spring fling round robin

Here is the center I made for this. I love how it came out.

Now just have to wait till the next round will arrive. I like the most of this rr as you don't know how it will look like as there is a good oppertunity you won't be working on your own quilt at all. When I see all the quilts I will be working on I am sure almost I won't see anything back.

Fabrics for the spring fling rr and the bag exchange

I just went to a quiltshop not so far from here. Well when you haven't shopped for so long you are superhappy when you finally can do that again. The first fabrics are for thespring fling round robin for the center. I have an idea what to do and I hope the owner that will receive it in the end will like it.
The other fabrics are for the bag/bucket swap and well the light fabric looks totally different in real life. You will see what kind of bag it will be when finished. There will be some piecing in it and some pockets.
Stitching is not happening a lot. I am in the curtains again on LRRH and they are not going fast at all. It could be that I will be stitching something in between another design.

A knit top

Now I finally can walk again I just had to sit behind the sewing machine and well I used a fabric from my stash and one of the newly bought patterns. I decided on simplicity 3768. The knot was a bit difficult, but I am happy with how it turned out. I will make it again, but than I will make the neckline a little higher.

Little red riding hood and fabrics

I have been busily stitching on LRRH. Here is a pic of not the total piece as I am just to tired to spread it. I have now finished 20 pages.

Today my new sewing fabrics came in. The ecru fabric will be a skirt and the rest will be tunics. Hope to have some time

in the next days to start sewing, but it depends on how I feel.

Need help

I need some help for my mother. She will be joining my brother on a business trip and wants to know if there are any quiltshops in or close to Helsingborg in Zweden, also they will be in Helsingjog in Denmark. I hope I type both places right.
Good news, I can make little steps without my crutches as long as it is no more than 10 steps.
Also I finished page 20 of LRRH, pic will come later.

Great mail day

Today my DH went to the postoffice to collect a package for me from and well I ordered some nice ones.
First Simplicity 4277. I have to say I like all the tunics very much. I am also sure I probaly will make a few of them. Just have to see which fabrics I will be using. From simplicity 2948 B, C and E very much. All have a very good chance to get used.
From simplicity 3697 I only don't like the sleeves on A, but the rest of them I really love.
Well from simplicity 3699 I like the V-neck very much, the round neck I am not sure of.
I am a big fan of A, B, E and F. The first top is not really my thing and the skirt I am not totally sure of.
From simplicity 4164 I like all the tunics, but D will get other sleeves that is sure.

I hope to show some sewing in a week or two. I have some fabrics that maybe work for these or when I can drive a car again I will go shopping for fabrics.

I am walking again

Well not really walking as I still need my crutches to walk, but it is going better and better. Yesterday they have removed all the iron in my leg and they had great problems with the local anaesthesia. They could anaesthetise my skin not well and so I first felt the cut in my skin and when she was finished I also felt every stitch she made in my skin and boy that was painfull. Also removing the plate was very painfull. But well I survived. I now can start walking again and I hope next week I can do the shopping again myself.
Well stitching and quilting, mmm I am busy stitching on Little red riding hood and this page is going very slow. I think I am now 2/3 on this page. Quilting I haven't done in a week or more, but is on my agenda this week/weekend. Hope to sandwich the hexagonquilt this week and start the quilting. I have bought fabrics last week at the fattquartershop and yesterday came in the first envelope. It were the charmpacks of winter from moda and two tinme1,5 yard of two of the fabrics. A jellyroll of winter is still on it's way and I also bought a christmas fabric jellyroll from moda, just can't remember how the line is called. Than this week I bought a few sewing patterns for cloths from Simplicity and Butternik.

Life is busy

The past weeks were very busy with work and also at home there was a lot to do. So that is why I have been silent. Now I just want to show my progress on Little red riding hood. I have finished page 19 now and am busy with 20. Both are difficult pages with a lot of color change. Do you see that the wolf really is growing. I love it every page a little bit more.
