Back in sewing

Finally I got some time sewing again.  Been a lot of long days at work, and also been busy at home.  But today I got some time to enter my sewingroom.  Feels good.


I started with basting this little quilt (desing Leanne Beasley).  Not sure how I will quilt it, but thing I will handquilt it.  Will not machinequilt over the stitchery, rather handquilt some lines in it.


Some time ago I got a kit for a small purse from Hanne.  And today I have sewed it together.  I usually hate zippers, but it was easy sewing the zippers into these purses.  And I love having yard by yard zippers to use.


When I started sewing the first little purse together, I remembered Laila making one by using selvages.  So I had to make one to.  I love these small purses.


Doing some progress on my Antique sampler the last weeks.  Handsewing is great when I am tired and just want to relax in my chair watching tv. 


Wish I could sleep like this guy.  Rusken is enjoying his new scratchboard, but first when he got a quilt on top of it to sleep on.


Saying for today:

that complicate life.

Lovely little purse May, I usually hate zips as well. I have a pattern like that from The Birdhouse, similar.

Rusken looks very content on his quilt. lol. All of your projects are beautiful. Thank you for sharing. I guess I'll stop throwing all of my selvages away now.

Rusken sure looks comfortable on 'his' quilt. :-) Your little purses are so cute. I have the alphabet stitched for mine, but haven't put it together yet. The winter redwork is beautiful, too.

Oh I love your little purses you made from Hanne! I drooled over them on her blog too! And the little winter stitchery is WONDERFUL! I think need to track that pattern down! I love it!
