Tour de Fibre - attacing UFO's

For some days my friend Irene and I have been at her cabin. Sewingmachines, red wine and a lot of projects. Sewing from early morning until late night. And I have done a lot these days :)

Finished quilting my Autumn Houses.
All that is left is to sew down the binding.

Right before leaving the house on monday I found an old ufo in my sewinroom. Started on this table cloth several years ago at a class. It took me one hour to sew on the last blocks.

And then out into the "tent" on the porch to baste the quilt.

And with at glass of red wine (or two :) the quilting was done.
And the binding sewed on.
I actually finished sewing down the binding today :)


I love my Autumn Houses and my Summer table cloth.

During these days I finished this scissor holder too :)
It took me 30 minutes to finish this UFO.

I have alse sewed a lot of blocks for my 2 x Svennebrev. Now I have just the applique blocks left to sew. And I will prepare them in the days to come.

This has been som great days, and I know we'll repeat it very soon :)

Saying for today:
Sewing mends the soul.
