Sneak Peek and quilting

Some progress was made in the sewingroom... ;)
...I compleated my top for the Four Seasons Quilt Swap...
good to have it in progress...need to think a little of how to quilt it...
handquilt or not... colour of thread ...AND HOW!!!
Will have it on the wall for some days and hope I can come up with something...
...while wondering on the quilting for the little summerquilt...I took up another quiltingproject...My Quilter´s Journey...I know it´s not finished yet...think I promised this spring...and can´t say it spring now ...even if it´s cold...
...I love to quilt with perle cotton thread...really like the look of it...
And have worked so I only have one block left now... Woo hoooooo!!
Think I made a promise not to start my Butterfly Garden until this one is ready...and that promise I have kept!! At least that is something... ;)

Joined Sharon´s Cup Cake Swap the other day in a moment of weakness...or maybe it´s not...I don´t know...Deadline for that one is the 18th of August ...
Aaarrggghhh...I´m absolutely out of my mind...!!
Right in the middle of our vacation plans...and my daughters move ...pheew...need a secretary soon to keep track on my commitments!!!
Happy Stitching to you all...

    I am loving your quilters journey, I like to use perle thread to embroider and quilt with, I like its 'shiny-ness'.. having said that, I haven't quilted anything for such a long time, I send stuff on quilty holidays with long armers!
