On my way to work....

I have to admit, I am not fond of fall. When I am having a dark period, like I have had for a while now, fall becomes even more sinister. It is the prelude to winter, after all. Winter, which in this country means you don't really see daylight much during the work week. It is dark when you leave for work, and dark when you leave work. No hourlong daily lunches in Norway:)

Sometimes I force myself to notice positive things with fall. This morning, for instance, the morning sun spread gold over the ground as I walked through the Royal Park on my way to work.
And the ducks waddled around. Don't they leave for warmer parts now?

As for crafts - it is the beginning of the Christmas gift making period, and nothing much I can show on the blog! Though I have now started to cut these fabrics, so that I can hopefully make myself the Alpine star quilt. A little bit of colour and cheerfulness during the long winter. Never knew how much TIME it takes to cut all the fabric for one quilt all at once, though! Still not done....

With regards to the previous post - the quilts made is for my new webshop! I decided to try to do something with all I make, so I opened a little store through a Norwegian webshop for handmade stuff. I figured it was a good way of celebrating my 49th:)

You can visit the store on this link: Lenes Lines. There is also a link on the right side. Only in Norwegian, at the moment.

I celebrated my birthday by visiting my aunt and uncle deep in the woods. We went for a long walk with the dogs in the beautiful fall weather.

Stepping forward

Here is my weekend.
Sewing bindings on seven quilts. Sorry about the blandness of the colour, but Sunday gave us greyness and rain, hard to get good pictures.

I have big-ish plans for these quilts. A little scary, too, but it seems to be the step foward I need to take. I have procrastinated long enough. It should have happened last fall, I have to get my guts together and do. I just have to..... do some other stuff first. hehe:)

At least I am closer now.

I have lots of stuff on 'the wallpaper' as we say in Norway - in process, but this is christmas stuff time, and I can't show much. So frustrating....
