North Pole QAL - May

I'm way behind schedule for this quilt along, but I guess there will be more Christmas's after the next one.
So I guess I will get there eventually, even if it won't be soon.
This is how much I've done on my third block. The background fabric makes me think about snow storms, I kind of like that.

Better than nothing, right!

FNSI - May

I signed up for the Friday Night Sew In over at Heidis!

This is what I was working on, it has to be finished next Sunday because then we celebrate Mother's day over here! So I wonder who 's gonna get it, and  I'm going away on a roadtrip to Denmark for a couple of days so I don't have much time to work on it.







After a while I ended up on the couch with a knitting as usual!


It won't be long before I have had 25.000 visitors here on my blog, so perhaps I need to get my thinking cap on and figure out what I could give away to one of you. I'll get back with that so please pop in soon again!

More fabric?

After a meeting at my LQS I came home with these goodies!
 As if I need more fabric!
All I intended to buy when going there was the three in the top right corner. They are for a secret project.
But then some new fabric had come in. And as I love birds and chooks of all kind, I couldn't resist.

QR-code

You know - this is my blog!
I got interested when reading about it over at Jane Gardner's.
It took me to this site, in swedish but I'm sure you could find one in english, Skapa QR-kod. So easy - you just write what you want to say and press a button and it turns to a QR-code!
I do have a QR-reader on my phone but haven't used it many times, perhaps it will change now.
I don't know what to use it for, but it is fun!

Winning!


I won a Give away over at Quilting Chemist when she was celebrating her 100th post.

Yesterday I had a squishy mail with my prize in it!

Look at all those lovely fabrics! She had also included a beautiful mini charm pack.

Thank you so very much Danette!

The kit is called Spring is coming and will look like this when finished.

Friday Night with Friends - May

I didn't get as much time at my sewing machine as I had planned, and I "blame" it all on the SUN.
If you've read here before I'm longing for the sun almost all the time. And after this winter I really do. For the last couple of weeks we've actually have had quite much sun but there's also been a strong and cold wind so it hasn't been very pleasant outside.
But on friday it was! No wind and actually quite warm, so I sat outside quite late crocheting.
Later in the evening I did finish a bag for a friend's birthday.
It looks as if they are a theme for me right now because it's the third I've done so far.
Here is the second for another friend.
I've also finished the second pair of socks in the same yarn as before, but they don't look quite the same as the previous pair.


And I have to show you a spectacular sunset from last week.
