Enjoying some time in the sewingroom

 

This weekend I have spendt a lot of time in the sewingroom, and it feels so good.  Sewing, preparing new projects, watching movies on my computer and just having fun.

Remember this quilt that I started several weeks ago.  Now I have finished the top and hope I can baste it soon.  Just have to find a backing for it. It was a kit, but I did not like the brown sashing between the blocks.  I choose light sashing and I love how the quilt turned out.

Last thursday was quilt meeting in my quilt group.  Our local quiltshop came for a visit with some boxes of fabrics and patterns.  I bought these fabrics…

…to make this pillow.  Today I traced the applique pieces and got them on the background.  Have to find some thread to do buttonhole applique.  Want this pillow to be finished until Christmas.

Working two days in my sewingroom makes it so messy.  Projects, fabrics and patterns all over the room.  Finally there was no room for ironing LOL

I have also made progress on the tablerunner from last post and I have almost done all my homework for my Antique Sampler that I am sewing together with Bjørg. 

This has been a great sewing weekend.

OPAM……this month have just gone too fast.  Only one tiny little finish, a pincushion made from a soda cork.  But I promise november will have more finishes.  Have to start making Christmas gifts now.

Wish I could do like this, but my back is to stiff and in pain right now.  Rusken really knows how to relax.

Saying for today:

Always remember you're unique,
just like everyone else.

Wow you have been busy...I went to a stitchery weekend & did not do very much stitching I was too busy chatting & buying patterns & material lol...but I had a great time ....Ruskens antics always make me smile

Karen said...

The light sashing works very well in your quilt. It allows the blocks to be seen easier.

Elin said...

Nydeleg arbeid! Så fint det blei når du fekk lysne det litt. Mine repro-arbeid har ein tendens til å bli for mørke.
Og den pusen er no berre fantastisk.
