It`s light and bright outside, lots -read tons- of snow piling
 down night and day. Perfect snow for skiing, but as  being the last
day of January I have been deep into finishing 2 projects. 
 
I went to a work-class at "Østerled" last Saturday.
 I made this middle part  for a cushion, all hand sewn.
Attending Hanne`s class is always enjoyable, always full of
 laughter as well as serious work. All together we were about 120 quilters
 split into 6 classrooms having  different classes to attend to. 
 Check  Hanne`s blog, she has just written an informative tutorial.
Cushion finished today, perfect in the couch :)) My first OPAM for January.
 
My second finish just now are the two potholders made for a cat lover!
 
Just for the fun tried to hang the potholders at our "Christmas tree"
by the entrance...lol... But better rush to find an envelope
and put them into the mail tomorrow:))
 
Enjoy the time ahead the best you can :-) Happy Sewing all month
and thanks for reading, xx.
