Nordic World Ski Champions in Oslo and I have prepared 2 sets of skies....

Super skies,waxed and ready to be used.
Yes,thanks,I know you are impressed!
But in fact I gave up competing years
ago:-) Please check the next picture.

8 done, 4 to be sewn during the next 2 months or so. Sort of mystery
as we do not know the pattern till it is shown on the Moose`s blog.
I thought it would be nice to show you my 8 blocks of that
Layer Cake Quilt Along. Hanging there on the skies.
The winter weather here in Oslo is more pleasant these days,
cold and crisp. As the Champions are held in Oslo,so you can
all check what the weather is like in Oslo when
watching the TV. Why the flag:
1. Hurrah, I won in the drawing for my block 8,lucky me!!
I am using a Layer Cake called Breakfast at Tiffany`s
(think have told you before) 2. I also thought as Norway
arrange this Champs,nice to have our flag on the picture:-)

Still active days for me,always:-))
Lots of Boms to think about,can I ever stop signing up?
In fact I have been much stricter lately,
as lots of envelopes still seem to find their way into
the mailbox:))))

Lynette Anderson`s My Garden is moving forward. 5 blocks done,
4 to go! I love the pattern as well as the darkish Evening Mist
fabrics. Block 9 is due to arrive one of these days. So by the
summer the little quilt is bound to be finished.......

FUN quilt "Birdie Stitches" BOM,free on the net. Check this super
mystery quilt by http://www.littlemissshabpby.com
I just love the stitchery,thanks to Terry`s Treasures I knew
about this free BOM.

I am using Hunky Dori and Sunkissed,love both of the Charm Packs.
I have reduced the square to 6 1/2 " ISO 8" and the 2 1/2" to 2"
so may be later I`ll find some space on the wall for it:-)

I have never stitched on grey before,but it gives an interesting
look,I like the result. Looking forward to receiving the next
bird-block. Pattern is given free every 1 of the Month. Lots of
different birdies quilt blocks on Flickr if you care to check.

I am knitting,a wool jumper. Kasper is 8 on March 29,so
plenty of time. His old wool jacket in red there on the
picture measuring the seize. But I see he might need something
red under the one I knit to cheer it up.

Will be lots of TV watching during the coming 2 weeks,as I love
watching the ski-competition,so knitting will be OK.

I am very sorry to be learning about the earthquake in
New Zealand. Mother Nature has done some sad things
recently. The news and the pictures we see on TV is almost
unbelievable this time too. Very sad indeed.

This is it for now,Take Care all of you close and far away.

You are keeping very busy, aren't you? I didn't start the Birdie bom, because I had too many other things going on, but as I start to see results, I may have to rethink this one! Keep up the great work - and enjoy watching the competition.

Farm Girl said...

Your progress is lovely Grethe - so many projects :-) Your Birdie Stitches BOM is looking great - I still need to stitch February block though.

Things are terrible in Christchurch, we are several hours away and safe here, just trying to work out how we can help in some practical way.

Terry said...

I'm glad you're enjoying your birdie blocks! Yours are so pretty in those soft colors! :0)

Gudveig said...

Åhhh, så flotte ting du lager - og så flittig du er!
Du kunne jo... hmm... prøve å GÅ på skiene dine ;-) når du får tid - innimellom sying og strikking.

Å, så mye du har gjort! Jeg finner ikke rette giret for øyeblikket! Men jeg får bare ta meg selv i nakken ....
Ønsker deg en god helg!

Berit said...

Nå er det bra at det er VM for da får du gjort mye håndsøm ! Da skiene er preparert, må du vel også ut å gå? Hvis ikke ta en tur til sentrum, der er det mye artig å se.

Heather said...

I love your embroidered and appliqued bird blocks. They are so detailed and interesting. I have not seen these before and am glad that you shared them. Thanks for the inspiration.
