First a finish:
One week ago I was invited to my childhood friend to celebrate her 50th birthday and I know she always appriciate something made by me. So this is what I gave her. I have had it almost finshed for a while (read: years), I just had to put the binding on and voilà..........the perfect gift for my friend.
Looooooooong time since I won a giveaway, but this week to packages arrived in my mailbox. Jippiiiiiiii, finally some goodies in my mailbox instead of bills. I'm so happy.
Over at Lyn (Moor patchwork and quilting) I won a wonderful pattern.
And Mona sent me these wonderful romantic fabrics, buttons, thread and a cute Huggets pattern.
Thank you both for picking my name in your giveaways.
I am soon (after my summervacation) going to have a giveaway too, celebrating my 3 years as a blogger.
And what does a quilter do when the rain is pouring down outside. She spend her day in the sewingroom. Saturday was a wonderful evening and my friend Irene and I sat out on the porch until after midnight, chatting and sewing and having a great time together. But sunday.......rain rain rain rain, and it's still raining. Of course.......my summervacation have started.
I have finished another block in my "oldemors fotoalbum" (granny's photoalbum). I now have just 3 more blocks to finish before I start putting it together. So I think I start like Hanne, to focus on just a few projects on my summer vacation.
I also spent a lot of time in my sewingroom this weekend, preparing the 3 first blocks on the Gingham Girls BOM.
And I have been playing with my idea for the Stitchers Angels projects this weekend. My roses are traced on the fabric and I will start to stitch it really soon :) Sneak peak.........not yet :)
Saying for today:
- A rose is for today,
golden threads of friendship are forever.
