Progress on Nature Journey

P1090294

At the cabin last weekend I got time to do a lot of needleturn applique and stitching on my Natures Journey project.  This is a design by Annie Downs who is one of my favorite designers.

P1090301

Progress so far is that I have finished the center block.

P1090302P1090303

And several blocks.  They are so fun and fast to sew.  Love working on these blocks.

P1090304

Still some blocks left to work on.  There is a few small ones that need to be made.

A quilt weekend at the cabin

P1090296

Thursday evening after work I went to the cabin at Evensberget to meet up with some other quilting friends. Four of them had already arrived wednesday, and I picked up another and came thursday evening.  Lots of projects in our bags, sewingmachines, good food and some wine. Met my neighbour when packing my stuff in the car, and he asked if I was moving LOL. But quilters always pack enough to be safe.

P1090282

Sewingmachine on the table at once when I arrive. My goal was to do a lot of sewing on my triangle frame for my Phebe quilt.

P1090284P1090285

One of the girls had brought with her a new ruler that was tested.

P1090287

And some of the girls made these lovely tablerunners.  Think I have to try out this ruler one day.

P1090292

As you see a lot of things was done these days at the cabin.

P1090294

I had brought with me my Natures Journey as handsewing project, and I got a lot of blocks done.

P1090306

And manage to sew a lot of triangles.  5 of 8 rows are done. 

P1090298

Then it was time to go home. Always sad to leave the cabin. But we are coming back in august.

Progress on my Phebe quilt

P1090267

During my Easter vacation I got a lot done on my Phebequilt.  My goal was to add the Ohio star blocks.  And when I first started to add the blocks it was fast and fun.  I reached my goal.

P1090268

Next frame in progress.  I traced the triangels to freezer paper, cut rows and started to sew.

P1090281

Two rows finished, two more to be done. Not to mention  that this triangle frame is repeated once more, so I still have four rows longer than these to sew.  Plus some other frames and ohio star blocks.  Still a lot of sewing to be done on this quilt.  But I am having fun.

A little Easter quilt shop hop

P1090262

We needed some refill today and headed our way to our local quiltshop Kreative Ingema at Flisa. I am so glad she started her quiltshop so that we can get refill without driving too far.  This is just half an hour to drive for us.

P1090259

Inger Marie is giving us very good service.

P1090260

And she has plenty for us to choose from. 
Love those two table runners at display.

P1090261

P1090263

 

P1090266

The only thing I had on my shopping list was stitchery batting, but as you see some fabrics also came home with me.  Going to make another pillow with the fabrics to the right.  Not so happy with my first choice of fabric that I already have started to stitch on.  They did not work in my sofa.  Off to cut my new fabrics and give it another try.

Happy Easter!

I’ve started my Easter vacation. A long week off from work.  And I am going to spend most of the time in my sewingroom.

Saturday evening was Earth Hour.  My DD came visiting me and it was so cosy turning off all the light and then light a lot of candles. 

P1090252

Today I spendt most of my time in the sewingroom. 

P1090253

Adding more borders to my Phebequilt.  Love working on this quilt.

P1090254

Rusken loves to stay in the sewingroom with me.  A bit grumphy today because he wanted me to cuddle him, but I was occupied with my sewing machine.

P1090256

My DD also joined me in my sewing room, working on a Easter decoration.  So nice to have company while sewing.
