Going away and a thankyou....

Think I´m in love with my mailman!!! This came in the mail today from
the one and only...Karen.... I became so happy I just sat and cried...glad I was alone.... :)
She knew I fell in love with the wonderful pincushion she made for me...so she bought the pattern and then she sent me a little prepared kit for one pincushion...In WOOL...she knows I have trouble finding it here in Sweden...
....THANKYOU.... :L
...Not much sewing these last days...moved out my oldest daughter from her apartment...helped her clean that one up...and family time...
...managed to finish the label for the summer swap quilt....

...and Linda ...she teases me all the time with lovely pictures of mine to be "Cup cakes" thing she´s making... so this one is for you Linda...
...some pictures from the garden... Iris...

...and look at this...I swear that...the lupins were not pink last year...it´s magic!! Maybe I´m senile...and don´t remember...
...they are both pink and purple...I love them soo... :)
Tomorrow we will go away for some days and visit our parents...that will be some fun...my brother is there with his children ... so we will have a lot to catch up on... and I have prepared some stitcheries to bring along...and Linda...I have with me your "Cup Cakes" too...
I wish for you all some lovely days and I see you on Sunday...
