and the Yellow Room….
In this room I decided to have a quilts with a little bit more colour…
well….have in mind Stina colours…:o))
Some you might have seen…some may not…
And I´ll show them anyway!!!
 ok.. first corner… I hung three little quilts made from a pattern made by
Cheri Saffiote Payne
“Bless your Heart 1”
“Faith, Hope and Love”
These three quilts is some of my very favorite quilts…
they just are..:o)
Always makes me smile when I hang them…
“Bless Your Heart 2”
Next to these…
I hung another quilt made from a pattern by Leanne Beasley
“A Quilters Journey”
 Another favorite…
And everything written is so true!!
Thanks Leanne for designing  such wonderful quilts for us!!
In a basket on the floor I had my  quilt made in browns, creme and pink…
Pattern from a Swedish Designer Tyger & Ting
“Old Love”
 Of course I had to have my little Punch Needle pictures at the show that I made for my Mom and Dad… for their 70th birthdays….
“Needle Punch Pictures”
Pictures drawn by my son Viktor and punch needled by me..
another fun mother and son project…  :o)
And my first quilt made out of a Leanne Beasley pattern…
“Leanne´s House”
This quilt gave me such joy to make and it was with a lot of hesitation I had it out for sale… but I am so happy to have it sold to a wonderful woman in Scotland…
Hope she will find it as pretty in her home or at her granddaughters…
Just need to fix the label for her..;O))
(Note to me.. DO IT!! )
It is just.. that I need to make myself a new one!!!  :o))
Right..:o)))
Well that will have to be all from me tonight.

…hope you bear with me some more…  :o)
When I first started to think of what to make for the show.. I knew I would make table mats..  so these were supposed to just that…
BUT….
When adding them on the design wall …
I started to add  a little bit of that … and that…
and THAT…
And I just had so much fun …
That it became four little wallhangings….
The first one Says…
To Sew…
or “Att sy” in Swedish
…and everything on these are all recycled things.. from my Grandmother.. myself… and  might even be from Great Great Grandmother…
Next one says…
…It…
or “det” in swedish
…Is…
or “är ” in swedish
…FUN… :o)
…Skoj… in swedish
 And I sure had fun making them..
they now sit on my wall when going up to my sewing room..:o))
Perfect reminder… to have some fun ! !
One day my Aunt came by and invited me and Guy for a little picnic outside..
It was so welcomed and soo good..:o)
Ok.. next quilt to show..
was to be Carolina Crossroads….
but I didn´t manage to finish the quilt.. but hang it I did…
Must have forgotten to take photos of that one.. but when its finished I show…:o)
Next quilt I made for my friend Louise when she had her 50th Birthday
 Think its an old Meme´s quilt pattern…
She had just made a quilt in pink…blue…
and I thought this one might match her quilt…
Louise´s Flowers
Next quilt was made to my daughter Petra for her 15th birthday…
when she had her Stars and Stripes period…
Shirts collected from my Dad and even from myself.. and brothers jeans.. and lots bought at second hand stores..
So enjoyed making this quilt.. it was so fun…
but do also remember the clipping of the seam allowances..
PHHEEWWWWW…
and the worrying for washing…and emptying in the dryer!!!
But it turned out wonderful!!!
(And heavy!!!!! :o)
 Petras Täcke
And todays last quilt is my Roundabout Schnibble…
I call it Turnabout…
since I changed  the size and made it bigger….
Think these were all quilts in this room…
Have some more to show from this room..
the table were I had my things for sale..
but I think we take it another day… :o)
Because now I am going to sew some..
The guys are at a tennis competion in Skellefteå.. and they happily left me home alone…
Guy weekend… with camping in the car.. and no room for mama..;o)))
Have a Schnibble to work on…
and right now I can not even come up with what fabrics I want to use…
SIGH…
Maybe I go outside and stitch some instead… and it will come to me..
See you…

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!!
