Progress @ Borlänge Sycentrum!

So we've been working away all day Borlänge Sycentrum, carrying, building, ordering a ton of beautiful fabrics, and we're slowly getting closer to the big day!

We started out with getting this loaded and unloaded today, and it's just a little of it, you'll get to see on Thursday what we ended up with =)

Trust me when I say, trying to get these into nice and manageable rolls, is not all that fun! :-P

But it's is sort of doable *beams with pride*

And most importantly, we laugh and laugh! It's so much fun!

Building a Quilt Fabric and Sewing Machine Store!

Despite the best intentions of getting back in the swing of things here with sewing and blogging, life has recently shown that it doesn't always let everything go according to plan. However, I'm happy to say: Stuff is happening now! Pink things! =D

My mother and her husband is opening up a brick and mortar quilt fabric and sewing machine store this very week! Borlänge Sycentrum (situated in Borlänge Centrum in Sweden) will open it's doors on the 1st of October! So I'm currently in Sweden helping out and having a blast, despite the hard work and late hours =)

It's slowly taking shape now, sorry for the poor quality images, it's from my phone.

I've been folding a ton of adorable FQ bundles! =)

And we've been having so much fun! Major changes are coming and I've actually been sewing a lot lately, so much exciting news to come soon <3

Necessary Clutch Wallet - Fancy Version

I just love this wallet/clutch! Such a pretty and easy to follow pattern from Emmaline Bags. This is the first one I made and my fancy clutch for when I go out ^^

You can read a bit more about it here from my first post about this pattern: Everyday Necessary Clutch

Love the interior! All the little card slots and pockets, it's perfect! Choose the fabric so I'd always get a little happy chock from the pink and the silver stars, which contrasts quite a  bit from the classy outside =)

Free Motion Quilting Practice - Borders

I've had to practice some more FMQ before I dared to start quilting the borders of my quilt.  It was so much fun to be doing feathers again! =D

Here I'm starting to be happy with the results, please excuse the "ugly fabric", I tend to try use up the non pretty ones for these things ^^

It was quite difficult to get back in the swing of things and it was more then a little wonky to start with ^^

Back to Quilting!

First I got my little stash in order and got my Ikea Benno DVD shelves up. I'm so happy to have my little rainbow back up! =D

Secondly I realised that I was terribly out of practice when it came to FMQing, so I brought out a test piece and played a little. It was embarrassing at first but I quickly got somewhat back in the swing of things. Sorry for the bad photo, it's late ^^

And I actually have been nibbling away at my totally psyched project! I love this new pattern I have in the works so much and I can't wait to share it with you all! =D

A Brand New Life!

My personal life has undergone some major changes this past year and due to these among other things, not much sewing has been possible for me sadly. Which has resulted in me banking a million and one ideas for new patterns and things I want to create, which is fantastic now that my life finally permits it!

My sewing machine is finally with me again and the sewing table arrived a few days ago now, it's an Ikea Malm. The lovely flowers are from my new love with whom I just celebrated 5 months with! <3 It's a really tiny (but adorable) one bedroom flat we live in now so the table is squeezed in between the kitchen counter and the sofa ^^

And yesterday I retrieved my Ikea Benno shelfs and I could finally unpack my fabrics! I'm so happy!! They will very soon been filled with a rainbow these FQ's and half yards that I now have refolded and sorted, I was so ridiculously happy to finally be playing with my fabrics again!

I just can't wait to start creating again! =D

My mother has opened a brand new Swedish quilting store!

I'm so immensely proud of and excited for my mother who has the blog evas syrum. She has just opened her online quilt fabric store in Sweden. I know that most of my readers aren't Swedish but I just had to share this anyway, I'm so happy for her! =D

She's also hosting a giveaway with a chance to win 2 Moda Scrap Bags! These seem to be such an awesome thing, I really can't wait to get my hands on my first!

Please feel free to hop over for a chance to win (you can use the translation gadget if you don't speak Swedish)! I literally couldn't be more excited for my awesome mom! <3

She prices all her fabric the same, it's 155 SEK per meter, other then the Kona Solids that are 115 SEK per meter so it's really easy to shop there. She also has some really cute little FQ bundles and some other pre-cuts. You can order as little as 10 centimeters of a fabric should you wish.  =)
