A girl got to do what a girl got to do……. :-)

dresden 1Sometimes me and my body are not in the same game……..
I know that is to be expected with you come delivered as a heap of 2nd sorting parts.

A lot has been on the back burner lately, but luckily it is getting better now, at last!
I am happy you are dropping by to see what is going on in my sewing corner :-)

The Dresden flower quilt is back from the quilter, and it is beautifully quilted by Merete at www.sy.no 
Remember the flowers from last summer, when I had them on display on my walker?

I have not got the binding on yet, but I will shortly, and it will be the striped fabric you can see on the photo above.

P1050377Dresden-flower-mania has been going on in the sewing corner and it is so fun :-)
If you notice the black leather couch is out of here, you are so right!
The new couch set is a lovely grey, from Ikea. I do need new cushions now, right?

I am longing for spring and to celebrate spring getting closer I have also made some flowers in soft yellow. I made these when visiting with May Britt lately - we had a great weekend :-)

Several fabrics were tried for the centre circle - the  Civil War repro double pink won!

Miss Cat just wanted to say hello as well.
I wish she was good at house keeping in the sewing corner too - I am a mess there when I do not sew so much ;-)
I think she likes the smell of the cardboard boxes where I keep my sewing thread.

Happiness resides not in possessions, and not in gold,
happiness dwells in the soul.

Your Dresden Plate quilt is lovely and so are the yellow blocks. Another quilt in yellow?

Mary said...

I love the Dresden blocks - I've got one I'm doing some hand embroidery on but haven't decided yet whether I'll make enough for a quilt.

May Britt said...

Jeg forstår at du sliter med helsa, og kan bare ønske deg god bedring, hva det nå enn er som plager deg!
Teppene som blir til i syhjørnet ditt, er bare helt fantastiske! DP-blokkene er kjempesøte.

Hei Hanne.
Teppet ditt er veldig vakkert. Flott arbeid av både deg og av Merethe. Vi er vel flere her i kalde nord som lengter mot våren nå:o)

Så flott teppet ditt ble. Dresdenplatene er utrolig flotte. Hexagontoppen min er på vei til Merete nå. Gleder meg til det kommer tilbake. Ha en super dag.

Lovely Dresden plate projects, Hanne. Good that your back is better now! And always nice to see what Miss Cat is doing ;o)

Sigrun said...

Kjempeflott teppe Hanne!
Og quiltingen er jo bare råflott. Virkelig et flott teppe å eie. jeg ser fram til å se hva du lager av det gule.
Tror nesten jeg blir nødt til å prøve ut dette, for det var et skikkelig inspirende innlegg med så mye forskjellig.

Solveig said...

Det teppet der ble bare nyyyydelig!!! Gratulerer. Spennende det du holder på med også. ;o) Ha en fin dag

Pat said...

Love your quilt Hanne!

Anne Marieke said...

Your Dresden plate quilt is beautiful, Hanne. I love the colours and the quilting really is very beautiful.

Miss Cat knows where to find the good places to sleep. Isn't it funny how they have their favourite places to sleep on, and often they don't seem very comfy to us.

Jenni said...

How does Miss Cat roll into that upside-down ball? Your Dresdens are lovely and how funny that you want summer to come and I look forward to winter!

The green sashings look so good with the feathery quilting design.
