had traced the first block of "Angel among us" to stitch on in the evenings. I stitched almost the whole angel, then I decided these dmc colours was not my chose (even though I had selected the original colours). So what do do..........I unpicked all my stitching. And to unpick that much stitchery is not easy. I guess Hanne and Bente (no blogger) is laughing of me now. We have agreed to start stitching "Angel among us" together and I cheated and started early before the two others. So now I am back on scratch with this project LOL
But I have enjoyed stitching these two small stitcheries. Do not know what to make of them yet.
Autumn is a second spring
when every leaf is a flower
