but in a new way….
via webcam… :o)
The colds stopped me from going to Maricas house 
where we was supposed to be..
but got a bright idea.. why not try to connect  and bring my friends
( Marica, Cici, Kristina and Lotta)
to my house via webcam… 
and it worked brilliant!!! :o)
It was hard to get some nice photos of my friends…
but I hope I can get them on picture later today..:o)
but you get the point..
it was sooo nice to be able to take part in 
the chatting and seeing what they made…
and hear them… :o)
We sewed  until about 8 pm… when I started to quit for the day…
and so did they… but before that
 they teased me with some pictures of what they had for dinner
cooked by Maricas husband Roger!!
You know.. I was supposed to go away..and MY GUYS always eat…
“Pannkaka” when I am away….
and that isnt my favourite… and that was what was supposed to be at the table this weekend…
but there was some nice leftover for me…;o)
 Earth hour light savings… at 8 30 pm… and after that … no sewing …
just the bed… :o)
Made some blocks during the day for a swap….
with Louise and Marica…
so finally girls… 
they will be on the way!!
And I started something new… 
See you …
The day have started and I am connected via web to the girls today too…
so another sewingday is to begin..:o))
Outside snow is whirling…
more snow…but it is a fantastic sewing weather!!!
See you..

Hmmm…
Quiltweekend  last weekend
and a challenge with scraps from Marica...
She told us before we went to take small scraps with us..
so okidoki I grabbed my small pieces and
wondered what could be made from them… :o)
How was I to know it was going to be something
I definetly needed!!!!
Marica had prepared small bags with
snaphooks, cute buttons…and a tiny little flower…
And this is what it became…
…Lanyards….
Thanks for a fantastic idea Marica..
I have used mine all the time since then…
and it is GREAT!!! :o)
Earlier that week I got this in the mail…
…a fantastic pre Christmas gift…
Pink scissorfob…. Christmas Pincushion..
and sweet red buttons… :o)
from Sandy at
in Argentina…
Thankyou so much Sandy…!!
Ok.. after showing my picture of the quilt in the machine the other day.. I have had lots of questions regarding the black “thing” ontop of my quilt!!!
When we went to Norway last month
I visited my Machine Doc…
and he fixed my machine so I could quilt..Thankyou for that..
but then he also had this …
Ok.. I had looked on it before..and asked and you know all that kind of questions..Is it good…does it work??? And so on..
So he said.. take it home and test…:o)
And so I did…finally.. after backproblems..and whatever…
So did I like it???
Definitely not at first…
didn’t get the hang of it…
(need that DVD… that was supposed to come along with it)
Does anyone else have the Fab-U-motion???
TIPS thankyou!!! :o)
But after a while I kind of got along…
and best of all I could sit pretty long times behind the machine
 quilting with no stress on arms and shoulders…
So I shall quilt one more to test..
but I think I like it! :o)
Took my schnibble out for some air today….
and took pictures…l
..and I have hanged my new quilt on its
place in the livingroom/kitchen…
Do you think husband have seen it yet??? ;o)
Hope for another and better week than the last one..
WITHOUT nasty surprises…
To make long story very short..
Make sure friends are friends…
my daughter found out this the hard way!!
HUGS to you all…

This was a very much needed weekend…
filled with a lot of fun…
first of all my birthday… with so many birthday wishes from you!!!
Thankyou so much!!! :)
And to top that day… what a lucky day…I did win two giveaways!!!
One here and one here
GOSH…two wonderful giveaways!!!
And I was the lucky one on both of them… >:D<>
For the swap we decided to sew six or eight blocks each in colours/patterns of our choice …
and this is my green Tin Man blocks…
…think I will add sashing in cream and a corner square in some colour between the blocks… will have to play a little bit more with them…
Showed Viktor the blocks tonight..and he loved all the green guys!!!
So you did a fantastic work on the blocks!!
Thankyou!!!! :)

And this is Maricas blocks…

…she chose Churndash blocks…and wow this quilt is going to be just wonderful…
I definetly need to make a churndash quilt…
love these blocks… :)

And this is Cici´s blocks…

…and dont you just love these blocks…the pattern is great!!!

And Lotta she gave us all a challenge…to work with some jewel fabrics…
but I think Cicis blocks were more challenging for me… black and white… never wear and almost never use them… the jewel ones I like to dress in…sooo they were a little bit easier…
This is her blocks…

… A Vitamin Kick!!!

The only block´s missing was Kristina´s… will be fun to see them later…

Thankyou girls for a wonderful swap!!!

And as if this wasn´t enough…
Lotta made us all a surprise…
She made us all a Blockholder to keep all the blocks organized during the swap…
and I was the last one to know since I was last on the list… :)
What a surprise!!!This is my Blockholder/keeper… :)
Thankyou so much Lotta!!!

Think this was the most “quiet” quiltweekend ever… :)
Lottas machine was at the Machinedoctor´s…so she handsewed , I stitched all the time… and it was just Maricas machine that was buzzing…
Hmmm…think I will post these photos later…or maybe Marica will post some…
anyway…
hope that you all have had a wonderful weekend…
I sure did!!! :)
Quiltweekends are the BEST!!!
