Colorado Springs...

...Not this view... :(
...this is Sweden...view from my sewingroom... nice isn´t it!!!
The rain just pours down...
...glad I´m inside...
but the mailman had a package for me...from Colorado Springs... :)
...it was my Four Seasons Quilt Swap " Summer" from Joanna... I thought this one was lost too... but it showed up ...
...Joanna used some of my favourite fabrics from 3 sisters in this one... they are pretty ...isn´t they...I love it... and thanks for the boats...might need them if the rain doesn´t stop...
This one is already hung up over my bed....
Thankyou so much Joanna for your lovely quilt!!!

Yesterday Linda had her birthday...and we celebrated that with dinner at a thai restaurant...and as always...Mmmmm...it was good... And after that her friends came over for tea and some nice chocolatcake... No I didn´t bake it...and I didn´t use my new apron...SORRY!!!! Have to be better on this... :)
But I did manage to sew a....
....little bag to Lindas new cellphone...
....a clever pattern from Anne-Pia Godske Rasmussen ... it is in her new book...
...even my youngest daughter wanted one...so I better get out some black fabrics for her... :)

Linda is on her train for her new destination and will arrive tomorrow at noon...
and I miss her!!!! But I know she´s already having a good time...chatting with her passengers and with new goals ahead!! Love you... :L and please....

  2. Stina, the little quilt you recieved it so nice. I can tell you are proud of it. I love the bag you made for the cell phone. I took a peek at the book you mentioned. Beautiful projects, but I would have an awful time reading it. I don't know the swedish language at all.

  5. Hi Stina,
    I don't know what it is about the rain, but I love to sew when it rains and we have had a lot. Tomorrow 70%-gotta sew.
    Is this the first time Linda has left? My son's first year of college, after we dropped him off, 5 hours away, I cried all the home. My eyes were so swollen the next day, it was really bad. But then he would come home with all of his dirty laundry and I say, "When are you leaving?"...you know I love him.
    Hope you get a lot of stitchen' done.
    Hugs,
    Bonnie
