Anyway, I took a trip up to Kathrine's Quiltestue last Saturday, and came out with a couple of patterns (ofcourse..). I didn't know that Bareroots had come with mini-patterns! Cute! :D Two of them had to come with me home.. I'm thinkin Christmas presents.. maybe.. hmm..
And I found a new (I think) appliqué pattern, also by Bareroots, I just had to have. It's been a while since I've been doing any appliqué now, so I'm looking forward to making parts of this pattern. Isn't it cute?
Well, I returned yesterday - was only supposed to buy some silk thread, but these three fabrics just called my name. ;) You know the feeling, I bet. I don't know why, but they just really kinda felt like "me", and even though I'm not _quite_ sure what to use them for right now, I think that answer will come soon enough.
On Friday I got the silk threads for the second stitchery BOM from Jordbærstedet too - the pattern/print and the fabrics arrived on Tuesday, sent by my mother who'd picked them up when she was in Trondheim last weekend. I'm not going to show you the pattern/print just yet, I'm thinking of finishing my idea first - and then showing you the result. :)
I've been working on a small Tilda-stitchery too lately. This one is in need of some borders, but until I find the "perfect" fabric, it'll have to wait. :) But it turned out pretty good.
I've finished (I think - I'm considering the need for more quilting atm, but not quite sure yet) the table runner I bought in the States this summer, with the wool appliqué. It turned out nicely, I think, and I'm sure this is a keeper.
Also, 11 months (almost to the date) after starting, this "little" piece of work is finally done! It's the Bareroots wallhanging "What color is spring?" - a mix of both patchwork and stitchery. I just love it! But I think it's going to be a while until (or if) I make another one.. Lots and lots of work.. Martin (dearest BF) is being kind and holding it up for me (so that I won't have to risk my health and balancing on a chair in order to get a good picture). Now it only needs a good and available wallspace, wherever that might be.. but, this one is also a "keeper". Definitly. The 11 months speak for themselves..
Oh, why are the weeks so long (or the days at work so long and the nights at home so short) and the weekends so short? I feel like I'm never able to do or finish all the things I want to.. :/
