Louise (No blog)...and a little peek for someone...

This is how it goes when someone doesn´t have a BLOG and takes up Peg´s Challenge...you need to get yourself someone who wants to show your stuf at a blog!!!
And of course (even if I think she should have a blog so that we all can see all her fantastic quilts)...I was happy to support my friend Louise...when she was in need for some space in the cyberworld!!
Or maybe you think I made these wonderful quilts????
This Log Cabin she have been working on for 8 years...so that was a good one coming out of the closet...don´t you think... I love this one... since it´s on my blog ..it´s mine !!! :)
Weedwhacker...all brand new this spring ...from a pattern at Quiltville... oh this one is so Louise...vibrant colours...and yet so balanced...love it...so It´s mine too!!! :)
Oh my ...she has been finishing two quilts for Peg´s Challenge...congratulations Louise!!!
And more is coming!!!











We will have to wait for the strawberries in the north of Sweden for a while longer...but it´s looking good..Ok..it´s my neighbours...mine is not a pretty sight...
We moved them this year...and don´t think they recovered yet... :(
DH is having vacation... so there is a lot of things he wants to finish NOW...not tomorrow... Ok have to agree ...thats good ...but I need to sew!!! But on that ear he doesn´t listen at all..just mumbling a lot of mumbo jumbo... So when I lost my flowerbed I said I wanted to make something where we had the vegetables and strawberries... So I came up with an idea of moving the fireplace to this spot...and make something nice of it... and out came a lot mumbo jumbo again...but after some hard work .....it´s finished...with the hay drying rack that I love!!! :) Just need some new benches... guess it will be alright...it´s not so much sun here...a lot of shade from our neighbours house...the strawberries didn´t like it... So I guess we can spend some time here instead :)
...and this is for you Linda.... a little peek of what I might use in the Cup Cake Swap... so If you don´t like it...Yell...high ...so I can hear it all the way to Sweden!!! :)

  3. Hi Stina,
    You make sure and let Louise know that her quilts are gorgeous. I can just see you in your little area doing hand stitching and a fire going.
    Your colors for what you are making Linda go so well together, you do have an eye for putting it all together. Can you email me your address, I wanted to send the little one something.
    Have a Gooooood Day,
    Bonnie

  5. Well, if I'm following along correctly - I think that strawberry should be yours, too *s*
    Louise's finishes are great. Easy to see why you would want to keep them for yourself.`

  9. Hello Stina,
    I love the way you think. Now I need to find some one that needs to show their quilt pictures, and then I will own the quilt. Sounds fair to me. The log cabin quilt is really pretty. I made one of the weedwhacker quilts. It wasn't as pretty as your friends, and by the time I finished it I was really sick of it. It got really boring. I laughed when you said how you talked to your hubbie and he talks mumbo jumbo. You are so funny! I love reading your blog. TTFN..Lilly
