I tackled the next block for Scandibee…the August block for Mariana in Spain (@cosertejercrear) … and I had been such a good girl and prepped these before I left  home… :) …guess what…well did I cut the right sizes? … NOPE… of course I didn’t… so we tried to see if Louise had the same fabrics… but not…so I did what I (and Louise) does when running out on something…we piece it!

I don’t mind at all I think it adds to a quilt..but not everyone likes it…so I’m not sure Mariana does…if not I will sew another block for her… What do you do? Rip it up and sew totally new fabrics to the block? Or like us? Maybe something else…share please. 


Do you see where it is pieced? If I hadn’t told you…would you have noticed? 😉

Nice to have caught up on the Scandibee blocks… Septembers block instructions are coming any day now… :)

Enjoyed seeing some of Louise’s new made quilts…

Love this colour combination… 💗  This is a quilt made from joining in on a sew-a-long on Instagram and on @fixer_of_old_quilts feed.  Love Louise’s happy colour choices.

And finally I got to see the quilt Louise did in the class we had with Krista Hennebury here two years ago… which reminds me that I haven’t finished mine… it will come :)

Isnt this clever… sewing her initials into the border of the quilt… 
This quilt is a happy splash of colours!! Makes me jump with joy! Happy happy happy :) 

Next quilt is her latest quilt made from Bonnie Hunters mystery quilts… she has done quite a few of them…how many I don’t know…Louise you have to share how many you have made  :)  This quilt is called En Provence… 

See if you can see the pieced fabric here… 

You can imagine the lavender fields don’t you … it’s a beauty…

This is a dose of what I got at Louise’s … love the menu.. :) more of that!
Will show what I started when being with Louise in my next post… see you

to finally get my acts together and drive down to Östersund and visit Louise… all I can say is that I didn’t remember how far it was… 😉 phew… it took me 9 hours… 

Have feared driving because of my headaches… now it was time to test myself and just do it! And I did it!! Yay to me! 

Beautiful art by @parscaeli

Of course I got tense and got headaches but that was minor to my happiness of being with my beautiful friend Louise…

Had a lot to catch up on… sharing this and that under some quilts in her lovely garden watching her husband and son build on their new patio… 


Found some quilts that I have made at the house… that’s happiness…


Love her warm cosy friendly home filled with lovely quilts everywhere… this one brought lovely memories from a trip we made to Trondheim and took a class with Gail Pan and Leanne Beasley… how fun wasn’t that! Isn’t it gorgeous!


A work in progress… some Splendid Sampler blocks added with added blocks of her own ..and it’s a pink burst of joy!


Ain’t this one just it… a typical Louise quilt in her pinks and blues with a splash of yellow!


We also managed some sewing the first days… in between catching up, rest and the busy life in the Short family with visitors, visiting and sleeping over grand children and Louise’s care of her parents… this family does everything with the heart and fills me with such peace and love

July Scandibee blocks made by both me and Louise for May Kristin in Norway (@krispquilt) ….Lots of Flying Geese in a lovely colour way in greys and aqua.

Thanks for being all this to me Louise…

More to come in another blogpost … see you!

Sorry for the delay…got interrupted by beautiful weather…and I needed to be out and enjoy the sun 😊


Stag Nation Quilt… happy to have this quilt delivered now…and with that I can share it too… I was so excited to deliver it I hadn’t time to get myself a quilt holder 😉 so the pics will have to do… but managed with a bit of creativity…

Early morning I set my goal to our little town square and took a few pics…

Like this picture…think the colours came out best here…

Bleeding hearts isn’t that a pretty flower? I do love the birds in the crown of the stag…

Found this little sitting bench in the shades… loved it… rustic but also pretty. Did try to hang the quilt in the lilacs too but was more sun there… so it was more challenging taking a good photo…

Happy I could stretch the quilt in the branches…had some hooks with me and the ever trusty safety pins 😉

And another close up …the beads do look good doesn’t they… :)

Background shining through a bit..but hey…that’s how it is and supposed to be…lol…

Decided to go back to another little park…the Daniel Solander park, yepp that Solander that sailed on the Endeavour and happens to be an ancient relative to me… a bit of history lesson 😉

The smell was heavenly at this park..the roses and the lilacs…had to sit in the sun for a wile just to enjoy!

Another close up…love the look of the sparkly crown …

And this pic will make me remember the lovely smell…and the gorgeous day I took photos in this beautiful little park. Flowers…they makes me happy! 

Walked on to my daughters house…took pictures on the way…but none really turned out great…took its time so daughter called and ask where I was…ooops…hmmm… 😉 I was the one telling her to get up early…lol..because I was coming by… 😉

But I think I was forgiven when coming with a gift… 😉 it’s always such a happy feeling giving a quilt away and to see the happiness when giving … and she got really happy…she even did go out in the woods with me trying to get a good photo of the quilt… let’s say the photos became so so…we were in way too much hurry…and there were ants too… 😉

Here she is…Petra… and her quilt Stag Nation in pink …:)

Cant wait to see it hang in her makeup room on her sparkly wallpaper when everything will be finished in there…shall try and take picture of it then… wish me luck 😉 

Happy summer to all of you…enjoy sunshine and rainbows … whatever that inspires you… be here and now and take care!


Over and out from me with a picture of my peaceful and wonderful balcony … one chair for Molly and one for me… 😉 Btw…do you see all the lovely flowers… they were a gift by the lovely couple Mr and Mrs Sherratt… happiness indeed!! So happy :)
