Blogging again

Have been sewing a lot, but my computer went black the day after my last post and I have to repair it, for the third time:-(
So in the meantime, I am borrowing my oldest son's computer. Gotta blog!! *lol*

I've had the honor of meeting Hanne Shcneider this weekend. I signed up for her class with Dear Jane. Here she is in front of her lovely "Dear Jane" quilt. She quilted this by hand!
We had a wonderful weekend with Hanne at Quiltegården, and it was so inspiring!
Hanne is such a nice person, and Ireally hope I'll get the chance to meet her again. I know I'll be working a lot with these blocks. This was really fun!! Thanks for the inspiration Hanne!

She also brought her beautiful quilt "Nearly insane". It was absolutely stunning! So much work!

I managed to make three blocks from the Dear Jane this weekend. I know I'll have to practice some more before they are perfect, but it is the first time I am sewing with this method, so I guess they'll pass:-)

I have been working on a cople of new table runners, after finishing my "Festfin frøken", and I am working on one in the same colors, and one with blue cirkcles. This is the result of the first purple one:
I hand pieced a lot of pearls on the ribbon, and they are just making a soft impression I think.
Now I gotta get back to my sewing machine and get some serious sewing done:-)

Happy sewing to you all!

Lykke til med dine Jane blokker. Hanne er en kjempegod lærer så du har nok fått med deg det grunnleggende. Å sy en DJ er en enorm jobb. Din "festfin frøken" er flott.
