Last walls in first room....

...hope you bear with me some more...  :o)

When I first started to think of what to make for the show.. I knew I would make table mats..  so these were supposed to just that...
BUT....
When adding them on the design wall ... 
I started to add  a little bit of that ... and that... 
and THAT...

And I just had so much fun ...
That it became four little wallhangings....

The first one Says...
To Sew...
or "Att sy" in Swedish
...and everything on these are all recycled things.. from my Grandmother.. myself... and  might even be from Great Great Grandmother...

Next one says...
...It...
or "det" in swedish

...Is...
or "är " in swedish

...FUN... :o)
...Skoj... in swedish


 And I sure had fun making them..
they now sit on my wall when going up to my sewing room..:o))

Perfect reminder... to have some fun ! !


One day my Aunt came by and invited me and Guy for a little picnic outside..
It was so welcomed and soo good..:o)

Ok.. next quilt to show..
was to be Carolina Crossroads....
but I didn´t manage to finish the quilt.. but hang it I did...

Must have forgotten to take photos of that one.. but when its finished I show...:o)

Next quilt I made for my friend Louise when she had her 50th Birthday
 Think its an old Meme´s quilt pattern...

She had just made a quilt in pink...blue... 
and I thought this one might match her quilt...

Louise´s Flowers 

Next quilt was made to my daughter Petra for her 15th birthday...
when she had her Stars and Stripes period...

Shirts collected from my Dad and even from myself.. and brothers jeans.. and lots bought at second hand stores..

So enjoyed making this quilt.. it was so fun...
but do also remember the clipping of the seam allowances..
PHHEEWWWWW... 
and the worrying for washing...and emptying in the dryer!!!

But it turned out wonderful!!!
(And heavy!!!!! :o)

 Petras Täcke

And todays last quilt is my Roundabout Schnibble...

I call it Turnabout... 
since I changed  the size and made it bigger....  

Think these were all quilts in this room... 

Have some more to show from this room.. 
the table were I had my things for sale..
but I think we take it another day... :o)

Because now I am going to sew some..
The guys are at a tennis competion in Skellefteå.. and they happily left me home alone...
Guy weekend... with camping in the car.. and no room for mama..;o)))

Have a Schnibble to work on... 
and right now I can not even come up with what fabrics I want to use...

SIGH...
Maybe I go outside and stitch some instead... and it will come to me..

See you...

  13. hi stina
    I have just been reading (and admiring) all your beautiful pictures, in the last 3 posts, with my mum (she came to visit us)
    everything is sooo pretty (my ma says oh, how hard she worked!!)
    we love the one with geraniums, the placemats for the wall, with lace and crochet and cross point..
    my mum loved the paper hearts in the window, so simple but so nice and warm; stina's bag.. :)perfect!!!
    and the quilts.. what can I say.. I'm not sure if I could pick one; I like how you combine embroidery and appliqué and patchwork, and you have such a good eye for combining colours, they are all pretty!!
    are there more pictures yet??
    can't wait!!!
    xoxo

    I hope to make my own Roundabout after the OSAM-Challenge...
    Hugs, Julia
