Getting back to sewing turned out to take a longer period of time than I ever could imagine. Yet another set back with my illness issues makes me tired and no energy at all.
Starting on new medicines will hopefully make everything better and hopefully back to normal again in a couple of months.
Yesterday and today I have been doing a little bit of scrap busting, and I have pieced some new Haystack blocks and a few 9 patch blocks using the lovely scraps I've been saving for more than a year now.
Lots of these where already precut, so it was nice to just sit down and piece them together. I love to do some mindless sewing with happy colours these days, it makes me happy :o)
I have no plan for these 9 patch blocks yet, but I just love how they turned out, and will make something cute with them in the end.
I've been out photographing a little bit, and I love all the flowers popping up everywhere! I feel so fortunate to live out on the country to see the lovely Summer landscape with lots of colours from beautiful flowers.
I really look forward to go hiking a lot again as soon as my energy level is back and my body is working better. My doctor says I have to take it slow for a while, but one step at a time I will get back to where I used to be :o)
I love my new Panasonic Lumix GX8 so much, and it's so much fun shooting photos with it! A little bit of editing in Lightroom is fun too, and I think I will contine trying to learn more about editing now that I figured out this much. It is hard to teach an old dog new tricks, but not hopeless! LOL!

I have been sewing a little bit today. A rainy day here in Trondheim, so it's the perfect weather for staying indoors playing with some happy colours. I have done a little progress on the Haystack blocks I have in the making, and soon I have enough blocks for a table runner.
Nano has also enjoyed some quiet time in the sewing room with me today. Poor furball has been away for 4 days, and she was deeply missed! I have no clue where she's been, even if I have been looking all over for her. So glad she came back home!!!
I have been mostly knitting, and I have started a new project using the Tumi yarn from Rauma Garn. Just love this yarn, so great to knit with!
Haven't been much out shooting photos for a while, but I hope the weather will be better soon. I miss my short hikes with Hubby, so I hope we'll go again later this week when the weather will be better.
