So far the winter has been strange. We have had warm degrees every day and a lot of rain. Almost all the snow was melted, you had to go up in the mountains to go skiing. But I was happy with that. This weekend the weather turned and it has come a lot of snow and now it is very cold minus 20 C.
So what do a quilter do. Stay inside of course. Sewing down the binding on my Red Home Quilt. I love my wonder clips. Makes sewing down the binding so easy.
It is cold outside, and it was so good to just cuddle up under the quilt while sewing down the binding. Earlier I did think that sewing down bindings was soooooo boring. But now it was just fun. I watched a lot of series and old movies on the tv. Rusken was also very interested in what was going on on the tv.
And the quilt is cat approved. Several times already.
UFO # 3 is finished.
Now I am on a roll with finishing UFO’s. I have decided that january is my UFO month. The challenge was to finish five before starting something new. But it feels so good to have a finish so I will keep on working on my UFO’s for the whole month. So then when february comes I can start something new.
UFO #4 finished today. A new cushion. But I really think I have to change colours now. Almost everything I have made lately is RED.
And RED is the colour on UFO #5 too. This pattern was a Christmas gift from my friend Bjørg in 2012. I did start to sew it, but put it away in a box.
Today I sewed it together. Still thinking about whether I should applique the daisies or not. Perhaps not, and rather quilt some borders in the middle row. Have to sleep on it.
I manage to focus on my Aunt Sarah’s quilt the whole week. Been a hectic week at work and then it was good just to come home, sit down and relax and sew on my hexagons. And this is how far I have come by today. Think I will have focus on this as my hand stitching project the coming week too.
Saying for today:
