BeeFF for Tia

I finally finished my BeeFF blocks for Tia!! Tias month was February, so I am still behind :/
This is the first block
Block 2 for Tia
This is machine sewn. I am just not patient enough to hand sew!
The other block is hand sewn, and so took me almost 2 months to finish :/
Tias first block done
I am still fiddling with the Christmas ornaments, I have some ideas. That'll be the next post...

The kids and I have been visiting my parents all week, we'll be going back to Copenhagen today. We have visited the artmuseum, aRos.
I really want to see the installation on the roof "Your Rainbow Panorama" by Olafur Eliasson, but it doesn't open untiln the end of May.
So....we'll just have to come back soon :)

We also found time to visit a fabric store - obviously!

Happy Easter

I am trying to catch up on some sewing. I made these pillows for my Dad. They are his birthday present. And to give you and idea of how late I really am, I can tell you that his birthday is in January *ahem*
Morris Workshop Pillows

I made these to match the Morris Workshop quilt I made for my parents for Christmas. Atleast that was done in time ;)
I used up every little bit of the prints to finish these, as you can see on the back

I have almost finished one bee block for Tia, and I have one more to do. Lets just say, that applique is not my favourite kind of sewing....
While my machine is being fixed...
This block I am handsewing, and the next one will be sewn on my machine. If not Tia will not get these babies back until sometime in 2012 - and that would not be fair!
I have also almost finished a block for Lu, but I'll have to show you that when I am back in Copenhagen, I didn't take a picture of it yet.

On a different note....
Mmmmm....spring! You have to love it!

The kids and I are spending Easter in Aarhus with my parents, and we are having a wonderful time.

I had some good news at work, and what better way to celebrate it than buying a new pair of shoes?!
These will be for work too....perfect for spring if you ask me :)
