Nothing but UFO's in 2013 - February

Can you believe it is February already? Where did January go?
Carrie from A Passion for Applique is hosting the UFO challenge 2013.



Well, it is time to show what I'm going to work on this month. Since I didn't manage to finish any of the intended projects last month, I will continue working on the same ones...  

UFO #1 - Colorado Star quilt.
The plan was to quilt it last month, but when I pulled out the batting I discovered it wasn't enough. Now I have got more batting and hope to finish it this month.

 
UFO #2 - The New York Beauty quilt
All the blocks are done and I have only a few left to be pieced together. The plan is to quilt it this month too.
 
 
UFO #3 - so far no name
I'm pulling this one out again! Did nothing to it last month, except from pulling out more fabric from the shelf. I hope to finish the top this month....
 
 
Hot and humid here these days - we are at the peak of summer - rainy-and cyclone season. The last week we have had wonderful cloudy and rainy weather from cyclone 'Felleng'. Yes, I say wonderful, because it cools it down a bit. It also feels wonderful, because this kind of weather means no gardening! Not that I mind gardening, I love it,  but not when it's wet! :) I can snuggle up in front of the sewing machine, sew and drink hot cocoa or coffee! :)

Lykke til med quiltingen!
Jeg fikk lyst til å lage flere NYB-blokker da jeg så dine. Har såvidt forsøkt på slike for en del år siden...

Ha en strålende tirsdag.
