Wednesday block finished…ohhh…this is so fun…On this one I used buttons from my grandmother…so now I have a little piece from her in this quilt…
Have to show you what I got yesterday from my friend Åsa… We have been trying to meet ever since my birthday…and finally we made it…!! Look at this…
…aint the presents beautiful wrapped… I could hardly open them…


…and the cards…soooo…beautiful… isn´t theese old cards really something!! I just love them…
And the saying on the other card…that sure is right!! We had a lovely time…catching up on the past…We have to meet soon…!!! She wants to learn how to quilt..and I have promised her to learn…so what are we waiting for…;D

And what was in the presents… Lovely vintage boots made by her and
the cutest bear in lovely spring colours…and a beautiful saying….
Thankyou Åsa for you lovely gifts…

Today we have a perfect weather some sewing, stitching or reading …the wind blows…snow is whirling around the house… Spring seems to be …I don´t know…not in the north of Sweden anyway…

It´s Tuesday today……finally got this block ready…it has been on tour…first to Arjeplog and had it with me this weekend to Finland…so it has travelled around a bit…
I loved to sew on this one…I love to add things to all my stitcherys and quilts…have to stop myself from time to time…otherwise it will be full of small details all over…maybe some more frenchknots…and perhaps some grass…and maybe …No …I won´t add any more…I think…;D

Have to say that I´m a bit envious of my dear friend Louise who is going to Chicago tomorrow on this big (!) International Quilt Festival this wekend…
Hope someday it will be my turn to go…;D Wish you all the luck and take a LOT of photos and bring a HUGE amount of ideas with you home…I will sit and wait by the phone…*LOL*
Have a really wonderful time…love you…and take care…
Hope you all are well out there in blogland and are having a really creative week…
Good luck with whatever you are working on…

Still at home with a foot who is slowingly getting better..I hope…So a little sewingtime for me it is…even if my son is at home free from school…Easter holiday…so I can´t sew all day…
Finally got started on this pattern from Cheri Saffiote Payne…thanks to Lea in Japan…I saw it on her blog ..and decided to make my version of it…
…so instead of My Country Week I guess I will have to call it something else…Shabby Primitive Week or something like that…;D…Have made all the backgrounds and prepared another block…so I can sit with my foot up high (mothers order…and the doc)..
And look at theese beauties…some lovely fabrics for me…Simplicitys woven…*LOL*
And now I really need to do some washing…:( I don´t like that..but really have to…Hope that you all have forgotten my promise about washing fabrics…;D

My giveaway presents has arrived at their new homes…safe and sound I think…you can find them here and here
