But first things first….
 
HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE!!!
 
Well I don't know where December went …
all I know is that we now have a new and fresh year to make the most of!!
So Happy 2015!!
 
Have let this blog fall into the forgotten land and I hope I can manage myself to post more regular here…do not want to let go of it… But I have to say I love instagram… And that's where I am!!
 
So …what's up then…
The secret Christmas Scandibee Mug Rug Swap
Scandibee…what's that… Well you can read all about that here…
 
My secret partner was Nina With Freckles in Finland…
When finding out that she was the one I was to send to I knew what to make…
Water …and tranquility …. a moment in life just to be here and now…
 
So this is what I made…
 
I try to be more mindful… Light a candle…and just be in the moment…
I do need that …
To release stress in my life…hope I got that feeling with this one…
 
And of course the mug rug have a backside too…
I thought that a meadow would be a lovely place to be at as well..
I know I love that…
 
And Blue and Green
Gorgeous colours …
 
It was a very fun swap…
 
And what did I get…
Well the most wonderful mug rug from Norway…
 
From Synnøve
Do I love it???
 
YES… TO BITS!
 
It is gorgeous…and suits me perfectly…
Do you see the crocheted edge… Love it!!!
Thanks Synnøve!!
 
This have been a very fun swap…
And now we are in to the Scandibee year…
And I am queen Bee for January
and my instructions are sent out to the members..
And now I'm waiting…and waiting for my blocks to arrive…
But that will have to be in another post…
 
So see you soon!!

Ohh…btw …will try and remember to make a little tutorial on how I made the scallops/clamshells!!

Whoooaaaa!!!

I’ve done it …I joined a swap again…
and now I don’t count my friends swap…
because these people know me and I them…
and they know if I need to stress down …
They let me hyperventilate some and
ramble some and it all will go fine… 😉
 
But now I have stretched out my arm again
to the wonderful community of quilters
and joined Scandibee
(Can be found on Instagram and on Flickr where we will share progress)
Feels so much fun and hope we all will have fun
during this year that we will sew for each other!!
 
Scandibee
Obviously we all have some kind of connection to Scandinavia…
either we live here or have …or some other smart explanation!!
 
All set up now and we are ready to go!!
But first we are having a little secret Christmas swap … FUN!!! :)
Have started my secret sewing …
and I have enjoyed every step so far and hope to have a finish soon!!!
So I will only show the first progress of this…
and not show a finished item before my partner have received it!!
 
So see you…
 
(And guess who was that clever to kick this bee off…
Oh yes me… So I’m the Queen Bee for January!!! 😉 )
