on whats happening here at my place…
Continuing the crazy stuff…
Butterfly Garden No 2..:o))
And this is progress so far…
making it more green than my first one and a little bit darker…
I think…:O)))
I exchanged the block stitcheries with pinwheel blocks,
to save myself some time.. and I must say I love it!
Home with my cold/eyeinfection caused by virus
 for at least some more days…Doc´s orders!
Trying to rest and do a little studies for school, so it is slow sewing..
but trying to sew whenever I can!

part three… here we go…. :o)
Loved the windows in the house and there was already beautiful white curtains there…
but I wanted to add a little something..
So I made paper mobiles ….hearts from old books ( love books..:o)
Loved to watch them swirl in the windows…
“Paper mobiles”
In the windows I had two “Framed little mini quilts”
made from a Bareroot Pattern…
Between the windows …
I had a little worktable for me… with some small items on…
“Love my Tea”
bag  made from a pattern by Christine Book…
( hope this was right… correct me if I am wrong..)
And a matching “Wrap for my Tea Mug”….
“Jar Pincushion”
And I borrowed Maricas pincushion that I made from a Jar…
and put a little mini quilt inside…
And above all this I hung the quilt I worked day and night with …just to get finished for the exhibition….
 I so knew that it would be just perfect for these walls and the light in the house….
(And at my place too…lol..)
“Butterfly Garden”
made from a pattern by Leanne Beasley….
Ahh.. and I am soooo pleased to have this one finished… started this one …
2008… after having a class with Leanne in Trysil, Norway in 2007…
Here are some close ups….
During the class in Norway… Leanne made special blocks for us who had this class…
and I decided to use mine and my partners in crime (who also attended)…
Louise and Marica… :o) in this quilt
 so I just swapped some of the butterfly blocks for these special blocks…
Mine is the one with the Sunflowers… :o)
I added a bee and some more lavender to the block….
Maricas block is the one with the Lupins and Louise´s with the Cosmos…
I also changed the stitched quilt blocks…  and used an off white linen as background and a pale pink/white thread from DMC… wanted the quilt to have a very light and almost sun faded look…
Here it is …in all its glory…
I am so pleased with how it became…
It was very hard to take photos of the quilt…
both because of the light from the windows… and the quilt itself being so light…
but I hope you can see some of it …
For the first time I used Swedish for the sayings in the block…
I dont mind the English at all… but it was fun having it in my own language…
At my work .. they made two lovely little rocking chairs from two kitchen chairs…
just made rocking runners for them…
Clever idea… and they were just perfect and comfy too… :o)
Had my Angels story with me… and thought I might be able to take a stitch or two during the show…but it was to difficult to start and stop all the time so I crocheted instead… :o)
I also had my Gardeners Journal Blocks with me.. but oh I totally forgot about them… sorry girls..:o))
(I do have LOTS to catch up on now .. haven’t I… my Stitch-a-long-girl -friends!!)
In one of the chairs my very much Loved little Bunny sat and kept count on all the visitors…
“Bunny”
is made from a pattern by Rosalie Quinlan…
isn’t she cute..:o)
Ok.. are you still with me?????
Hope so…. so you didn’t fall asleep!!! ;o)
Corner again…
and some bags…
My blue summer bag…
“Beauty of a Flower”
also from a pattern by Rosalie Quinlan
And a recently made bag from a pattern by Keyka Lou….
and believe me…I hate making bags… (ask my friends…)
but with this pattern so very well described..  I made it and without ANY problems..:o)
“Bucket Bag”
Made in fabrics all recycled… ;o)
Thin old curtains in some strange polyester mix…
But it worked Super!!
Just have to add the button I missed  to sew on before the show…;o)
And this is the bag I worked on for my design education…
see .. I made a bag all by myself… and I just told you..
hate making bags..lol…
Recycling all the way here too…
stitcheries… and ribbons and ricrac and lace …buttons..lots of them… and old crocheted tablecloths…
Ohh.. so much fun I had making this one.. adding this and that all the time…
“Stina´s Bag”
 Ok.. this will have to be it for today..lots of photos for you to see.. hope you liked some of them..:o)
2 walls left to show in this room…
so I´ll be back with some more pics later…. and leave you with the picture from the corner….
Hugs to you my friends..
Bye!!
