Finished a X-mas present.....

from last X-mas :o) I only managed to finish the top in time for x-mas, wrapped it in nice x-mas paper and gave it away with a little note saying I had to get it back for quilting.


But then, my elbow started hurting :o/ I waited and waited, hoping it would be better so I could quilt the top. Its quilt big, so it would be heavy working with it.


I had it all in my head, how I should quilt it. But at last I had to face the fact that the elbow would take some time to heal. So I sent the top to a quilter who did the job for me. Got it back a couple of days ago. The quilter (Kaktus Quilts in Tananger) did a terrific job, quilting and binding it in under a week - amazing!!


It turned out a bit different than in my mind, but Im very pleased with it. And Im sure the new 'owners' will be aswell. Its on its way to them :o)

Some time ago I got a wallhanging from mamacjt (Carol), really cute. My 'little' one Oda (which is 13 and not so little anymore...) was very fascinated and wanted to try to applicate. I was only allowed to show her the techniques, she locked the door to my sewing room when she was working with it :o) Of course, I was very curious, and two days ago she was finished.


Im super-impressed! And she did it all by herself, the cutting, ironing, sewing - all of it!


Wishing you all a super-sunny, warm and relaxing holidays :o)  My blogging will be a bit on and off the next couple of weeks.
