Cushions,aTisket aTasket,Tiny Town,Good Laughs....

It took it`s time,but the next two cushions in use :-)
Relaxing on a sunny day in September. As their parents are away
for some days in France,we`re having them,days and nights!
Lots of fun,lots of challenges. The house looks like a mess,
probably taking a week to tidy up and getting back to normal,
but they are really super kids! We are lucky borrowing them
from time to time:-)

Yes,we did have fun while trying to organize the best pictures.

Nice pattern from Bronwyn Hayes book "Sunshine Blue".

Same hidden zipper as done before,and it works well,I think.
The other cushion was just so easy as it was made of one piece
of fabric.

a Tisket a Tasket;all 12stitched.I have decided to be using green sashing. Looking around to find the best suitable colour.May be the grass colour or a lighter one might look good.It will be such a good feeling when I finish this one,started on Nov.1.2010,which means it has been worked on for almost one year...not that I really have been counting the days!

This is Tiny Town block 7 ready to be made.Hopefully the fabrics
will cut out this evening, when Kasper and Eline is back home in
their own beds:-) I have then block 1 and 2 left of TT before I
start sewing the top together.

I will try to be a better blogger when things settles down, must be
soon I hope.
Happy Sewing then to you during the days to come:-)

Herlige unger. Jeg liker også Bronwyn sine mønster - de er så søte.
Nå fikk jeg en påminnelse om å sy sammen A tisket a tasket!

Looks like great fun at your house! Your Tisket a Tasket blocks are gorgeous. You are tempting me to start another project... naughty! Looking forward to seeing your next block of Tiny Town too. All that... and beautiful cushions too. Wow!

Your TT blocks are beautiful. The green looks like a great sashing color. Oh, your TT is going to be so cute, mine still sits in the kits. I am trying to finish up some bigger projects before I tackle that one.

How fun to have the grandies staying with you...your Bronwyn Hayes stitchery is lovely used in the cushion...

Just enjoy yourself Grethe- they aren't young forever and tidying will always be with you.

Great sewing! The cushions look cosy. Yes I know what you mean about big projects. You get to the point when you just want them finished. :-)

Your grandchildren are beautiful, and they look like they're having a wonderful time at Grandma's place! I'm loving your stitching, your TT blocks are lovely too.

Jada, her er det noe for enhver smak. Jeg syntes kurvene er kjempesøte. Og som sagt imponert over skjult glidelås.
Gleder meg til Tiny Town er ferdig.
