Well hello there, and a very happy Monday to you! Did you have a good weekend? I sure did. Last week this lovely magazine came to me all the way from Lise in Australia, along with a cute card and an adorable handpainted button. Thank you so much Lise, the magazine is wonderful, and I think I know exactly where to use the button...Now I have to admit this magazine is one of the best I've seen- It has so many different projects, both stitching and quilting, along with the articles and the wonderful photos I'm just thrilled! I might have to put in a subscription for Homespun...
Julie over on JulieKQuilts has been working on her "Be attitudes" quilt from the book by Nancy Halvorsen, and I just loved her blocks. I've had the book since it came out, and she just gave me the last push to get started- thank you Julie! I made the first block on Saturday, it still has some embroidery that need to be done, but I think I will make another couple of blocks before I start to do the handwork. I still have to finish my two brown chickens- almost there now... And then with summer being almost over I pulled out my knitting again- look, I put away one and a half sock this spring- About time to finish it I think... I actually knitted most of this second sock last night before I took the picture, so it is almost done now.
Yesterday was spent at a soccer tournament with Ola. They had three games Saturday and three games yesterday, and with two hours between games it was a loong day, but we had fun- I love watching the kids play! Tonight I get to drive to Kristine's game which is 85km from here- it's going to be a late night!
I'll leave you with a couple of pictures from yesterday.
Have a great week, and thank you for stopping by!
