Here is the fabric book page I made for Lise in Norway. Lise's theme is "flowers". I made the background from woolfleece with the embellisher machine. The little crochet flowers are made by me, the white needlelace flowers I bought from Rengin's Etsy shop and the peach flowers are recylcing from a silk flowerplant ;) Below the page Janny from the Netherlands made for me with the theme: cottage garden. Both pages are 6", 15 cm square.
On the little plum tree in our garden are the plums ripe now. We picked them today and I have cut up 2 kg. to make jam. It smells delicious when it is hot and it taste delicious too on a slice of bread in the winter! There are more on the tree to eat the coming days ofcourse.
This block belongs to Margreet in the Netherlands. We are in a group together and do a "step by step round robin". That means that the first person sews the block, the second ( in this case me) does the basic stitches on every seam. The third person add more stitches to the basic stitches. The fourth person add items, such as lace items, sre, crochet, tatting etc. The fifth person add the beads and the sixth person the buttons and finishing touch. In the coming half year I have to work on four more blocks from the other participants in this RR. Above the naked block and below what I have added to it. In a few weeks it flies to the next person in the round robin.
Today my DH is fishing out there some place. On a little part of the Atlantic Ocean. The last days we have nice weather without much wind, so it is safe enough to go with the little ( 15 feet) boat. Yesterday he also fished. He fishes with a rod and got many fish, haddock, cod and this wolffish. Nine kilogram !!
Today I made Norwegain fiskekaker ( fish-burgers) of the good meat of the wolffish.
I have 39 pieces now. 36 in the freezer and 3 in the refrigerator for dinner tomorrow.
