The sun shines ...the sky is clear blue and just a a couple of degrees cold...
I can feel it....
Spring is on its way!!!! :)

And I have spent some hours in my sewingroom... and actually
Oh Happy Days!!

Last week I did some shopping... have looked for pink and brown repro fabrics...
So thankyou Kathie for the tip to this shop!!
My first ones...
...and finally in my stash... ahmmm... do I need to say something ...
I have started to collect something new here...
Now I only need to find shirtings... and maybe some blues and greens got the point you... :D

Bought a new book...and I love this one...´s a Norweigan book (but mine is in swedish) by Gerd Gellein Merkesdal...
and it have so many lovely things for me to make ...

Today I got threads in the mail...
...from Karen at Farmhouse Woolens...
for me to test on my Wool Garden...
some new threads for this will be exciting...
Thankyou so much Karen!!! >:D<

And I have sewn my "Bunny Tales" quilttop together... :)
Hope to start some stitching on it soon!!
Will have to wait to take photos of that one...until I have stiched some...


  1. Give me your scoop on thread--- totally no experience in thread guidelines. Love the fabrics--- are you planning a specific quilt with these? Sounds like you been busy....

  2. Hej Stina,
    Those Judie Rothermel's Charleston V fabrics are gorgeous... I have also purchased few of them...

  3. The pink and brown reproduction fabric color combo has been a favorite of mine for a long time. You got a nice selection. Do you have a project in mind?

  4. What wonderful shopping you have done. Is that Auriful wool thread? I've heard that is just dreamy to work with. By the time I was ready to try some, my shop stopped carrying it. I should order some from Karen.

  5. I'd love to get the pinks and browns and I want (need) some shirtings as well. Are you planning something or are you stash building?

  6. oh love those fabrics don't you , love pink and brown!
    how do you like those threads, make sure you let us all know..

  7. Great shopping you've done! I've never seen that thread before...what kind is it?

  8. Oh dear, what loveley fabrics! You know perhaps that I love repros, and have a nice collection already, I can hardly use them, they are so wonderful. Thank you for the link to this fantastic shop! I defenitely will give it at least one try....!

  9. Looks like a great shopping day!! The fabrics are beautiful, the book looks fun and it's my favorite thread....Yes, it is a great shopping day!

  10. Don't you just love shopping and getting great new things? I love the fabrics and that the book you purchased looks fantastic! Hope you have a wonderful week.

  11. Yeah! I'm so glad you received the fabrics! Thank you for the link!Tara

  12. Spring....that must be music to your ears the new and browns how good do they go together...

  13. Love those colours Stina...What a good shopping day you have had...looks like a great book too. Have lots of fun choosing your projects!!!

  14. Those fabrics are wonderful! I am also saving repro pinks and browns. I am sure I could probably make a quilt out of the ones I already have collected, but I want a lot of variety :o) Yours are beautiful!

  15. Glad to see the sore hand hasn't stopped you shopping LOL. Those fabrics look great together. I will be interested to hear how those threads go.

  16. Hey Stina! So pleased spring is starting to creep closer for you - it will take you a little while to thaw out after such a cold, snowy winter! And what better way to cheer up in time for spring than to SHOP!! Tee! Hee! Hee! Your book looks like it would be great just to look at, not to mention the hours of stitching fun you'll have. Can't wait to see what you create - carefully to protect your poor recovering finger! :0) Bear Hugs! KRIS

  17. I love the fabrics you bought! And the book looks so interesting, I have one from the same author and I like her ideas too. Lovely little parcel, hope you can show us your stichting! Have a great weekend!

  18. Love your blog! Your "strangest day" story was very interesting. Once, about 20 years ago, my husband and I were driving home on the highway, when I got a bad feeling that something was going to go wrong. I told him about it and asked him to be extra careful. He was like, OK... Within a quarter of a mile our timing belt broke and the car died at the side of the road. Now he thinks I'm psychic. It *does* happen to people occasionally. 8)

    Happy stitching,

  19. BTW I meant to add, I love the picture you have in your blog banner. It's very cool. What is it?


  20. Hi Stina,

  21. Those fabrics are yum yum yummy Stina - not sure why, but I just love the pink and brown fabrics, but have yet to start a collection - hmmmm maybe soon, LOL. Glad you got the thread. I'm going to start a redwork project using the red Sulky.

    Hugs - Karen
