I'm happy to see you again!

I can hardly understand that there is so long since I wrote.
I have been focused on my training for the race in Göteborg.
I had to be in shape for a half maraton.
Running...running..sweat and hard work!

             ......and I managed to make a better result than last year...I'm quite happy with that :)

BUT..... now I'm eager to sew...long for it!

So today is a perfect day!

Actually I went home to dig in the garden after work today.
But .. there was rain, clouds and thunder...or was it ash from the volcanic eruption in Iceland?
Sooo..it wasn't hard to rethink and
continue my project in the studio :)

The top made of Kaffe Fasset fabrics is finished and now there is some decisions to make.

I tried out some different fabrics and colors for the border.

Purple or orange?

Maybe a green one with a more challenging design?

What do you think?

No sewing!

         Painting...cleaning....fabric to new curtins....planting...and so on.

Isn't it fantastic!.......a hole week free from work and no sewing. How did it happen?
I haven't even opened the door to the studio. Remarkable! I must be crazy!

Have you been there too......all the things you have to do?

It is more than two years ago we moved in to our house and still some painting left to do around the windows. Maybe this week wasn't the best choice to stay indoors painting but it seemed like now or never!

Soo....you can imagine how my days have looked like by looking at the pictures.

But...but somewhere, I'm still happy with everything that have been fixed and the sewing machin stand there and wait like a faithful old friend...I'm longing!

.....and hey, I have been running nearly 50 km this week...Göteborgs varvet here I come!

Yours Margreth
