last day of the short month of February ......

 
This is my newest table runner from AnnAKa Designs .I had almost forgotten
 this one, but was reminded through a picture on Sølvi`s blog. 
Fabrics that I picked out some time ago were just  waiting for me to start sewing.
 
 
 
Nice light colours for the first day of Spring tomorrow.
Mind you we have lots of snow and cold nights all around here.
 
BIRDIE STITCHES ! I finished block 9 just now.
Now only two stitchery left before the fabric-pieces will be sewn on.
I started on the wall-quilt a couple of years back ( may be 3 years !!),
most of you who joined that stitch-along have finished, I bet :-)
 
IT`S RAINING CATS AND DOGS! Block 4 is finished. I do it all by machine.
I`m in a group with Yvette. We work in different speed, but encourage
 each other constantly :))  We both have 2 friends  (non bloggers)
 who also do this Bunny Hill/ FatQuarterShop quilt.
The soft colour of most of the fabrics are refreshing!
 Will soon bond  some of the blocks together:))
 
BUTTERFLY GARDEN! at last ......
 Glad I wrote the date on block 1, so I can keep track of the years flying by.
 Some  of the stitchery has been done.
Now I must make a strict plan for how to carry on.
 
Looks probably messy for you.
Now I can see which mini-blocks I lack for finishing 2 and 8.
Love block 1 and 9. Must get a move-on soon  :-) 
 
I have finished the small hat and a bed-top for the challenge of Jan/Feb.
KITCHEN is the theme for Di`s challenge for Mar/April.
New table-runner, oven gloves and an apron are my plan.
 
This is the table runner pattern called TeaTime.
Looks quite easy to make. But of course things always takes time!
Lovely fabrics in the box here, a win from last November.  
 
 March is always a full month, will be such a busy time ahead.
We have 4 birthdays in the family this very month :))
Coming up is also the yearly meeting of the Norwegian Quilt Association.
 Looking forward to attend there!
 
Happy Springtime to all  bloggers everywhere!
Happy Sewing! Enjoy the month of March.

Jag tycker att den löparen Du har sytt nu är så vacker i milda ljuvliga tyger. Den är en fröjd för ögat!
