Finished... all quilted and bound....

July Schnibble 
Joy Luck....

Made in fabrics from Urban Chiks.... Dream On....

After I had sewn the top together... I had lots and lots of little snippets left...
and I couldn´t throw them away.. so I used them in the border...
making tiny little flowers.... :o)

New goals for this month..
Have 3 Schnibbles to make...
The first one that I missed out completely on...
Too short on time ...even if Sinta tried to help me out... 
long road to Sweden from USA...:o))

December Schnibble... 
The pincushions...

And August Schnibble....
still havent decided on which one to make yet...
have to sleep on it a little bit longer!!! :o)

 Or just relax and read and let time tell...

Got this wonderful book in my hand..
and I am so in love with it.. 
Lynda  have really done her best this time.. (Well... she always do..:o)
but the book itself is so pretty ... gorgeous photos... and LOVE the projects!!!!!
Got some more things....
but wont show... it might be gifts ...:o)
Otherwise I am recovering from a cold I got at mom and dad´s...
long time since I had so much trouble with my asthma...
sometimes I almost forget I have it.. but not now... 

No sewing here at all..
having big big time no mojo at all...
Too much sewing ... 
Give me some more time and I will be back... 
full speed..

it´s still Summer... and I enjoy days with Viktor...
two weeks left of my vacation....

Daughter just moved in.. and out again... 
She and her boyfriend.. found another apartment...
and tonight they will sleep there for the first time...
I am sooo happy for them... 
their happiness is so wonderful to see
and love for each other... 

Tomorrow brother is coming.. or on Wednesday...
have to think on something nice to feed them with... ;o) 
Any ideas ... someone!!!! :o)

See you!


  1. What a lovely quilt STINA. It´s just summer and a girls dream I think. Wish it was mine.
    Asthma is not good at all-I know I have had trouble since March.
    Wish you good days with Viktor and sewing.

  2. I love the little flowers in the border of your quilt. You are so good at making special touches!
    How about a taco casserole? Easy, good and kids usually like it!
    Enjoy your vacation!

  3. I love your Joy Luck! The little flowers really add to it!

  4. Stina, get well, soon! It's summer...and if it's possible, to have a cold in summer is even worse than the rest of the year.

    Good luck to your August goals,

  23. I just love your Joy Luck quilt, what colours, very summer!

  24. What a gorgeous quilt!! I just love the freshness of it and the colours...just beautiful!

  25. Stina, I just discovered your blog while looking for hand embroidery patterns! I have some health issues that prevent me from doing the very elegant stitching and crocheting doilies that I used to do so I have been making quilts with the help of my sewing machine. But somehow the longing to do hand stitching just won't go away so I have been re-teaching myself to do simple embroidery and doing okay at it. I love the stitching patterns that are so popular for quilts and wall hangings these days. Anyway I just ended up here and wandered about for a while and just had to tell you, I truly love your "Joy Luck" Schnibble. I believe it is the most beautiful I have see as I've looked around at many of them. I haven't made any Schnibbles yet but I have one pattern and intend to do but I have been side tracked by the longing to do needlework. Your stitcheries are also beautiful! Well, I just stopped in to tell you how wonderful your work was and now I'm off in search of the "Simple Pleasures" embroidery patterns. They seem to be hiding from me. *smile* Happy stitching!

  26. Just catching up reading your blog. Always lovely things to see that you make. Love the little snippets on the Joy Luck quilt.
    Your shirt quilt is just precious.
