A weekend with sewing

I have been struggling with some head and neck pain lately, and have not been sewing much. This weekend I got some sewing done, and it was so good to finally sit down and enjoy what I love the most. I started on a bag/purse more than a year ago, and I finished it today:-) Jippi!!
I took a class making this bag/purse some years ago, and I have been using the one I made since then, and it is absolutely worn out. It was really about time to make a new one, and I love it:-)

Some days ago I got the BOM#2 from Lappemakeriet. It was an envelope with fabrics and paper pieces for three more stars for this lovely quilt. I got to start working on it this weekend,too. And I look forward to get the two others done as well. It does not take so much time as I believed at first, so I guess it will be fun to finish it.

I am also working on "Leanne's House". I started in July this year with it, but have not posted any photos of it in my blog, so here is one of the blocks I'm working on. I love this quilt, and cannot wait to get it done, so I can decorate my living room with it:-)
This is one of the stitcheries on block #5, the one in the middle.

I wish you all a lovely Atumn,




Hærlig veske og stitcheriet var nydeligt:-)
Ha ei fin og kreativ uke

Ooooh Laila! Your bag is just fantastic! I enlarged the picture. What detail! Your stitching looks terrific. And I love the zipper too! Congratulations on a fine finish!

And your hand embroidery is just delightful! That's your blog header, isn't it!

Good to hear from you...but I'm so sorry that your days and nights have been uncomfortable for you. You're in my thoughts, sweet friend.
