Update....

Hey...
Beware..long post!!!!
I´m still here...
Time really flies too fast during Summer...

To work also has its part..
but everything goes really well...

In fact my job is perfect...
work at a recycle place where I shall be in charge of
the fabrics...
and try to keep them organized and also make up new products to sew..
well that isn´t my strongest side...
but I think I will have lots of fun!!

But the work also have a good thing...
or DH think something else... wonder why???
I find lots and lots of things...
so Is this Bargains or Junk????
*Found one perfect storage... Widget locker for my threads... 20 kr ( $ 2.73)
all I have to do is to wind the threads on bobbins...pheeww...

*One big Chip Basket... free
perfect storage for unwashed fabrics...
pheeww... need to do this!!

And it was perfect when having Seved here..
we used that one moving him in the sun to sunbath him...
so his yellowness would go down...

*One wooden Laundry basket... 10 kr ($1.36)
well couldn´t resist it..

And add a wooden bench outside for 20 kr
which we used at the party we attended two weeks ago...
Definitely Bargains.. I would say!!!

The weekend was filled with Tennis
High temps in Sweden..
and what a perfect name on the tournament...Riviera!!! Perfect...
Singles and Doubles for Viktor didn´t go too well...
but he had fun...
But most fun he had with these guys...
Final in Generations Double...
Second place...and a new trophy!!
The sweaty one is my DH....
guess he worked hard...
Viktor he said.. wow.. I am little!!!! But I´m good!!!

I warned you..long post...
maybe its time for a cup of tea ...

Kindness among bloggers....

After admiring Ingrids wonderful Needle case and Sewing Case...
she wrote to Cathy Penton (The designer)...
and asked if she had any patterns left..but no ...
but she agreed to make a copy for me..
and do I have to say I´m in heaven!!!
The Needle Case and the Scissor Case are so so lovely...
and Ingrid also sent lovely fabrics ..lovely stripe fabric!!!
So first of all thanks to Cathy for letting me have a copy

and THANKYOU INGRID...
for arranging this for me!!!

And this ...
is amazing...

After writing on a blog admiring bobbins...
just out of the blue an offer landed at my place
to send me my first Bobbin...
WHAT???
I sure didn´t get that at first...
My eyes just blinked and had to write and ask again...
And no she wasn´t kidding me...
So last week it landed in my mailbox!!!!
And the lovely sender was ...
Linda...
Take a look at her wonderful blog...
lots and lots of antiques!!!
Thankyou Linda!!!


Are you still here....
while talking about a lot of Lindas....
I hop on over to another Linda...
my lovely found friend on the other side of the world...
who have shown me such generosity..
sending stitchers package..and fabrics ..and you name it!!!
She also was my last PIF recipient...
This is what I made for her...
Good luck in your move Linda...
hope your new place will be wonderful!!!

Pheeww...
this was it...
Well almost...
Since I now are without PIF recipients..
I couldn´t resist signing on at Marys PIF for some time ago...
April I think... am I right Mary???

Sooo MARY!!!!
Here you go... I am f inally announcing my new PIF...
so now you can send me mine....
Sorry ..couldn´t resist writing that!!!

EDIT!!!!
Got my three new ladies to send to...
check my sidebar for links...


So..If you are up to it:
Here is the RULES!!!

The concept of a PIF occurs when acts of kindness are performed without expecting anything in return and are passed on, trusting that the recipients will do the same and Pay It Forward, resulting in a never ending chain of kindness.

By signing on, my commitment is to make and send a gift to the first 3 friends who post a comment to this post requesting to join this exchange and who promise to Pay It Forward to 3 other persons, and so on.
At this time, I don't know what my 3 gifts will be, but I can promise you a gift made by me and from my heart that I will send to you within the next 365 days. By signing on, what YOU then have to do in return is to Pay It Forward by making the same announcement and commitment on YOUR blog.

I hope you'll join me!

Thanks for being with me all the way!!!
Told you it was long!!!
See you!!

  3. Hey Stina!! Now, everyone teases ME about long posts, but I think you've joined the "Mile Long Post" Club! Tee! Hee! Hee! Besides ... we loved hearing about your adventures, so feel free to post long LOTS! Love the goodies you've received and sent - especially that cute dolly you sent to Linda - saw it on her blog too - too cute! Glad your work is going well ... I say "Bargains", not "Junk" - bet my beloved is glad I don't work somewhere like that or "bargains" would follow me home too! Tee! Hee! Hee! Bear Hugs! KRIS

  4. I am curious to know how the place where you work gets their materials for recycling.
    I saw the quilt you gave to Linda when she posted it on her blog. I love the willow tree!

  18. Hi Stina!

    *Beware, long comment* lol

    ooooh, I finally got some time to visit my favourite Svedish blogging buddy (*hiiii sweetie, missed to read your blog & chat with you*) and then I'm too late for your PIF *sniff* ~ only some hours too late *double sniff* ;o).

    You really found some great treasures - junk definitely doesn't fit! In Germany, we have a (nonstandard) saying: Was dem Einen sin Uhl, is' dem anderen sin Nachtigall means:...one man's meat is antother man's poison...;o).

    Congrats to your men to the second place!

    Wow, you're such a lucky girl. I've ben searching for these bobbins for a while now - it seems everybody has at least one!

    A second, even bigger WOW for your PIF gift! It's gorgeous & I'm sure Linda will treasure it!!

    Big hugs,
    Julia

    P.S.: Seved is beyond cute! A heartfelt belated welcome to the world from me to him...

  20. Hei!! Så hyggelig at du her vært innom bloggen min!! Jeg kommer inte ihåg hvor jeg fant mønsteret til veska. Selve applikasjonen har jeg nok funnet i en japansk bok. Det er litt lenge siden. Men den ble fin når den endelig ble ferdig!! Du lager også mye fint!!Hilsen AnneK
