I was trying to work out what I should do--and decided that I should get stuck into the pattern writing for the  "Sew Happy" wall hanging, which I have been putting off for ages. It is so boring, but I did it. Went to print up a couple of copies-- only to find that the printer had run out of magenta and would not print. Of course I did not have a spare magenta cartridge at home , did I? Why it would need magenta, of all colours, I would not know.

Watch this space-- when I do get the printer working, gone to Officeworks to print the photos and painted more buttons---I will have a give away of this pattern, if anyone is interested.
Enjoy the weekend everyone.

Projects from Norway and a Win

I always love it when someone takes the time to send me photos of what they have made from my patterns. So I was thrilled when I received these photos from May-Britt, all the way from Norway. These patterns are available from Asne's shop, Quiltefryd, in Tonsberg, Norway. In fact a new parcel of the patterns for the Blue Heart cushion and  Blue Heart wall hanging have just gone to the shop.

Thank you May-Britt, for sending these photos to me. You have made my day.

I love blog hopping and reading different posts-- and one that I love to read belongs to Stephanie from Rummage ( . I was very lucky to win a bag from Stephanie --- and it arrived in the post a couple of weeks ago. Needless to say, the bag is beautifully made and it now accompanies me to the shops.

This Friday night is FNSI, so sign up at  Wendy's blog, and join in. Look forward to seeing you there.

Friday night with Friends

I am a little late in posting what I did on FNWFs.

FNWFs hosted by Cheryll
I am making a quilt and it is going to have Ohio Stars. I love Ohio stars but my machine skills are poor and accuracy is appalling. I have put off making these stars for years because of that. I decided that practice makes perfect! So I cut a heap of squares and sewed these-- 1 x 9"block, 1 x 3"block and a few 6"blocks. I was pleasantly surprised as to how well they turned out-- so they will have a place in the new quilt after all.

Thank you Cheryll for hosting yet another enjoyable FNWFs.
