Oh! I forgot I have another two finishes!

I fotgot to blog these two finishes. I finished the two pairs of knitted socks early this month. I made them for my two youngest boys. A pair of grey/white ones for Thomas, and a pair of dark blue/white ones for Mats. I guess they will not get used this winter, since it's no longer so cold anymore, but they are ready for next season:O)

Outside it's snowing a little bit. But we shure feel the Spring temperatures, and when the sun rises it feels really warm. I look forward to Easter, and hope there will be some sunny days too:O) I have not prepared any Easter projects, but I will do some this weekend. Some Easter eggs in fabric stuffed, and maybe some pearls... We'll see:O)

Back in Blogland again :O)

I'm finally back in Blogland again, after a loooooong break because of computer trouble. I've lost almost all of my pictures, but I'm glad I have some of it on a backup cd. But all my e-mails are gone, so I'm not able to answer back to you that left me a message before 14th of March:O( Please send me a new mail, and I'll respond to you.

I have'nt been sewing much the last 14 days. I've had a lot of migraine again, and my neck is not cooperating at all. But that's how it is with me, so I j
ust wait for better days:O) They will come, I know:O)

I managed to finish one project this month, not much, but still... a finish. I finished the baby quilt I started with a while ago. I'm satisfied with the result, so I guess I'll be making more of these:O)
I'm thinking about making a baby quilt for a boy next time, since I have a lot of lovely blue fabrics that fits for a project like that.
I have so many projects going on, but it works best for me to do it this way, and I know they will be finished sometime, it just takes some time:O)
I look forward to the Easter Holidays, I've planned to do a lot of sewing then:O)

Blogging without pictures :O(

Ahwww! I'm not able to blog with any pictures these days:O( My new lap top just crashed the other day, and all my stuff is gone. Pictures, e-mails, ideas and worst of all... my new pattern is lost! The hard drive is totally ruined, and now I'm waiting for a new one from the dealer. I can honestly say I did swear out loud when I did find out it's nothing I can do to save my stuff. I got the pc in December last year, and it's already dead! GRRRRR! I did get the new one because the old one crashed so many times, so the dealer sent me a brand new one. I cannot figure out how it's possible for a new one to crash like this, but these pc's are not to depend on!!! Make backup's out there!!!
I was just making some more copies of my Easter pattern, when it went black, so now I have to redo all of it. I never made a back up....
Well, lesson learned...
Now I'm using my kids pc, and no quilting pictures here, strange... :O) But I'll just use the time waiting to be back "on net", on sewing, so I'll go back to my sewing room again now :O)

I wish you all a great weekend, and happy sewing!

Some Kaleidoscope blocks

When I woke up this mornig, we had no power. It have been quite stormy outside for days now, but last night it really got windy! The power came back about half past nine this morning, so it was not as bad as I thought it would be. Phew!!! The storm continued till this morning, and it haven't stopped blowing yet. It's not that bad outside now, but no weather to spend the day outside...
I have been handquilting a little bit today, and I made some
new Kaleidoscope blocks for the light/blue quilt I am working on. I saw a quilt on the internet with this star in the middle, so I decided to try that.I have no idea how big this quilt will be, I'm just sewing blocks at this point :O)
I should add more of the dark fabric somewhere, but I haven't figured out where yet.

Wish you all a great week, and happy sewing:O)

The winners are....

I had help from my two youngest boys to pick two of you girls, that left me a comment on the Give away.... And the winners are: Satu (Quilttales) and Laila (Jacob's Quilt)Congratulations :O) Please send me an e-mail with your adresses, and I'll ship the patterns to you:O)

Thanks to everyone that left a comment! I'm so grateful for your nice words.

I've had so much fun designing this pattern, and guess I'll be doing more of this:O)

Happy sewing,

A give away of course!

I wanna celebrate the release of my Easter pattern, so I will have a giveaway of course!
If you would like to win a pattern, I have 2 to give away. Leave a comment and I will draw the winners on Sunday.....good luck:o)

My secret project :o)

This is how my table runner for Easter looks like:o) Designing this one, was such fun, and I am already thinking about a new project:o)
But got a lot of other things to finish first, so I'll work on it between everything else.

The projects I am going to list for March finishes are: The Easter table runner in light colors, the knittet socks; have to get them done this month... I didn't have time to do that last month... Then I am going to finish the Kaleidoscope quilt I started on.

Outside the sun is shining, but it's blowing too much to sit outside. But the days are longer each day now, and we have a wonderful spring to look forward to.

Wish you all a great day, and happy sewing:o)

Busy days...

Have been so busy these days. Not even time for some blogging. I also forgot to blog my finished project on the Challenge, but sometimes time is not easy to control:o) I did the list though...
Siw, the owner of Quiltegården, was busy cutting fabrics for one the BOM's she is having in her store:o) She is always a big smile, and I love her store!

Right picture: Siw, Hanne (our teacher) and Hanne-Kristine.

I had such a wonderful time both Saturday and Sunday down at Quiltegården. Hanne is such a great teacher, and both the hand quilting class and Kaleidoscope class was such a great experience! I've already planned to do a Kaleidoscope quilt, just got to have some other things done first. I got to finish the blocks for the little quilt I started this weekend, and I'm pretty satisfied with the result. I am going to make a little table runner of it. Just have to add a border first.
I love the effects of these blocks, don't you?

I am going to list this one in the Challange as a finish for March, and I will list some other things too, in a later post. Just have to use one more day to figure out the rest of them. I'll post them tomorrow:o)

Happy sewing,
