Sewing is healing

First of all I want to thank all of you for your lovely comments regarding to my previous post.   I have not replyed on those comments, but want you to know that they meant a lot to me. 

LINEA ROSAS ROSA

Today I have spent several hours in the sewingroom.  Wonderding what to sew I chatted with Hanne on msn.  She remembered me on a kit both she and I bought in Tromsø at the annual quiltmeeting in march.

Miss Mary’s pinwheels quilt.  Of course it had to be this one today.  Starting a new fresh project.  Hanne and I have chatted on msn while cutting and sewing.

Another guy happy that mother is back in the sewingroom.  Testing the fabrics for this quilt and I think he likes them.  Why do cats always fancy sitting on fabrics??

Cutting and sewing.  A lot of work on this quilt.  Testing one pinwheel and I am glad I always cut the pieces a little bit bigger than in the pattern.  Sewing pinwheels before, and know the seam allowance can make the finished size a lot smaller.  My way I get the correct size.

Saying for today:

En god dag på syrommet hjelper på det meste. Har jobbet i hagen i dag og plukket en bukett høstblomster. Dersom jeg hadde bodd nærmere så hadde buketten vært din. Se foto på bloggen min. Klem

Eg er så glad for at du er tilbake på syrommet, og at du lagar slik flott kvilt i repro-stoff! Dette kjem til å bli aldeles skjønt! Ha ei god helg!

Det blir en speciell kvilt som också kommer att vara förevigt förknippad med din mamma.Så vacker den blir.Också svag för reproblock och reprotyger.

I know exactly how you're feeling because I had those same empty feelings after I lost my Mom. I found sewing and hand stitching to be very comforting.

My thoughts are with you and know that your Mom is watching over you.

Godt å se du klarer å koble av litt på syrommet. Det er nok verdens beste medisin den hobbyen vi har. Godt å få tankene over på noe annet innimellom.
Teppet ditt ser veldig spennende ut, og jeg gleder meg til å se mer.
Varme klemmer sendes din vei med luftpost :o)

Trist å lese om moren din. Ser ut som dere hadde mange koselige stunder på syrommet med hver sin quilt i hånden. Ta vare på alle de gode stundene dere hadde sammen fremfor det triste. Tenker på deg og din familie.
