Last day of the Olympic games 2014. Just waiting for the closing cermony to start. It has been ups and downs in Sochi, but I am so proud of the Norwegians. 11 gold medals, 5 silver medals and 10 bronce medals, total of 26 medals is amazing.
A lot has been going on in my sewing room too. No gold medals for me (that had to be a finish) but I think I got a lot of silver medals in doing good progress on several of my olympic projects.
This was not one of the projects I had picked, but when I discovered that Annie Downs is coming to Norway in May for a one day class (which I of course have joined) I decided to pull these stitcheries out of the box. The one to the left was half done, and the one to the right was not started. Now they are both stitched and I just have to look for two frames.
I have finished all stitcheries on this one. When starting to sew on the borders I discovered I had too little fabric. Luckily I found it in a shop and it is washed and ready to be sewn on. Still have some hexagons to applique.
My plan was to go for gold with hand quilting my Antique Sampler quilt, but my shoulders refused. But 1/3 is quilted.
Guess this is the project that got my focus these last days. When all applique was done I started to rotary cut all the fabric. And then I just had to start to sew some parts together, and then the quilt was growing and growing. I could not stop sewing. Originally this quilt is done in English Paper Pieceing, but I wanted to do by sewing machine. I really love the look of this.
Now I am waiting for the closing cermony to start. And enjoying sewing some blocks together.
Saying for today:
