New additions to the library

All though I haven`t been blogging much lately, I have been adding new books and magazines to my quilting library.

Which by the way cries for a new bookshelf!

Lovely books if I some day want to test my sewing skills and patience :)

This Norwegian book has the cutest little stitcheries. I must make something from this one, I may even start tomorrow.

Presenting the finished top for my Gardner quilt. I plan to ship it off to a proffesional for the basting (but have made too many purchases lately and must wait for next salary), and I plan to hand quilt it. Max is looking forward to curl up in a brand new quilt. Sorry puppy, this one is mums!

Have fun sewing!

I got this award from Zew Nice today. It is always nice to get awards, so thank you!! I have to pass on the award to bloggers that has less than 100 followers, so here we go;

Rag, Tags and Bobtail
Grandma`s Red Needle
Bears Patch
Britts Hobbygleder
Annes Quilteri

The next step is to answes the following questions;

1. Why did I start blogging?

When I finally found the world of quiltblogs (I am a bit slow), reading other blogs became a huge inspiration to me. The three blogs that by far got me going was Leannes House, Abyquilt and Hannes Quilt Corner.

2. Which blogs do you follow?

Mostly quiltblogs, but also interior blogs. I like shabby chic! My house is decorated in that style, allthough I fear that it is more shabby than chic......

3. My favourite movie?

Any Jane Austen film will do!

4. My favourite color?

I do find myself getting more "pinkish" as I get older, which is funny since I hated that color before.

5. Which country would I like to visit and why?

My dream is to go to the USA, to visit the Amish communities and "go banana" at the Houston Quilt Festival!!!

Have fun sewing!
