Progress

I forgot to show the finished quilt top, made with the Bliss line. I thought I would make one big quilt, but made up my mind and made two smaller ones. I've only finished one of them, and the other is almost finished. Just need to add the sashing between the rows. I found the backing piece I need to get it quilted yesterday, so I will finish this in a few days I hope.

I've also made some progress on my stitchery project. The table runner is looking great so far :o)
Got to take a break from all the hand sewing, since it's not so good for my neck and shoulders.


A couple of weeks ago we went to take a walk in the forrest, to a little lake we use to go to, with my brother and his family. We also brought our fishing gear, but we didn't catch any fish this time. But we had a cozy time, eating hot dogs and baked potatoes. Mum and dad joined us later, and their dog Luna was happy to join us too :o)
I love these trips with my family, and I hope we'll have many cozy times like this during this summer.


Since we've been having so much rain and low temperatures till now, I hope the rest of the summer will be much better. We really deserve some more sun, I think :o)

Wish you all a great weekend,
Laila

Flott teppe. Pass på skuldrene og nakken. På fradag skal jeg innom Quiltegaarden. Gleder meg som en unge. Ha en fin St.Hansfeiring. Vår feiring blir i bilen på vei til Trondheim.

Your quilt top turned out so beautiful! I've tried to avoid the white solid for my projects as it will show "everything", but yours looks just perfect and so pretty :) And your stitchery is looking fun, too! That reminds me of I also have my stitchery project somewhere in my closet...
