A cozy Sunday

Today my sister-in-law, Mona, came to my house for some sewing together with me. We had a cozy time, chatting, laughing and a lot of sewing. She did a great job on her table runner. She finished the top, and now she's looking forward to continue with the quilting. She was pretty satisfied with the result herself, too :o)

I was downtown to Quiltegården the other day, had to show Siw the result so far on the purse we started making last weekend when I attended Yoko Saito's class;o) I'm a really slow hand quilter, so it takes time for me to finish this project, I guess... But I'm enjoying these pieceful moments of hand quilting.
But after a couple of days working without a timble on my left hand, my fingers got so sore! I just cannot get used to the timble!
Siw showed me some new stuff she's got in her shop. Instead of a timble you can use a small metallic gadget with a tiny pad of doblesided tape, and you put it on top of the finger you work with from under the quilt, and it worked! I'm quilting faster now :oD
On the right hand you use a little leather gadget instead of a timble, and with these two, it is much easier to hand quilt! Yay! I really found my way to do the hand quilting :o)


I've managed to attach the binding on two care quilts today, so the rest of the evening I will continue working on my hand quilting skills :o)

Wish you all a great Sunday,
Laila

I really like that tablerunner, which fabrics did she use?

Høres ut som dere har hatt en super sysøndag. "Japan-veska" blir kjempefin, kjekt med hjelpemidler når håndquiltinga går på helsa løs. Ønsker deg ei fin og kreativ påske.

Ser ut som dere hadde en perfekt søndag ;o) Svigerinna har sydd en kjempefin løper. Japanveska di kommer til å bli flott, hva så om det tar litt tid å få den ferdig.

De fingerbølene ser interessante ut. Jeg har heller aldri klart å bli fortrolig med de vanlige...

Ha en riktig fin og kreativ påske!
Klem

Heisann! Kjekt at vi er flere trøndere som syr japan-veska. Ikke akkurat fort gjort nei... ser ut som du har kommet en god del lenger enn meg :-)
Fortsatt god påske!

Alltid nokre nye lure idear å hente ved å titte rundt omkring på bloggane. Dette var nytt for meg.
Fin løper med fine farger.
Ønsker deg ei riktig god påske.

The table topper is very nice. I also like your solution for the thimbles, because I hate to wear thimbles just like you do.

Takk for sist, og takk for fine bilder! Du har jo vært kjempeflink og kommet langt på veska (må innrømme at jeg har ikke gjort noe siden kurset).
