A wonderful warm and sunny weekend

This long weekend has been wonderful.  The sun has been shining and I have spendt a lot of time out on the porch.  Today we are celebrating the Norwegian Liberation day.

I have done all the applique on my Christmasquilt (which is a very old UFO).  And early this morning I sewed on the binding.  But it has been to hot to have this big quilt in my lap to sew down the binding.  So I save the binding for colder days, or warm nights out on the porch.

 I am so happy it is finished (well..... almost finished) and this one will bring back a lot of good memories of my mother now.  Looking forward to have it up on my wall next Christmas.

It has been the warmest day this year so far and I needed some easy sewing.  Looking throught my boxes I found this UFO.  Do not understand why I put it aside, because I really like these blocks.  It is from Carolyn Konigs book Creating Heirlooms.

36 blocks was already done.  A lot of blocks prepped ready to be finished.  Happy sewing.

Saying for today:
