Another little mini quilt....

have seen the light..:O))

Worked with my oranges...
which was FUN... :o)
But I worked Toooo fast for my own good... 
having Dad ill right in the middle of this quilts birth...
 and a deadline to keep.. 
so I delivered this quilt to my friend Åsa who had her birthday last Sunday ... 
Unfinished... or kind of.. :o)

Even the photos came out blurry so You have to live with that
.. or just scroll pass them..lol..

The pattern is a Cheri Saffiote Payne pattern (Again) :O)
from the magazine Primitive Quilts....

I used velvet to the pumpkin
  manchester to the flower centers...
 added a Happy Birthday text instead of the original text
 and here comes the OOOPPPSS!!!!

Forgot to add the berries!!!!
Stupid me...
And all the time while sewing the binding on.. I talked to myself... remember the buttons.. remember the buttons!!!!
Did that help!! 
NAH!!! :O)
 So when Åsa packed up her gift I didnt see it( nor she)  either.. but after a while when sitting there drinking tea...
I saw IT!!!!! BLUSH!! 
Happily we could laugh at it.. and she promised to sew on some pretty red buttons...
PHEWWW!! :O)

(Note to self:
DONT RUSH!!)

So here it is.. a little quilt without it´s berries!! :O))
See you all soon...
I hope.. 
Christmas is coming.. and this year I 
MUST try to have gifts ready before Christmas!!!!
:O)

An orange fix....

never thought I´d start to love orange...
but I have had some orange days over here...
maybe it´s the Autumn... ;o)

So I have started a new little project...
orange strips  and neutrals....
and some flowers...

otherwise days are back to some sort of normal here
...dad gave us a real scare and have been at hospital for chest and leg pain..
he is back home but...BUT... 
 
cant say that Im relieved... :o/
still something wrong...

Will have to keep an extra eye on him...

Days are getting shorter and shorter here.. dark evenings... 
and a black dog ain´t that easy to keep an eye on... 

guess it will be easier once the snow is here .. yuck...

That was a little from me...
must say I´d rather would have been with Leanne Beasley in Vietnam and "Imagine"...:O)

A Time To Sew...

First ...
A special thankyou to all of you who sent well wishes to Viktor....
He waves back a Thankyou.. and tells you he is Ok..:O)

Happily finished with my little quilt and my two surprises...

"A time to sew"

Pattern by Cheri Saffiote Payne...
but I used two different patterns...
I changed the center motif to a more sewing related one...

Close up of the stitchery...
The backside 
The center....
And the finished little quilt....
I so liked the orange little flowers... 
so the binding had to be orange and yellow!! :o)
And the green little packages were sent to my sewing buddies...
one surprise for Louise...

A blue version... 
And one for Marica...
in brown, pink, green and black.... 
( so Louise.. you see.. I have used BLACK..;O)
They were all soooo fun to sew...
I had a really good sewing time..:O)

Hope to be in my sewing room for more adventures...
 so see you soon!!

 Love xoxo
