Antique Sampler–progress

The other day I got an SMS from Bjørg asking me how far I had come on my Antique Sampler homework

Eh……Antique Sampler…….do I have this project……..eh………perhaps hidden in a box……………..and forgotten……………..

003

Several months since I have been working on this project.  The box have been stored in my sewingroom shelf, not out of sight, so that’s no excuse for not working on this project.

004

Now I will have focus on this project for a while because there is still a lot to sew.

005

Spending time in my sewingroom today tracing the circles left to applique.

006

To make the circles perfect I have made a plastic template as big as the block and cut out the circle.  Then it is easy to lay it up on the fabric and just trace the circle.

009

It is fun working on the Antique Sampler again.

008

And this is what I have finished so far.  24 cirkles.

002

And the six main blocks.  I am not doing the big quilt which has 9 main blocks, just a smaller version of it. 

Now, back in the sewing room watching Downtown Abbey on my computer while prepping more blocks.

Saying for today:

My soul is fed with needle and thread

Eg er imponert over dokke som set i gang med desse vakre quiltane, med så mykje arbeid på!

Dei er og blir nydelege, men for eit tolmodsarbeid!

Ha gode handarbeidsstunder!

Yes! I caught a few episodes of this for the first time during the holidays. I loved it, and tv doesn't usually hook me in. I will have to look for this on line to see if I can watch the whole thing.

As always I enjoy your blog - I really look forward to your posts. And seeing that I am a faithful follower, I'm wondering if you still have Ruskin as I haven't seen him in a while. Regards, Gail in Canada
