No words...

I have no words to describe the horrible act of terror that was made this friday in Oslo and in Utoya...

My thoughts goes to the people affected by this, parents, friends and family.

I light candles for the victims.

Time for some swapping!

I joined several swap's over at Flickr, and this is the first one finished.

In the "Pretty Little Pouch swap 2" I got a wonderful partner, and I think she will like this. It's a small pouch (5"x 8"), and I loved making it!

This is the back of the pouch. Sorry about the ugly piece of paper on it, but there's a name behind it. I don't want to spoil the surprise, just in case she happens to read my blog.

This is the front.

I made half of a Dresden plate from scraps and sewed it on a very rough piece of linen (from IKEA).

The pattern I used is the Keyka Lou Inset Zip Pouch, but I gave it my own twist.

The zipper came from my grandmothers stash, I'm so happy I can use the things from her. I added a colorful piece of ribbon to the zipper pull.

I hope my partner will like this as much as I do! It's been a very fun pouch to sew, and I enjoyed using linen.

Now I'm off to find some goodies to put in the pouch! I think I have a couple of things in mind:-)
