Late thursday evening (almost night) I packed the car and drove up to my friend Irene’s cabin. Where Irene and Britt was waiting for me. Bjørg came early friday morning. A weekend with sewing together with good friends.
when you forgot to bring the necessary things (like pattern for one projects and the zippers to another project) to your machinesewing projects, my sewingmachine stayed out in the hall all weekend.
I am so happy I brought at lot of other projects to do by hand. Had a lot of prepping to do on the remaining blocks for my Svennebrev x 2. A lot of pieces on the applique blocks…..
and a total mess in my corner LOL
One block finished hand piecing this weekend, and all the other ready to be pieced.
While me prepping and handsewing at the table, the other where doing a lot of machine sewing.
Think all of us had been digging deep in the ufos this time
or working on a BOM
No desing walls in the cabin, but the bed worked well to put these blocks on the right place.
As usual Bjørg did a lot of sewing. Like this beautiful flower quilt,
a makeup purse and 12 placemats, all made from leftovers from a big quilt.
Britt finished this cute strawberry table runner,
and made the top for this bed cover (two similar quilts)
and also a third one. She did a lot of sewing this weekend,
and a lot of quilting left to do.
I finished four blocks for my antique sampler, and prepped two more. It was so fun doing needle turn applique on these blocks.
And I who have big problems working with blue colours, love these colours!!!
And I cut all the fabric for the small dark blocks and the outher border. Have to cut the light fabric now. Homework for next antique sampler meeting we (Bjørg and I) have to finish the six big applique blocks and start making 4 x 3 small blocks.
Another great vitamin Q weekend with good friends. We have already set the date for our next cabin trip
Saying for today:
Friends are those rare people
who ask how you are
and then wait for the answer.
