Sunday in the sewing corner


The meshwork is done, and I have plans for what to make of it :-)
I use a layer of stabilizer under the whole work and each strip has a strip of fusible web under, so the finished piece is quite thick. No batting needed.
The technique is like weaving or braiding, so the work has 3 layers of doubled fabric.
I have had great fun and I have plans for more meshwork soon :-)


It was time to start another care quilt kit too. 2,5" strips is nice to work with, and it is fun to go through my own fabric collection making kits.


I just had to sew a couple of blocks and before I knew it, I had all the 48 blocks done :-) It is the beauty of pre cut pieces!
I am practising using the left foot on the sewing machine pedal and it is not easy. Habits are hard to change…..


Lately I have been making crisp bread several times, with flax seeds, sunflower seeds, sesame seeds, oatmeal and spelt flour.
They are so nice just as a snack or with cheese or orange marmalade.
They last only for a couple of days - both DH and I love them!


The Civil War Love Letter block of the day :-)


My Sunday has been lovely - I hope you have enjoyed your day too!



  1. Flott meshwork panel du har laget, skal bli spennende og se hva du skal bruke det til.

  2. Her var mye fint å se! Spennende teknikk!

  3. Så flotte ting du syr! Min symaskin blir nok forsømt en del nå med små i huset, strikketøyet er lettere å dra rundt med seg! Vi har også hatt en flott dag ute på tur uten regn idag, men en masse sølepytter for to små å hoppe i!
    Ha en fin uke!

  4. Looks like you have been very busy! I can't wait to see what you make of your meshwork. I can't figure out how you do that. It looks like fun!

  5. The meshwork is amazing!

  6. Your meshwork is awesome and has so much dimension. I'll be anxious to see how you are going to use it.

  7. ser det er flere som har havna på knekkebrød-galeien. Sunt og godt det da.
    Du er utrolig ivrig med de aksjonsteppene dine.

  8. Ser du har hatt en produktiv helg :)
