Summer is coming...

...and summer means lots of houses for sale, which again means a lot to do at work. And sadly that means less time for quilting.

We don`t have any close up neighbours here, so I don`t have curtains in all of the windows. However, I finally decided that I had to do something in the living room, as the sun makes it impossible to watch TV. Being a shabby girl, I didn`t want to buy lift curtains, so I made them from a old restaurant table cloth. It worked really well! No sun is getting through :)

I hade some leftover scraps from the table cloth, and I am thinking of making a table runner or something.

The fabric is really thick, so I had to improvise the pattern myself.

I use the lovely Cosmo embroidery thread. What this project will result in I don`t know, but I`m thinking of making different stichery motifs and put it all together.

One evening as I walked pass my window I stopped and gazed at this beautiful sunset. Too bad my camera can`t reproduce the real thing, it was breathtaking.

Have fun sewing!

  1. Ta vare på den sytiden du får, det kommer alltid bedre dager, høsten er her før vi vet ordet av det. Ha en fin uke;)

  2. Hi Siv,
    Thanks for sharing that beautiful sunset with the rest of us. I have been to Norway twice-once on a longish visit - and the second time on my way to Svaalbaard.
    I was amazed at the wonderful CLEAN scenery where we have dust and more dust in South Africa.
