so Im better thank you!!!
Have been home all week.. not being able to sew anything..
strange feeling… :o)
But have been organizing things in the sewing room..
which was pretty much needed…
It looked like a bomb was dropped after
my packing to Norway and my homecoming!!!
SIGH!!!
What do my kids learn about this behavior!!! lol..
Dont do like your mother!!! :o)
Ok..
Finally have everything packed up…
and this is what I bought…
Gails new fantastic book
oh..lots of things are going to be made from this one!!!
Love baskets!!!
Have lots of them ..filled with sewing related things..
all over the house…
A new scissor.. and I found a pink one.. says its for paper..
but works perfectly in fabric..  I tried..lol..
Some new applique needles
that they say are the best!!!
And new lovely fabric to play with!!!!
I think it says Stina on every one of them..lol…
Got my blocks made from the class up on the
design wall yesterday…
Hopefully I can manage to cut out some squares
for the  pinwheels today…
Will take a photo later… :o)
Earlier this week I got mail from USA..
and she was so kind to send out her new pattern
“Mockingbirds”
to every one that had commented on a post of hers
about Mocking birds…
and well I didn’t know a thing… :o)
but got one anyway!!!
THANK YOU LYNDA!!
and it´s signed… :o)
She has so wonderful patterns and I love them all..
she has some new ones that I think I have to buy!!! :o)

Things have gone back to normal here…
All the fun from the class I have saved in my heart..
and will keep me smiling all winter…

Thanks girls for a fantastic weekend!!!!
A fantastic adventure and filled with a lot of VITAMIN Q
we headed home to Sweden..
first stop in Östersund…slept over…
In the morning we took some last photos and
played a little in Louise sewingroom
(we found lots of wonderful little blocks laying around…lol)
setting up a new challenge between us…
Louise, Marica and Me
…making small blocks and exchange them…
this will be so much fun!!!
After that we took our machines to the Sewing machine Doc…
Maricas machine became “rigid operated”
(screen light in just one option)
but OK…:o)
And mine a little adjusted…
and hopefully a happier machine!!
And then we sat our goal..to HOME!!
After 10 miles.. we needed a break.. Ok I did..
bought ice cream…
YUMMY…
Temptation it was…
But who knew we were heading for snow just 20 miles later
Yikkees!!!! Brrrrrr…
Came to Marica at evening…
Thanks to you Marica for driving all the way
a total of circa 145 swedish miles…
Crazy ..but oh so much fun…
Slept over and took bus home …
and that was nice too..having been
 a “little” missed..:o)
The not so fun part was all the plumbing I had to do…
dishwasher didn’t work..
and guess what.. he saved that for me…:o(
But after two days.. fiddling with it.. it worked!!!
SMILES!!!!
Have I packed up yet then…
NO..
Had hope for yesterday.. and yesterday for today..and this morning I hardly got out of bed… Lumbago!!! :o(
So today everything goes VERY slowly!!!
But I will pack up!!!
Need to see what I bought!!! :o)
