Oh my goodness.. I did it again...
pheew.. why should it be so hard to post on the blog nowadays!"!!!

Well well.. here I am..:o)
And believe me or not..

I have done the quilting on Butterfly Garden...

And I must say.. I had totally forgotten how wonderful it was to quilt on my Horizon...
I am amazed...
not a single thread mishappening..
no nothing... just PURE fun!!

Binding is on!!! 
Even more hooray..
Label is done..... clap clap!!

So I do have a quilt finished!!! 
Happy dancing!!! :o)
Will take photos today of the finished quilt...
weather is brilliant today.. no rain...just some lovely sunshine!!

While working on the quilt...
I had company...but this time she enjoyed the sewing
much more.. and could relax on her new bed...
I made it from old jeans and old crocheted table cloths and 
filled it with millions of "foamballs"... 
dont know the right word for it!! :o)

Works Super!!
Thirdly ...
I looked into my scrap bin...
and decided it was time to use them up a little..
So a new project is started..:O)

Hopefully... it will be something to show soon...
not three weeks away..but soon!!! :o)

Chiropractor tomorrow...and a quilt to deliver...
see you lovelies!! :o)

  14. Good to hear from you again :))

  15. Glad to see your back and have been sewing! Love your Butterfly Garden quilt. Can't wait to see what you do with all your lovely scraps.

  16. Du är en ständig källa till inspiration och jag har saknat dig. Kul att du skriver igen! Tror jag skulle bli väldigt sömnig av att ha sådant sällskap när jag skulle sy - men å andra sidan verkar hon ju kunna ligga still en stund nu och då hinner du få någonting gjort. Längtar att få se vad du hittar på med dina scraps.

  17. Hallå där! Kul att du är tillbaka i etern! Jag ser fram emot att se ditt nya projekt. Tygerna ser inspirerande ut!

  18. Hello, hello, hello! So nice to 'see' you. :-)

    Your quilt is adorable and I know you're happy to see it finished. The dog bed is sweet!
