Goodies in the mail and more butterflies

Saturday the mailman put something really nice in my mailbox. It was my prize from the Quilting Gallery contest :)

The prize was a layer cake from Fat quarter shop. I had difficulties deciding which layer cake I wanted so I told them to surprise me. And I am soooooooo happy with the Lumiere de Noel layer cake they sendt me :) These fabrics are so beautiful and I have to find a Christmas project that is perfect for these fabrics.

Thank you all of you that voted for my quilt.

I guess you are getting bored with all my butterflies :) This have really been my focus project this summer, and I am starting to see an end of it.

The last week I finished mini no 1, 3, 4, 5 and 7 on unite 8. Mini no 6 and 7 have the applique done and just the stitchery left. Mini no 2 have all the applique waiting to be done (hopefully this evening. And then there are all the blocks on unite 9 left before it is finished.

Now I really look forward to start another project. I still have my Autumn Houses that was ment to be my focus project this summer. Just one block left there to applique. But I know I will continue with my butterflies until all are done.

I have a lot of on going project in my drawer that should been given priority. But summer vacation come and went too fast. Even though the weather have not been the very best, I have not spent much time in my sewingroom. In a way I kind of look forward to the autumn and winter because I know I get so much more done in my sewingroom. But still I want more sun and heat because I am not ready yet for the autumn.


Saying for today:

Hallo May Britt, I like the fabric you have received! It will interesting to see what you are going to make from it. I can understand you are looking forward to a new project, BOM quilts sometimes take a long time to finnish and one gets fed up with seeing the same thing! I am getting little impatient with the "birds" on mine, I have 4 more to do.

I never get sick of your butterflies. I need to start mine soon.

I LOVE your butterfly quilt. It is beautiful! I always start thinking of the next project before finishing the current one. Sometimes I start many projects and have few finishes. Love this quote from Sister Hinckley, what an amazing woman she was. I hope that you have many sunny days ahead, so when fall sets in you're excited and ready for it.
