Cabin trip with “Trådsnellene”

P1090561

For the first time in many year all “Trådsnellene” (the name of our quilt group) was able to join the fall long weekend reatreat at the cabin.  We have had such wonderful weather all weekend.  Been able to sit outside every day. Lot of laughter and chitter chatter.

This year I did not bring my sewing machine.  Focus this weekend was my Stonefield blocks and handquilting on my Aunt Sarah quilt.  Out in the sun all day long, relaxing and just enjoying life.

We had a lot of wind most of the days so we had to keep all our small pieces safe.  My blocks was several times hanging in a thin thread LOL.

Other girls had brought their sewing machines, and when the sun got to hot or the wind got to strong for my blocks outdoors, I spendt my time indoors with them.

Mette is sewing tablemats for Christmas.

There was several other projects too, but when the photoshoot started a lot was already packed out in the car.  We always forget to take photos before packing.

I finished six blocks for my Stonefields quilt.  Had planned to glue a lot of hexagons, but that was too boooooooring to do LOL  So relaxing to just do needleturn applique.

But I handquilted my daily threads on my Aunt Sarahs quilt.  I am almost half way done with the quilting. It is a great idea to andquilt a few threads in the morning and a few threads in the evening.  Doing it this way my arms is still good, and I see the progress.

This has been a wonderful weekend with friends.
