Sometimes, you just get blown away by generosity…and that’s exactly what has happened to me… I am truly blessed with fantastic friends both at home and out in the world. And I have said it before…Life is a Patchwork of Friends… ❤️ and among quilters it’s all that and way more.

What started with a picture sent from one of my American friends …ended up with the most wonderful gift given to me… and I’m so so happy…because I’m not that fond of making bags and things like this…makes my head knot itself!

So enjoy all these pictures!! ❤️❤️❤️

Isn’t this totally amazing… pretty pretty letters , made in my absolute favourite colours…and low volume goodness! 

The letters are from a pattern by Diane Bohn and you can find it here… they are 3″tall. And paper pieced…☺️ not my favourite method…but my friend ensured me …that they aren’t that hard to make… do have the pattern myself ..maybe it’s time to start using it… ?


A Sewing case!! And the prettiest ever! And it’s all mine! ❤️ Do you think I made a happy little dance? It was almost a rave-party…???


And the clever inside… see through vinyl pockets… ❤️ and turquoise/blue gorgeousness…and filled with the cutest little basket block, wonder tape..so I could try and sew a case of my own using this clever tape…and cute labels! 

What case…what case I hear you ask… ? and the case you can find for free HERE … isn’t that great! 

And this is the fantastic outside of the case, with sewed little cute blocks… I’m so in love  ?


Beautiful little blocks…? geese and nine patch… and the pretty pretty low volume fabric ❤️️

And a little pink star and some strawberry cake ☺️…love strawberries…❤️️

And this text… ❤️️ love it… be your own hero..and be a good friend…unwrap it with a grateful heart…( do you think I did that❤️️)  couldn’t be better… ❤️️ so much thought put into this.

And if  the case wasn’t enough…these beautifully colour coordinated fabrics came..a mix from stash and bought fabrics… I’m stunned and almost without words…needed a week to put all this into words… and make this blogpost.

I now see that I missed to take a photo of a pattern, an apron/tunic/dress she sent along ..remembering I had it pinned on Pinterest..I’m impressed… thankyou so much for all this my sweet friend… My friend wants to be anonymous but I do think her stuff need to be shared so we can be inspired by her lovely work… I hope you have enjoyed looking at this…

And this is the pic she sent me that started this off… eight gorgeous and beautiful cases…lots of prettiness! Isn’t it amazing!! It’s WOW! 

 Thankyou dear friend for all this! ???

    An incredible gift and so very thoughtful. I feel touched just reading about it. You clearly inspired her to make something special. Quilting friends are the best!!

  4. What a lovely gift, I’d be drawn to that colour combination also, I’m guessing it is the cosmetic bag with the vinyl international that she adapted into the sewing case. Have fun with it.

    Flott syveske du har laga. Prøvde å finne mønsteret via linken, fann ikkje akkurat lik den du har laga, lurer på om det er denne: Mini Jewelry Roll??

  9. Wow Stina – you’re a lucky girl – that case is beautiful!!!

  10. Oh, Stina! I am so delighted for you and feel your joy in receiving such a thoughtful and beautiful gift. What a treasure! Your friend is amazing and I bet she is doing a happy dance knowing you love what she made and sent. Hugs to you both for spreading love and joy!

  11. Ahhhh-mazing Stina! What a beautiful little bag — you lucky girl!!!
