Tour de Fibre 2011

Hanne and I have started Tour de Fibre 2011, so please join us if you want :) Congratulations to Tor Hushovde who won the yellow yersey today.

I guess you all know that I always have some stitchery to grab on-the go whenever I need one. And this weekend have prooved how smart that is. I have stayed almost the whole weekend at the hospital with my mother. She has pneumonia and has been very sick. And also having dementia, I have stayed there with her to keep her calm.

I have been stitching on AnnAKa's new christmas BOM. And these days I finished block #1 and almost block #2. Feels good to sit besides my mom's bed and stitch. She is feeling much better now and will perhaps go home to the nursing home where she lives in a few days.

But I have block #3 ready to go :)

Small steps on my BOM from Lappemakeriet. Got a new package some days ago and I have traced all parts for the blocks. I try to have all blocks done before the next package arrives, and so far I have been clever :) So this evening sewing on these blocks and just relax with a glass of red wine.

Rusken and Frida enjoys summer evenings out on the porch. I wonder when I can enjoy some time out there. Still waiting for summer to come.

Saying for today:

To us, family means putting your arms
around each other and being there

So glad to hear your Mom is doing better. I love your new BOM stitchery. Is this from a book or did you purchase it as a BOM. I looked online but was unable to locate it.

God bedring til mora di. Og ja , det er bestandig lurt å ha ett håndarbeid i veska.
