Comfort quilt and purses

I've been spending a lot of time in my sewing room these days. Hubby has been working out of town a lot the last weeks and the kids are "doing their stuff", and I'm left to do what I want to do after mummy-duties and housework is done. I got a couple of new pantograph patterns on Friday, so I got to start quilting Comfort quilt #3. DS2 chose one of the new ones, called Square Spiral. I just knew he would like it, and it's perfect for this quilt! Both of us love it! Need to add the binding, but got to finish up a couple of things first. 
I have finished one more quilt, but have to wait to show it to you, since it's a secret. Soon you'll get to see it, promise :-)

I'm attending a little market in the middle of September, and I really need to get some things finished till then. It wasn't my plan to attend, but me and some of my colleagues decided just days ago that we would. It will be fun, and I hope to get some small things to have for sale. 
I have tried different patterns, and tried to get rid of my zipper-phobia. LOL! 

I've made three purses today, the red one and the two blue ones in the bottom picture. The grey one was finished the other day.

I've bought some gorgeous lace zippers at Lappedilla, and inspired by my blog friend Nicola I had to make "Anna's sminkepung", a pattern by AnnAKa. I've made a purse using this pattern a long time ago, but that purse didn't turn out so nice like these :
I know the photos are bad, will take better photos in daylight later. But you get the idea, right?
I love these lace zippers, and bought a few in other colors too. Hope to play some more in my sewing in the days ahead :-)

Wish you all a great new week,

Kjære allverden for en produksjon. Utrolig flink du har vært. Det er så deilig å ha slik egentid bak symaskina. Lekre stoffer du har brukt :-)
