The weather was so nice on tuesday. We sat outside in the sun stitching, and I had of course forgotten my sunglasses back home. so that's why I have that grin on my face. A little bit difficult to stitch with the sun in my eyes.

I have some ideas on what to design for you, and I look forward to see what the other designers are up to.
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.

But then we thought of the river running nearby her cabin. Perhaps try for a bath there. And so we did............and the water was so warm. Not very deep, but we was able to chill off the heat. We went back into the water early this morning even though it was only 15 C in the air and starting to rain........(norwegian vikings LOL)Today when driving home from the cabin we drove by Laila for a little visit. And of course we had to have an inspection in her sewingroom. I am so happy I'm not the only one with a lot of projects. We get new ideas all the time.

One thing I have noticed visiting all the OPAM blogs. There is actually 23 blogs that has removed the badge. I guess that means you do not want to participate anymore. Some ladies have mailed me and Kris and told they want to leave the challenge, thank you for telling us.
But the rest of you have done a faboulous job with finishing projects. Even though a lot of you have no finshes this month the total amount of finishes is 397. That's great. And I have already noticed july finishes listed in the sidebar.
