Just caught up on lost time together…
Taco dinner…glass of nice white wine…
Chatting and Downtown Abbey…
Dark chocolate…
Off to bed after midnight…

Up in the morning to a set table and breakfast…
and after that a look into my bag…
Yarns…
Decided to see if I could restart my granny squares…
Totally forgotten all about how to join

So while I browsed the Internet for some info…
Marica looked into the books I got in the mail

More chocolate…;0)
Lovely new books…

And dream of future projects…maybe..;0)

made from a swap between myself, Marica and Louise…
When we went to Norway last Year.. we decided to swap some miniblocks between us…
one quilt is finished.. and this is the second one…
I chose little baskets…  the block is 4 1/2 inch big.. or small..:o)
I made four blocks and in return I received
four from both Louise and Marica…
all soooo lovely…:o))
The blocks have been on my designwall in periods..
 and this Autumn I decided it was time for the quilt to get finished..
So I have been picking up pieces of scraps that have whirled on the floor from time to time.. and they have been getting new places each time..:o)
But Now it was TIME…..
And here is my Friendship Basket Quilt…
Thanks to Louise and Marica for the lovely and sweet little baskets…
without you ..this quilt wouldnt have been born!!
Thanks girls for all the fun!!
Pattern by Kathleen Tracy from the book Remembering Adelia
Think its a sign of Spring..
the first one.. and I´ll stick to that..
even if the snow is whirling outside..
and  Spring is at least two  and half months away!!!
Workweek coming up..
Will be tough to get up in the mornings…
smile in the snowstorm.. and the cold..
but I´ll do my best..:o))
