Hello Kitty

Har helt falt for slike små mapper. Denne gangen er det Hello Kitty på framsiden. Synes de ble litt søte, jeg.

So addicting these small bags. Today I've made two Hello Kitty pouches. And I love them.

Scraps

Den 15. i hver måned er dagen for scraps eller rester hos Rutigt. I dag har jeg sydd logcabinblokker og delt dem inn i fire. Skal etterhvert sy dem sammen igjen på en ny måte. Dette er starten på et nytt samarbeidsprosjekt i quiltelaget mitt. Har også sydd noen nye blokker til resteteppet mitt, og framsider til nye søte nåleputer.

The 15th is the date for scraps by Rutigt. Today I made two log cabin blocks and cut them in four. They are going to start a new project for my quilt guild. I also made some new blocks for my scrap quilt and a couple of fronts for sweet pincushions.

La Passion - 14 600 hexagons

Denne uka har jeg bestemt meg for å ta et skippertak på dette arbeidet. Håper å klare enda 200 sekskanter før søndag. Teppet er så stort at det ikke får plass på golvet. Og været i dag var ikke egnet til å ta det ut.

This week I've planned to make 400 hexies. The weather today was not inviting me to take my La Passion outside, and it's now too big for my floor. But you can see that the third corner is growing.

Små symapper

Disse mappene er flotte venninnegaver eller presanger til ungdom som flytter på hybel. Der kan de oppbevare nål og tråd så de i det minste kan sy i en knapp selv. Og har du ikke for mange trådsneller, er det plass til dem her.

These pouches are so fun to make. And they are perfect to give away to youngsters, with some needles and tread inside. Then they at least can sew on a button. Also nice to give to a friend with some beautiful thread and other goodies in it.

La Passion - 14 500 hexagons

Da måtte jeg ut i den første lille snøen her for å ta bilde ved denne rundingen av hundre. Har enda et håp om å få ferdig toppen før nyttår, selv om det er godt over 2000 sekskanter igjen.

I had to go out in the first snow here to take a picture of my La Passion today. I've still got a hope to be able to finish the top at the end of this year.

For katteelskere

Har sydd to små barnetoalettmapper eller reisetoalettmapper for katteelskere. Fint å ha med seg når en skal reise med fly uten å sende bagasje.

I made two children's or travellers toilet bags today. They are also good for cat lovers, and you may keep goodies for your cat in them. A nice denim reuse project too.

La Passion - 14 400 hexagons

På sporet igjen med et nytt hundre. Noen har spurt hvor jeg har teppet mellom hver gang jeg syr på det. Som dere ser så ligger det i en plastikbag. Regner med at den er stor nok til teppet er ferdig. Og vekta akkurat nå er omtrent 2.5 kg.

On track again, and a new hundred. Somebody asked where I keep the quilt. As you can see it's in a plastic bag. The weight is by now about 2,5 kg.

Island Batik October challenge

As ambassadors for Island Batik, the October challenge was to make a quilt with a special border or binding or both. I dicided to make a triangle quilt with just two fabrics. The borders are made swirled in a way. And instead of sewing the binding to the front and handsewing it to the back, I started with the back, turned it and put one of the beautiful seams along the binding. It turned out so well that I'm sure I will do it again. Hope the pictures will show what I did. And I'm happy to have some flowers left here to show you. Good for me, because I don't like winter.

















I always sew on paper when I make HSTs.


































This is the order of the borders, sewn around the middle as a log cabin.

You can see another quilt I used this way of doing it here.

La Passion - 14 300 hexagons

Denne quilten tar etterhvert stor plass. Siden det regner i dag måtte jeg fotografere den inne. Ikke helt enkelt. Mønsteret er laget av Grit på Grit's Life. Hennes teppe er blått, og du kan se det ved å trykke på lenken.

This quilt is really big by now. I barely have a floor big enough for it. But as it was raining today, I had to try to find a place for it. The pattern is made by Grit at Grit's Life. Her quilt is blue, and you can find it by clicking the link.

Perler

Jeg elsker nåleputer, og kaller dem for mine perler. Her kan jeg utnytte den minste flis av et vakkert stoff. Mesteparten av de stoffene jeg har brukt her er små restebiter jeg har fått av en bekjent. Jeg har også fått en ny nålepute i posten i nåleputebyttet hos Bea.

I love pincushions, and they are my diamonds. I can use every little piece of beautiful fabrics. Here I've used small scraps from a friend. And I got a great pincushion to go with my La Passion in my mailbox, in Bea's pincushion swap. Thanks a lot Irene.
