A new project and some finishes

This weekend I started a new hand sewing project.  And I have had so much fun digging through my scrapbox and also challenging myself choosing fabrics I never thought would go together.

It is the Halo quilt (design Jen Kingwell).  Bought the templates some time ago.  Still waiting for the book to arrive, but I had no problem to figure out how the blocks are buildt by looking at photos on the internet.

My first two blocks and I have prepped three more.  So fun sewing these blocks.

Some finishes since last time I blogged.  These dresden plate blocks have been laying here for a long time. Was not sure what to make of them.  But when I decided to make a tablerunner I finished it in no time.

When Hanne made a blogpost about one of her Ufo's recently, she reminded me that I too had the same one some place in my sewing room.  Time to finishe this one too, and I am so happy how it turned out.  It is on my kitchen table now.

 I love stitchery and in my ufo box I have SEVERAL stitcheries.  Time to make something of some of them.  These three small stitcheries is now decorating small bags.  And I still have plenty of stitcheries to turn into something.  Planning to make christmas gifts.

So happy this quilt is finished.  Floral Garden (design Irene Blank).  Long time since I started this one.  I decided that I did not want to make more blocks and just use the one I had.  I am very pleased with the size of this quilt.  I do not have a lot of big walls to hang my quilts.  So this size was perfect.

I love Irene Blanks patterns and this one is from her book Focus on Applique.  Love doing needleturn applique and I enjoy so much working on these blocks.

We are having extraordinary september weather now. Wonderful days with summer temperatures.  This photos was taken last thursday while I was cleaning my windows on the top floor.

Saying for today:

wow you have some lovely finishes! well done...
I've got some spare dresdens too think they might be turned into a table runner too, as we are heading into Spring/Summer, they will fit perfectly!
thanks for the inspiration

Kjekt å lese! Boka er ikkje komen på Adlibris endå. Må nok kjøpe den. Malane fekk du vel på Kathrines?

You do such beautiful work! I know how exciting it is to get those UFO's finished and put to good use. You must be doing a very big happy dance. :-)
