This and that

P1060850

Since I have not been very blog active for a while, I have some catching up to do.

This Tilda Christmas stocking is done - remember I blogged the kit a few weeks back ?
It will be a gift for a cute little girl in our family, the daughter of our niece. She just turned 2 years.

Remember these strip blocks?

The 6" blocks (finish size) are now a finished top for a future care quilt.
I guess it will not be done before after Christmas. I have to piece the backing too.

After about 25 years of quilting I finally have a sewing room with all my fabrics, books, patterns and other quilt related things in it!
Nearly all my quilt related things I might say, as the sewing corner in the living room will still live - it is the very best place to sew in this house!
But - I finally have got the big overview of all my things - I do not think I Need to buy much for a long time!

I can see a lot of care quilts coming on over the next year.
The 2 fabric / book cupboards got moved last week and it is very visible if I use from them. Right now the older fabrics are stored there - a lot of bright colours from the Debbie Mumm era.

It is good it is the end of the year, sort of, a good time to make a fresh start and with some photos it it easy to record improvements through 2011.
If you wonder where those 2 cupboards were before, I can tell you that the master bedroom now is a bedroom only, not doubling as a quilt storage room. DH is happy!

Ååå så deilig å innrede sitt eget syronm! Kos deg masse!!!!

For eit hyggeleg innlegg! Kan godt forstå at hubby er happy no. Er det gjesterommet du har innreda så fint?
Håpar du har det bra. Hos oss er det kuldeperiode, men så lenge ein har ved, elektrisitet og rennande vatn går det fint!

Kjempekoseligjulestrømpe:o)

Skjønner godt at kjæresten var fornøyd med å få ryddet soverommet, så mye koseligere. Flott med eget syrom, etter 25 år har du jammen fortjent dette :o))
Ha en riktig fin helg.
