Christmas soon...

The Christmas is coming soon, and I have been in Holiday-mood lately. I love doing Christmas projects, and I have several of them going. A lot of work has to be done, but i guess I'll be able to get all of my projects done in time.
Today I received a package in my mailbox. It was an early Christmas gift from my Facebook-friend, Angela from Canada. She is a lovely Lady, and a talented quilter,too.
I became so happy when I opened the package! Such a nice surprise !! She sent me some postcards with pictures from her favourite artist, postcards from her town, a cool pattern with chicks (Chicken soup), and a lovely tin box with a real treasure. A lot of fabric squares in the loveliest fabrics!! I really look forward to figure out what to sew of them!!!

Something new, again....

This weekend I have been starting on something new, again. I like to have several projects going on, or else I get bored....
Saturday, I went downtown shopping at Quiltegården. This is what I ended up with:

I bought some of the newest DMC's Siw just brought in to her shop, and they are gorgeous!
While I'm waiting for Siw to have "Leanne's House" in, I thought I should start on an other stitchery. I guess I will be making two of these, and make a table runner of them with Japanese fabrics. Hope to get it done within November....

Happy Halloween

The kids have been on the usual round with "trick or treat" tonight, and so many kids have been ringing the doorbell at our house, for a bit of candy or three. Mine where out for half an hour, and they were done.

Yesterday I found a lovely quilt with a lot of stars, on my search for inspiration on the Internet. I started cutting fabrics I bought almost half a year ago. Lots of roses is my choice :-)

A mess, at this point.... But I think it will be nice when it's done.
I haven't sewn so many of the pieces together yet, but it will not take long when I just know how I want it.
I like taking photos while I'm doing the puzzle. It is easier to see if things fit or not when you can look at it from a distance.
I really look forward to get it done. Then I have to figure out how to quilt it! I have not been thinking about that yet:-)

I have not sewn so much this weekend, but I did start on some Christmas gifts. They are not done yet, but I hope to finish them next weekend. I am a big fan of AnnAKa's patterns. And a little while ago, I finished these:

They where so much fun to do, so I have sewn several of them in different colors. I also made a table runner to make a kitchen set to give away for Christmas.

This is one of my latest projects. I had so much fun making these, so I guess I will be making a few more of them, in different colors.
