Tell me I’m late posting …because that is exactly what I do….😉 better late than never! 

I made this quilt for Marica in February… using a quilt pattern called  Nested Churndash…made by Jane Davidson.

Wanted to make this block for myself and bought the pattern a long time ago… still time though…😉…now it seemed to be a nice little quilt to give away …and I so enjoyed making it! 

Love the fabrics and colours in this one…low volumes, pinks, greys and …blacks…☺️ I know I have said no blacks in my quilts..but I’m taking it all back..it’s beautiful ☺️❤️☺️

A tiny tiny churndash start…

More rounds added…


Would look fantastic for a whole quilt! 

 

I like the straight line quilting..it’s graphic… and requires little thinking… suited me fine at the moment 😉


Lots of favourite fabrics in this one…💗


Happy I managed to make this gift at one of my more hectic and chaotic months… I might start to believe that you are stronger than you think you are! 💗 ( at least when looking back and some time have passed ) 💗

But first… Hope you all have had a wonderful Christmas!! 💗

I had a lovely time..not the way we had planned it to be…a walk down memory lane celebrating Christmas in Grannies house with all of the clan… didn’t happen…a stomach flu stopped that…so next Christmas we will try again…☺️ this Christmas was spent at my daughters new house and with my children. 💗❤️️💗

This year have just passed, can’t figure out how, and am realising it’s soon 2017… and I long for that. Can’t wait for 2016 to end, it have had it moments and I see the light…so I’m welcoming a new year! ☺️

Talking about years… Scandibee year…💗 my second year with this fantastic group of lovely quilters has come to an end and I have not posted pictures of all the lovely blocks made within this group.

I can not describe the feeling of happiness when finally being able to start a creative process…💗 a relief and big big sigh of “let go” can finally leave me.

With many months of disbelief in myself, a feeling of will this ever be good, a roller coaster with emotions and sickness… I can now say I am on to something ( cross my fingers and hope I’m not too quick here) at least something have happened. Feel more at ease, not loosing weight anymore…which means I can eat ( still on my strict diet), have filled up my levels of vitamins and minerals, getting support for my stressed adrenals..and lots more. Still have a hopeless thyroid… But can’t have everything…Sleep is better…instead of just a couple of hours ..it have now doubled! ☺️ hmmm..still have a lot to work on there..but crossing fingers… ☺️ lets hope I’m on my road to recovery and not sidetracked all the time!

Sewed I said!!

Yes yes yes…I’m making BLUEBERRIES!!!

 

This Summer/Autumn I found a closeby place with blueberries when walking Molly, picked for breakfast ( both Molly and me…she LOVES blueberries 😉 ) and we have enjoyed lots. Blueberries have always been my favourite, no allergies there..thank goodness…

So when I saw a picture of the Australian Homespun Magazine and a quilt made by Sarah Fielke… I just saw blueberries …no apples…but BLUEBERRIES… ☺️

Started sewing at once…and I’m in LOVE..they are the cutest ever! 

Haven’t come that far…and for now I’m just sewing for fun!! Have no plan what so ever…do we need that? NOPE!!

And what was it that got me into all this sewing….it was my SCRAPS! One day I just picked one box of colours…happened to be a blue one… So from now on…do not EVER underestimate the POWER OF SCRAPS! They got me playing.


And more scrappy happenings happened…  But more of this another time… Now I do need to try and find out if I can post my blogpost from the WordPress app… More fingers crossed!!

See you all lovelies!
