A nice start of the week.

I have been away for the whole weekend. It was quite late last night when I was back home and was a little bit tired today when I went to my place of work. But there was a great surprise waiting for me. A colleague had visited Iceland and gave me these beautiful fabrics. A very nice start of the week :-) Now I have to figure out what to make. Have a creative week!

Last night I finished a couple of gifts -sorry, no photos yet - and I made progress on the quilt you see below. All Log Cabin blocks are sewn together, next step is the borders. We have a beautiful autumn day here, so I'll take a long walk. Hopefully I can continue on the quilt later today.
Have a nice Saturday!

Friday Night Sew-In .... again

The weeks fly. Tonight it's Friday Night Sew-In again - is it really a month since last time?
Now I'm ready to spend some hours in the sewing room. I want to make progress on some secrets and my daughter's quilt. May be I'll start on something new too.
Have a creative evening!

A packet from USA

Today I received the prize I won in connection with last month's Friday Night Sew-In. I'm now the happy owner of a special pincushion designed for the FNSI winners - and a charmpack -"Awesome". The fabrics are lovely; my favourite colours. Do you think I'm lucky :-) ? Thank you very much HeidiOn Friday there will be another Friday Night Sew-In. Be sure I'll sign up once again.

No problem ......

to fill the spare time for the next weeks. I have some gifts to make. Three girls are patiently waiting for their PIF gift. I'll also make something for my partners in the FRIENDS swap and SSCS swap.
May be I'll use some of these fabrics - or may be not. I won't tell you; it's a secret :-)

Happy Quilting!

Some of the trees have got some yellow leaves. The first snow is on the highest tops, and the temperatures are quite low. There's no doubt; the summer is over. A little bit sad, but on the other hand autumn is a good time for handicrafts. In the dark evenings it's cosy to listen to music or a talking book when you are stitching or knitting.
This weekend I'm working on UFOs/WISPs together with some friends. We are not at the same place - we have contact via Internett. It's very nice. Yesterday I finished two make-up bags. It seems that I never get tired of this pattern from AnnAKa- I don't know how many I have made during the last years. I'm sure these will not be the last ones. Now I will work on the Log Cabin top.
Have a nice Sunday!

I'm smiling......

because I have been lucky. It's not often I win, but during the last couple of weeks I have won twice ;-))
After Friday Night Sew-In - hosted by Heidi and Bobbi -I was one of the lucky ones.
Last night I became aware of that I also was one of last month's OPAM winners.
I'm sure there soon will be exciting mail in my letter box both from USA and Australia.
Thank you in advance!
