Weekend at home

 This weekend I've been spending a lot of time in my sewingroom.... Svein and the boys are in Sweden with the ski team for some early season training, and Kristine is in Trondheim at a twirling instructor seminar.  I'll be heading there to pick her and her friend up later today.  It's a 2.5hr. drive one way, so there won't be a lot of sewing today, but the sun is shining and it will be a great day for a road trip.
The tablerunner you see above is from an AnnAKa pattern called "Glad retro" or "Happy retro".  I forgot to take my binding fabric home from the shop yeasterday, so I better stop by and pick it up today.  Maybe I'll get the binding on tonight.  There will also be buttons added inside the apples.  We have fabric kits for this at the shop by the way....  Sorry about the bad lighting in the photo- it was taken last night.
After the runner, I dug out this cute Halloween panel, bought at Quilt Featival in Houston last year.  I started sewing the HST's at sewing night with our quilt guild on Tuesday, and I finished the stars and pieced the top this weekend.  The pattern is from a Quick Quilts magazine.  There are still a few smaller panels, or pictures left, I am thinking a bag maybe...???

I just think these little trick or treaters are so cute!!  I'll have to figure out how to quilt this one.  For now it is on my banister waiting....

Then i started another project.... And this one is a bag.... are you surprised??? No I didn't think so LOL.
Well, I better get some sewing done before heading north to Trondheim... ( for you locals it is not all the way to Trondheim, but in Heimdal)
Have a super Sunday, and thanks for stopping by!


  1. Great stitching! Love that Halloween panel!

  2. Lovely table runner you have made so many that I like. The halloween is neat too (I know how much you like halloween). We are counting the time until you all get there. Faith can't wait to visit. she is feeling much better and back to school. Between skating and cheering she is one busy little girl. I am glad you had a time to relax and sew. Take care. Hugs, Marie
