More finishes

In my previous post I showed five UFO’s that I was going to work on this weekend. And I finished four of them.


UFO finish #7 and “8.  Two placemats designed by my friend Bjørg.


UFO finish #9.  A new table runner, also a design from Bjørg.


UFO finish #10.  The table runner I started on in a Sue Daley class one year ago.

Yoohoooo…….I’m doing a happy dance now.  10 finishes so far in january. And it has been no stress, just having fun working on these old projects.


In the bookshelf in my sewingroom I have a lot of sewingbags.  Looked through them today and guess what, in one of them there was two UFO’s.


It was two Hatched and Patched stitcheries.  One is almost finished. The other one ready to be stitched.  Feel in the mood for some stitchery now so this will be on of my focus this week.


I found this table runner (also a design from Bjørg) in my drawer.  I do not like sewing buttonhole stitches !!  But I manage to finish the applique while having a friend visiting for coffee . Done in just a few hours. Hope I have enough batting to baste it, but I think I am starting to get short on batting now.

Saying for today:

That's a big weekend May Britt - everything you make is beautiful. I love the sewing bag in which you found your Anni Downs stitcheries.

Ondrea said...

Wow! You did it! Super sewer. Love the place mats and runners. The Annie Downs stitcheries are always a delight. As for applique, I usually do the blanket stitch but am about to start a Gail Pan quilt using the needle turn method. Wish me luck.
