Progress in my sewing room

I am so happy to stay healthy enough to enjoy nice summer whether, calm moments on the pouch with a quilting project in my hands and exciting new projects on my scribbling pad.

I have finished appliqué work on the four center blocks for a Japanese travel quilt for DS and DIL. I have completed all the pieced blocks earlier. DS have his birthday 1. August, and I have kind of told that this is a birthday gift for the both of them. I don’t know if I can make the date yet. The quilt has to be sent off for long arm quilting. Anyway, I’ll do my best.

4 mitter blocks

The Japanese signs on the blocks have a special meaning. The top block is a greeting from a Tea ceremony and the other sign stands for Hope, Happiness and Harmony.

DH is a Football (Soccer) fan, and for those of you that are not, there is a World championship going on in South Africa. In our house that means that there is only Football on the big screen. Lucky I have a small TV in my sewing room!

My the best team win!

Hugs from Nancy

Really nice blocks for this quilt. I guess you get a lot done now while spending all your tv-evenings up in your sewingroom:)

Fin måte å dekorere "kjedelige" blokker på. Ga meg et par ideer til hvordan jeg skal angripe et par grytelapper jeg har lovet ferdig i morgen.
