Some new doings.

This is a quilt made with blocks from a block-swap. The stitchery are valentine blocks from Quilt-Stina I think. The quilt is a 40 years of marriage anniversary for my hubby and me.
Tablecloths for my daughter in law.
Another blockswap, with 7 other quiltladies. I turned mine into a bag. And of course our dog Mico.

This is the back of it.
A birthdaygift for my eldest daughter. It says, ingen dag uten kaffe. That means.. No day without coffee.

The days have flown by. We have finally got summer. But today it is raining. We need rain, but I hope it will not last for weeks.
I am loading up more fotoes, so stay tune. Have a nice day.

Some of my doings this spring

Have tried out fabric-decopage. It was fun. This heart is for my neighbors birthday. I like it.
This bag I made for my daughters birthday. Lots of them in april.
This is for my second daughter, also decoupage, for her coffee-presser. And it holds the coffee warm.
Two things for myself.A tread-catcher and a pincucion. They are handy.
And at last, some placemats. Also a gift. Is`nt the cats cute?

I have more fotoes ready for you, but I will show them in several posts.
Today we had thunderweather, and that is wery early of the year. So hopefully the summer is on its way. The cold make me so in a bad mode.
By for now, back soon.

The mother-bear is awake, almost...

We had a wonderful weekend with visit from these boys. They had a wonderful time I think.
And so did Mico.
My hubby took this. He and Mico went skiing.
This is my Veranda wiew. Looking foreward to finish it. Think it will be nice.
And this is a ufo from many years ago. I started on Baltimore-blocks, but this is how fare I got. I will finish it and make a pillow of it.
This is going to be a pincushion. Found it in blogland somewhere.
And I have taken on the blocks from Bunny Hill as well. They are cute.
I have found me a handy holder to use when cutting small pieces. No I can cut, and my hands woundt hurt. It is a got to have thing, he he.
At last a big UFO. It is a christmas tablecloth. I dont think it will ever be finished.
These are the things I have been doing the past weeks. I am finally waking up from my " wintersleep". I want the spring to arrive. I am not a winterperson anymore. It is too cold for me.
I need warmth and lots of sun. In meantime I will keep on sewing and knitting.
Have a nice week everyone . I will.
