Where does time fly away.......

Already May 1'th. Can't believe april is already gone. Feels like it's just a few days since christmas. Why can't time slow down a little bit...............or perhaps it's we that have to slow down. Are we to occupied with everything and nothing so we forget to think about ourselves.
Today I visited my mother and had dinner with her. A nice way to celebrate may 1th. I brought some stitchery with me and she is always happy to see what I'm working on. She was a very talented quilter and I miss the time we sat together working on our quilts.


After dinner a lot of folk dancers came by and enternained us. It was fun to see all the different national costumes.
As I said earlier I brought some stitchery today and I manage to finishe all blocks for the adventcalendar. So now I just have to wait for the fabric I have ordered to continue working on it. (I had nothing in my stash LOL) Still have to applique 12 heart blocks.
And I continue working on Butterfly garden block #2. And now block #3 have arrived of course. I enjoy using the Roxanne glue and the silk thread when I'm doing the needleturn applique. And look...........isn't this scissor cute. Found it at our local quiltshop yesterday and just had to buy it.


Still a lot of bloggers coming up with noreply so please chech your profile and see if you have marked the show emailadress.
So...Doris, you mailed me but I can't reply you, please email me again.

And my friend Anita is searching for a fabric. She has too little to finish her project. Can you help her??

Saying for today:

Silketråd til needleturn? Hm, skal eg prøve det på Dear Baby Janes? Og den saksa der, den ser også ut til å vere eit must. Hm..
Ha ei fin helg!

I too wish for more time. But if we had more time, we would want to do even more projects LOL
I can't wait to see the completed advent calender.

You're always working on lovely projects. :-) I love it when you share!

Yes, time does pass way too quickly and I wonder if we're trying to do too much and forgetting to enjoy the moments.

Are you getting ready for Christmas already? Your setting the bar a little high for the rest of us LOL!!

Good question, "are we to occupied with all our activities, so we don't think about ourselves?" or something similar. I've often wondered the same thing. Why is it so hard to just sit and think? A lot of times I feel my timeclock is ticking away, and I have LOTS to do before I no longer can. ARe we thinking like that?

Libby said...

Yes, time does fly. You are clever to working on your Christmas projects now . . . it will be here before we know it.

Love the progress on Butterfly Garden. Did the stitched block (miniblock 2) take a long time to do? It is taking me forever!

Time flies very fast for me....too fast sometimes. I love your little stitcheries. Sounds like you had a nice visit with your Mom.
I haven't started my Butterfly Garden yet...I better get cracking. :)

Where does your mom live? Such a lovely picture of the folk dancers.

Question for you: what do you put under your stitcheries when you stitch them? Is that batting? Also, do you do all your stitcheries this way?
