Friday night I joined Wendy in the Friday Night Sew-In and made some secret sewing for a few swaps I'm in.
If you want to see what others that signed up for FNSI made, you can go HERE. Thank you Wendy for hosting!

I continued over the weekend and also finished this small pouch.

Sooli asked me what the Snenesserally was that I talked about in my last post .
It's a kind of Pay It Forward /Give away for people in Sweden that want to sew a small pouch out of a pattern that is named Snenesse. If you win the give away you get some fabric you can use or mix it up with fabric from your own stash, when finished you have to fill up the fabric and have your own give away. And so it goes on and on! If you're interested in the give away go to the post HERE to make a comment.

Photos! and Snenesserally again with a Give away!

I'm back at a computer, so hopefully everything will work out this time!
First out is the cushions for my DS#2 I mentioned last time. He works at a sawmill so I thought this fabric would be nice for him!
There's two large cushions and one even bigger which keeps a bed cover he can use when he has a visitor.

Then after that my DS#1 had his birthday, there's only one week between their special days. This year I made him a toilet case, which he thinks he doesn't need.
It's made out of old jeans and this nice fabric with cars that he liked!

I won the "Snenesserally" again and got these lovely fabrics from Christina 

and this was the start of my snenesse, I won't show you the result today because now it's time for me to pass this GIVE AWAY on.
Sorry but this is only for my Swedish readers!
Here is the fabric I will pass on to the one who wins the give away.
And if you win you have to sew your own Snenesse, you can use the fabric you get or mix it up with fabric from your stash but in the end you have to fill it up with as much fabric as you get and have your own give away.

It sounds fun, right!
So go ahead and make a comment on this post if you want to win the rally and keep it going!

I will draw a winner next Friday evening and also show you the result of my own Snenesse!

Tonight is the FNSI hosted by Wendy

I have a lot of secret sewing to finish.
So better get on with it!

Hi, do you remember me? Life has been so hectic and time is flying, so I haven't had any energy to make a post. But now I'm back!
Today I'm using my Ipad to write this so hopefully it will work out ok.
For FNwF I made three cushions for my DS#2, he has recently got a job and moved away, and his birthday was on Saturday. I don't seem to be able to upload any photos so I guess you have to wait til next time to see them. Sorry about that!
Thanks Cheryll for organising us all! If you want to see what everyone
else was working  on go HERE.
See you soon!

FNwF and a Hexiebowl

Friday Night with Friends I spent with Cheryll and a bunch of other lovely ladies. Thanks Cheryll for having us all over, I had the best of times! HERE you can see what everyone was working on.
I was working on this little Hexie bowl, a pattern I've been trying out for Rachael.
I think it looks very sweet and was a fun project to make. Here it's filled with some chocolate!
Since it's already turned into Monday I'll be linking to Bambi

Let's Book It - July 2015

I've been away for a couple of days, visiting a friend who has moved away. Of course I had to sew something for her and her new home!
This is what I came up with
a tablerunner in her favorite colour! The pattern I found in this book - Sy med lappar.

In the book it's a pattern for a cushion but I made it a bit bigger, and from the scraps I made some mugrugs to go with the runner.

Today I'm linking to Vroomans Quilts and 
her Let's Book It challenge.
It feels so good to use some of all the books I have!

Friday night I spent with cyber friends. I made two blocks for Liz, my swap partner for July in the QBSA, but I can't upload them so you won't see them today. Thank you Cheryll for organising us all even if you were out of town! You can see what everyone else was doing if you go HERE!

Instead there is this Zebra which I think turned out great!
It's a pattern I've been testing for Juliet @ Tartankiwi and I must say that I love it! I think I'll make a cushion out of it. If you're interested in the pattern you can find it HERE!

Today I'm linking to Bambisyr because it's Monday!

My DS2

It's been quite a while since I last wrote a post on the blog, so I don't really know where to start.
So tonight the only thing I'll show you is photos of my youngest, DS2. It's one from his prom night and on from his graduation day.
                                                          Aren't they sweet!

                                      Congrats Isac, I'm a very proud Mum!

Friday night I joined Cheryll in FNwF. Thank you Cheryll for hosting! To see what everyone else was doing, go HERE.
Over the weekend I've been making another small pouch made out of a block I've got in a swap in the QBSA.
The rest of the weekend I've been stitching on bindings, hanging sleeves and labels on two quilts.
They are ready for the yearly quilt show next weekend
I hope you can come for a visit and perhaps get a lottery ticket and win that gorgeous quilt in the picture. To read more about it , go HERE.

Maja's challenge!

Today is the day to reveal what I made with the fabric I got from Maja.
I combined the multi coloured fabric with a red and a black one.

It was very hard to decide what to make with it, it's not the usual kind of fabric I choose. So it took some time, it wasn't until I got this pattern from Kerry in Australia I suddenly knew what to make from it.
It's a free tutorial from Mad Quilter and is called the Jewel bag.
 I think it turned out great! It's got an odd shape that I like. I usually don't  wear bags a lot but I think this will be a keeper this summer!
Thank you so much Maja for letting me be a part in this challenge, it's been great fun!!

I can't show very much of the challenge I'm working on, but today I finished my May blocks in the Nature's Journey SAL.
And I have made two more Snenessar, pattern by Anette could be found HERE.

This weekend I will be partying with Chooky when she celebrates her Chookshed's 3rd birthday! And I really need a party to cheer me up after having had both sinusitis and inflammation in the ears. So after having no energy for anything I have a lot to do this weekend!
First up is this fabric I got in a challenge from Maja.
The challenge is to sew anything I want and I can use as many more fabrics I want. I can tell you, it's really been a challenge to come up with an idea to what to sew. But this week I got a pattern from Kerry in Australia in a swap and it will be perfect for this I think. It will all be revealed on June 5th, so you'll have to wait till then to see the result.
I also have to put a flange and binding on two quilts I will show at the yearly exhibition at Sprätthönsen. More about that later.

Now to prepare for the party, chill some bubbles, prepare an easy to do dinner and some nibbles!
If you want to join in with Chooky in her celebration you can sign up HERE!
