Mystery quilt part 2

Today came clue # 2 ( in norwegian here) in this years mystery quilt. Merete is the one who have designed this for us. She have done this several years now . You can find earlier mysteryprojects from her here. I think I have made all of them. And most of them have become beautiful table runners, so perhaps this years mystery will be one too??? Who knows yet.

As you see I now have added more around the three first blocks

and I have made three new blocks. Next clue will come on wednesday.
Not a saying today, instead I give you a poem I found on the net. I think a lot of you will recongnize yourself in this:

Disappearing Act

Where do all my pins disappear to?
I've picked up all the ones off the floor.
But when I put them back into their box,
It looked as though there ought to be more.

What became of the needle I had in my hand
When I picked up the spool to thread it?
It seems to have vanished into thin air,
But that explanation I can't credit.

How does my thimble disappear
From the basket where it was laid?
I haven't heard it rolling 'round on the floor
As it did when the cats with it played.

What did I do with that fabric I need
That I had just an hour ago?
I put it away, but in what place?
It's somewhere that it doesn't show.

The magazine with the pattern I liked
Was right on top of that pile.
I
guess it's sunk, but how far down
In such a little while?

I know that book went back on its shelf
And should be with books of its kind.
But I just can't find it, though I've looked five times.
Can it be that I'm going blind?

It's a very good thing that my sewing machine
Is something that's too big to hide.
Not being able to find something as big as that
Would really humble my pride!

I don't know why things I know that I had
Disappear when I put them away.
I find it annoying but I very much fear
It's a problem that's here to stay.

The colors you picked are turning out wonderful in the block. I followed your link yesterday and found the previous years' mysteries, too. I wondered if you had done them all!

Tusen takk for kommentaren på bloggen min. Mysterie quilten ser veldig spennende ut. Fikk dessverre ikke tid til å delta selv, men kommer garantert til å følge med dere andre som syr. Flotte farger du har valgt. Ha en fin søndag :D :D

Hello! I'm new to blogland and came across your site, checking out all the other quilters out there. Your mystery quilt is very interesting, as is your site in general. I was lucky enough to tour around Norway with my sweet mother-inlaw in 1992. We didn't find any quilt shops then, but it might be time to go there with my husband so he can meet his family..and I can look for quilt shops! ;-) Quilting makes the world a smaller and more friendly place!
