A stithchery is finished :o)


Back in Blogland again :o)

Haven't got my lap top back yet, so I still have to borrow my DS's lap top. Anyway, I'm happy to be back for a moment again :o)

I have been sewing some today, FINALLY!!! My shoulder is almost healed, so now I'm able to enjoy my favorite thing again, SEWING. Feels soooo good to finally do a few stitches, when I haven't been able to touch a needle for so long!
I finished my little stitchery from Gail Pan's new book, and I got to paint the frame and put it all together in no time. I hang it on the kitchen wall right away :o) I love to have add some new stuff now and then, in my own house. Not often, but I want to make it more often from now. It's so cozy when you add some homemade stuff, don't you agree?
My kithchen wall is purple, so this is just perfect :o)


Since I haven't got time to finish anything else for OPAM this month, this will be my last reported finish too. I also finished the outside of the little pouch I started earlier. Have to finish the inside too, and I am making this as a Christmas gift for my sweet niece, Mildrid. She was spending some time with me some time ago, and she wanted me to teach her how to make a stitchery. She did so well, and she's almost done with the stitchery now. I'll help her make a little wallhanging or a needlecase of it when she is coming next time :o)




Today, Hubby bought me a suitcase for my trip to Oslo next week. And he knows I just love purple, so purple it is! Ain't this just darned cute? I love it! He's just the sweetest <3

I've never been to Oslo before, and I've never taken a flight before, so it's soooo my first time! My mom is going with me, and I'm also going to meet a friend I've really missed seeing! I'll tell you about it when I get back ;o) We're leaving Trondheim on Wednesday, and we return late Friday. I'm looking forward to this trip, and since I'm such a homesick person, I look forward to get back home too :o) But who knows, if I get the taste of travveling, maybe I'll get hooked on it? We'll see about that :o)
Wish you all a great weekend,

Love your stitchery and the colors you used. Have a lovely trip to Oslo. How special, that it will be your first flight. A lovely suitcase to celebrate.

Nydelig stitchery, som alltid, og en søt liten pung. Og den lekre lilla kofferten misunner jeg deg egentlig litt... Lilla er "min" farge også.
PS. Har ikke glemt det jeg lovet å sende deg, men har desverre ikke hatt mye tid til hverken søm eller blogging etter sommerferien.

It was lovely meeting you last night! Hope both you and your Mum enjoyed an evening with our quilt guild!

You have some lovely finishes here. Gail have some great stitchery designs, and this one is lovely in purple. The purse is just so cute - I'm sure your niece will be thrilled!

What a great hubby getting you a purple suitcase ;o)

Take care and enjoy your stay in Oslo!

Hugs and stitches from me
