Beautiful and freezing!

I thought I'd show you some pictures I took the other day, when we were out walking the dog...
It was such a beautiful day, with bright sun. But freezing! It has been a very cold January so far, but the temperature has gone up a little the last days.
We usually say that there is no bad weather, only bad clothing, so we dress up for the cold and take the dog out no matter what the temperature is. And Bamse doesent mind if it's a little cold, he loves to be outside anyway!

Time for some UFO's...

I am trying to finish some UFO's at the moment, I have way too many of those!
This is the first two, made from 2.5 " squares from a swap at Quilt i norge, the norwegian forum I am a member in.
I was not too happy about the quilting on these, so I "forgot" about them for a long time. But I finally took the time and sewed on some binding the other day! And you know what? It was not too bad after all:) So now I have a new runner for my dining table and a tabletopper too:-)

Last projects in 2009 / first in 2010!

I did some sewing between Christmas and new year, not much, but I'll show you what I made.
This bag was a gift for a good friend who has her birthday on the 30'th of december. She loves green, so I just had to make her a bag in that colour:-)
She really liked it, so I hope she will make good use of it!

The mini quilt is my contribution in the "fall-inspired mini quilt swap" over at quilting gallery. I used a pattern from an old issue of "American patchwork and quilting" but changed it a little.

It has been sent to ??? today, I hope she likes it! It was fun making it...
