Started to sew!!

Yesterday I was so full of energy after seeing all the activity in blogland...
and I have to say it felt really good to sit behind the sewingmachine!!

Started with the little kit I got from Kathie...
her lovely stretched stars!!
Thanks again Kathie for the lovely homespuns!!!
Sewed them all together... and I couldn´t just leave the little snippets so I sewed them together too...
don´t really know what I will do with them...I leave that for some days and see what I can come up with...
Today I continued with the little kit.....so now its finished... :)
ok sewed together...not quilted..hold your horses!!!
It just need a little something... :)

And how can anyone resist the lovely new FREE BOM´s that Bunny Hill and Gail Pan is so kind to offer!!
I definetly can´t...have Bunny Hills printed out and will start that one soon!! Haven´t decided what colours to use...Hmmmm :f

Gails first block I finished today...
I love it... but as usual..I just can´t use only one fabric... so of course my version will be a scrappier one... but that´s me... :)

  1. Hey Stina! Wow! You have been VERY productive!! And I like that your block has all different fabrics - that's my style too, in fact, I usually can't even stick to all one colour! tee! Hee! Hee! I've downloaded Gail's block, but haven't started yet - got interrupted by my Secret Squirrel project. Maybe next week ...!! Can't wait to see your little kit all finished! Bear Hugs! KRIS

  30. Hi Stina, I love your block. I just finished mine last night and have done the same. I could not just have one fabric either. I've decided to do a couple at once, one for me and one for my sister using the same fabrics just in different spots. It will be great to seem the all finished. Your fabrics look beautiful. D. :=)
