Opam report, June

Yessss! I made it! I finished my 'Precious things' bag, so now I have one finish for the OPAM this month :o)

Funny how these little finishes makes me happy. I guess it's good for your selfesteem to finish up things you've started, even the smallest things, right?
It sure feels good to finally have some sewing time again ;o)

Happy sewing,


A few photos

I am trying to learn a few things about my new camera, and a thing or two about how to capture interesting photos. The more I learn, the more I realize I don't know...
But I try to play with my camera anyway, and I hope to get to understand some more as I go.
The other day we had a heavy thunderstorm with lots of rain. When the bad weather was gone, I took my camera with me outside. I love to look at the raindrops that is left on flowers and things. This is some of the photos I captured:

No sewing stuff in this post, but I am trying to get some time in my sewing room today, so I will write about it in a later post ;o)

Wish you all a wonderful day :o)

Another secret project ;o)

I've been doing a lot of cutting for a new quilt lately. This is my secret project number two ;o) Last weekend I got to start piecing, and I'm so excited to see the quilt is 'growing' :o) I have no pattern to follow, so I just do whatever I think looks good! I will show you the whole quilt when it's finished, but a little sneakpeek:

I will be working on this quilt this weekend too, and I look forward to get to the part when I can attach the borders!!! I will have a challenge when I get to the quilting, since I haven't figured out that part yet. I've used mostly my Japaneese fabrics, and it will be a quilt for a boy. This quilt is perfect for scraps, and you know how I love srap quilts :o)

I finished the stitchery for the 'Precious things' bag I started working on a whie ago, and I got to attach the stitchery to the front of the bag too. I'll get back to it when I finish my secret project :o)

It's raining and it's cold here, even if it's almost Midsummer... too bad, but I will spend the weekend in my sewing room, so I don't let it bother me. But it would be great with some sun and warmer weather, so I hope this Summer will not go by with only weather like we're having these days!

I have a day off work today, so I'll get back to my sewing room to make some progress ;o)

Have a great weekend,

I haven't done much in my sewing room lately, like I thought I would. I have so many projects to finish, but with no energy to work on them and a neck not working with me these days, the projects have to wait. But I've been looking for inspiration among a lot of great blogs. I've discovered several ones I've bookmarked, and I thought I would share some of them with you.
Stash Manicure by Jantine and her friends, they are having a stash manicure challange you might want to join.
Magnolia Bay Quilts by Kim, she is the author of Scrap-Basket Surprises. The pattern for the "Kitchen Sink" quilt I am working on is from that book. Kim makes some really beautiful quilts!!!
Cotton Way by Bonnie, and her daughter's blog Siplify, is also two blogs I really wanna follow. Yummy colors and patterns!!!
Hope you allso will find some inspiration, like I did. Enjoy the blog-hopping :o)

One of my all time favorite flowers are 'forget-me-nots'. Since I was a little girl I have picked these for my mom every Spring. This one is from my mom's garden. I didn't pick it, just captured it in a photo this time :o)

Happy sewing,
