Creative weekend

Elvis has left the building… I mean Hanne has just left the building.  We have had a creative sewing weekend.


With a good helping claw checking out the progress on our projects.


He is really a great supervisor, and when there is no space on the sewingtable (wonder why, perhaps too much fabrics and rotarycutting), why not go up the shelf to keep an eye on what we was doing.


Hanne is testing on me a new workshop she is going to teach.  And look, I am working with blue fabrics. 


Or perhaps they are not really blue, but more greyblue, and those colours I can accept working with and love. 


Starting a new project makes a lot of mess in my sewing room.  Looking for the perfect backgrounds is not easy, so one by one the light fabrics where pulled out of the drawer.


And finally it got the look I wanted.


Hanne was also working on new models for her workshop.  I recomend everyone in Norway to book her for this workshop,  it was SO fun, and she has a lot of great ideas and tricks to show.


Do you remeber the secret project I started to work on.  I did sew a few blocks, but when looking at them on the design wall, I did not like them at all.  I got angry looking at them.


But thanks to Hannes advice I changed some a lot of fabrics and got a whole new look . Unpicked some pieces of the appliqued blocks and kept some of the fabrics on them. And it works.


Now making pizza and then som relaxing applique while watching tv.  This has been a great weekend filled with vitamin Q.

Saying for today.

There comes a point in your life when you realize who really matters, who never did,
and who always will.

Ha Ha, you got angry looking at your blocks. I do that too. The grey-blue color is lovely. Vitamin Q is the best vitamin in the world.

It sounds like you had a lovely weekend together May Britt, and your furry supervisor is being very vigilant I see. The Norwegian cats must take their jobs very seriously!
