Wonderful summer

The last week of my summer vacation and I am just relaxing and enjoying the last days before going back to work.


So far this summer has been wonderful.  Long time since we had such warm days, and we have had it several weeks now.


A lot of bathing just to cool down.


And when it is too hot I am cooling down in the shadow.  This has been my favorite place this summer.


Or cooling down in the sewing room which has been the coldest place in the house.  Fun to sew these blocks.


I decided to add to more rows than the original pattern had and I am so happy that I have finished this top.  The pattern is from the book The Blue and the Gray.


And in the evenings when the the sun went down it was okey to sit on the other porch sewing down a binding.


Did the last quilting on this quilt today.


Finished !!!! Happy dancing !!!!  But my neighbour next door saw me holding up this quilt while my daughter took photos, and she told me she wanted to buy it.  I told her that I really have to think about that, because I really love it so much myself. 


Last weekend Hanne visited me and we gave eachother prizes for well done Tour de Fibre this summer.  Lot of sewing, chatting and a little road trip to Sweden.

Saying for today:

Do not sell it! It is too gorgeous, you MUST keep it for yourself!

Karen - Quilts...etc. said...

the quilt sure is lovely - only sell if they give you a very good price :) love all that you make.

Gail said...

What can I say. It is beyond beautiful. So much work, and I'm with Karen, "sell it if you can get a good price". You'll find it rewarding to make another one.

Both quilts are beautiful, May Britt. I don't know if I'd be able to sell that quilt!

Oh wow - just lovely. Your piece from the "Blue and Grey" book is wonderful. We are having a marvelous, busy summer but no sewing time. Looking forward to some fall for that.

Your new quilt is beautiful.....it would be hard to part with. Looks like you're making the most of a lovely summer.

Jag tycker att du skall behålla den själv, ligger mycket jobb bakom den och så är den väl just dina färger dessutom. Toppen från "Blue and Grey" är igen ett mästerverk från dej, fantastiskt fin!
Vi körde genom Elverum för en vecka sedan och stannade vid Rica Elgstua och åt god mat. Vackert ort som du bor på!!!

Guri malla så lekker quilten din ble. Gratulerer med ferdigstillelse. Selger man slike arvestykker da? Med all den håndsømmen? Da må det koste så det svir :o))))) Ha en fortsatt flott sommer!
