FUN FABRIC BOX (and a link to the tut)

I just made a cool fabric box for my son, he´s kept his coins in a glass jar but that broke - I wonder why! - so I asked him if he would like me to make him a fabric box for the coins and he thought that was kind of cool. So here is the link to my all time favorite method of making a fabric box - just CLICK HERE - and you´ll get to the tut in no time :)
Here are photos of my finished box - cool right!


STARTED MY DEAR JEAN QUILT - 225 BLOCK

 I started my Dear Jane quilt a few weeks ago - that has been a dream for so long and I´m so happy that I finely bought the book and have done 6 blocks so far I do them all QAYG and have machine stitched them and quilted but now that I have seen so many blocks that have been hand quilted I want to try that on my next block. I really love the way that turns out and it would be so great to have one quilt that I hand quilted. Here are photos of the 6 blocks I´v done - I might let them stay like this - machine quilted - but I might also rip them apart and hand quilt - I´m just going to see how the hand quilting goes before I do anything with them LOL


 When I was thinking of how to make them, what fabric I should use and so on................ I decided to use just the fabric I had so it would look scrappy but I would not have to buy a lot for this quilt. I also decided to make the backing out of the same fabric that I would use on the front of each block. I like how this is going to look.   
I´m going to do them by alphabetical row and started on block A1

ANOTHER GIFT

Here are 2 photos of a quilt that I made and gave to my favorite nice when she got her dream-job. 
Here I did not use any really pattern just measured a quilt that a friend had done and made some changes and the back is made from scraps of the fabric I used on the front.

This quilt is sewn using only flannel´s so it´s very soft and warm.

BIRTHDAYGIFT

I made this throw for my son´s birthday - he´s been asking me for a long time now to make him a BIG throw that he can cuddle in - he´s 24 since June 3 :) I love it that he still wants to cuddle with a throw - specially one that I make.
But I also had to make him his favorite cake even though he would not be home because of his work. 
A little Brownie with just one candle.
So here he is at almost 10.00 in the morning with his birthday (wish) cake

then when he came home from work late in the eve - I had been waiting for him with his gift (and almost fell asleep on my laptop) 


It was well worth waiting for him just to see his big smile, he was so happy, he even said: wow it´s really BIG mom, THANK YOU SO MUCH and gave me a BIG bear hug. I do love that boy.
I did take a pattern from one of my books but made some changes to it so it would be BIG enough for him. 
I can tell you that I´m very happy with how it turned out and that he LOVED it a lot.

MY STUFF

I´v been thinking about posting some photos of my quilts and stuff I make. 
I know it´s been a very long time but I don´t really feel bad about that because I have not been in the right mood to blog - so I think it´s better to not blog then to put something really bad in here.
So for this time I´m going to dig into my photos and pick 2 or 3 and show you.
I love your comment so don´t hesitate to let me know what you think :)


This one is a work in progress, I´m not sure what it will be, a quilt for the wall or a throw or ? any suggestions from you??
This rug throw I made  for my best nephew in the world :)
This is the front and the next photo is the back.
The back
This is it for now, I hope I´ll be in the right blog-mood to post more and show you more of my work.
Until next time.

2013

Once again I have to try to remember to write ..13 and not ..12 like in 2013 LOL I really don´t think I´ll forget since writing checks has not been used in a few years - now it´s all plastic "money".
I hope every one of you will have a good year and that you can be happy - but like we all know we can´t control our lives we can only do what we think is right and hope that will do.



These are some photos from Reykjavik that I took on the 28th of December 2012.
