Hello again..:o)

 Well I promised to be back didn´t I??? :o)

With some pictures from our weekend together...
Marica and I...
So sorry that the other girls couldn´t make it.. we missed you...
maybe next time we can be all five of us!!


EDIT!!!
Check out Maricas blogpost from the weekend  here and here

Oh oh Marica... sewing it was... NO computer..lol...
I know.. you did some researching...
at least you said so..:o)


She is excused.. she worked hard with her lovely little purses...
Both with the first one... with a pattern that wasn´t correct... 
and with the second one....
The second one is sooooo CUTE..:o)

Think I will have to try to make one... :o)
After that she started to sew on a Tilda doll...

Meanwhile I sewed my little patches together... and sewed on the borders....
working with the lovely fabric line
Nicey Jane...

While I sewed she started to plan next weeks project...

So be sure to see to that she sews some...
because I really want to see this one finished...
It will be wonderful...


Ok.. and what did I actually sew on this weekend....

My Schnibble of course!!!! :o)

This time I chose the pattern 
Hot Cross..
it was our choice this month... and I have had this pattern for some time
 and just waited for the right time and place..
and now it was...the right time and place...

My Schnibble this month...
...Summer Cross...




Decided to sew on the quilt all weekend.. 
so while Marica still was here.. I prepared it for quilting..
but never in my life I thought I would finish it today..
But I did...:o)

It is all quilted and bound... 
WOW...
Will share a picture of the quilt tomorrow...
it was too bad light in the sewing room when I was finished... 
so I will take a new picture and show... 

What a wonderful weekend..
couldnt have had a better one..
Thanks for the company Marica!!!

New week coming up..
Capacity building at work with 
Design Education...
Hmm
wonder how this will go... 
10 weeks with designing... 
yikkees..
Well well.. 
this is what I do at work...
 so I guess it wont be so much trouble..just a lot of fun!!

 See you...
(and oh it was fun to make a blogpost again... actually two in a day..lol...)

Hello my friends....

Miss me...:o)

I miss you... :o)

Time flies and life is busy around here...  sewing in between and try to get some things finished for exhibition... 
But this weekend I have company in my sewing room..

Marica is here and we sew and do have so much fun..
SOOOO good to have company....

On Friday we exchanged our Birthday gifts
 with each other.. a couple of months late.. but we haven't managed to get together before... 

And all I can say my waiting was for the good.. this is what she made for me...

Ahhh.. I love it... :o)
The colours and the fabric ... soo sweet....
And now I have my own... 
SMILE!!!
And her daughter made the lovely bracelet...
Isn´t it lovely??
Love it Jennifer!!!

And Marica... thanks from the bottom of my heart!! 

And this is what I made for Marica...


A recycled jam jar turned into a pincushion....
with a little mini quilt inside...

Had so much fun making this one... have to make one for myself later...

Saturday morning we started to plan our projects....
I started up with some new fabrics for me...
Nicey Jane...
And was almost finished late last night.. Pictures will come later today..:o) 

And Marica started with a smaller project...
And made first one... and hmmm.. 
wasn't to satisfied with the colours on the velcro.. so she had to make a new one... in lighter fabrics.... 
And... Promise to share more pictures of this later...

See you... have to get up and sew!!!

Hugs to you all..

May update from me...

 Still here...
trying to sew when I have the time...
last week held little time behind the sewing machine 
when Mum was here..
Now she is back at home..  and brother is in charge...
trying to keep her out of work!!

She is doing fine... despite everything...
she will never be able to lift her arm again.. and life feels hard...
Still hope the surgery will do some good!

Well..
what have happened here then...
have had lovely mail from friends...

A couple of weeks ago Mary at Quilt Hollow 
sent me some lovely pink leftovers from her work...
some pretty little pinks...
Ahhh.. this will be some fun to work with...
( havent played with them yet..:o)
Thanks Mary!!!

And I had a date with Mrs Fortuna and won a giveaway  at Ullas Fiber Blog last week...
won fabrics that were like a vitamin injection..;o)
Thanks Ulla... :o)


And this week a surprise came in the mailbox..
it was my swap blocks ...
in my swap with Louise and Marica...
Four baskets were sent from me
and Louise and Marica made four each for me...
And Ohh.. Girls.. they are just lovely...
THANK YOU!!
just like I imagined them...;o)
Will be fun to put these togehter...
( Marica... yours will come soon...;o)


In between work and family I am still sewing for the exhibition...
having  some finishes.. and sewing on some new things...


It goes really slow now... 
need a little bit more energy and time...
Hope to find it this week..:o)

Have a good time out there...
and be nice..:o)

Bad day!

not for me.. but for MUM...
You who read my blog might remember that in November last year my Mum fell bad and tore a muscle in her arm... 
today was her surgery... it took 6 months... and guess what..
they couldnt do much... 
it was too long time since the injury!!!
This makes me sooooo angry and soooo sad and all I can say is

Where have our wonderful health care gone???

%&/(/&€%&&&##... and &/(/&%..
sigh..

Well enough of that...

I want to thank everyone for all the lovely comments...
still NO TIME to answer and have limited time to spend by the computer...
Have been busy sewing and being a Mum...

This is what I have been up too..
sorry just little peeks... ;o)

In time I will show!!! :o)

Take care and have a wonderful weekend!!
Miss you!
