HI…. Remember me… hope so…
 
Life is still up and down…many things to consider…most important my own health…
Lots of things happening around me…and I do have problem with dealing with stress… Some things have been better and some things not…so life is still under construction… ;)
 
But at least I am sewing…wohoo…
 
So lots of things have happened since last time I was on the blog…
First Scandibee
 
January was my month to decide blocks for the group to sew for me…
So I was Queen Bee
 
I decided on a very easy block…just strips sewn together ….
One coloured block (the makers favourite colour)
and one low volume block was what I wanted to be sewn for me…

My blocks top right next Annika's, Sigrun's, Hanne's, Lizzie's and Ruth's...

 
And oh so much happiness when all the blocks started to drop in my mailbox…
Wow and wow…lots and lots … And Ohhhhh and Ahhhh ….
Smiling from ear to ear…
Do I love my blocks …
or DO I LOVE MY BLOCKS….
LOVE
of course…

Blocks from Anne, Marica, Nina C, Synnøve, Nina M and Belinda...

 
Now to sew them together… And that will be VERY fun…indeed!!!
Here they are all of them…
And now you might get a hint on what I will do with them… ;)
 
 
During my absence in the blog world…
I have also decluttered my sewing space…so now I can breath in here…
feels so much better…
Still not quite finished..have fabrics to sort and pile up in my cupboard…
will show when I'm ready!!
 
See you all…
And big hugs for still hanging around this blog!! :)

HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE!!!
 
Well I don't know where December went …
all I know is that we now have a new and fresh year to make the most of!!
So Happy 2015!!
 
Have let this blog fall into the forgotten land and I hope I can manage myself to post more regular here…do not want to let go of it… But I have to say I love instagram… And that's where I am!!
 
So …what's up then…
The secret Christmas Scandibee Mug Rug Swap
Scandibee…what's that… Well you can read all about that here…
 
My secret partner was Nina With Freckles in Finland…
When finding out that she was the one I was to send to I knew what to make…
Water …and tranquility …. a moment in life just to be here and now…
 
So this is what I made…
 
I try to be more mindful… Light a candle…and just be in the moment…
I do need that …
To release stress in my life…hope I got that feeling with this one…
 
And of course the mug rug have a backside too…
I thought that a meadow would be a lovely place to be at as well..
I know I love that…
 
And Blue and Green
Gorgeous colours …
 
It was a very fun swap…
 
And what did I get…
Well the most wonderful mug rug from Norway…
 
From Synnøve
Do I love it???
 
YES… TO BITS!
 
It is gorgeous…and suits me perfectly…
Do you see the crocheted edge… Love it!!!
Thanks Synnøve!!
 
This have been a very fun swap…
And now we are in to the Scandibee year…
And I am queen Bee for January
and my instructions are sent out to the members..
And now I'm waiting…and waiting for my blocks to arrive…
But that will have to be in another post…
 
So see you soon!!

Ohh…btw …will try and remember to make a little tutorial on how I made the scallops/clamshells!!

Made by my wonderful friend Shirley with the blog
(Click the link to read about her modern tree)
Shirley was one of my proof readers for this free pattern
(You can find the pattern at my sidebar or at my header..
or click the link above…)
When making this pattern I so wanted to make a background
with low volume fabrics…because I just love them…
but it wouldn’t work with a white tree… ;)
So I am so happy to see a tree made with these
warm low volume fabrics…and I must say …
I love it VERY much…
perfect in so many ways…
Gorgeous warm Christmassy colours
and look at her genius quilting…
Wood grain !
And combined with narrow straight stitching…
Looks fantastic!
Love the choice of binding too…pink stripes!!!
So Thankyou Shirley for sharing this tree with me today…
It gives me such pleasure to see how others interpreters the pattern
and make their own tree…
So…if anyone else out there is making this tree…
Please share…
It would make me very happy!!
What a happy day!
See you!!
