Old projects and new project....

Well, I have been sewing even if I haven't been blogging.... This is a 6 month BOM we've been running at the shop, from Norwegian designer AnnAKa.  It is an advent calendar, so after I eventually get around to quilting it, I will add a few more details like buttons and loops to hang all 24 adventpacages from :-) I have until the end of November to finish it, so I thinl\k I'll make it in time!
I was working on these hexagon flowes a while back, but managed to sew them together wrong, so I just tossed them aside and didn't want to look at them again for a while.... I really hate it when I make mistakes like that, and they are almost impossible to rip apart again.  I did get the wrong ones off, but today when I picked them up again I found another mistake.... Maybe this project wasn't made to be for me??  I did get the mistake corrected though and I am determined it will be finished (one day...)
To pick my spirits back up I decided to audition fabrics for a new summer purse.  You know I desperately need one, right?? I feel so much better now- I better get started on the purse before I decide to keep working on those hexagon flowers LOL.
Take care, and thanks for stopping by!


  1. You're so cute -- everyone needs a new purse! Those colors are perfect for summer too. Your advent calendar is looking great too -- it will be interesting to see how you hang advent things from it!

  2. It's such a lovely design Anne Heidi - and yes of course you need a new purse! Lovely to catch up on what you've been up to...
