Welcome to Syverkstan!

Welcome to my opening weekend, day two!

Today I will show you the first couple of pictures my daughter helped me to take yesterday.
I wrote about posting them last evening but no... I sat down to read blogs but couldn´t keep myself awake. Must had been a hard day... But now after a good nights sleep I´m fit for fight again.
I woke up to a mailbox so full of e-mails that it nearly broke :))) Don´t think I´m unpolite if I don´t answer your comments at once. I will go back and check out your blogs as soon as I get the time. Looking forward to it...
Before the pics, a little reminder, check out my earlier posts. There are a free stitchery pattern and a giveaway yesterday. And later today there will be a new one for today, so welcome back again...
I will mail out the stitchery pattern to you on Monday, leave your comment before that.
But I must have an e-mail address, important! I miss that from some of you who have already left comments. If you are one of them, it´s not ot late, just mail me!
A little thinking: Isn´t it difficult to understand, that we live on the same planet but here by me it´s lunch time, and some of you are sleeping and by others it´s another time of the day..... Well, you have to take a look at my clock when I write about mornings and evenings.....
Enough words, here come the pics:

Welcome in....


No, it looks better, nowadays. I just wanted you to see the difference....

Today it looks much better...

Come closer, yes, most of the quilts are UFOs, but not for so long.... I hope....


A close up, one of my own favorites. I´m working on the applique, by hand, and then it will be handquilted. Hoping about a long life....

And here I am.....


...and the champagne that I wrote about. But we will open it tonight because I needed to use the car yesterday......

Thank you all, I had a great day yesterday!

Last picture, by me and my camera: It´s my daughter, and her fantastic camera. If you want to see her wonderful pictures, click here.

Time for a little work again, and as I already told you, a new giveaway will be posted later today!

Take care out there....all nice people...

Hello Helena!

Congratulations on the opening of your studio!
What a dream come true!

You are only a hop, skip and a jump away from our summer house on the west coast! So one day soon I will come to visit you! I'll contact you first to make sure you are working that day! What fun to have a quilting studio in Sweden!

Best of Luck to you!

The quilting studio, is it open to other people, is it a shop? I am sorry about all these questions, you don´t have to answer them.

Kim sa...

Lol, I have the same questions as you, Gudrun. Helena, the shop is beautiful, spacious and a place where any quilter would love to spend time. Congratulations!
