I'm still here

Just discovered it's over a week since I lasted blogged. Time just fly to fast away. Please make it go a little slower.
The weather is wonderful. We have warm summer temperature. Not a cloud on the sky. I've finished my part of the paiting outside and can now relax on my porch. It's been many hours and hard work of paiting, but I made it. With good help from my DD and good friends. My boyfriend let me down and I've told him not to come anymore. And the best of all is that my arms/shoulders is still feeling good. I've been very very careful.

This weekend I went to Irene's cabin. And of course we girls had to have some fun. We hung up the swings and had to try them. We laughed and laughed and was probably a hilarious sight.
I did a little stitching this weekend.

Finished this block on Gail Pans sewing angels....................
and started stitching this one. Only this one and another one left to stitch now and I can sew them together. Stitchery is so fun and easy to bring with out in the sunshine. I've got so many questions about how I'm doing my stitchery so I'm planning a little tutorial to show you some tricks.
When I came back from the cabin I had got a package from USA. I'm part of a yahoo group "Crazyaboutpincushions" and we've had a swap making heart pincushions. And now I got mine from my swap partner Susan W (no blogger)
This is what she made for me. A beautiful heartshaped pincushion in soft colours (LOVE IT). She had also made me a stickpin/hatpin and somthing to hang on my scissor. And some beautiful fabrics.
And this is what I posted to her. All of us had to make the same pincushion, but it is fun to see how different all of them became. Some added laces, some did embroidery on them aso. And of course I had to add a little stitchery as extra suprise for my swap partner. And it's fun to hear that she loves to do stitchery.
Today after work I helped Irene in the quiltshop preparing for some quiltladies coming on a trip to the shop on saturday. And we got a lovely visitor while being there. Laila's grandcat Cyan came along to inspect the shop. She's and Russian blue with lovely green eyes. And she was so curious on everything in the shop.


I've just discovered this QUILTING BLOGGERS. And when I opened the list of norwegian bloggers I discovered I was already listed there. Together with some of my norwegian best friends. Wonder who put me/us on that list. It's worth looking at this link because they are now linking 571 quilt bloggers, and the number is still increasing.



Saying for today:
Men and fish are alike . . .
they both get into trouble when they open their mouths.

Hi May,

I added about 400 quilting bloggers before the site officially launched. These were sites I had found over the past several months.

Thank you for posting about my site. I appreciate the support. :)
