Sewingroom update

Already several days into February.  I think each day that now is the day to do a blogpost, then I get busy with other things.  But I have been busy in the sewing room, so I will give you an update on that.

Progress on my red and white quilt.  The center piece is almost done.  Just have to sew these three parts together.  Using triangle paper makes the peaces go perfect together.  More triangle paper is on my shoppinglist.

I spent one whole sunday in the sewingroom prepping the borders.  And my sewingroom was a big mess in the evening. You all know I love prepping projects.

Because then I can just sit down and relax with my sewing.

And most of the time i get company while sitting in my chair sewing. This quilt will be my focus project now.  I have a plan.  Just saying April and Shipshewana.

Last weekend my quilt guild had invited Anna-Malin to teach us how to sew Diva purses.

It was a great workshop and I started to make a Diva and a SewTogetherDiva. And I actually finished both of them during the weekend.

Here is my two Diva's closed.

And here they are open.  I am so happy how they turned out.  Both are already in use.

Some beautiful fabrics came home with me.  I think easter and spring.

Welcome to 2017

Happy new year everyone.  A new year with new possibilities. And let us all hope 2017 will be a good year for everything.  There is two months since I posted and I can just tell you all that it has been som very hectic months, both at home and at work. I know that there will not be that much different in the coming year, so I can't make any promises that I will blog more often.  But I will try.  As told you before, I am on instagram and it is easier to do quick posts there.  So please visit me on instagram.

This is my top nine insta posts in 2016.  I am quite happy with what I have done.  Having focus on ufo's I have actually manage to finish several projects.  And one promise I can give is that I will continue my project finish-ufo's in the coming year.  It gives me joy to pick a focus project and some day being able to call it a finish.

On this first day of 2017 I have been relaxing in my sewing room.  I started to sew together all these squares that I sewed last time my friend and I was at the cabin.  I bought the pattern, the background fabric and a lot of red fabrics when I was in Shipshewana november 2015.  There is a lot of work on this quilt, but maybe I can have as a goal to bring the top with me in April when I am going back there.
