Christmas cards and some stitching

Good morning! I wrote this post yesterday but my internet wasn´t my best friend then. But now it´s kind to me again, so here it comes, yesterday´s post.

When I came down to my studio this morning I made a decision, my autumn bag will follow me to Stockholm and the Sewing Festival next weekend. Three days left, I´m in a hurry!

Two stitcheries were finished today and the quilting is done. No picture yet of the quilting, will show you that one tomorrow.


....and a leaf.

Tomorrow I will do the stitchery for the front side pocket, make the bottom part and the handle and....depends on time....but I hope I will make it before Friday!

Couldn´t keep my fingers away from my log cabins, now they are eleven. I need about 80....

This evening was a crafting evening in my studio. We were five friends who made Christmas cards.

Here are Eva, Karin and Birgitta....

....and Brita.

Take a look at the table, a creative mess.

Later we needed a break and ordered pizza.

A lot of creativity and stuff, who will clean up....?

What do you think?

Here are some of the cards I made. "God Jul", that´s "Merry Christmas" in Swedish.

We had a lot of fun and couldn´t stop.....quite late back home....need some sleep.....
Take care,
