    Så härligt att se dig och dina fina bilder och texter.Ser att du har en blomma att applicera. I förra veckan kom jag på hur en tråkig quilt ca 40×40 skulle kunna piffas till och med en blomma,som den du klippt ut ,i varje hörn och blev den faktiskt superbra. Kände mig tom stolt.
    God fortsättning till dig med kram frän Louise D

  2. Hello!
    Greetings from California :) I just found your blog and I really like your style…..I look forward to following you. I am thinking about joining the modern medallion, I just bought the pattern. I am new to the “blog world”….don’t have one yet….but thinking on how to make one and join the fun. I am a new quilter with a huge stash that needs some sewing :)!!
    I raise Bernese Mountain Dogs and have imported them from Europe. I have friends who are breeders in Sweden…..if I ever get to visit them… well, perhaps we will have a chance to meet in 2015 -August when I come to visit them.
    Hope you are feeling better and I can’t wait to see your sewing….I too am just coming around after health problems. Hope I can keep up !!

    I just this minute found you blog and it is charming! I am in love with the happy tree quilt. My husband’s family was originally from Sweden so I have a soft spot for Swedish goods: embroidery, Christmas cookies, pickled herring and on and on….

Hej...love to hear from you... :)
