My day

It's my day off, and I've got lots planned... Last Monday I started making some Christmas presents, and this tablerunner was one of them.  I finished four tops, quilted them yesterday, and now I am ready to bind the last three.  These were fun to make- the tulip fabric is at least 10 years old... I bought it at a shop called "Quilteriet" which was right by our house when we lived in Sofiemyr. I loved that shop... I think they closed quite a few years ago now though :-( The great part was I HAD to pass this shop to get to the grocery store... Needless to say I went to the grocery store almost every day LOL.

Here's another project; a dress for Kristine.  It's been a few years since she asked me to knit her anything at all (except for mittens), she just "borrows" my sweaters.... But when this pattern book arrived at the shop from Rauma, she fell in love with this dress, so I was happy to start knitting it for her.  I think this will take a while, because there are A LOT of stitches in the round...

And my last project for the day- Baking bread. The dough is rising, should be ready in about ten minutes now. I love the smell of fresh baked bread- don't you?  I'm sure the boys will be happy when they get home from school as well. Mondays are short days for them so they get home at 1PM :-)
Thanks for stopping by, have a great day!

Finally a big Happy Birthday to my Aunt and Uncle, and Jake in FL!!
