What I’m working on and update

I have been working on projects even if I have not told you about it. Last couple off weeks I have done therapy work for my self. So much is going on in my family. In Northern part of Norway we have a saying that goes something like this: Never so bad that it not good for something. I don’t know if it makes any sense translated. I have definitely had that saying in mind lately.

My therapy work last week was finishing the Valentine Heart quilt from a free pattern at Stinas site. Mine looks like this.

Valentine Hearts

I have also been working on A Tisket, A Tasket appliqué blocks. This is a 12 part BOM from Bunny Hill. I am currently working on block 5. I am off cause one year late….

I bought a very interesting pattern from Northern Quilt  at our annual Quilt meeting last month.

This is a very funny keeper for a 3 liters wine bag. The pattern is called Miss Svin ( Miss Swine).

Miss Svin's secret

I’ll be off to Northern Norway to visit and help my father. He is moving to a senior apartment close to where one of my brothers with family live.

May 8th is an important day. I’ll be back before than.

Hugs from Nancy

Nydelig quilt med Valentineshjerter. Artig miss Piggy vinbag du har sydd til glede og nytte. Ønsker deg en god tur nordover. Om du kommer til Tromsø er jeg her, vet du.

May Britt said...

God tur nordover. Nå vet du ihvertfall at faren din får det trygt og har tilsyn.
Så fine "Stina-hjertene" ble. Jeg må jammen få tegna opp og sydd mine også nå.

I like Miss Svin, but is it real wine coming out of her?!?!?!?

Hi Nancy, I was just wondering if you could give me some more information about the Miss Svin pattern. I have tried looking for it but can not find out where to find it. It would make a fantastic present for my mother for Christmas
Thanks, Darlene
