My summervacation–goals

Do you remember this post where I planned my summer vacation. These three weeks have gone so fast. Tomorrow I start working again.

Let’s check if I manage to do what I planned

1. Organizing my sewing room.......again

001

Oh yes, I have done a lot of organizing in my sewingroom. Almost all the shelfs are being organized. I have throwed away a lot!! And it actually feels good.

Today everything in my WISP drawer was pulled out on the floor.

002

And now this drawer looks more inviting. Found some projects I had totally forgotten. Projects that can be finished in no time I think.

2. Quilt
3. Quilt some more
4. And hopefully have some finishes

I have 8 finishes this month. Some small and some big. I am doing a happy dancing now. Never did I believe that I would manage to have so many finishes. So that just tells I have done a lot of quilting, and a lot of bindings too. With all the rain we have had this summer, a good place to be have been in my sewingroom.

5. So I can start some new projects

005

In that blue paperbag is all fabrics for project Antique Sampler. I know Sue Daley is coming back to Norway next year so it had been fun to show her this quilt. This time I will join one of her classes. I will be sewing this quilt together with my friend Bjørg and we will start in in a week or two.

6. Relax
7. And quilt some more
8. A glass of red wine


004

We have had some sunny warm summerdays, like this weekend, and I have enjoyed some time out on the porch (finally) with my sewing, a good book and a nice glass of red wine.


9. And then there perhaps is time to organize my sewing room ..........again

I guess in a week or two I have messed up my swingroom and it is time to start organizing it again. But I guess I am not the only one having it this way LOL

10. Just have fun in my summer vacation

These three weeks have gone too fast. I have had a lot of fun, even though I have had to go to work some days (will get those vacation days later to spend). Been to the cabin with a dear friend (with our sewingmachines of course), had dear friends over for a visit, visited a quiltshop (and shopped of course), relaxed with my sewing and reading, watched good movies and read some great books.

Saying for today:

Much may be done in those little shreds and patches of time
which every day produces,
and which most men throw away.

Sounds you had a wonderful vacation! And you have done a lot of the things you planned to do. I am looking forward to seeing pictures of the Antique Sampler. The fabrics I can see are beautiful

Sjovt nok kender jeg godt det der med, at når man lige er allerbedst i gang med noget nyt lækkert, så skal der ryddes op igen!!! Jeg tror, at det, at der ofte skal ryddes op, er et tegn på aktivitet og ikke på at man er et rodehoved! Nyd sommeren mens den er her!

Sounds like you have made good use of your time. We can't do everything, but lists help to at least do some things!

You have been so dedicated - well done :-)

Imponerende arbeid, nå er jeg blitt veldig inspirert til å få unna ufoer og rydde opp i stoffer og garn.

Isn't summer flying by too fast. I just haven't found time to do all the things I need to do. Relaxing, quilting and a glass of red wine sounds good to me!

Høres ut som en helt herlig måte å feriere på spør du meg , så tror jeg skalkutte ut bilkjøring og shopping for ei stund jeg også, og bare kose meg med sysakene.
