My PIFs

You all should try this ladies..and men!!! Join a PIF and make gifts for someone...it is SOOOO fun!! First I couldn´t come up with any idea at all...took all my magazines to bed...old ones too...and started to get some inspiration...maybe this...and Yes this one I can do!! And no...not that one...and finally the ideas started to come...then the fun starts ...planning the projects...selecting fabrics...this is the part I enjoy most of all I think...to fiddle with my fabric!!

This is my fives...
...and now they are all finished and delivered to their new homes... two of them didn´t want to leave Sweden...not the north part either...one ended here and the other one here... The other ones was a bit more adventurous and decided to a much longer trip...to Australia ...all three of them!! What a trio... and they ended up at these places...here...here and to this place where it been some dispute of who is going to have it or not!
Have heard that they all have been very well taken care of...
hope they will help their new owners to become more organized...not putting any more needles in the couches...the other halves ( the DH) doesnt like that... ;) ...
Good luck to you all!!

So I have taken up a new PIF...and I have signed up for Four Seasons Quilt Swap...ohh...this is exciting...what will I do...who am I going to sew to..and ...who am I going to receive from...exciting!!
Go here and sign up for a PIF...she makes wonderful things!!

  5. Stopping in for a peek. Great gifts for your friends. Love your colors. Can you tell me about the pattern? Chelsey graduates today. Her open house was wonderful yesterday. I'll be back to quilting before you know it.

  8. Your PIFs look wonderful. Can't believe how quick you were. Put me to shame.! Looking forward to seeing what you make for your Four Seasons swap. Last day of term tomorrow, so hopefully lots of stitching will happen here for the next two weeks.
