A busy week, daily threads, and an Ufo finish

2015-10-07 21.13.57

Really taking to heart how many hours of work that are hiding in my Ufo-boxes,
I dug out the Cornelian quilt blocks, and have done daily threads on the 2 remaining stitchery blocks as my daily thread(s) this week.
Daily threads do pay off, and now all the stitcheries are done.

Through the process I have decided I will alter the finished quilt a bit, and I therefore can now say I am done with all the stitcheries.

As much as I love blue, it will still be nice to put the blue DMC floss away for a while ;-)

I have been working on this quilt for 2 years, and I am now aware of what stopped it in its track:
The finished quilt is to massive for my taste - not to big - just to massive, and I am doing something about it!

I have dug out one more project to move forward by daily threads:

These Crewel work napkin rings looks so good.
They are very slow work, but I would like them finished in time for Christmas!
I think I can do it :-)

One has to have some starts too, right ?
The red table topper / candle mat is badly sun faded, and I would like a new one in time for advent.
In fact, I would like to make more than 1, but I am doing 1 at a time :-)

And finally - A Finish :-)
Dear Husband wanted another Sew Together Bag for his computer bits and bobs.
It was put to the side when it did not meet a travel deadline of his, but now it is done and he is happy!
It is in daily use - it does not get much better than that :-)

the most out of every day

Fantastisk produktiv du er, Hanne! Nydelige stitcherier, og nå må jeg seriost få kjøpt mønsteret til sew together bagen...

Your embroidery is so pretty. I like blues too. Are you coming to the Jane Stickle Retreat in November?

Oh my! I so love those beautiful blue and white blocks. The red napkin holders will be lovely and well worth completing. You have really been busy again. So good to see you stitching. Hope you are keeping well. Angel Hugs.

I am totally in awe of your Cornelian quilt blocks worked in blue. Very classy. I've been eyeing this project for a few years. Like you, I have a few projects 'on the go'.

Your blocks are all beautiful, Hanne. Love the the latest zipper bag, too. They are handy for so many things.
