Weekend sewing

This weekend Svein and Sigve have been away for ski training again, so Ola and I have been "home alone". That means we do what we like best- He watches movies and plays games ( typical 16 year old), and I get to sew.....  I am working on my Hope Chest blocks, and I need to find a fabric for the sashing now....

This will look so pretty!!

I do have a few projects going.... We needed to make some samples for the shop out of new fabric that arrived right before quilt market- so I started on a few placemats as well....

Then I remembered I had made some Christmas placemats a while back..... They need to be quilted and bound so they are ready when December rolls around.

Last night I basted this together, and I had planned on quilting it today, but I started reading a new book last night (Me before you by Jojo Moyes)( Et helt halvt år) , and I haven't been able to put it down long enough to start quilting..... I am on page 395 now, and I will probably read the last 100 pages tonight.... I am just hopeless when it comes to reading books.  I can't seem to put them down  until I finish them.... So no more time for blogging.... Thanks for stopping by!
Oh and by the way- I did get some secret SSCS sewing in as well......
