Then sun still exists!

Didn´t believe that last week, but today it´s a warm sunny beautiful autumn day. Lovely!
Yesterday my autumn runner got quilted, only the binding left. Maybe today?
A lot of stitches! Started with blanket stitch around all edges and then I stitched with brown thread, two times.
What´s this stitch called in English? In Sweden we call it "kråkspark" (crow kick).
These block are for a project I´m designing for the Swedish quilt magazine Fat Quarter.What it´s gonna be is a secret....

Autumn is here!

Rain, rain, rain......and wind!
Yesterday you sometimes needed a boat instead of a car, or a submarine.....
No colours yet, only withered birch leaves.

But here in my studio there are already lots of beautiful autumn colours

Beautiful fabrics waiting to be cut.

This patches were pieced into two sunflower block.

Ett litet meddelande till mina svenska vänner!

Just want to tell my Swedish friends that I have started another blog in Swedish.......

Om ni inte har fått nog av mig innan så har jag dragit igång ytterligare en blogg, även den kallad Syverkstan, för att inte vara för fantasifull.....
Massor av lappar och broderier och säkert en hel del svammel.......välkomna!

At last!

My website is published on the web!!!!!! Believe it or not....

It has been finished for a couple of weeks now, but from my computer to the internet server, it was a long journey..... Everything that could go wrong did it, I´m sure. The last thing happened yesterday - power outage!

But today.........drum rolls.........

Today is the day! My website is finished and published on the web! WOW!

On this site you can find freebees, tutorials, pictures, my webshop and much more.
And of course competitions. To celebrate the release there will be two of them.
A give away here on the blog and on the website there is another one.

You can find three new patterns in the shop, Flower Runner, Tulip Fantasy Bag and Summer Love. Because of that there will be three prices in the give away.

Just leave a comment here on my blog and tell me which pattern you like to win.

If you write about my website release and this give away on your blog I will count you in three times, and if you put this little logo below on your blog I will count you in five times.

The drawing will be on September 22th.

You can still follow me day by day here on my blog and see the projects I´m working on. Many of them will be patterns for you on the website. Some of them will be freebees and the other are to be found in the shop.

I hope you will enjoy this as much as I do. Please give me feedback, here on the blog or in an e-mail, syverkstan.net@hotmail.com.

Take care and happy stitching,
