OPAM report :o)

I'm pretty satisfied with my second finish this month, and the quilt are already in use :o)
I finished it earlier this week, but haven't had time to post it. I'm glad I did enlarge the top when I pieced it. It's two rows wider and longer than I first decided, but I thought it had to be larger, and I'm happy with that deciscion! Guess I'll have to take my power naps more often now, right? :o)

My oldest did cut the picture a little too much, so the binding don't show, but in the previous post you can see I used one of the darkest purple. And that fabric is one of my favorites for sure! I just love the colors. I used a grey thread for the quilting, and it's showd up purple when it's near the purple fabrics! Pretty cool!
I have no idea what to do next, but I guess I'll work some more with my other two quilts. We'll see ;o) I'm behind on e-mails and stuff again, so I guess I'll do something with that this weekend before anything else.

It's Hubby's birthday today, and we've had our relatives over for cakes and coffee, and we've had a great evening. The youngest two have a day off school tomorrow (vacation), and I'm having a day off work, so we'll sleep a bit longer and we look forward to have a weekend one day longer than we use to :o) Late breakfast is nice once now and then :o)
Wish you all a great weekend,

Hei Laila!

Så fine quilter du lager! :) Jeg er også litt stoffavhengig, men har dessverre litt dørstokkmil fram til symaskina for tiden... Prøver å få ferdig et sengeteppe her, men jeg har sannelig klart å endre noen innstillinger på maskina mi midtveis, så da jeg skulle montere sammen så var det forskjellig størrelse på blokkene.... :( Måtte sannelig sprette opp nærmere 60 blokker. Skikkelig joy-kill! Men når jeg ser dine fine arbeider får jeg litt lyst til å finne fram maskina igjen!

Hilsen Tina Bugge Pedersen :)
