I am so excited!
You might have noticed that not many things have been happening on the blog and this is one of the reasons why. I am also going to be in Irish Quilting Magazine soon and it was to early to write about this. I am also working on a whole new website and ofcourse a new fall season with classes that have been prepared. Other than that I have gotten a new job: I am now the sales representative in Sweden for Anbo Textiles UK, we sell Windham fabrics, Marcus Brothers, Anna Griffin, Sevenberry and more.
I had a wonderful weekend. Weronica was here and we planned to sew the whole Saturday. Saturday night we decided we would even meet Sunday. So I had a whole weekend of sewing.
I finished my quilt. I made hexagons on the machine and it was a lot of fun and it went fast! I will be having a class to teach the technique as well. You can read about it here. It will also be in the quilt exibition on the 27th of August at my open house in Surahammars, Folkets Hus.
Molly had a good time too watching us. Weronica finished her Bargello Quilt and Molly just loved the colors of it.
I hope whe will want to have a sew weekend next weekend as well!
I am a bit behind in my blogging ...so here is a post with a bit of everything...
Here are some more pictures of the fair:
I was sewing on a hexagon quilt. So I had these small scrapbags as starter-kits for people..

Well and ofcourse there is Molly is growing and loves her food. This is a picture of here the first time in her high-chair...and loving it because you can look outside the window when your are that high:
I would love to swap small 2 by 2 inch pieces of fabric with you for my thimble quilt. Send me an email at: firstname.lastname@example.org to get my homeaddress and send me an envelope with pieces of fabric in beige/white brown or pink. I would love it to have a print I can cut out. I will send you back the same number of fabrics and the small template to make your own thimble quilt. I will send you fabrics in the color that you would like (please note I don't have batiks, purples, novelty fabrics etc. please look at my blog and at my quilts to get an idea of what kind of fabrics I have) Let me know if you would like to swap...
Vind je het leuk om lapjes met me te ruilen? Ik wil graag lapjes ruilen die 2x2 inch zijn voor mijn vingerhoedjes quilt. Stuur me een email voor mijn thuisadress en stuur me dan een envelopje met stofjes in roze,bruin en wit. Ik zou graag stofjes willen waar ik een motiefje uit kan knippen zoals de roos hierboven in het voorbeeld. Ik stuur je dan hetzelfde aantal lapjes terug met een malletje voor je eigen quiltje. Ik stuur je graag stofjes toe in de kleurtjes die je leuk vind. Je kunt op de website zien wat ik voor stofjes heb. (ik heb geen fele kleurtje, batiks enz) Stuur me graag een email naar: email@example.com als je wilt ruilen!
I am knitting my sin miedo socks. You can see them here
Today I had my ladies here for the handquilting class. I always teach handquilting and then have another 2 hour class about a month afterwards. I do it that way because it normally is at home that the questions turn up. Some had finished some were still working on their piece.
I had my table dressed up and with some classic Swedish Christmas things like the gingercookies, the Christmas Ham and some glögg and ofcourse the Julmust. Julmust is a drink that has spices in it but is a bit like Cola. We only drink it at Christmas.
We had a great time and it felt like a fun end to the season and before my maternity leave...I have only 2 classes left and then I am on leave...
So I tested to make a video-podcast... it was a lot of fun...I never had so many giggle attacks..*s*..you feel like a complete idiot but after a while it went ok..
The first 20 seconds are grey and I don't know why..but it is normal again after 20 seconds so hold on! I will try to inprove some things like sound and light untill next time..but as said..it is just a test.
Again: The first 20 seconds are grey and I don't know why..but it is normal again after 20 seconds so hold on! I will try to inprove some things like sound and light untill next time..but as said..it is just a test.
I don't know if I ever showed this on the blog before. But I started to make a Dear Jane some years ago and never finished. So now I have been thinking about putting the 61 blocks I have together so that it will make a mini-jane.
I just love all my little blocks and it is such a shame to just have them in a box...right? What do you think?
Oh btw..I have added some new photo albums so you can look at some of the blocks!
