Back to normal days

I'm almost back to normal days after Leanne left Trysil and went back home to Australia. We had such great fun together. But everything comes to an end and we have to get back to normal. But we have all these memories and photos to look at. And so many ideas !!!

Today it was a bit cold outside.............inside the house also............so I made a fire in my fireplace. And I bought a new box to have all the wood in. I love when I can make a cup of warm tea and sit in front of the fire and just relax. We had a little bit of snow today too, but it's all gone now
I have done a little bit more on my Friendship basket which I started on the wednesday class with Leanne. I love this one. I have appliqued the basket and all the flowers and done the stitchery around the basket. I have chosen to have a lot of sayings around the border. That's because I love sayings and always have one at the end of my posts.
The first one is saying: Flowers are the stars of heaven. You have to wait and see what the sayings on the other sides are later.
And guess what I've bought. I had to have one of those Jelly Rolls too.
What to make of it................no idea!!
Well............my first idea was to make a hexagone quilt of it but then I've bought all these flanell fabrics for that project ..........so I have to think about it........... for a while............. LOL
Saying for today:
One quilt project, like one cookie, is never enough!

You do beautiful work. Is this pattern available or was it special for her class. You were so lucky to have her teach a class. She always has a smile and is so cute.

I love your flower basket stitching and the jelly roll, well, I just love it as it is. I think I want one too. Just so I can think what to make next. There's always a new project on the horizon.

Your friendship basket is progressing wonderfully!!! Looking great! I'm still trying to get used to needle turn appliqué...

I love your jelly roll! I've got a couple... one I have plans for (simple plans) and one I have no idea what to do with. *lol*

Take care and have a wonderful weekend! Big hugs...

Your Friendship Basket is adorable! I can imagine how much you have enjoyed working on that. It's a basket filled with so many memories.

It's nice to get back to normal after such a busy and enjoyable week. :-)

I have a jelly roll too that my sister gave me for my birthday in JUNE! I have a pattern chosen, I just have to find time to make it.

Hanne said...

Your basket quilt is coming along nicely :-)
I have not done a stitch on mine - yet - but Peace and Plenty will be finished soon.
I want to show it in my guild's show next weekend.

May, I love the friendship basket! You are a fast worker to have so much appliqued and stitched already. It's always fun to see what you are making. The jellyroll is very pretty, also.

Your friendship basket is lovely and that fire looks so inviting. That is one thing I really miss about my last apartment -- a wood burning fireplace :0). Your workshops and classes with Leanne sound like they were so much fun! What a wonderful experience!

Suze said...

After looking at all of your wondeful pictures I had to get a Leanne Project all my own. Thanks for the introduction.

Rose Marie said...

What a sweet block and the quote is perfect!

Leanne said...
