Easter is here and it is nice to have some quiet days – well – maybe not so quiet, but fun and revitalizing sewing with friends.
The quilt from the previous post is done, but I have not taken a good photo of it yet.
I love how it turned out!
Lately I have spent quite a lot of time baking different kinds of bread.
The wholegrain braided bread with sunflower seeds and grated cheese is one of my favourites so far, as it tastes good, keeps well and freezes well.
I love to find my own bread recipes – the daily bread is an important part of the nutrition – I do like to experiment with different ingredients. Grated carrots and grated cheese combined is a winner too.
Saturday through Monday I was spending time with a group of friends sewing all day.
Saturday I finished this 1600’’ top from my yellow scraps for a charity quilt.
Someone else with find a backing and do the machine quilting.
Making charity quilts is a win win situation – I get to find good fabrics in my boxes, have the pleasure of sorting and cutting and sewing, and someone will in the end be warmed by the quilt.
I am sure I am not the only quilter buying more than I can use for myself ??
Well – I am not buying that much anymore – or at least I try not to buy for storage – I like to buy for using right away, and I am not saving the good stuff! :-)
These lovely fabrics I just bought at my local store Trådsnella instead of buying Easter sweets for myself :-)
I am very much in hand piecing mood these days – it is so relaxing, so I have kick started an Ufo from a class with Sue Daley.
I hope to finish the table runner through the Easter holiday.
As you can see from the top photo, I have different hand projects on the go, and after the charity quilt I was working on the different projects through the weekend :-)
True to the very best Easter tradition ever, I arrived at May Britt’s house yesterday and we had a lovely late lunch with Sunshine Buns.
Even if Easter is late this year, it is quite cold outdoors, so we have spent most of the time indoors.
We had a Sunshine Bun outdoors today, with a little bit of hand work on the side, but it soon was to cold to sit there, even with thick coats and quilts over our knees.
Wishing you a Happy Easter !
