Snöfrid's quilt...

Finally got the photos out of the camera...so here you go...
I decided on a pattern with crosses and o's
(hugs and kisses)
I used "Speck" by Miss Rosie's Co
from the Little Bites collection
I used larger corner squares in the pattern though...
I wanted to maximise what I could get out of the 2 1/2"
squares I worked with...

Close up on a little square...
Do you see the snowflakes...:0)
I'm always amazed at how different the snowflakes are...

Here is another funny picture...
Do you see the doves on the lamp post...;0)
A lot of powder snow this day..and cold...

The whole quilt...
And a little label for the cutie pie...
...From Auntie Stina...to Snöfrid
(Btw...directly translated Snöfrid is Snow peace/peaceful...)
Found a lovely flannel for the back...
In stash..:0)
Ain't it nice finding such treasures...:0)

Late last night I got a photo of the main person

Snöfrid
and the quilt...
She is gaining weight right now...
seems like the feeding diet have done good results!!!
Way to go girl...
 
Love from me...see you soon...

Tripping again...

After finishing Snöfrid's quilt...yes it is finished ...
and delivered tonight..:0)
Photos will come once I get them out of the camera!!!

I started to tripping my way around the world again
...decided that I ought to take a look into my old fabrics and see what I could find there...so a lot of fabrics were cut into strips and hung up to see if they would match my newer ones...

Think they will!!!! :0))
So see you later with some blocks made!!

Ok...did it again....

I vanished from blog land again...sorry....:0))
didn't mean to...but you all know...
life do get in between sometimes..
Ok...where was I ...tripping around the world...
(See last post)
oh yes...so much fun..
But had to let that project go under cover for some time...;0)

You see...I am an AUNT again...:0)
Brother finally got their fourth child...
and after three boys she was a little surprise...

She got into the world with a little struggle with
low glucose and high blood levels...
very tired...couldn't eat by herself...
so they had to stay at hospital a little bit longer
...but are now home with a tough feeding schedule...
Every even hour breast feeding and odd hours by bottle...
...day and night!...

Today brother told me she had gained 100 grams the last days
...jippiee...
And that she is more awake and in better shape...:0)
So hopefully she will keep on making progress...
Here she is... Cutest ever...;0)

...SNÖFRID...
Being an aunt again...and a quilter...you know how it is...
a quilt "must" be made...with love of course...

Hmmmm...
What to make...
Soft colours...yes...not to pink...
Even if I could have done that..;0)
but I think a more brownish scale...
Found these...
And these...
And added some of these...
A pattern decided...
Hugs & Kisses (of course ...:0)
Lots of little snippets filled my bucket quickly...
Back with progress soon...
Promise!
