My latest completed projects

Time to think about Christmas Gifts. This is some of the things I've made for somebody for Christmas. The Sofa Caddy is made from Helens pattern (Hugs'n Kisses). You can find a tutorial at my sidebar for how to make the hearts. I love the smell from the cinnamon stick on the hearts. Reminds me of making Christmas cookies.

Stay in touch. There will be a give-away in November.

Pink October, new bag and Quiltshow

Look at my new bag. I bought it at Meretes blog to support Pink October. I love the bag the money goes to an absolutly good cause.

This comming week end our local group, Lillesand og Grimstad Lappeklubb, is having a Quilt show. 15 years since we started our group. I have made a few more things for sale but need to put in a few more stitches before taking photos.

It's a bit odd to invite you visiters from all over the world, but I really wish you could come.

Ugly Mug Award

In previous post about reveiving and passing on this award I forgot the picture of my mug. However, this is not my ugly mug, but my favorite mug. It is a Freia chocolate collector mug # 5 from Porsgrund Porselænesfabrikk. I use it for coffee and have chocolate to go with it. :-)

The award was presented to me from Marlene at Sipiweske Quilt. She had received this award from Megan of The Bitchy Stitcher blog.

I am so frustrated and mad! I can not send e-mail just receive. I have lots of nice comments left on my blog that I would like to answer, but I can not get them to leave my outbox! However I have gotten words that some are going through - up to ten times!!! Still the same e-mail is left in my outbox. I can not close my e-mail connection untill I have deleted all e-mails from outbox. Grrrrrrr!! Computering is fun - - when it works !!

My e-mail provider is in big trouble if my e-mail does not work soon!!

I apologize to all of you visiting and leaving comments.

New glasses

I normally wear contactlenses to correct my bad eyesight. Being past 50 it's not enough anymore. Yesterday I picked up my new reading/ working glasses that I have to use in addition to contactlenses. It's not easy to take a photo of my self!! How did this go??

Grrr, I look awefull!! New attempt.

Is this my best side??

Or this?? As you can see, not at my best. But my glasses looks nice and work as they should!
Today I received my custom made tags. I love them. Now I'm looking forward to work on gifts and things for Christmas. May be some patterns too.

Take care.
