isn’t it lovely?

31 Oct

i FINALLY figured out how to quilt the quilt  🙂 cut out with acrylic templates (custom made here), sewn by machine with a 1/4″-foot.


it will be 4 squares bigger than this, originally i thought even bigger, but having spent a lot of time and fabric on testing techinques i’ve run out of the green fabric – and so has the fabric shop! i am very happy to have figured out how to machine piece this – this way it may get done sometime in the near future 🙂

some intense googling has also given me the name of the pattern – flowering snowball.

and yes i did – last month i bought a new sewing machine! for some reason i just decided i needed one – after having used my mom’s husquarna machine since the 80ies.

since last time, i have also made 3 christmas ornaments from the book julekuler by the designers arne & carlos. the pattern calls for wool filling, but i put glass balls on the inside to give a better round shape, and gave’em a bit of rub with soap and hot water to tighten them up. very quick little project, but a bit fidgety with two colors, 5 needles and a glass ball…

    Så fine julekuler! Jeg har også sånne på planen. Flott lappeteppe også.

    Fine kuler. Lurt med glasskuler inni. Har strikket jeg også, men med ull inni. Ellers har du sydd mye fint.

    I love your ornaments too. They are so sweet!

    Flotte julekuler! Mye annet flott også, forresten… Babyteppet med hjerter, for eksempel!
