2 år med blogging / 2 years blogging

I morgen er det 2 år siden jeg opprettet denne bloggen. Jeg har ikke vært den aller ivrigste, men det har vært en spennende "reise" som har gitt masse inspirasjon og nye venner. Hyggelige kommentarer gir en lyst til å fortsette. Tusen takk!
I forbindelse med 2-årsdagen ønsker jeg å gi bort et par små gaver - foreløpig er de hemmelige. Ønsker du å være med i trekkinga, må du legge inn en hilsen før tirsdag 6.april. Fortell gjerne om dette til dine venner også :-)

Tomorrow I celebrate 2 years blogging. It has been an exciting "journey" which has given me a lot of inspiration and many new friends. Nice comments encourage me to continue the blogging. Thank you so much for all the nice words!
In connection with the blog anniversary, I will have a give-away. 2 years; 2 gifts ( secret for now ) If you want to be in the drawing, you have to say hello before Tuesday April 6th. Please tell your friends about it too. The more, the merrier :-)

Happy Quilting!

Thursday News

I have made some progress on the star quilt. All stars are sewn up, but I need to find fabrics for the binding. This is a scrappy quilt - I have only used fabrics from my stash. I hope to do the same for the binding. The pattern is Bonnie Hunter's "Smokey Mountain Star" Finally I have finished a Christmas wallhanging that I started in October when I joined a class with Leanne Beasley and Gail Pan. This is Gail Pan's design. The cover seat is also done. It's already on my youngest daughter's chair.

It has been a lovely day - sunshine and skiing. In the evening I think knitting will be perfect while watching TV.

So far ..

I made progress in making blocks last night. The next step is to put them together. Hopefully I can manage to do that during the coming week. It was fun to join the Friday Night Sew-in party, and I'll visit the participants' blogs to see what you all have done. Thanks to the hostesses!

A start

Friday Night Sew-in party has started here. Some time ago I wanted to reduce the pile of scraps by making a quilt with Smokey Mountain Stars. So tonight I will cut more squares and sew blocks for that quilt. I look forward to see what everyone are doing. Happy quilting!

Friday Night Sew-in

If you haven't anything else to do on March 19th, you can join the "Friday Night Sew-in" hosted by Heidi and Bobbi. I'm sure it will be fun.
For more information, visit their blogs.

Table mats finished

We are already in the middle of March - the days just fly away. There hasn't been much time for handicrafts - or blogging -recently, but yesterday I finally finished the table mats. I had in mind to make some progess on a UFO, but my youngest daughter asked me to make a seat cover, so I think I better do that first.
Have a creative week!

A new month and one finish

The calender shows March 1st, and the table runner I started on Saturday is finished. Thanks to Kelly and Joan who hosted the Sewing Spring Party. It was fun participating.

Happy quilting!
