An award and a little bit stitching

Today I got this award for creative bloggers from Anne Ida. I really appriciate it. And thank you for the lovely words you said about me.

There are so many wonderful bloggers on my bloglines list and all of them are so talented and creative. But I want to give this award to somebody that really means a lot to me:

Hanne and Nancy because you both are such wonderful true friends who I can share all my thoughts with. You both inspire me so much with all your ideas and enthusiasme.

We've finished the first round of painting on the front side of the house. And we'll start on the other side today if the weather allows us. Having thunder and rain today it's more like a sewing weather than a painting weather. I've discovered muscles I didn't know I had. My hips and legs are hurting like h..... LOL LOL So when I came inside yesterday I installed myself with a glass of wine, a heat pillow on my hip and some stitching. And Lost on tv :) Abstinence cured by doing some applique on the hearts for my advent calendar.

And I've pulled some forgotten books out of my bookshelf. Yes yes yes ...........Hanne and Nancy............I will start to look at my EQ5. I know you both have the newest version of it and you both have been teasing me about this. You both know this is my bad (very bad) conscience. I promise I'll look at it now...................when I got time between painting and stitching LOL

I've ordered some books the last days. Had to have some summer goodies to look forward to and as a prize for all the hard work painting.

I've ordered Annie Downs new book "Simple Pleasures" and Rosalie Quinlans new book "Little chicken feathers and friends" over at Honeysuckle cottage.

I've also ordered Anne Pia Godske Rasmussens new book "Hånd i Hanke" I got all her previous books so I had to have this one know LOL

Saying for today:

I keep my end tables full of needlework
and quilting so I don't have to dust them.

You deserve that glass of wine after everything that you've accomplished today!

I think you will need to treat yourself to a nice massage when the painting is all done! Jo x

Grattis till utmärkelsen!
Tack för din förklaring av "kråkorna" i min blogg, hade en aning om att det kunde vara ett ortsnamn.
Jag är alltid in och tittar in hos dig för du gör helt fantastiska arbeten!

Anne Ida said...

The hearts for the advent calendar looks great!

So you're getting to use your EQ5? Look forward to seeing what you come up with!!

Have a great weekend! You having rain as well? No painting then I guess :o) And perhaps some sewing time?
