La Passion - 9500 hexagons

Det har vært en helg med nydelig vær, og fint å sitte ute og sy sekskanter. Dette er gøy, og går nå fort framover.

It's been a beautiful weekend, and I could sit outside in the sun and sew my hexies. This is fun, and it's growing fast.

Japanske blomster

Under rydding har jeg funnet disse japanske blomstene. Fant også noe mer stoff av den sorten, og klippet til noen flere deler. Men hva skal jeg bruke dem til? Tar imot gode forslag med takk.

Look what I've found. Long ago I made some flowers from japanese fabrics. I found some more fabrics, and cut more pieces for new flowers. If you have a good idea for using them, I would like to know.

La Passion - 9400 hexagons

HeLP for Hexie-aholics, det er nok det jeg trenger for å fullføre denne. For tiden går det bra fort framover. Det er spennende å se hvordan nye deler rigger på hovedarbeidet. Denne siste delen er jeg ganske fornøyd med.

HeLP for Hexie-aholics, that's what I need to finish my La Passion. Just now it's going quite well. It's exciting to see how the new parts I add go with the rest. I actually like how it comes out.

Brikker

Jeg ble ikke helt fortrolig med disse kryssene på resteblokkene jeg holder på med. Da måtte jeg jo bruke dem til noe annet enn i teppet. Så i kveld ble det to nye gryteunderlag. Disse er akkurat passe størrelse til å ha under et ildfast fat.

I didn't really like these blocks to come into my scrap quilt. But as I had made them, I had to use them for something. So tonight they became hot pads. just the right size to exactly fit a hot dish.

Scrap Happy Day i september

Fint å ha en dag i måneden der jeg får brukt opp litt rester. Rutigt og de som linker til der inspirerer meg. I dag har jeg sydd fire av hver type blokker. Antallet hus vokser, og nå er det snart en hel by. De blokkene jeg sydde kryss på sist, har jeg tenkt å bruke til noe annet. Håper å kunne vise det i morgen.

So nice to have a day to sew scraps. Rutigt inspire me to do it. Today I made four scrap blocks and four scrappy houses. The number of houses soon gives me a little town. The cross blocks I think of using for something else. Hopefully you may see it on my blog tomorrow.

Søndagssting

Prøver meg på litt variasjon av håndsømprosjekt denne søndagen. Dette arbeidet har jeg sydd på lenge. Men med det tempoet jeg må holde på min La Passion, blir det lite annet gjort. Men kjekt var det å ta det fram og sy fire nye blokker. En gang blir det ferdig, tror jeg.

I try to make a change from my La Passion today. So nice to sew four new blocks on this totally scrappy one. I will finish it sometime, I think.

La Passion - 9300 hexagons

Kjører i vei, og passerte neste hundre i dag. Da er jeg sånn cirka i rute til å bli ferdig med alle 17000 sekskantene ved juletider neste år. Møbsteret kommer fra fantastiske Grit.

It's growing faster every week. Now I'm starting to believe in finishing this top with all it's 17000 hexies by Christmas next year. Pattern by the one and only Grit.

Q3 FAL -first finish table cloth

My first finish in Leanne's FAL this quarter is this advent runner or table cloth. So good to finish something, even if it is a small finish.
































Here you can see what other projects I'm trying to finish this month.
