1  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Dancing 9-patchs on: February 11, 2015 07:51:22 AM
A destashing project I worked on for most of 2014. I used Bonnie Hunters tutorial for 'dancing 9-patch', and really liked the design.
It is warm and lovely here in the wintertime.

And the backside:

2  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Quilt for Jessica on: February 11, 2015 07:42:23 AM
Here is a quilt, which turned out rather different than planned. It is for a dear friend of mine, and I have worked on it for over a year. Mostly because I had to redo most of it several times  Embarrassed. At last I hope she will like the result.
  At first I wanted to make 'A trip around the world' quilt, but it was impossible for me to match all those corners, so I decided to make a simpler design by separating the blocks with solid triangles.   
  Jessica likes red and purple, but I found it needed some contrast to set it of. So I decided on triangles in blue/teal as well as pink. I played around with it a bit, and decided at last to have the blue in the middle and the pink around the edge.
  The quilt was meant as a destashing project, but I had to bye the blue/teal fabric.

A graduation gift for my very sweet and clever niece:

And a close-up:

The top is hand-sewn, and it is machine-quilted. I hope you like it.
4  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Granny blancket on: February 11, 2012 06:16:10 AM


Here is my granny blanket, made of scrap yarn. I started years ago, found out I hadn't scraps enough - and even if it is cheating, I bought some extra yarn  Embarrassed - and finally finished it. My daughter liked it very much, so I gave it to her as a Christmass present.
5  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Portrait of an old couple on: April 04, 2010 07:26:09 AM

Here is a picture I made some time ago. I call it: "Grandma and Grandpa at the photographer"  Grin . The heads are made of nylon stockings, stuffed with synthetic quilting cotton.
6  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Table cloth on: April 04, 2010 07:04:18 AM

Here is a cloth I made for my coffee-table. Then I can dream of summer and roses...
7  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / A deer in the kitcheen on: March 02, 2010 06:13:21 AM

Here are the curtain for my kitchen-window. I made it in filet-chrocheting. It might be a little old-fashioned, but I love it, both making it, and the sight of it from the parking-place a dark winter-evning.

8.5.2010: Maria Merlino have charted the pattern and uploaded it for everyone to use: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=346201.msg4029771#msg4029771

I would love to see, if anybody else made the pattern!
8  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Pillow of wisdom on: February 23, 2010 07:59:46 AM

I love to find old handcrafted stuff at fleamarkets and secondhand shops. But how to use them in a modern home with no bell wires or table runners?
I made this pillow of an needlepointed bell wire, the back of a shirt and some vintage fabric, my sister gave me.
When resting my head on it, I hope the wisdom from the bell wire seeps into me  Grin. It is in Danish, and says: teach yourself, while you live, to love, to forget and forgive
