New project

OK so now I'm ready for a new project. I am going to use these fabrics (plus a few more I still have to buy) to sew a "rainbow strip set". I will then cut my set into 5 equal pieces, and send 4 of them away to my rainbow swap partners, and since I am in two different rainbow swaps, I'll have to do it twice, and I will have double the fun :). I haven't decided what to make of the rainbow pieces I will receive yet, but I do love the place mats, and the colorful quilt.

I have also been a good girl and used A LOT of my stash over the past few months. The 1 hr. a day quilt was also a great stash buster, and after cleaning up my fabric shelves (thank you Monica for showing us how to fold fabric so neatly) Now I realize I need to rebuild my stash again. So if any of you know where to find a "stash builder" button, please let me know! Oh I will have so much fun, I've already ordered some great fabric from the fat quarter shop and hopefully it will arrive sometime next week.

Now back to last weekend and my hubby's great Vasalopp adventure. He did good on his 90 km. ski "race" and I think he's even ready to do it again next year. I had a lot of fun driving from the start in Sälen to the finish line in Mora, stopping at a few places to stand by the tracks and cheer the skiers on their way.


  1. I love the colours for your rainbow swap, and the black and coloured quilt is wonderful.

  2. Interesting your new svap and beautiful the fabrics that you will use.
    ciao ciao

  3. Great folding job! I also love the colors of the rainbow fabrics. AND the skiing looks very cool! :)

  4. I have also entered the Rainbow swap. Your choice of fabrics looks delicious. And I love the result in your closet. I need to learn from Monica as well! Got to go....

  5. Så nydelige stoffer i regnbuefarger! Det var noe kjent med den boken. Tror jeg har lånt den på biblioteket en gang.Gleder meg til å se hva du skal sy!

  6. Blir spennende å se hva du skal sy av regnbue stoffene. Jeg sydde sekken for noen år siden. Har brukt den veldig mye! Lykke til!


Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment, I really appreciate it!
