A looong to do-list for 2010

I haven't been able to sew for several weeks now, but the ideas is popping up in my head, and I am soooo looking forward to start on some of them. My neck has been too bad to do any sewing, and I am taking is easy so it will get better as soon as possible. I thought I could show you the three projects I am planning to start as soon I'm able to. It is three new projects, but they have been on my mind for so long, so I just have to get on with them.
For many months, I have been cutting strips in six different lengths, all 1 1/2" wide every time I cut fabrics for other projects. The result is a bin of LOTS of scraps :o)

The reason I have been cutting these, is because I want to do a scrap quilt from one of Judy Martins books:

The next project is the beautiful quilt from Lynn Roddy Brown's book. This is a quilt I'm cutting twice as many pieces as needed, because my mom and I are going to sew one each. I've also seen this quilt in Quilts and Pieces' blog, it is just a stunning quilt! Go check it out!

The third quilt I'm going to do, is one of Bonnie's scrap quilts, "Bricks and Stepping Stones". I'm a big fan of her scrap quilts, and this one is one of the quilts I can get to finish fast, when I just can get started.

I've got a lot of cutting to do for these quilts, but none of them is tricky to make, and that is a good thing. They might get finished then ;o)

I wish you all a Happy New Year!
Take care,

Merry Christmas!

I am finally back in Blogland, after a looong time!
As you might know, I've been without my lap top for almost two months now, and today the postman came to my door with a package I really have been waiting for! MY NEW LAP TOP ARRIVED!!! I'm soooo happy it came before the Holidays starts!

I haven't been able to do sewing for a long time now, but I have to post my pics from the projects I finished earlier this month.

The first picture is the table runner with angels from AnnAKa's design "Jula varer helt til påske".

The next is the table runner for Advent. This is the third one I've made, and this is the one I am keeping myself :o)

The last picture is the baby wool socks I made for my neighbours newborn baby. They are really tiny, and so cute:o)

I am lookig forward to dinner at Christmas eve with my family, and then we all can relax and just enjoy the rest of the Holidays :o)
I wish you all a Merry Christmas, and I hope you will have some great Christmas Holidays!

I'm still here

Hello there!
It's been so long since my last post, but life just happends, and no time and STILL no return of my laptop from the technichian :o( So no photos from me for a while...

I didn't get time to report for the OPAM this month, but I got to finish up a couple of projects though:o) I was busy with our Christmas sale the whole weekend, and too tired to do any computer work.
My OPAM goals for the last month of the year, is to finish some table runners. I need to finish four table runners, so hopefully I'll get to do that before the end of December :o)

I hope to spend some time in my sewing room this weekend, got some gifts to finish up ;o)
But in between, I'm going to test some baking skills too :o)

Have a great weekend everyone :o)
