Easter holiday

I am in Hemsedal at the moment. I have already been here for a week. The weather has  not been the best. We have skied twice the last week. The last two days it has rained most of the time. Yesterday I started on my new project, a bag from a pattern by Nortern Quilts. Wenche has designed a pattern called "Gullbukseveske" inspired of the Norwegian Curling Team in the Olympic Games in Vancouver in February. I liked it very much and when the I saw the pattern I decided to make the bag.

Before we left home I picked out the fabrics I would use from my stash and try to take with me everything I would need for making the bag. I have done much as you can see from these photoes but now it is stop. I need two zippers and a tiny batting for the lining. I will make some inner pockets and there are also meant to be a zipper on the top of it. I have come so far:

The rest has to wait until I can get what I need to finish it.

More projects finished

Here it goes. yesterday I sewed the last stitches on the binding of a tablerunner I made before Christmas. This wasn't finished because I didn't find the backing. I started to finish it on Sunday with machine quilting it and sewing the binding on. Now it is done.

My next project was a baggage tag for my suitcase. I found the idea in the last Quiltemagasinet. Trine Bakke was the woman behind the pattern. It was very easy to make.

Now I have taken the two last projects I cut before Christmas that were not sewn then. I guess I hadn't hours enough to sew them. I did sew a lot of them for sale at our Christmas fair in November. I used this on our holiday to Canada in February/March.
