Happy new year all my friends.
I have not forgotten my blog, just been a bit busy lately.
I know there is a lot of things I should have blogged about,
some day I may do it (or not),
but for now I just start at today.
January is always a month where I like to work on my UFO's. And last weekend I chose which projects to focus on for a while now. I actually feel good working on these projects and it makes me happy.
I love to do needleturn applique and I have restartet to make blocks for my Stonefields quilt. I am not sure how many I already have done, but there is some. I have been thinking about making it smaller, but just for now I just enjoy sewing the blocks I prepped a long time ago.
Stitchery is so relaxing. I started sewing AnnAKa's christmas early in 2011. This was a project I always brought with me when I sat by my mothers hospital bed. When she passed away in october 2011 I could not manage to stitch on it again, so it has been kept in a box. Now I am ready to stitch on it again. And while working on it now I can remember all the good times when she and I sewed together. Think this will be a very special and dear quilt for me to hang up for Chrismases to come.
I have also found some UFO's that just need some finishing touches by the sewing machine. Some was to be Christmas gifts 2015, but if I now manage to finish them now I have an early start on Christmas gifts for 2016.
And I will do my daily threads of handquilting. It does not sounds that I will make progress with just a few threads each day. But actually it does!!!! And my shoulder and arms will not hurt.
Saying for today:
