Working through my UFO's

This week I started my vacation- yeeey! Two weeks off from work means I can sew a whole lot!!! Especially since DH doesn't have vacation now.... This first week I am doing stuff around the house and relaxing, then next week the kids and I will go see my brother in Oslo :-)
I thought this would be a good week to get some of my UFO's done, like this quilt with hexagons....

And this flannel quilt which I started about seven years ago or so..... The boys used to LOVE this movie called "The Iron Giant" , so when I received this fabric in a fat quarter club I just HAD to make them a quilt. Of course there wasn't enough of the Robot fabric, and it took me a long time to hunt it down, and by the time I got it the boys had moved on to other movies.... figures.... But TODAY I have quilted it, and now it just needs binding.  I am soooo HAPPY!
I just love this fabric.... There is even enough left for a cuddly pillowcase :-)

This is a bag Kristine started this winter.... Not sure why she didn't finish it, but today I am on a mission to get it done.  She'll have a new bag for our Oslo trip next week I am sure.  The pattern is the Bungalow bag from Abbey Lane Quilts in Florida.

Well, as you can see there are still lots of tops that needs to be quilted hanging on my banister.... I wonder how many I'll get done during my vacation??
Off to the sewingroom, maybe I'll get that bag done before dinner.
Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Love that hexagon quilt! Hope you enjoy your holiday & get that stitching done!

  2. Lykke til med UFO-bekjempelsen. Det ser ut som du også har litt å ta av på det området ja

  3. Det er nok noe i lufta.... UFOene blir angrepet her også. Lykke til med alle dine prosjekter. Jeg ser frem til å se resultatene!

  4. Ser ut som du har litt å ta tak i :o) Men tenk hvilken deilig følelse for hver av disse prosjektene som blir ferdig! Lykke til, og ha det gøy!

  5. Oh...this is motivating...I really should finish up som UFO's! Love the bag too!
