Another

I've knitted another Annis, this is my third and I like them more and more.

Then I'm ready to start and sew a new quilt I've had in my mind for quite a while. We'll see how it'll turn out in the end.
And finally I've posted my gift's in the F-R-I-E-N-D-S swap. I hope it'll soon arrive so it could be revealed!

See ya!

My very first

Here you have my very first attempt of a hexie. It's also a sneek peek for one of the swap's I'm in.


I've wanted to try hexies for a long time but have thought they would be difficult. They're not difficult at all when you've done the preparation and are ready to sew. I will most certainly make some more!

QBSA - June and July

When I was ready to send the June block to Noelene I read the mail that said what she wanted, one more time. And noticed that I had started with the wrong colour, so back to the machine and start over. Therefore I sent her two blocks. I hope that she's pleased with them even if they don't look the same!

And when I opened the envelope from her it turned out she had sent me two blocks also because the first one (storm at sea) had turned out a bit small. Thank you Noelene I do love them both!














For June Elizabeth wanted any star block, so I made her a Pat's star (Quilter's cache). And it turned out as it should. I hope you like it, Elizabeth!

From Elizabeth I got a really nice Storm at sea block, thank you so very much!

FNSI - July report



I've finally finished this wall hanging.

I actually started it a few years back and am so pleased with it now that it's finished!

The pattern I found in an old Patchwork & Quilting from March 2006.

The fabric with the bees on it is so nice and really perfect fo the quilt I think!

It's a perfect summery quilt for the kitchen

Photo challenge - sunday

This is the last day of the challenge and it says HANDS.
There was only one son at home when I got my camera ready and he had already washed his hands (even if it doesn't show).
This last week he has had black hands every day when coming in from the garage. I think he climbs inside of the motor's he is working on! That's his profession also so you can see why he has a hard job to get his hands really clean.
I had to put my own hand in the photo too. And in this house we're really grateful of our hands since we're using them a lot!

It takes time

I do see the end of my work even if it takes a lot of time to crochet all the squares together.

There is 236 squares in the pile and I'm gonna use 234 to put it together like this!


I think it's gonna be a very nice blanket when it's finished!







Photo challenge - thursday



Today's challenge was under, and it's the same word in english. Here I'm taking a photo standing under the cherry tree. This year there won't be many to pick, and it's a shame because they're so yummie.

The swedish word under could also mean miracle - So here you have my three miracles!

Today they're 16, 18 and 22 years old. And here's a close up of them.



 
Yes, they do warm my heart so very much!

Photo challenge - wednesday


Todays challenge was Way home.

I only have 3 km's to my work and drive along the lake the whole way. I always enjoy the scenery driving back and forth. Well, maybe not when it's raining. Or pouring as it's been every other day here now. Not very far from here it's flooded and road's are floating away.

The second photo is from my drive way when getting back home.

I had visitor's this afternoon so it was perfect to have something extra to go with the coffee!

July already


but still waiting for the summer to arrive. So I've knitted another shawl, an Annis and this is my second one but in a very different yarn than before. The other one was knitted in a quite thick yarn of cotton and silk and this time I knitted in a lace yarn. I'm very pleased with this one too and it's really needed around my neck. Still waiting for the sun and warmth to come! Maybe if I repeat it often enogh it will come.

And have you seen such a sweetie that smells so lovely, but be aware of all the thorns!
               





This is the view I had when I left town the other day!
