Yummy for me....

...Summers bliss...
Strawberries from the North of Sweden..
so much sweeter than other ones...
Grown under midnight sun...
they receive a special taste...
Nothing better!!!

This is what DH came home with last night...
Delicious Strawberries!!!!
... and the same day... some more "yummy" things came ...
fiesta for the eyes and mind!!!

Kim Diehls new book Simple Comfort...
and Folk Art Favourites from Joined at the Hip...
and a pattern....
Sweet Dreams...
Have waited so long for these ones to come...
but now they are here...
... have to read them a little bit more.. and decide what to make.. and WHEN!!!
The Sweet Dreams quilt I have seen on Sintas blog..and fell in love with it.. so
I ordered the fabrics in last blog entry to use for it...
Want some more home alone evenings... !!!!

A little sewing have been done...
needed to test sew my small 1 1/4" squares to something...
...and I chose nine patches..
Love them.. .
Think I will use this design... simple and easy...
don´t know if I will make it bigger.. or just make a little doll quilt!!!

See you...

  19. Very sweet nine patches. The strawberries look delicious.

  20. Oh, those strawberries look soooo good. We're past our season now so I'm a little sad. I'm very intrigued about how different strawberries grown under the midnight sun would be. It sounds wonderful...blissful even.

    I am resisting Kim Diehl's new book...but just barely. I'm not sure how much longer I can hold out.

  21. Stina, your heading with the strawberries looks fabulous. Such an intense colour and they look so luscious, mmmm

  22. Our strawberry season is almost over but I had a good helping a few times and also made some jam which should last through the winter. There's nothing like fresh strawberries!

    Love your little scrappy nine patches and enjoy your books too!

  31. Hello Stina, thank you for strawberries...we have a strawberry farm not far from where we live and we often go and pick our own......LOL....not many come home with your scrappy nine patch pattern...hugs lyn

  32. Stina, I love your little 9 patch, they are so tiny. Would be a great doll quilt.
    I think all of us quilters love the same books. They are wonderful.

    PS. I have to tell you I craved strawberry's with both my babies and they had a little strawberry in their hair. I told them it was because I ate so many.
