Sewing room time again

Finally some quality time in my sewingroom. 


And Rusken really enjoyed having me there with him again. Yesterday I prepped the center block for the basket quilt. 


This has become one of my favorite quilting tools.  The 1/4 inch bias maker.  So easy to make bias for stems now.


And I enjoyed starting applique on the center block.  Still have 14 basket blocks to finish.


Discovering there was only two days left of 2012 and I had no OPAM finish this month (neither did I have one in november….shame on me).  After looking through my WISPS  (have a lot of them) I choose this Christmas wreath.  It was almost finished last I worked on it.  Just had to add the backside of the pillow and sew on the binding.


And in a couple of hours I had a december OPAM finish and a new Christmas cushion.  Last Christmas I had no Christmas cuhsions, but now I have two.  And this makes me decide to make some new cushions in 2013.  I really need to change out some of my old cushions.


Will this one be the last finish in 2012???  Still have some time to sew in 2012.  And it will perhaps be the last time I am sewing on my Janome 6600.  I am waiting for my new Janome Horizon coming late january.  Then I am going to clean up the old machine, put it in a box and it is going to a lady in Oslo who have bought it to use it at her cabin.

Saying for today:

Iam looking forward to seeing your basket masterpiece, and I love seeing photos of Rusken, your assistant in the sewing room. The wreath looks great finished as a pillow.

Puta di ble kjempefin! Jeg har så mange ufo'er liggende og har bestemt meg for å gjøre ferdig en imellom hvert nytt prosjekt i 2013. Det må bli noen ferdige prosjekter forhåpentligvis. Jeg ble helt forelska i dresden quilten din! Den er jo bare så nydelig! En sånn en skal jeg sy iløpet av 2013! Takk for inspirasjon!
Ønsker deg et godt nyttår, og måtte det nye året by på mange koselige stunder med nål og tråd :-)
