June tally


The Kingfisher quilt is done and I am so happy with it. 
It has the perfect size for a lap quilt and I use it all the time. 
I did not expect to finish this in June, binding and all. 
I am looking forward to see what project out of 10 Deana draw for us to do in July! 
Without the Chookshed Stitchers Challenge this quilt would not have been done in June. 

It is summer here in Norway. We do have a few days of vacation right now. I have brought knitting and some Sashiko, which both are easy to carry, needing minimal space and very few tools.

Since summer in this part of the world is not very long, we have to take advantage of every day the sun is shining. Doing easy hand work in the sun is so nice!

It has been like forever since I made myself a dress. I saw one that one of my friends have sewn. I was inspired to do one myself and it was great fun.
The fabric is cotton chambray and both the fabric and the pattern come from the Scandinavian store Selfmade.

I will make more garments in the future. I need more dresses and I also have a very nice big shirt pattern  that needs to be used. 

So, even in a life-got-in-the-way-of-creativity month, 2 finishes are great!

I  have not been good at answering comments recently - I do apologize - and hope to catch up soon! 

For the first time every I have brought my computer on vacation. There is a will, there will be a way. 

Take care - wishing you a wonderful day where you are 💗
