A feeling of spring

Now when Christmas is over I felt that I was longing for a breeze of spring. I took these fabrics and started to sew.

Square in a square

This is how the table runner turn out, with a breeze of spring. It still needs batting and backing, quilting and binding.

In the hen house these lovely ladies have also got the spring feeling, eggs are comming. Thank you ladies <3

Pot holders

I knitted these pot holders this Christmas/New year.

I stareted with the snowman pot holers. It was so fun that I wanted to continue knitting. I did not have more garn at home so I was a little shaky not to go on kniting. Then I remember that I should have started on those green ones more then ten years ago. I knew that they wasn´t finished. Desperate I started looking in my stuff for this woork. The problem was that I have moved it around sometimes and I did not know where to look for it. I did find it in the end and I finished it. Qute for easter, don´t you think? I did not have to worry about started on the white and black one, I made sure to go buy some more yarn just waiting to turn into another cupple of pot holders.

Who knows, mayby I start on another pair of pot holders, the yarn is waiting, or... maybe I get back to the sewing again. Just can´t make my mind up :-)

Have a nice week, Elisabeth

A little beauty

In December 1995 the 31st at 01.39 this little beautiful baby girl was born. Yes, she realy was beautiful. She is my girl, and to me she was the most wonderful baby girl I ever had seen.

Att the age of one she was a real mums girl, happy and kind and a good little sister.

She was so proud of her first new bicycle I still remember that day. We had bougth the bicycle when she was away for a few days, and when she come back the bike was waiting for her.

She loved to bake all kind of cookies and she still does, clever girl she is.

Year have past and she is no longer a little girl anymore. She is now the most beautiful young lady I know, I am so proud of her, my daugther.

Here we are, my daugther and me.

Happy birthday my girl, mamma loves you <3
The best wishes for the new year.

Until next time,

Some finnishing, knitting and sewing

First I have to apology to all of you for taking so long time to make this post, sorry.

I have knitted another wintercap and a pair od christmas socks.

When I should knitt the socks I didn´t have needels big enough so I asked my mum if she could get me some when she was in town. And she did, Look at these cool needles with glitter insisde!!

I also made some Christmas bowl. It is from a norwegian book,
Julekuler with Arne og Carlos.
Love that book.

I did get time to finnished this quilt just some days before Christmas. The pattern is Joy to the World from art to heart. Love this one too.

From my beautiful friend in USA I got this lovely ornament in a Christmas gift. There was a little empty place left on the three after the boys was finnished with the decoration.
Thank you Kathy <3

This year we have not have the realy cold weather yet, but a week before Christmas there was a little snow. This beautiful little boy came running into the kitchen and told me to come out and se the nice snowman he made.

Not much snow, but just enough...

Lovely isn´t it?

Some quilting and autumn days

I found this kind off mosaics interesting so I tryed to make one myself. I don´t know where I loost it, but somehow I did not know how to finished it, so this is what I came up with.

Practise on FMQ, I think it is not that bad to be first time.

Another project with a lot of application

It is - Joy to the world, from Art to Heart

and where else should I find the small pieces of fabrics that I need, in my scraps

Now I have to sew around every little piece of fabrics. it is just to get started :-)

In such a nice weather is it nice to take a little walk in the autumn sun. Can´t stay inside sewing all day long

autumn collors


fun playing

A beautiful ending of a beautiful day

Until next time, Elisabeth
