Two PIF´s delivered....

and one I am still working on...
So Linda.. sorry you have to wait for yours a little bit more...

So if you remeber from a older post that I was making something...
and it looked like bread...
read this post...
It wasnt.. you knew that didnt you...
it was arms to my Angels...
Finished them last week and sent the PIF´s out to new homes...

thought that the one I sent to Italy would arrive first.. but nah.... it didnt
It was quicker to travel to USA!!!

This one I sent to Fiorella in Italy...
I used a pattern from Anne-Pia Godske Rasmussen ... just changed the quilt a little bit and stitched a little Friendship heart instead!
And made a little pincushion of scraps with
a little crochet flower...

And this one travelled to Sherri in Usa...
Sure had so much fun making these ones...
Anne-Pia has so lovely patterns...

And I am happy that they have arrived safely and being
loved in their new homes...

So off to another project...
Swap with LYN...

A little peek for you...
wont tell what on earth I am doing...
because I dont really know myself...
Hopefully I know tomorrow!!!

See you soon...

Coughing....

and having a sore throat... and not feeling at all to well...
taking a break from everything...
Hope to get back soon with some more energy...

Had a little curious visitor the other day...
dont know if it is a he or a she... but cute and not at all afraid...
searched for birdseed beside our birdhouse...
And spring has come a long way now... its getting greener and greener
every day... Finding more and more flowers during my walks...
...but in my sewingroom it is no activity at all...ok almost none...
the sewing mojo is gone....
dont know where I dropped it???
Hope to find it soon..
Crochet ...for a PIF lady...

Ok.. back to the bed..just wanted to say
-HELLO IM STILL HERE!!!!
