Patchwork Tuesday


One baby girl quilt for sale.
Feel free to email me if you are interested.





13,5 x 13,5 cm squares for a new quilt.
It's not a baby quilt this time, so I need a lot of squares:-)




...later the same day -
165 squares are now ready to mix and match.
It took me some time to get so far.

Monday


A few hours home alone in the kitchen.
I enjoy the hand sewed part of the needle books.
Every single stitch.




When the needle book is done, I will go for a walk, alone.
This Monday is a damn good day.

A month of giving


My friend, Vibeke, celebrates March with
"A Month of giving" and she invited me to join.

I hope, you see you there!

A Butterfly in my Hair is one of my favorite blogs -
it's worth visiting.

Paper and paint


A gift from my friend, Marie-Louise (you find her on instagram too, malou_djuurhuus).
She is a great inspiration to me, when it comes to paper work.




Marie-Louise told me about Ashley Godberg, Studio Calico, so now I'm also playing with paint and paper.




I decided to buy the paint.plan.play online classroom
 at Studio Calico.

It's a new world to me and it's fun.
I can't wait to try embossing, thanks for inspiring me, M-L.

Feel free to share tips or inspiration for paper work, painting, stamping and more.

Knit Inspiration


I have added new yarn to my stash.
A good friend of mine invited me to dye yarn with her.
This is my first collection - I hope, it's not the last one!
The bright colours remind me of the upcoming spring time!




I have knitted a vest for a cute little boy named August.
I like to add a little contrast detail, so I used neon orange thread for the buttons.



For my birthday last week my hubby surprised me with a gift from a new Danish knit and crochet company named Kit Couture.
I got the most wonderful red scissor and some knitting needles.

I'm already a big fan of Kit Couture. Their style is so simple and delicate.



I better finish the sweater on the knitting needles, so I can start a new project. 

I'm knitting a sweater from Sandnes, magazine 1414 Tweed & Co.
I knit with dark blue and grey yarn - I need a spring project in cheerful colours.

If you are looking for knit inspiration, you should have a look at Sandnes website. There's a lot of inspiring new knit magazines.

Do you have some knit inspiration, you want to share....?

Yarn de-stashing


Hello, my name is Mette,
I'm an yarn addict......
I have boxes and baskets full of yarn in different colors and fibers.
I often buy yarn with no purpose in mind.
It must stop!



I don't have a lot of WIP's and UFO's,
I prefer one knit project at a time.



Since December I have knitted a sweater, a hat, a scarf and 6 pairs of socks - all knitted of yarn from stash.
Totally approx. 1,2 kg yarn.
Honestly, it feels damn good!


I have decided to continue my yarn de-stashing -
do you wanna join me...?

There are no rules, but your own.

I hope to keep the knit mojo and de-stash with some knitted gifts in mind. It's an easy way to great gifts and it's such pleasure.

Workshop


A few (...blurry..) pictures from the workshop at my home last weekend 
- (how to finish and bind a quilt).
It was such a great day!



Knot quilting with cotton yarn.


Yeeha, put on the gloves and quilt freestyle!


A lot of tips and how tos -
I can't wait to see the quilts after the binding.
