NO NEWS are GOOD NEWS ... :)))

 
I`m still here, trying to be ever so patient!
 This is part of the  "BE ATTITUDE" by Nancy Halvorsen.
The quilt has been on my wall for a looong time and being very appropriate just now. 
 
 Waiting for an operation on my trigger thumb, date not known yet ,but very soon;glad to say. 
Well  then, sewing will be slower than usual for some time ahead! 
 
In the meantime I `m planning. Like working slowly on some Christmas projects. This is the first stitchery of 5. A mystery quilt to be, pattern by the Norwegian designer AnnAka and pattern given in the Norwegian magazine "Quiltemagasinet" every month including October month.
 
For the 3rd year in a row I have joined Chookyblue`s SSCS; a secret Christmas swap! Having received my secret partner`s name, I have now started planning. Maybe I will use some of the fabrics you can see here OR maybe not. She does not know I`m the one she will be receiving 2 presents from. One small one and one bigger one. Great fun as I will be receiving the same from somebody unknown out there in a foreign country. By November presents will be swapped :)))
 
Check my sidebar for Chookyblue`s tag (soon" alive").
 Have a nice and happy weekend all my blogger friends! Not too much sewing for me the next few days, but better days will come :))  Till next time: Hugs, Grethe.

Hei. Håper du får fiks tommelen kjapt og at det blir bra enda kjappere. Jeg syr også AnnAkas nisser...kjempe søte. Så gøy at du er med på Donnas SSCS i år også:-) det blir jo nesten ikke jul uten den. Ha en riktig god helg. Klem.

Lykke til med operasjonen, jeg vet hvor kjedelig det er å vente på slikt. Nå har jeg også meldt meg på SSCS,, da er jeg med på to "swaps" for aller første gang. Spennende!

QUILTING IS BLISSFUL, DI said...

I hate waiting too for things--like my brother and his wife are coming for a visit--but they have not called to say when they will be in town--thought they would be here by now???? Oh well--like you we can plan and prepare things and work some!!
hope you get your 'date' soon so you are back to full working time!!
Hugs, Di and miss gracie

Lykke til med operasjonen! Du får legge mange planer mens du venter.
Nissestitcheriet blir flott!
He ei fin helg!

Ulla said...

Good luck for the operation. The be patient block is very nice and good advice for you: give your finger time to heal!
