A bit of everything.....

Yesterday I ordered the latest book from Amy Butler: Midwest Modern.

I loved her previous book, In Stitches - I haven't gotten around to sew anything from it yet, but I read in it all the time... The pictures and colours are spirit lifters, and these days I really need that.



Early last month I took on a commision to sew four curtains and two Roman Blinds, boy do I regret this..... Then again, as the stubborn gal I am, I threw myself at the task today, not knowing where it will take me.... Emotionally I'm a wreck...

Do you remember how it was when doing your homework was somthing you really didn't want to do...... and then you used all your time to avoid it... or worse, doing it sloppy and having to do it all over again??? That's my state of mind.... I keep hoping my state will improve.....

Allright, enough with the whining.....



For the newest member of our family, I've made a vintage-teddy blanket. Her name is Pernille, she is my husband's niece, and was born in August.


I still have the batting and binding to do, but I wanted to show it to you now...

The teddy's faces are hand stitched... The pattern is from the book "Applikasjoner" by Tove Fevang






A week ago I found this tutorial for a different way to use a ninepatch...
This will be my next project, hopefully I can start sewing very soon, just have to overcome the curtains..... I have picked out the fabric though.....



I'm off to the curtain sewing, wishing you all a wonderful weekend.... See you at the other end....

  4. Måten du beskriver det å utsette ting man ikke har lyst å gjøre er bare såååå bra! Kjenner meg så godt igjen... Men, som du sier, like godt å komme igang med det, først som sist, istedet for å utsette det man alikevel "må" (eller har lovet å gjøre...) Men, jeg skjønner deg veldig godt, for gardinsøm (og spesielt liftgardin) er ikke det morsomste jeg vet.

    Bamseteppet du har sydd var til gjengjeld bare nydelig, og sikker morsom å lage. Koselig med like prosjekter.
