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)
Yummy!!!

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...
:o))

HUGS!!!

So Welcome!!!!

just email me at
kviltstina at gmail dot com

These last weeks have been spent hours and hours ( very early hours!!!) in the sewing room... 
to have this quilt finished...

81 small blocks.. made into nine bigger blocks...
Lots and lots of stitchery!!! 

(well not every block was sewn last week... but I thought I had made them all...
so Marica I lied to you!! :o)...
When I started to look for them it almost drove me crazy... and couldnt figure out where they were... deeep sigh.... and another one... deeper this time...  had to bite the dust and remake them... but while sewing them... I remembered not having them made... stupid me... :o)

Wont tell which quilt it is.. you´ll have to wait and see... :o)
some of you might guess it... 
but schhhhhh... 


So it is right now at my sewing table being quilted...
and oh please please cross your fingers for everything to go just fine...
have had some thread breakages...
hop stitches...
and other annoying issues...
And as usual... changed needle to a higher number... changed thread... and slowed my speed... and keeping my tongue right in my mouth!!!

Is there anything else I could do...lol...
Any other tips ...
most welcome!!! :O)

See you!

Less than a month now...

Time is really getting closer now....

Exhibition time...
(Promise to be back with more info on when, where and how... )

A month ago I travelled to Skellefteå and checked the place out and measured the walls and felt the atmosphere... 

It is a lovely place and I think it will be just perfect...


For the moment I am sewing like crazy... 
having hard time to sleep.. guess I can do that in July instead...lol..

Sewing at home... getting up very early and sew before getting to work...  sewing at work... having my design education...
working on this at work...


Head on home and sew some more when coming home... 
PHHHHEEEEWWW!!!!

Stitching like a maniac... need to have some finishes this week
 so I can move forward to other things...

Hope to be finished with my big project by the weekend!!!!
Have lots to stitch... but so far everything is fun.. so I am OK...

Wish me luck these last weeks!!!
Back to some sewing...
Thanks to all that are stopping by to cheer me on...
need the support..:o)

LOVE LOVE from me...
