What I’ve been up to

I received word about my secret Angel received her gift the other day.  I am very happy that she liked the stuff I sent all the way to Australia.  Visit her blog and read her comments.

Besides working on new patterns I have made this little makeup purse from a pattern that was a free gift from Fabrikkutsalget, Brumunddal at our annually Quilt meeting in March.

Zappa again

Having a kitten in my house is a lot of fun.  Zappa sems to love naps on the sofa.  Here his is testing out the best sleeping positions.  If you ask me, I don’t think this the most relaxing position I have seen.

This is a BOM they sell kits for.


I have some work going on in my sewingroom. Yesterday I was sewing a lot. I finished a makeup purse from a kit. Also stitched nametag and roses for my Stitchers Angel. I’m also working on a pattern for a tabelrunner with stitchery blocks. As the evening light got poor and I realized I had to turn the lamps on, I diskovered a big Boo Boo. Today I have to undo to complete rows!Not fun at all. I might put it on my list for tomorrow instead.

New pet

Say hello to Zappa! DS2 brought Zappa home from school last week. He and his classmates found 3 abandoned kitten in a ditch by the school. Zappa is a playfull and cuddly kitten. He is potty trained, can walk the steps to second floor and love tinfood. We have no idea of his age, but he is definitly not a wild cat. All his mannars tell us that he grew up in a house. He is a special cat too. He have 7 claws on each front paw and 5 on each back paw.

Look at the big paws!
