What I did this weekend...

 except for having a wonderful time
 cyber sewing with my friends...
(It worked so good with the webcam!!!)
Marica... Cici... Kristina... and Lotta
Thanks for a lovely weekend girls!!!
I actually did sew some ...

Finished the stitching for last years Easter project...
"Bunny Tales"
By Jo Ann Mullen
except for .. I need to restitch the fence..in block four
too soft pink...

Finished my some swap blocks.. 
so they will hopefully be in the mail soon Marica!!!

And I have joined the Stitch-A-Long
arranged by Chookyblue, Peg and Dale...

Have had Anni Downs book 
A Gardener´s Journal since Summer 2005
(said so in the book...;o)
and said sooo many times I have to start it...
And this was an opportunity to finally.....MAYBE get it finished...
I know... haven't quilted 
An Angels Story yet... 
but that´s another story..:o)
(Hope finger will hold soon to get the handquilting done)
Have prepared this months stitchery blocks.. 
and might draw up some more...
Will be good to have when we go to Arjeplog  during Easter!!

And I have a little finish too...
And for this I can thank Julie at
for helping me out so I could make this cute little wallhanging!!!!

Thank you so much Julie!!!
 Ooopss... see that it´s not quite finished.. 
forgot to quilt near the binding..;o)
Well.... it is almost finished then... 

A most wonderful weekend!!!
Maybe I scared some bugs away with having some fun!!!

Sewingweekend...

but in a new way....
via webcam... :o)

The colds stopped me from going to Maricas house 
where we was supposed to be..
but got a bright idea.. why not try to connect  and bring my friends
( Marica, Cici, Kristina and Lotta)
to my house via webcam... 
and it worked brilliant!!! :o)
It was hard to get some nice photos of my friends...
but I hope I can get them on picture later today..:o)

but you get the point..
it was sooo nice to be able to take part in 
the chatting and seeing what they made...
and hear them... :o)

We sewed  until about 8 pm... when I started to quit for the day...
and so did they... but before that
 they teased me with some pictures of what they had for dinner
cooked by Maricas husband Roger!!

You know.. I was supposed to go away..and MY GUYS always eat...
"Pannkaka" when I am away....
and that isnt my favourite... and that was what was supposed to be at the table this weekend...
but there was some nice leftover for me...;o)
 Earth hour light savings... at 8 30 pm... and after that ... no sewing ...
just the bed... :o)

Made some blocks during the day for a swap....
with Louise and Marica...
so finally girls... 
they will be on the way!!
And I started something new... 
See you ...
The day have started and I am connected via web to the girls today too...
so another sewingday is to begin..:o))

Outside snow is whirling...
more snow...but it is a fantastic sewing weather!!!

See you..

Turnabout...

Hi there...
Still here... 
 More  colds have been going around here.. 
Viktor mostly this time... 
Hope for some change soon....
Getting pretty tired of  being sick...
So I am desperately looking for signs of spring everywhere.. and this is what 
was happening on my little street today!!
So much snow on the streets that they are too narrow
so snow has to go... before it starts to melt....
And this is what they have come up with..
never seen it before..
Spring is coming..... :o)

And still some are working on my hearts...
Julie at JulieKQuilts
did this cute wallhanging... 
Thanks for showing Julie... :o)
Sewing have been done... 
in between everything...
Not the things I had hoped for ... but I started My Schnibble 
for this month

"Roundabout"

I decided to work with a charmpack and one Jelly roll..
So I started with enlarging the pattern so I could use the strips 
in the Jelly Roll...

Edit:
Fabric line = Porcelaine

But when progress came along I knew I had to make the quilt a little bit different...
Larger YES...
wanted a lap quilt for me..
Just for me!!!

The fabrics were to busy to be together.. so I added sashings...
and used the solid strips in the Jelly cut in to squares in between....
So this is the result for my Roundabout
that became a

"Turnabout"
Sometimes a girl has to do what ever pleases her... :o)
So I am a little bit sorry for not sticking to the pattern... 
but happy that I didn´t ...:o)

This weekend was to be spent with my quiltingfriends
"Kviltarna"
but it seems like I won´t be able to go..
Lars is working extra... 
and Viktor is sick... 
Well.. maybe it will all solve.. haven´t quite given up just yet...
Otherwise  I will be here by my sewing machine this weekend!!
See you!!

OOOpss..
almost forgot...

Over and out from a still very wintry 
Sweden!

Back to work...

after two weeks with a cold...that still havent let go of me...
sigh..
a bit tired...
but it can of course be because I have been a bit stupid too...
You know..
lots of snow on the roofs...
doors that wont open because of that...
soo.. what did I do...
I did tackle the garage door...
(holding my fist just on the lower ribs)
and OUUACHHHH...
I hurt my ribs... :o(
I havent been to the doctor ..yet... :o)
Please be kind to me..
I know.....stupid.. but thats how it is...
Well.. anyway I did go to work today..
Good of me..or not... ;o)

Enough of that...
First signs of a change in the seasons...
Melting snow..:o)
but there is so much snow...
 I think we will have snow here until May...

Have worked slowly on things while I have been at home...
 secrets...
And started something new...
which I wasn´t supposed to do
But you know how it is...
...lol...
And one more thing..
I opened up my first Jelly Roll..;o))
Hope I can sew some this weekend...
It hurts a lot bending over the sewing machine..:o(
