Schnibbles and Midsummer ...

Hi everyone...

One week left now...
for the exhibition.. and this house aint what is should be...
too messy and too unorganized..
but I am getting there... having finishes almost every day now...
even if they are small.. they are finishes!!!! 

Managed to squeeze in a very very reduced  variant of this months
Schnibble  "State Fair"

Needed a small table runner for my table.. and used this months pattern... 
I used all recycled fabrics... 
And all I can say is when I had sewed all the blocks together in  a long row... 
I almost yelled out load..  SIGH...
you know what happened..  with very lose weaved fabrics.. huh... :o)
they stretch...  A LOT!!!! 
So I never thought this was going to be anything.. 
but I managed... pheeeww..:o)

The past weekend we celebrated Midsummer in Sweden...
this year we didnt do much... just at home the three of us...
cooking a three meal dinner together ..
And it was a success.. :o)

Midsummers Day.. it was Viktor´s Birthday... turning 11..:o)

Breakfast in bed ... as always... and my Grandmothers stitched  
Happy Birthday cloth.. sooo special to us...:o)

We had Lars family here for dinner and cake
 an it was nice to catch up on everyone.. 

 Otherwise nothing else is happening around here except for me sewing every free time I have...
So I end this with some more little peeks from what I am working on.. or in fact.. they are finished!!! :o)

So better get on with some more sewing and THINKING...
I think it is the hardest part with all this...
trying to organize and not knowing how it will be... 
But on Sunday night I will know...



  1. Viktor has had his big day...happy birthday Viktor!...and yours is coming soon.

    I'm really excited for you and for your show, Stina. You have been working so hard that I think you just might need a vacation afterward.
