Sunday night...

how on earth did that come so quickly...
SIGH...
Nothing much have been done around here... 
too tiered...too cold... too anything...
But I wanted to pop in here and say 
HELLO!!!

Last Monday morning Lars found a lovely little package
 for me in our mailbox...
A lovely gift from my friend 
Åsa...

Isn´t this sweet.. 
Love this heart box..have had my eyes on it for a long time..
but havent allowed myself this treat...
and wow..now I got it..:o)
Thankyou so much for the gift Åsa.... 

Did sew the January Schnibble finished...
binding on and up on the wall.. 

Really like how it turned out...

This weekend I have started to cut for
February´s Schnibble...
but it is going SLOW!!!!

Have had stitching going on instead.. working on 
My Bunny Tales quilt..and actually digged out Butterfly Garden
 and stitched a little on that one too... :o)

Have to have something going on in the Olympic Studio 
that have been set up in the living room...
LOL...
(they are going to kill me for showing...lol...)

Made one Olympic beanie for Viktor... 
pretty cute...
....GO SWEDEN..GO!!!....

Work week again..
and the wind is blowing hard.. it storms.. 
and it snows and temps are freezing....
Sure hope it will be much better in the morning...
Otherwise I might be tempted to pull
 the quilt up over my eyes..;o)

Miss Hearty.....

finally got her new hairdo...:o)
She was the most patient little dolly...
never did she complain...
just smiled..and said it was going to be Ok..
What a sweetheart... 

Here are some pictures of her smiling and waiting...
With a dress like that..
The "Hairdresser" suggested a dusty pink colour for the hair... 
and some curls...
Guess if she smiled...:o)

A little tag with the name 
"Hjärta"
("Heart")
was made...

And here she is 
all dressed up for fame...:o)
Miss Hearty..

I think I keep the "Hairdresser"..
just hope she shows up better next time...
(Lazy one....;o)

How is it going with the HEARTS????
Hope to see some more before

Lots of snow here...

everything is covered in white fluffy snow
When do you think all this have melted away...:o) ?
April/May ..I would say.. :o(

Enough of the snow...
In the sewing room it goes very slow...
The little Doll...

We are just waiting for that lazy hairdresser to show up!!!!!
She didnt show up yesterday..

Friendship blocks...and Valentine 2010

How did all this happen... with Valentine 2010...
with Friends of course..:o)

So we are going to go back in time a little... 
to my trip to Norway with my Friends Louise and Marica...
Under the trip we decided to swap blocks with each other...
4 1/2 inches blocks...

So I sent 4 blocks away to Marica..
and she made 4 for me
 and then sent to Louise and she sent to me...
and I sewed on Maricas and Louises blocks...
and I received the most wonderful blocks from my friends...
and can you believe me..I forgot to take photos..;o)
OOpppsss...;o)

Once I received my blocks...
I had this idea in my head..and when I sat there 
stitching.. I thought..why not share all this..
and so I did...
That is how 
Valentine 2010 came to be...
(The hearts are still 
downloadable...
just go to the sidebar...)

Photos of finished projects have started to come ...and I am amazed of all the talent and wonderful creations being made...
And I know more are in progress.. so 
Please share when you are finished..
I know I long to see.. and all of you too... :o)

So lets begin with a little show and tell...
I start with mine..

Valentine 2010...
I did change the word Love and put Friends in my last heart...

So I want to thank
Marica and Louise for my wonderful blocks and the 
inspiration into making this little Friendship quilt...
Thank you!!!!

This have been so much fun..
and when the emails and links are coming in now..
 I can hardly sit still.. I am so excited ... :o)
So please enjoy and be inspired by 
what these talented ladies have done with the hearts...

First out is...

and this one comes from France
from Beatrice at

next one is from my swedish friend 
(no blog)
Britt-Inger
and Suzie 
have used them 
for filled little good smelling pillows....
and the creative Shawn...

Isn´t this fantasic....
I am so amazed...
my little hearts made to all this.. and shared among friends..
This is the best!!!

I love you!! :o)

Please keep on sending me pictures...

with some hearts...
