Spending time in my sewingroom

Some weeks ago I became the 1000th follower and I have been waiting for my prize.

And yesterday an envelope came in my mailbox with these four spools of aurifil thread. Thank you Madame Samm.
Hanne, Bente (no blogger) and I have agreed to have a BOM-sewing between us three. We decided to make Angel among us (because all three of us had the pattern). And now I have finished the first block (the october block). I am using fabircs from my own stash and have decided to stitch only in variated Cosmo blue thread.

I have also finished the stitchery for block number two (november block). Hope I get some time doing the rest of it this month, but now I have to get focused on making Christmas gifts.

The last days I have prepared a samle for my needleturn workshop on saturday. I decided to give the ladies some good shapes to practise needleturn, and if they want they can turn it into a pillow like my sample. I still have some finish to do, and then put all the papers together for a nice compendium. Will show you the pillow later when I have it finished.

I really think I should have some priority on cleaning up in my sewing room shelfs. Promise it will be done in good time before Christmas. First some priority on Christmas gifts :)

Saying for today:

Please don't feed the dust bunnies.

Oh, my. No, don't feed the dust bunnies. They do quite well all on their own!

Nice goodies! I love Aurifil thread...haven't used anything else since I "found" it some time ago....

Lovely angel blocks. Your needleturn block looks lovely too.
I'm glad my sewing room isn't the only one looking like a bomb exploded. My husband asked is this a work in progress I said no a BIG MESS in progress. Hope to clean it up soon.
Have fun with your class.

First off you will LOVE the aurafil thread. That is all I use now. But what I really LOVE is your teaching basket. I had no idea that is how it would turn out. Now I am upset I can't take that class - it is adorable!

Hey May Britt! Your angel blocks are looking gorgeous - can't wait to see your finished quilt! :0) And your sewing room looks a bit like mine ... I think my cupboards spat all of the contents onto my sewing room floor ... and the furniture ... and the ironing board ... and ...! Tee! Hee! Hee! I call it 'creative chaos' and promise myself I'll clean it up ... one day - Happy stitching! Bear Hugs! KRIS

Godt å se flere "hobbyrom" - tror vi omskriver: hvis en rotete pult betyr et rotete hode, hva betyr da en tom pult - ditt rom tyder på AKTIVITET :-)))
Snax!
