I'm sewing again!

I'm finally back in my sewing room, sewing again! Yesterday I couldn't resist cutting a few pieces of fabric and piece together a small purse. I felt like a newbie to be honest, since it's been almost five months since I did this! Been too long without playing with needles and thread!!!

The little red purse was finished yesterday, and the blue and cream one was finished today.



I haven't been able to sew at all the last five months because of some major rebuilding of  the second floor in our house. I never thought it would be such a long term thing, but I'm so glad it's finally coming to an end!  There is still lots of stuff that needs to come out of boxes and bins, and my sewing room isn't at all cleaned up and it's so messy around here. All the clutter, noise and stuff has been very tiring for me, so I have been sooo exhausted the last months. I'm feeling a bit better now that I can relax again, and I will take one day at a time and get my house back to normal again. Can't wait to have everything back in place!

Quilt inspector Suzu is just as happy as I am for finally enjoying som sewing room time :o)


During the months without my sewing room I have been knitting. I've knitted a few things I'll show in a post later when I finish them up. 
This is a photo of a hat I'm working on:


I look forward to hours of cozy stuff during the winter time ahead. And since Christmas is coming soon, I will try to finish up some projects I have in mind for presents. I guess a lot of my sewing friends are in Christmas mode too :o)

Wish you all a nice Sunday!

Hugs,
Laila

Hei Laila, så koselig å se deg tilbake her :) Og som vanlig har du noe fint å vise oss ! Koselig med pus på syrom, hører liksom med. Lykke til med nye prosjekter og rydding av syrom. Klem Lena

Disse pungene ble kjempekoselige! Hyggelig å ha en "sy-kamerat" med seg på syrommet :)

Så bra at du er kommet deg i gang :-) Utrolig hvor lyst man kan ha å sy når muligheten ikke er der.
Koselige punger du har sydd. Gleder meg til å se hva mer du tryller frem :-)
