Focus and more

Easter holidays have started. For my part I think I’ll spend a lot of time in my sewing room. The weather is not nice. A lot of rain, about 5+ C and quit windy. The good thing is that the rest of the snow is going with the rain.

I’m set with new magazines, books and projects. After all the work with my new patterns I’m definitely ready for a less brain consuming project.

Earlier this week I started making blocks for a Queen Size quilt for DS1 and DIL. They are traveling Japan right now, so I decided to make a quilt from Japanese fabrics. I went for two different 12 inch blocks in soft colors. Now I’m looking for Japanese calligraphy signs to appliqué on. I’m looking for simple words like love, laughter, peace, sun, moon, earth, fire, water and so on. I also want to practice my turn under appliqué. Since I was inn to Japanese fabrics already I designed a ”lovely basket” to practice on. ;-) I’m on track again with this weeks focus, you see.

Happy Easter Holidays.

Den boken så kjempefin ut, kan tenke meg du gleder deg til å kose deg med den:o)
Men jeg må bare spørre om en ting - hvem er DS1 og DIL, kan det være sønn og svigerdatter? Har ikke sett de forkortelsene før.....
Ha en herlig påske :o)
