FNwF

My Friday Night with Friends I spent with Cheryll and a Lot of cyber friends! Thank you Cheryll for organising us all!
My Peipponen shawl was blocked and ready and the next one is ready to be blocked!
And tonight I started a new pouch for a friend before I went for a great party at my neighbors. They are Germans celebrating having a summer house in Sweden for 25 years!

Let's Book It - July 2015

I've been away for a couple of days, visiting a friend who has moved away. Of course I had to sew something for her and her new home!
This is what I came up with
a tablerunner in her favorite colour! The pattern I found in this book - Sy med lappar.

In the book it's a pattern for a cushion but I made it a bit bigger, and from the scraps I made some mugrugs to go with the runner.
















Today I'm linking to Vroomans Quilts and 
her Let's Book It challenge.
It feels so good to use some of all the books I have!

FNwF

Friday night I spent with cyber friends. I made two blocks for Liz, my swap partner for July in the QBSA, but I can't upload them so you won't see them today. Thank you Cheryll for organising us all even if you were out of town! You can see what everyone else was doing if you go HERE!

Instead there is this Zebra which I think turned out great!
It's a pattern I've been testing for Juliet @ Tartankiwi and I must say that I love it! I think I'll make a cushion out of it. If you're interested in the pattern you can find it HERE!

Today I'm linking to Bambisyr because it's Monday!

My DS2

It's been quite a while since I last wrote a post on the blog, so I don't really know where to start.
So tonight the only thing I'll show you is photos of my youngest, DS2. It's one from his prom night and on from his graduation day.
                                                          Aren't they sweet!

                                      Congrats Isac, I'm a very proud Mum!

Friday Night with Friends and the rest of the weekend

Friday night I joined Cheryll in FNwF. Thank you Cheryll for hosting! To see what everyone else was doing, go HERE.
Over the weekend I've been making another small pouch made out of a block I've got in a swap in the QBSA.
The rest of the weekend I've been stitching on bindings, hanging sleeves and labels on two quilts.
They are ready for the yearly quilt show next weekend
I hope you can come for a visit and perhaps get a lottery ticket and win that gorgeous quilt in the picture. To read more about it , go HERE.

Maja's challenge!

Today is the day to reveal what I made with the fabric I got from Maja.
I combined the multi coloured fabric with a red and a black one.

It was very hard to decide what to make with it, it's not the usual kind of fabric I choose. So it took some time, it wasn't until I got this pattern from Kerry in Australia I suddenly knew what to make from it.
It's a free tutorial from Mad Quilter and is called the Jewel bag.
 I think it turned out great! It's got an odd shape that I like. I usually don't  wear bags a lot but I think this will be a keeper this summer!
Thank you so much Maja for letting me be a part in this challenge, it's been great fun!!

I can't show very much of the challenge I'm working on, but today I finished my May blocks in the Nature's Journey SAL.
And I have made two more Snenessar, pattern by Anette could be found HERE.

Partytime!

This weekend I will be partying with Chooky when she celebrates her Chookshed's 3rd birthday! And I really need a party to cheer me up after having had both sinusitis and inflammation in the ears. So after having no energy for anything I have a lot to do this weekend!
First up is this fabric I got in a challenge from Maja.
The challenge is to sew anything I want and I can use as many more fabrics I want. I can tell you, it's really been a challenge to come up with an idea to what to sew. But this week I got a pattern from Kerry in Australia in a swap and it will be perfect for this I think. It will all be revealed on June 5th, so you'll have to wait till then to see the result.
I also have to put a flange and binding on two quilts I will show at the yearly exhibition at Sprätthönsen. More about that later.

Now to prepare for the party, chill some bubbles, prepare an easy to do dinner and some nibbles!
If you want to join in with Chooky in her celebration you can sign up HERE!

FNwF - May

First I have to say a BIG Thank you to Cheryll for hosting us all last night for FNwF! Go and check out what everyone else was making, HERE!
I made this cute little pouch, it's only 9 cm high and all hand sewn.


I found the pattern in this Danish book, Flere patchwork tasker by Lise Szymanski,  I've had for ages. It was fun to make even if it took quite some time!



I will link this to Vroomans quilts for her Let's book it 2015 in May.

Not much of knitting

I don't think I've used my knitting needles very much this winter but I have finished this Twist Again shawl for a friend. I hope she'll enjoy it!
I made a few more repeats in the border and I think it looks nice.

And tomorrow is FNwF hosted by the lovely Cheryll! Go and sign up HERE!

April SAL

My blocks for April in the Stitch-A-Long is done and Chooky doesn't have to crack the whip for me, but I can almost hear it in the background.
And I don't think I've shown you the blocks for March, here they are.
It feels so good to be on track with this Nature's Journey by Anni Downs.

A bit of this and that!

It's already a month since my retreat in Fegen with Sprätthönsen!
As always I had a wonderful weekend without any cooking just sewing all day long! I worked on my Mystery quilt I started last year and it's now with the quilter.
Åsa had finished hers and it looks completely different in her choice of colours.
I'm already longing for the next time, in October.

~~~~~

I needed a threadcatcher and found a tutorial at Fiona's blog, all nice and easy until it was finished and I couldn't understand why it looked like it did!!
I'm a terrible pattern reader, I had made an octagon instead of an hexagon. Well it turned out alright anyway!

~~~~~

My DD had a birthday so I made her a bucket with the fabric that remained after I had made her the cushions for Christmas.

Don't forget about FNSI coming up this Friday! You can sign up for it HERE!
