I decided to enlarge my quilt a bit, so the patches are now 80. I can now start to assemble the quilt...woohoo...!! The patches on the left are for the border. I sort of managed to use each fabric only once. I used a few of the solids twice.

Actually I have to finish two other quilts before I can go further with this one so Ill just have to wait a bit longer until I have a quilt on my bed... I try to be patient... try ...

Ive been working so much lately that I just dont have the energy to sew when I get home at night. I hope that will get better this week, there is sooo much I have to finish in the short time until I leave for Denmark.

Thats it for now folks....

I finished this sweater about a month ago andhave been wearing it almost daily since. I usedRowan 4ply, a yarn I really love. So soft and comfy, both to wear andto knit with. At first I was having trouble with thelace pattern but soon it became addictive and I just couldnt stop knitting. Now I want to knit a sweater that is all in lace. Actually this one was supposed to be the summer sweater last summer but for some reason it ended up in a bag. Im really gladthat I took it out and finished it. I will probably be wearing it until it falls apart :) Its really pretty with skirts as well and over dresses and.....

DSC03664Og hr er hn svo prjnunum. a er alltaf gaman a sj peysu prjnunum ekki satt?Srstaklega svona eftir .

And here it is still on the needles. Its always fun to see a sweater half way through, right? Specially after its all knitted.

Eigi gan dag dllur, vonandi fum vi annan gleidag dag me gu veri. g tla a labba vinnuna (um klukkutmi) sem er bara yndislegt egar veri er svona gott.

Have a good day dear friends, hopefully we will be getting another happy-day with good weather. I am going to walk to work (takes about an hour) which is so wonderful when the weather is this good.

DSC03986Teppi rmi mitt er fari a myndast. Nna er g bin me 34 bta af 70 svo etta er allt a koma. Oh g hlakka svoooo til egar a verur tilbi (vonandi sumar). a er nefnilega kominn tmi a g fi fallegt teppi mitt eigi rm. Teppi verur eingngu gert r afgngum og g er a reyna a nota hvert efni bara einu sinni. a a j 140 mismunandi efni teppi, eins gott a g gtis stafla af efnum :)

The quilt for my bed is starting to come togeather. Ive now made 34 patches of 70 so everything is coming along nicely. I just cant wait to have it finished (hopefully in the summer). It is about time that I have a quilt on my own bed. Im only using my stash for this quilt and I am trying to use each fabric only once. That means 140 different fabrics. Good I have a lovely stash to use from :)


Ntt teppi

DSC03944

Jja, er etta litla teppi loksins tilbi.a eralgerlega gert refnis afgngum, nema rndtta efni sem er fr Kaffe Fassett. trlegt en satt en tk a mig um r a klra a! samt er a ekki nema 130x80cm. g lagi a svo oft fr mr, fr erlendis 3 mnui og flutti svo kannski er ekkert skrti hva a tk langan tma...ahem..ea g reyni a segja sjlfri mr a. g klrai teppi janar sem tk bara tvo mnui a klra fr byrjun til enda. g byrjai a quilta a fyrir um 2 mnuum en miju kafi brotnai fturinn vlinni minni. Vonandi fylgir bara gfa teppinu framtinni. Kannski er stan fyrir seinkuninni teppinu er einfaldlegas a g hef ekki hugmynd um hva g a gera vi a. Er etta veggteppi?? Barnateppi?? Og handa hverjum? Eins og er er g bara ng me a vera bin me a og a dugir bili.

Finally my sweet little quilt is finished, made entirely out of scraps apart from the stripy fabric which is from Kaffe Fassett. It took me a whole year to finish this and it only measures 130x80cm. I put it away so many times, went abroad for 3 months and then moved house so maybe its not so strange after all just how long this one took..ahem.. or so I try to tell myself. I did finish a full size quilt in january that only took2 months from start to finish.I started quilting it about 2 months ago but halfway through the quilting foot broke! I hope only good things will happen to it in the future. Maybe the reason it took so long to finish is simply the fact that I have no idea what to do with it. Is it a wall quilt? A baby quilt?? I just dont know. For now Im just really glad its done.

Hr er svo sm nrmynd

Here is a little close up

DSC03948

Baki er lka Kaffe Fassett efni. Verst a mr tekst ekki a n litunum alveg rttum en hringirnir eru alveg neon-grnir. trlega fallegt efni og passar svo vel vi teppi.

The back is a Kaffe Fassett fabric as well. Too bad I cant get the colours right though. The circles are lime-green. Such a beautiful fabric and just perfect for my little quilt.

DSC03964

g hef aldrei ur loka teppi me rndum skornum sk og er trlega ng me tkomuna. Mun potttt gera etta aftur.

I have never cut the binding on the bias before and I am so happy with the result! Ill be doing this again for sure.

En helgin er annars helgu prjnaskap a mestu og gengur vel. Svo yndislegt egar slin ltur aeins vita af sr. s gngutrar, sundferir, grilllykt loftinu og rllandi sumar hamingja bara.

The weekend is mostly dedicated to knitting and the summer sweater is going really well. So nice when the sun gives us a little visit. Walks with ice-cream, swimming, bbqs and happy summer moods.

Var svo a komast a v a eir eru a htta a framleia a...er etta ekki tpskt?Milk cotton garni kemur stainn en a verur ekki flutt inn hinga ar sem a er of drt (yfir 1000kr dokkan sem er ansi miki fyrirbmullargarn). g er mjg hrifin af fnlegum bmullarpeysum nna og r vera a hafa einhverja fer .e g er ekki a nenna a prjna bara sltt essa dagana. Veit ekki afhverju. essi flgur alveg fram jafnvel hn s prjnu prjna 2.5 mm og g hlakka miki til a klast henni sumar...oh hva g ver fn.

The summer sweater is well on its way. When Ive got the back finished I always feel like half of the work is done. Ive completely fallen for the Rowan 4 ply cotton yarn and this is the second sweater in a row that I knit from it. However I just found out that they are stopping the production of it... isnt that typical? when you find something you like so much? They have replaced it with the milk-cotton yarn but that isnt awailable here as it is too expensive. At the moment I most like to knit really finely knitted sweaters and they have to have some kind of texture, Im in no mood for just smooth surfaces. Dont know why. This one is really moving along quickly even though it is knitted on needles no. 2.5 mm and I cant wait to wear it this summer.


afrakstur dagsins

DSC03920 sustu viku kva g a taka tt ,,quilt-along sem crazymomquilts er a fara af sta me (i sji linkinn hr til hliar).

Ng er til af efnum hr b og a verur gaman a sj hvernig etta vinnst. Get ekki bei a sj a me hvtum kanti.

Last week I decided to take part in a quilt-along that crazymomquilts is starting (link is on the side bar). You make one patch a day from your stash for 70 days and then you have enough for a quilt. Ofcourse I was behind already the first week so today I decided to make a few patches to get myself going. I made 10 and they really are fun to make so Im looking forward to this project. I think Ill make a few at a time rather then just one each day though. How lovely it will be to have a new summery quilt!! This one should make a good dent in my stash and I cant wait to see it with the white sashing.
