Books, Scraps

Yummy for me….

Summers bliss
Strawberries from the North of Sweden..
so much sweeter than other ones…
Grown under midnight sun…
they receive a special taste…
Nothing better!!!

This is what DH came home with last night…
Delicious Strawberries!!!!

… and the same day… some more “yummy” things came …
fiesta for the eyes and mind!!!

Kim Diehls new book Simple Comfort
and Folk Art Favourites from Joined at the Hip…
and a pattern….
Sweet Dreams
Have waited so long for these ones to come…
but now they are here…

… have to read them a little bit more.. and decide what to make.. and WHEN!!!
The Sweet Dreams quilt I have seen on Sintas blog..and fell in love with it.. so
I ordered the fabrics in last blog entry to use for it…
Want some more home alone evenings… !!!!

A little sewing have been done…
needed to test sew my small 1 1/4″ squares to something…

…and I chose nine patches..
Love them.. .
Think I will use this design… simple and easy…
don´t know if I will make it bigger.. or just make a little doll quilt!!!

See you…

  8. Oh, those strawberries look soooo good. We're past our season now so I'm a little sad. I'm very intrigued about how different strawberries grown under the midnight sun would be. It sounds wonderful…blissful even.I am resisting Kim Diehl's new book…but just barely. I'm not sure how much longer I can hold out.
