Work in slow progress

February has been a month with few finishes. I have  been working on a secret project for a long time . When I'm concentrating on one project I don't dare to start a new one. I have just made a few blocks  for my quilting club's jubilee quilt , and have had a reorganising  in my fabric cupboards.
I have put all my newest( What I have bought the last two-three years)  fabrics where I can see them, and put my old fabric  in a far away cupboard. I have got so many new projects in my head by just looking at the new ones, so I'll have plenty of work to start on now.
Hope you have a lot of project ideas too!

Happy New Year!

Another year has passed and we have all turned a  year older and wiser ? We sit down and think about our promises for a new year , and try not to make them too many and too big.
I have made myself a few ones, and I hope I’ll manage to keep them.
First of all I will ty to make use of what fabrics  I have in my cupboards and drawers in  2017 , and try to use patterns  I’ve bought and stocked too, if I still like them. Borders and backings  I am allowed to buy. If I could manage to shrink my fabric into just one cupboard during 2017 I’ll  be more than happy.
But the most important promise for 2017 is to have more fun with my sewing and quilting. I won’t make lists of all my want to do, but take one at a time and finish. And when I have finished one , I ask myself what do I want to do now instead of checking out my list of UFOs( not many left) , or planned projects.

At the moment I’m challenging myself with a competition quilt, and I  often wonder if this was a good idea and want to quit, but  a started project is a finished project…………
Have a nice week!

Another three years’ project finished!

My one and only granddaughter was three years this month, and I’ve finished the quilt I started when I got to know she was on her way. Grandmothers flowers in yellow and pink and quilted with hearts and flowers by Merete Ellingsen at sy.no.

All my projects at this time seem to take a lot of time, and there are few finishes. But I ‘m happy they get finished, and that I manage to finish some of them before I get lost in new ones.
