One ufo almost finished :)

I am almost finished with my "Say it with flowers" quilt. Just a little bit more quilting in the big squares between the flowers and then the binding. I am so happy with this quilt. This is my second "blue" quilt and they who knows me well knows that I have not been very fond of blue colours. Up til now. I have started to love blue colours now. I bought this pattern when I visited Val D'Argente september 2005.

I have blogged little this year because I have been very busy. Have worked late several days and when I come home I have worked with the registration for the Norwegian Quilt Associations annual meeting. But as you see I have been able to handquilt a lot when I have relaxed in front of the tv.

My next block for the AD (Applique Design) is prepared and I intend to sew it tomorrow. I am so looking forward to fridays. Friday is a sacred day for me. I always clean my house on thursdays (if I have to LOL) and when I come home from work on fridays I love staying home and relax with my DD, boyfriend, good food and perhaps a glass of redwine. They use to teas me because when the clock is almost nine I start to yawn and zzzzzZZZZZZZZZ. But it feels so good, doesn't it ?

Love your Say It With Flowers. I am often told I 'never' use blue. When I cleaned my room, I found that I do. Funny how people can make you think something that isn't really true *s*

Blue is my absolute favorite color so I can assure you that I LOVE your quilt. LOL Actually, May Britt, it's beautiful - your handquilting is wonderful. Someday I will learn how to handquilt.

Congratulations on being almost finished with your quilt. You haven't been working on it that long, just 5 months, and it's almost finished! That's great.

Friday night was always my "let down" night when I was working. All the tired from the week piles up on Friday night!

I love it! I use to make blue everything...up until a year or so ago. Then, I "discovered" that there were more colors out there. lol. I still have to work hard at not using too much of it though. I need to stretch those boundaries.

Have a wonderful Friday!
