Big & Smiling

Today I got my quilting mojo back! I finally got started on the workshop quilts, and (drum roll) I enjoyed it. I put my favourite sewing movie, Pride and prejudice (the BBC version with Colin Firth, yummy) which I have not seen (or heard) for a while, on. Sewing movies functions more like books on tape, and I have seen them all so many times, that I don’t need to pay much attention.
When I left my sewing room I made sure the machine was threaded with the next colour in line and the quilt right next to it, so I’m all set up to go next time I have a few hours.

Then, when I was all tense and achy after quilting, I had a great workout in the hot water pool. We worked a lot on the arms; very appropriate for quilters like me who need more strength. Now I am all relaxed and tired and happy and waiting for husband to bring home dinnerJ I can’t believe I forgot how much I love exercising…


  1. Godt å høre at du har fått sygleden tilbake :) Heldige du som har filmene til stolthet og fordommer, de er en av mine absolutt favoritter......og husk, Colin Firth, han er min...hehehe ;D

  2. Nina Lise, I have laughed through your comments on exercising but know I should be doing the same thing! Your comments on what you learned from your first quilt were funny too...I have learned some of the same things. Your needlepoint pieces are beautiful. I can't wait to see what you make with them.
