Resting...reading and stitching...and some retrospects...

A nice cup of tea ...some resting....a little reading in a lovely magazine...some more resting...and quilting and stitching for a little time...some more rest...another cup of tea ...and blogreading... that is how my days is ...
Sounds absolutely wonderful...doesn´t it...
And they are... :)
My only wish is some more sewing....
I am slowingly cathing up on some sewing... it goes better day by day...
and hopefully I will soon be back as normal I can be...if it´s possible...;)

Woke up one day and said to myself...Stina... you can sew...don´t just overdo it...even it it is only 50 is 50 cm of wonderful quilting, stitching or this is my new motto!!
I can do it!!
And I am so happy for that!!

With not so much sewing in the house I started to think about my PIF´s...

My first PIF round I signed up on Chookyblue´s blog in March...and Marica and Leanne was the wild and brave womans who signed up for my first PIF...

My second PIF was signed up at Christine´s blog in March...and three lovely ladies Carey , Ulla and Jo signed up ...and I was "lazy" and made all five couch companions... you can see them here...
The sixth one I made for Pat as a thankyou... and you can see it here...
and from Christine I have received this lovely gift!! :L

My third PIF was signed up at Carey at BlueBerry Lane in April...
And ... Colleen and Laura...have received theirs ... Jo is still waiting for hers...but I promise it is soon on its way... ;)

So if any one is up for another round with
a new
PIF.... my fourth
...I am now announcing another one...this one I signed up at Colleens blog in MAY.. wow ...that was a long time ago...but I wanted to make the other ones finished before I announced this one...

And Colleen wanted to make something in wool for me ...perfect :) ...and this is what I got from her... :L

And this is the rules...
It’s the Pay It Forward Exchange. It’s based of the concept of the movie “Pay it Forward” where acts or deeds of kindness are done without expecting something in return, just passing it on, with hope that the recipients of the acts of kindness are passed on. So here’s how it works. I will make and send a handmade gift to the first 3 people who leave a comment to this post on the blog requesting to join this PIF exchange. I do not know what that gift will be yet, and it won’t be sent this month, probably not next month, but it will be sent (within 6 months) and that’s a promise! What YOU have to do in return, then, is pay it forward by making the same promise on your blog.

So if you are up to this... just let me know!!! :)


Wow ..this was fast...I already have three lovely people who wants to be a little brave and join my PIF!!!

  4. Okay, I think I'm up for this! Especially since I have 6 months...I'll need to get through the holidays probably! This should be fun!

  5. Ooooh, too bad : I'm too late again... it doesn't matter, I also wanted to wish you a prompt, complete recovery ;>)


  6. I have not

  7. Too bad I'm too late for your PIF, but what a good idea! So I decided to put it on my blog too. First time I'm into something like this, so I wonder what will happen.
    Hope to hear from you again.

  8. Hi Stina! I've just discovered that I'mm the 2nd for your PIF... WOW!! I'll have to think of launching mine too!!!

  9. Stina glad you are finding a little sewing OK to do. But don't overdue it. That's my next thing to work on our my PIF's I want them on their way by the end of November. Much later at getting to them than I had planned on. isn't that how it goes, LOL.

    Hugs - karen

  10. Oh darn, that's what I get for staying away from the computer to long. Would of loved to have participated in your PIF. Hope to catch you next time.
    Stina, "YOU CAN DO IT!!"
    Keep Stitchen-but don't hurt your fingers...

  11. Hey Stina what magazine is that your reading there? I love the bag on the cover.

  12. Hope you are mending well! Slow and sure. And I LOVE my PIF!

  13. Hej, det var min mamma som tipsade om din blogg, och om PIFen. Och det är ju för sent, men kul att du fick folk så snabbt!
    Dock har jag några funderingar som jag hoppas du kan hjälpa mig med. Har ju sett filmen Skicka Vidare, och mamsen tänkte göra en själv, med min hjälp. Så jag undrar, om jag skickar presenter till tre, och hoppas på att dom gör goda saker för några andra, får man göra vad man vill?
    Så att det inte måste vara pyssel-relaterat, då din blogg verkar handla rätt mycket om pyssel. :) (Kanske är en självklar sak, men ibland är jag smått förvirrad, så det är lättast att fråga, så blir det inte fel sen)

    Ha en bra dag,

  14. Is a generous exchange. I accept. when we have to send gifts? the first three from the list or get around?
    Stina thanks! ento is good for the heart

  15. ohhh nif nif
    i'm late !!!!
    so for the next time maybe ???

    have a good week end !!!

    I love so much your blog !!!

  16. I am glad you are able to do even just a little bit, I feel the same way with stitching when I am working full timeand don't get as much time as i'd like, a little bit is better than none at all!

  17. Hi Stina! :o)
    Thanks so much for popping by my commented on my pincushion with the rose in the middle...Go for it girl...I'm glad you're inspired :o)
    Isn't that what it's all about!!

    Make sure you post and let me know when you're done...I'd love to see what you do with yours. HUGS!!!!

    I've seen your work for a while now and it's lovely!!
    BTW, I have not idea what PIF is. What is it?
    I love the idea of your pay it forward :o) so gracious and so ...'Quilty' :o)
    Have a wonderful day Stina...I'm so glad you popped by.

  18. Lovely visit to your blog , Stina, thanks - and thanks for visiting me.
    The PIF sounds a great idea@
    Hugs - Lurline!

  19. I'm glad you are sewing again, even if it is only 50 cm, it is better than no sewing at all!
    I wonder what I did wrong with my PIF on my blog, NOBODY signed in!....I will give it another try, who knows this time?...
    Have a great weekend!
