What I'm working on ...

The clock is ticing faster and faster. At least is feels like it. Allready two weeks since my last blog. MIL is not doing any better and we travle back and forth to be with her. She is still in the hospital on 6th week. I find it hard to consentrate on sewing and blogging.

However, I have made some progress in the line of sewing. I have finished stitchery and put together Noah's Ark BOM from Lynette Anderssons blog. I feel like the work looks a bit unfinished and have desided to put on two set of borders before quilting and binding. One inner border in beige (I think) and an outer border in red (or perhaps blue?) Oh, many choices to be made. I'll post a new photo when I have added borders.

I've started a new project. This is some flower blocks from a book by Buggy Barn. They have a special way to stack, cut and sew their blocks. It is fun to make this blocks. I have made 12 in white and blue for a tablecloth to match my new rug in my kitchen.
Have a look at my new play mate in my sewing room. I love this Pfaff. It have all Pfaff's specialitys as well as the special lift sensores my Husqvarna Designer 1 have. My new sweetheart!!

Tomorrow is a new day. Thank God it's Friday!!
Take care.
Hugs from Nancy

Nancy, your new machine is wonderful--I'm a little jealous :-) So you have a Husqvarna Viking too. I looked at both of them but was going more towards a Husqvarna. I'll have to give Pfaff another test run.
Your Noah's Ark is pefect. I had such trouble because my blocks were not the right size.
I hope all improves for your MIL.

So, which machine do you prefer? I have a Pfaff and am very happy with it, even though I have been thinking of a Husqvarna.
Your Noah Ark - perfect!
Have a lovely week.
