WISPs here I come

Every time I think I have plenty of time to sew and finish projects something happens. This time my sewing machine needed a big repair. I suddenly discovered, should probably have seen it weeks ago, that the angel on my sewing foot was pointing 15 degrees too much to the left side. Probably happened when a needle broke and everything stopped a while ago. I had to send it away, but this time I found my daughters sewing machine in her cupboard and used it.
I finished my Gemstone quilt- Ruby colored, - a BOM from

This is just a part of it.

I finished my summer quilt – hexagons (Grandmother`s) garden that I started summer 2013 when I learned I was to become a grandmother. I had to hand sew the frame around.  Both quilts were delivered yesterday to Merete from yesterday for proper machine quilting.

During my week off I even took my scrap box and cut every scrap into 2 inch strips, 1 inch strips and small tumblers. The 2 inch strips I made into a small quilt for my granddaughter that started to use it once it was finished. The 1 inch strips went into a doubled sided doll quilt.

The tumblers are in a small metal bin on my sewing table ready to go into the sewing machine on a rainy day.

  I`m proud of the empty boxes, and I have decided to keep focus on finishing more WISP boxes. I get back energy and my ideas start to flower again for new projects for every empty box so I Know I`m on right tracks.

Now I have planted a star quilt on my table for the weekend. It will not turn out as the pattern say or as it was planned to be, but that is another story.

Have a nice weekend!
