I love to make progress!

As usual on Wednesdays, I had a day off work today, and I am so happy the bugs giving me a week with a nasty cold, is starting to move out. No fun when these bugs runs through your system, that means no sewing :o( My voice is coming back as normal too, so now I can hear when I'm talking to myself again :o) Hihi, I tend to do so when I'm working along :o) Crazy, I know!
Since today was a day I felt better, I got to do some work in my sewig room again. It's been too long between the pleasures of doing something creative, so I just kept my eyes shut for housework and "must do" stuff today. And that feels so great! And this is what I've been up to:

The colors are not so good in some of the photos, but... I got to baste and start quilting my "Purple love". And this will be my focus project the rest of the week. I've decided that I'm going to finish it before the weekend is over :o) And I can do it!


I have been playing around earlier, quilting some of the care quilts. I have been practicing some with this pattern, on paper, and found out I the time was right to try on some quilts. I tried to make the "hooks" a bit huge, so the quilt will not feel flat when it's covered by this quilting pattern. Wish I could do a better job on the quilting, but this is the best I can do at this point, and practice makes perfect, right?


These (two) quilts are donated by some other sweet ladies, and I just baste, quilt and make the binding on them. When they are finished, they will be published at Tepper til St.Olav's blog.
Every charity quilt donated and made for kids with long term diseases at out local hospital, is published there. So many lovely quilts, that makes a little difference. I'm happy to be a part of this work, and hope to finish the ones I keep in a bin, between other stuff I'm working on.

I wish you all a great week, and happy sewing!
Laila

Your quilting looks great -- I also like open patterns so the quilt stays soft and cuddly.
