More goodies (poor little wallet!)

I promised you I would show you what I bought when Leka and I visited Lille Stasjon, and here it is. Lovely fabrics, pattern and thread.

I haven`t got the clue about what I am going to make of the Japanese fabrics, time will tell.

In between sewing, kids and work I still do a lot of workouts and try to get a progress on my jogging. It is only three weeks to The Big Test - where I will run 3 km in Oslo Marathon! I am not there yet, but with the new program from my coach, I think I will make it :) I have already been in one of the national newspapers, and they plan to do another article after the race.

Have fun sewing!

The last few days a lot of quilting goodies has arrived in my sewing room. I need some vitamin Q after a long summer with very little sewing. I have gone a bit bananas twice this week, leaving my bank account a bit empty. Nothing but flies there now. Last night Quiltefryd came with their shop to our guild, and I spent more money than I had planned. I think you`ll understand when you see what I bought.

The dark roll of fabric contains 25 fat quarters in brown, blue, white and rusty red. The blue and greens are for a "goodbye-dear-colleague"-project I am starting on soon.

Have fun sewing!

Tidy up!

A few days ago me and my friend Leka went on our traditional autumn trip to Lille Stasjon, a wonderful quilt shop. I will show you my purcases later. I bought a smart little plastic boks for some of my embroidery thread.

This is not it. Look at this mess! Like color spaghetti tangled up in eachother. This does not encourage me to sew, just to put the lid back on.

Here you see the result after several hours of labour, so tidy and nice! And a lot more room for new thread. Maybe I will buy some tonight at the first autumn meeting in my guild. Quiltefryd is visiting with their shop, and they are giving a lecture in sewing machine maintenance. I hope to take a lot of pictures so I can show you tomorrow.

Have fun sewing!

Oops I did it again - part two

Yesterday Mr. Pfaff left my sewingroom. It has been a nice year, but we never really hit it on. I know, I am just as bad as those men who are always changing cars, and yesterday I brought home a new cutie.

Meet Daisy!

This one is going to stay with me for a long time, I can feel it! Everytime I have visited my local quiltshop (no blog or homepage) she has blinked her little led eye to me, and whispered: take me home! I am so happy, and look forward to many happy hours of sewing.

Have fun sewing!

I`m back again!

Oh my, it is so long since I`ve posted :( I am ashamed! So what have I been doing these months?


I have been and still work out hard, five times a week, and so far I have lost 17 kg :) My big goal is to lose a total og 45 kg, and soon I am halfway.

I haven`t forgot to sew, and I mostly work on my many WISPs and UFOs. However, I plan to make two new quilts for two of my sons.

Have fun sewing!
