Birthday weekend

It has been a really nice weekend.  Having my birthday today so I have had some visitors this weekend.  My DD came home and look what she gave me.

009
A beautiful jewellery box that has a photo on me on it. I love it.  This photo was taken by my uncle.  I have been told that I refused to be taken photo of, but I agreed to hold the kitten so my uncle could take photo of it. 

005
My quiltfriends that was over for coffe yesterday had bought me the book to the right.  It has several small projects I want to make.  The book to the left is one I treated myself today. 

007
Just had to buy this one because of this quilt (among several other beautiful quilts in this book).  If you remember the wonderful log cabin quilt in this post, I could not resist having this book.  And now I look forward to try the Marti Michel log cabin ruler.

001
The last day i september and I discovered that I had no finish for OPAM semptember.  Having one or more finishes all the other months I could not have zero this month.  But as every other quilter I just had to dive into my WISPS (UFO’s) and grab one that was fast to finish.

002
Done in just 20 minutes, and now I have a finish for september OPAM, and a new luggage tag for my suitcase. Not my best finish, because I struggled with the plasctic on the back.  But it is a finish.

003
Six more baskets is appliqued (status now: 18 done/110 more to sew)

004
And my Scandinavian Christmas blocks is sewed together.  Now I have to start applique the heart blocks for the outher border.  Still a lot to do and just 2 1/2 month until Christmas.  And I get distractet all the time with new projects.

Saying for today:

Gratulerer så mye med dagen. Hyggelig at du liker log cabin teppet, det er jeg som har sydd det. Utrolig morro å sy, og lett ved hjelp av linjalen fra Marti Michell. Lykke til med alle nye prosjektene, kos deg masse.
