May update from me…

 Still here…
trying to sew when I have the time…
last week held little time behind the sewing machine 
when Mum was here..
Now she is back at home..  and brother is in charge…
trying to keep her out of work!!
She is doing fine… despite everything…
she will never be able to lift her arm again.. and life feels hard…
Still hope the surgery will do some good!
Well..
what have happened here then…
have had lovely mail from friends…
A couple of weeks ago Mary at Quilt Hollow 
sent me some lovely pink leftovers from her work…
some pretty little pinks…
Ahhh.. this will be some fun to work with…
( havent played with them yet..:o)
Thanks Mary!!!
And I had a date with Mrs Fortuna and won a giveaway  at Ullas Fiber Blog last week…
won fabrics that were like a vitamin injection..;o)
Thanks Ulla… :o)
And this week a surprise came in the mailbox..
it was my swap blocks …
in my swap with Louise and Marica
Four baskets were sent from me
and Louise and Marica made four each for me…
And Ohh.. Girls.. they are just lovely…
THANK YOU!!
just like I imagined them…;o)
Will be fun to put these togehter…
( Marica… yours will come soon…;o)

In between work and family I am still sewing for the exhibition…
having  some finishes.. and sewing on some new things…

It goes really slow now… 
need a little bit more energy and time…
Hope to find it this week..:o)
Have a good time out there…
and be nice..:o)

  3. Härligt att se hur det går för dig 🙂 Många fina vinster och så har du fått dina korgblock.. Louise block är på gång..har en slut dokumenation som måste vara inne senast onsdag men sedan har jag också tid..Vet ju hur det är att göra saker till en uställning 🙂 Min är just avslutad och det gick kanon bra..men som sagt ser framemot mina block när de dyker upp här framöver *s*Kram

  8. I can't wait to see your exhibit patchworks.( It's a patchwork/quilt,isn't it??) Even sneak peak pictures looks wonderful though. :-)I'm sending prayer for your Mum….((HUGS))

  9. The medicals can do so much, turn a man into a woman, and so. But they can't fix your mum's arm? And because they themselves were too late to take a good look?No wonder you are angry, I would be too. I still hope that your mum can do something with her arm.

  10. I left you a comment some day ago, didn't you get it?hi, stina :)I love the bright fabrics, the baskets, and all the work you have done in white, can't wait to see more.. everything is so prettyhope you find the time to sew, soon we have the football world cup, while boys watch tv, you might find some extra time for yourself!!

  11. I am so glad you received some wonderful goodies in the mail. I am praying for your dear Mom…wish they could have gotten the surgery done earlier for her.
