Just sewing today


Today focusing on Scandinavian Christmas quilt (SC).  Discovering that I had stitched 7 snowflake  blocks on too small background I really have to learn to read the instructions first I prepped 7 new blocks, the rigth size this time, and I also prepped the 23 heart blocks. So whenever I like to sit down and do some needleturn I have them ready. I do not think I will manage to have this quilt finished for this Christmas.  Christmas is approaching too fast and I have several other projects I want need to have focus on. So instead of feeling bad for not finishing SC this year I will enjoy finishing other projects, and having fun working on SC also in the next year coming.


Hanne has challenged me, and I took the challenge, to finish at least two UFO’s or as I like to call them WISP’s, each month.  And today I found one really old WISP that just needed some more handquilting.  Long time since I did som handquilting so it was fun doing it now.  A couple of hours handquilting ……


and sewing on and down the binding, this little Christmas quilt was finished.  The words on the quilt says:  Light a candle, sit down, enjoy the Christmas joy and peace.


Still working on my baskets.  24 finished so far. 104 more to make.  So far I have manage my goal to sew 10 each week.  As Sue told me…….these baskets are addictive.

Saying for today:

Christmas will definitely come again next year, so better to enjoy your SC than rush it. Your baskets look beautiful.

So many beautiful baskets! Love that Christmas project all hand quilted. I think you have a good attitude about the SC quilt. Enjoy the journey without any pressure. Thanks for showing us all your lovely things.

7 snowflake blocks is almost as bad as my entire snowman block I finished on a too small piece of fabric! Your little Christmas tree is sweet, and the tiny baskets look so very cute.

What a lovely saying on your hand quilted wallhanging. Well done for keeping up with your basket making.

So sorry to hear of your mishap with the snow flakes. Good luck in finishing it when you have time. For such a small quilt there is an awful lot of work in it.
