Spring is on its way :o)

The last week we have had lots of rain and bad weather, but today the sun was shining, everybody was out enjoying and it really felt like spring.


This is a very popular place for kids to go and feed the birds. And also to walk the dogs, and so did we :o)



As you can see it was a bit cold, ice on the lake, but it was barely holding the ducks. If they had a little rough landing, they went through :o)


But it was not too cold for these lovely flowers to bloom!

I have also been doing some sewing, some runners I have to finish in a couple of weeks. One of them is the runner from the embroidery machine class some weeks ago. I was planning to finish it today, but when I was cutting the binding, it was not enough fabric left...


This is as far as I got. The binding is going to be the same as the frame around the embroideries. A little closer look at the blocks - they are really beautiful!



I have another runner coming up aswell, a red one - I love red :o)


Its only half way done. On both sides I will add some flowers, Im doing some stitchery on them now. I believe it will be nice in the end :o)

I will try to post more often, but I need more hours in the day.... In the shop we are busy preparing for the annual meeting in the Norwegian Quilt Association. This is my first time participating, so Im really looking forward to it :o)

Wishing you all a wonderful week :o)
