How lucky can a girl be????
Look what I won at Bonnie´s place...
...Spring Giveaway...
Just the word makes me happy...
These fabrics are sooo lovely... and they are perfect in my home...
and better up... I love tea too...
I think Im the happiest girl on earth...
Bonnie have made a wonderful work on this tablerunner...
choosing lovely fabrics..the embroidery...and the quilting... and the finish...
LOVE IT!!!
Bonnie...you made my day....Thankyou thankyou so much

Ohh.. now I can make a inquiry here...
don´t know if you see the fabric Bonnie have used as
background fabric in the blocks...
cream fabric with tiny pink, blue or yellow dots...
Is there anyone out there who knows if this fabric can be found somewhere???
Have searched for this kind of fabric to use for a BOM I have in mind and wanted those fabrics for stitchery...
Earlier this week I got my pattern from Kellie at Don´t Look now...
...will be fun to try this one out...
And today I bought some yarn to start to crochet some hexagons...or granny squares...
havent decided yet...and I couldnt decide on the colours either
so I bought the ones I liked most...
Dont know if I want to make in just one colour or many...
And this is what I have sewed on this week...
..Looks like I have baked some bread...
Secrets...so you who knows...

Hope you all will have a great weekend...

Easter part two ...

Okey...kidding here comes part two...two post today instead...
Easter Day...
The weather was incredible...
from its best side...
And it was time for the Yearly Ski Race...
Nine brave skiers...
and some officials...ready to help the ones that needed help...
...youngest 2 1/2 years and oldest 17...
Rules... age split in half..and that was how many laps you had to go!!
No wonder we older didn´t ski...
The prize...chocolate medals for all...

Easter Day... traditions to eat eggs...and the children painted them...
Ok I did some too...
Easter Sunday ... brought us sunny weather again...
so we spent the day outside ...
barbecuing sausage and bread...
Yummy!!!
Monday out again... more sun!!!
And on Tuesday morning we went home ...
And more wonderful weather...we just had to spend time outside!!!
So Viktor and I have spent two days near our river to look at the swans...
...and we had picnic...
and how good doesn´t food taste outside...
I have had so wonderful days...
hope you all have had the same!!

Easter 2009 part one...

I´m back...
from a wonderful ...fun ...and...joyful time spent at my parents place...
In Arjeplog...
where the snow still rules...
We were at most 21 peolpe...
and how fun isn´t that...
We were out most of the time...kids playing...and some grown ups just had to start a
snowball fight!!!
On Good Friday we celebrated that my Dad had turned 70...
Guy prepared one of his wonderful cakes...
and this time he let the kids decorate the cake...
I think its beautiful...
(and it tasted heavenly... )
When all that was prepared...
there was an egghunt...
and the kids searched for there candy eggs...and Dad had to search for his special one...
... and in his ...there was a MOUSE...
for his new laptop...
He has so much to write and document ..so I hope this will help him
organize and help documenting all he knows about our familys history...
Good Luck Dad...
And yes ...he loved Viktors present...
very much...
Back tomorrow with more pictures...
see you!!!
