5 days until Nadine is coming!!!

But first a photo of me in the car back home from the vendors fair on thursday. There was almost no room for me in the backseat, but it felt good sitting there wrapped in fabrics. So now there are a lot of new bolts of fabric in our local quiltshop.
Next thursday Nadine is coming over from Belgium to Norway to visit me. Please go over to her blog and read the story she have posted. I'm so looking forward to meet her. She is a blogfriend I "met" some time ago. We have never met in person, just via mail and now we are chatting on msn. I know we'll have a great time together. And one time during her visit we have invited Hanne, Laila, Anne Ida and some other friends for a little sewingtogether.

But what about my's a complete mess......again. By christmas it was so tidy and a total mess. And now Nadine is comming for an inspection. I have to do someting about it.
There are several bloggers that have showed their sewingtables and what's on it.
And what's on mine:
My belowed sewingmachine
a lot of threads and bobbins
Tilda box filled with thread
several scissors
rotary cutter
my rotarycutter mat
bindings from last project
fabrics, fabrics, fabrics and more fabrics
A BLACK CAT (you know Frida loves to sit on my sewingtable)
a lot of different rulers
my otlight lamp (can't live without it)
more boxes (can't get enought of boxes)
patterns from projects I plan to do now
And not to mention all the cathair hehehe
So....what's on your sewing table. Is it more messy than mine hehehe.
So tomorrow I start cleaning my sewingroom so Nadine will not be too chocked when she enter into it.
And now it's only 5 more days to finish some WISPs.
The last reports are from:

Monika have finished her third WISP, this time a angel stitchery.

Juliann have finished a little sampler wallquilt.

Karrin have finished two beautiful crazy quilts.

Sigrun have finished her 5th WISP.

Christine have finished two pincushions.

Nancy have finished four place mats.

Christine is really doing great work on her WISPs, here is two more done.

Kerry have finished a tablerunner.

Elin have finished a pillow (her 12th WISP)
Saying for today:

How exciting for you and Nadine to meet in person. But I agree I think you will have to organize your sewing room a little :)

jodie said...

Looks like you had the best seat in the car, with all that fabric! You will have a great time when Nadine comes to stay, blog friends are the best.

Karrin Hurd said...

You look comfortable. I think my mess tops yours, I posted pictures of my mess today.

dot said...

You look so happy thee with all that fabric. A messy sewing room?? It could only mean a busy lady.

Unknown said...

I love the look of your sewing room. Isn't that the way they are suppose to look? Remember we have to get those WISPS done.

Well, I need to report that I have finished 5 now. Which includes my TB club quilt from 06. A friend quilted it for me but I finished the binding. Have pictures in my blog.

Have a good time with Nadine. It's so much fun to meet these friends we talk to in our blogs.

Darlene said...

I am so excited for you and Nadine. I can hardly wait for her to arrive at your home. Frida is looking out the window, anticipating Nadine's arrival. :-)

Hanne said...

You look comfortable among the fabric. Have a great visit with Nadine!

Liz said...

Hi May, I'm glad I'm not the only one who has a cre8tive mess in their sewing room!!! (Like the quotes - I,m creative, you can't expect me to be neat too & I'm not messy, I'm creative :) I always start of with good intentions of being neat and tidy but that flys out the window every time. Looking forward to hearing of your great time you will have with Nadine.
Take care & have fun, kind regards from Liz.

blueberrylane said...

I think having a mess is a sign of being creative :)
What is the lovely big fat roll of fabric on your cutting mat ?

Thimbleanna said...

How exciting about your visit from Nadine. I hope you have a great time. I've always thought cats were standard equipment on a sewing table, and yours is exceptional!

Juliann in WA said...

Have a wonderful time with Nadine. I just posted another January finish - a big two for me but they were fun and I am so happy to have some new things to hang.

Perry said...

It would be fun to look around in your sewing room....and dig, and ooh, and ahhh, I just love it! Mine is all cleaned up for a change and I can't find a thing! LOL...isn't that the way of it? Enjoy your visit with Nadine.

atet said...

Oh what a wonderful visit to look forward to! Enjoy the cleaning.

Teresa said...

Hi May!
We have the same model Janome and I love mine too. I guess I am going to have to show my room, but my cutting table has been taken over by my two daughters and their machines (both Janome), but we do have our fun times sewing together.

Quilts And Pieces said...

Oh have a wonderful wonderful time! That picture of you in the car is too funny!

Hilary Gray said...

Please tell me the fabric that's in a bundle on your table? It's pink and lights. I love that line.
I love the quilt you finished of Leannes'. Love your blog.
