a RADIO ...

...is on the shelf above my sewing machine. See my last picture..
I like listening to reports from the Olympic. First now showing you the
 result of a kit I bought some years back at the Festival of Quilt in UK.
I finished the cushion just now. Easy to put down your head for a
little nap on this one compared to the other one in my last post.
We went for a drive the other day, my 4 non-blogger friends and me.
First stop was a sewing machine centre. Randi, Berit and Gudrun
wanted a yearly check on their Janome machine.
While Bente and I enjoyed the company!
Still some snow left, though it has been raining on and off for days.
Next stop was the quilt shop `Lille Stasjon`.
Always lots of  tempting stuff of any kind at this lovely place :-)
Glad to have found sashing and border fabrics for my Sunbonnet Sue quilt.
This `four seasons with Sue` to be hand quilted. I tried to machine quilt
it, but had to use the seam riper as my machine made some funny stitches !!
 Which means another Olympic day by the radio, this time hand quilting.  
We have really strange weather these days. Snow, rain and sunny days
in between it all. Mother Nature are giving very hard time at parts of the world
I am so sorry to hear.Wishing you all the best in any situation you are in.
 Happy Crafting ,from Grethe, xx.

Du har verkligen valt och satt samman milda tyger som passar utmärkt tillsammans i Din fina kudde, tycker jag.

Your new star cushion has such beautiful soft colours!
We have about as little snow as you show in these pictures, but we are still waiting for the real winter to come.

Great cushion Grethe, nice to finish up an older project...what a lovely day out with your friends, always fun to spend some time with company in quilt shops :)...oh how lucky to have a class with Anni to look forward to, I love my yearly visit to her shop as I pass through Bathurst and if she is in the shop she is so nice...the weather is mad all around the world, hope it settles down and makes up its mind in your part...

I love the quilt. Your right Grethe the weather is all very wrong at the moment, but it has finally rained here. Everyone has had their spirits lifted.
