While Bernie is in "hospital"

Last weekend I had big plans for sewing up as storm, I had been at it for about an hour when Bernie just decided to stop - I couldn't move the needle no matter what I tried. So rather than sewing I got a trip to the shop, handing him in, getting the message it could take anything from two weeks to a month before I get him back :(

So my quilting this week has been all hand work - I have spent a few days at the summerhouse, so I brought my blue/white SBS, hoping I would finally get it finished! Not quite there yet, but I can definitely see the end of the road.


Stopping by my parents' house on my way home I borrowed their sewing machine to get the binding attached, so my plan this weekend is to get the last two and a half triangles quilted, the binding sewn down at the back, and the labels appliquéd onto the back. Can be done?

Oh, and I have to share this - my Mum and I have been talking for ages about making nettle soup, and this year we actually got around to turning this:


Into this:



Yummmmy! And t think this is a weed who stings you when you touch it ;o)

Den blå quilten din er nydelig og fortjener å bli gjort ferdig. Jeg syns oppriktig synd på deg som må gå dagene i møte ute din kjære Bernie. Kan nesten ikke tenke meg å ikke ha symaskin tilgjengelig hele tiden. Godt man er alsidig og kan finne frem håndsøm :o))
Nestle suppe både høres og ser digg ut, har aldri smakt suppen selv men kunne godt tenkt meg å smake. Ønsker deg en riktig fin helg!

Teppet ditt ser lekkert ut, og det var jo synd maskinen streiket før du fikk det ferdig. Håper Bernie snart er frisk igjen! Trodde først det var skilpadda som hadde skiftet navn, før jeg så at det var maskinen som hadde fått 'gubbe'-navn....
Ha en fin helg! :-)))

Den blå ser nydeleg ut - det same med neslesuppa - utruleg at noko så utriveleg som brennenesle kan verte så godt!

God bedring til Bernie :)
OG neslesuppe, det er det lenge siden jeg spiste, men husker at det smaker bare helt nydelig godt.

Oh I do hope that Bernie is home soon and much better......

Looks like you got a lot accomplished in spite of your troubles.

And didn't I see the Strawberry Fields Quiltalong on your sidebar.

Yes, I need to make one of those too.

Alt til sin tid, maskinen trengte ferie;) Delikat suppe, smakte den like godt som den så ut:)
