Sunday Evening....

and I actually am making a blogpost for you to read..

March is here...
 and it is most welcomed... lighter days...more sun... warmer days...
Maybe some melting will start!!! 

And do you know what I did this weekend!!!!!
I de-cluttered my sewing room!!!!

Still lots to do.. more things will have to find new places...
but I can see my sewing machine..and is a good thing..:o)

Promised you a picture of a quilt I made for Louise....
Changed plans for my Christmas gift for her.. saves it for next year.. and decided to make her a little quilt instead... 
Louise made this quilt for both me and Marica at Christmas...
So I made her another version of 

Quilt for Louise
Since Christmas was long gone when I had it finished...
 I made a Spring version of it...

The pattern is from a free pattern shared on the blog of 
Cheri Saffiote Payne before Christmas...

I just love her patterns... 
think I will make some more of her quilts...
they always makes my heart sing a little!!
Maybe that is what I need...

Another week is coming up with work ....
holidays for Viktor...
and a cold for me...
Hope its gone in the morning!!!

Took some photos today of my new fabrics..and pheeww...
 it was LOTS!!!
Share soon... :o)
Hugs to you all

  2. what a cute little one :) Perfect to make a spring quilt...I put mine away yesterday and it´s very empty on the wall right now :( Need something that looks very spring and brightness :)

  3. It's a delightful quilt in true Stina style. :-)

  4. Åååååå, denne var skikkelig søt. En flott vårquilt. Nydelige stoffer også. Ha en super uke!

  5. Denne quilten er bare såååååååååååå nydelig. Du er så flink med farger og sammensettinger.
    Håper våren kommer snart hos deg også, jeg tror vi alle trenger sol og varme nå :)

  6. For en lekker quilt! Herlige farger...det lukter vår.Og takk for linken:o) Solveig

  7. I love the quilts. So very sweet! And it's nice to see a post from you. Always fun to see what you're up to. Can't wait to see your sewing room all neat and tidy. I've been doing that little by little to mine, but it's hard with many projects in the works. I keep checking them off the list though!

    Hope your cold goes away!


  8. That's a sweet angel. Does it represent you?
    And is that buttons making the stem of the flower? A good idea.

  9. hey pleased for you that spring is on it's always feels good after a cleanup doesn't it...and that quilt is so pretty and just the right season too...

  10. Fin liten glädjespridare till din vän.Nu känns det att våren kan komma men innan dess får vi njuta av de vackra vårvinterdagarna.

  11. Well done on the last couple of weeks I have completely cleaned and re-organised my sewing room and it is so worth the effort...enjoy your revamped space.
    Your little quilt for Louise is very cute...and springlike...

  12. Du är så duktig på att göra ljuvliga presenter i karamellfärger. Tänk att få en sån present!
    Våren är på gång här nere och snart hos er också. Håll ut!

    Ha en bra vecka och hoppas förkylningen försvann.

    Kram Gudrun

  13. This is such a cute quilt, should bring in the spring weather for you and Louise.

  14. Your quilt is just so pretty. You do the prettiest quilts of anyone I know and I love to see them. Let us hope that your colds disappear along with the snow. Hope you are feeling better.
    Love Shirley.x

  15. What a nice quilt !! Your friend is very lucky !
    I can't wait to see your "new" sewing room... who knows ? it could give me inspiration ! :))

  16. This quilt is so sweet. I thought it looked familiar, although I don't think, if pressed, I would have said it was Cheri's pattern. I love what the change in colors does with it.

  17. Oh Stina! That little quilt is cute as can be! I love the colors you used and that cute little pink flower!

  18. Absolutely sweet and beautiful quilt!!
    Happy Spring to you :)

    Best wishes,

  19. Just love your version of Cheri's quilt - so sweet *s*

  20. I think your version of Cheri's quilt is so darling, I love how you mix your fabrics. Great work on decluttering, any words of advise for someone who is long over due to get things cleared out, would be appreciated?

  21. I am sooo happy for my little spring quilt! I just love it!
    Olivia 2 years old also likes it, every time she comes to visit she takes it and puts it in her doll stroller. I keep telling her that it is mormors but she says:"de min". And what kind of grandmother would I be if I did not share... she likes quilts!!! What can I say;-)
