Sewing weekend

When having freezing cold outdoors (we had as low as minus 29 C this weekend) the best thing to do is to spend some time in the sewingroom.


 I pulled out a lot of my fabrics.  Mostly the "fresh" fabrics from my trip to USA in november.  Felt good to start cutting into these new fabrics.


Rusken does not go outdoors when it is so cold, and he loves to spend time in the sewingroom with me. And he loves to sit on my fabric or at the spot when he is mostly in my way.



With a new blade on my rotary cutter I was ready to cut in my new fabrics.  Notice that I have a little jar for all my used blades and needles.  Do not want to just throw them in my garbage.  


And this is how far I came with this project.  I have joined a sew along on facebook (closed group) and we are now doing the Plus quilt.  I had so much fun sewing it.  If you want the pattern you can visit Lailas blog here or Stinas blog here.  My plan is to something for my kitchen table, but to get a square tablerunner with not square blocks ........I have to do some thinking and drawing.  But I will manage......I hope.

Saying for today:

That will be a beautiful table runner. I love the colours. It's cold here today too (-14C with windchill of -20C). Thank goodness we don't have to go outside :)

Good plan staying in your sewing room with Ruskin when it's that cold outside. You made great progress, too. Love the plus blocks! Hoping that warmer weather is on its way to both of us very soon.

Så behagelige farger, og et anvendelig mønster. Dette blir nok fint. Takk for tipset med å samle skarpe saker i et glass.

I love your fabrics and you have certainly zoomed along making so many blocks. Ruskin is a typical cat. I miss mine even though he did sit on my cutting mat while I was trying to cut fabric or swipe at strips of fabric I'd cut LOL.
