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.

I have also been working on A Tisket, A Tasket appliquĂ© 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).

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.

Missing sewing report

This week has not been a good week. It is hard when old folks don’t understand reality and overestimate capability. However I think we are on the road to a good solution. One of the problems is that I have to travel 2000 km and all airports in Norway are closed due to volcanic ashes from Island making big problems for air traffic all over Europe. I hope I’ll be able to travel on Thursday as planed.

I know I promised a sewing report, but all my sewing plans just did not happen this week. Sometime life just gets in the way.

I’ll be back.

Knitted Socks

About one month ago I knitted one pair of socks to DS2. I don’t know what he did with the socks but this is what he brought me to repair!

I had to buy a stronger yarn to redo the entire foot. I hope his is happy now and that I don’t have to do repairs for a long while.

I want to sew!

I’ll report my sewing later.
