Not much of knitting

I don't think I've used my knitting needles very much this winter but I have finished this Twist Again shawl for a friend. I hope she'll enjoy it!
I made a few more repeats in the border and I think it looks nice.

And tomorrow is FNwF hosted by the lovely Cheryll! Go and sign up HERE!

April SAL

My blocks for April in the Stitch-A-Long is done and Chooky doesn't have to crack the whip for me, but I can almost hear it in the background.
And I don't think I've shown you the blocks for March, here they are.
It feels so good to be on track with this Nature's Journey by Anni Downs.

A bit of this and that!

It's already a month since my retreat in Fegen with Sprätthönsen!
As always I had a wonderful weekend without any cooking just sewing all day long! I worked on my Mystery quilt I started last year and it's now with the quilter.
Åsa had finished hers and it looks completely different in her choice of colours.
I'm already longing for the next time, in October.

I needed a threadcatcher and found a tutorial at Fiona's blog, all nice and easy until it was finished and I couldn't understand why it looked like it did!!
I'm a terrible pattern reader, I had made an octagon instead of an hexagon. Well it turned out alright anyway!

~~~~~

My DD had a birthday so I made her a bucket with the fabric that remained after I had made her the cushions for Christmas.

Don't forget about FNSI coming up this Friday! You can sign up for it HERE!

FNwF and Snenesserally

Friday night Cheryll hosted FNwF and I sewed along with a bunch of cyberfriends. Thanks Cheryll for organising us all! Go HERE to see what everyone else was doing.


I was working on the Modern Millie quilt I started when taking a workshop for the talented Diane last Saturday. The quilt is from the book Contemporary Curved Quilts.
This is how the block looks like.
About the Snenesserally: Snenesse is just the name of the bag and the rally is a giveaway going on in Sweden. I won it from Tankar om tyg and now it's my turn to have a giveaway and pick a winner who get these fabrics and the pattern in Swedish, so I'm sorry but this giveaway is only for Swedish peeps.
Make a comment on this post if you'd like to win the fabric and make your own Snenesse, then you have to follow the rules and fill up with fabric and have a giveaway on your own blog. I'll pick a winner on this coming Friday night.

By the way, this is what my Snenesse looks like and these were the fabrics I won.
