Birthday, Family, Louise, Molly

…and the party kept going and going…

SURPRISE!!!!
Guess who stood on our doorstep the morning after…
This little cutie pie with all her brothers and parents
I do know I have a crazy brother…;0)
but I never thought they would come for a visit…
and especially not that early they came…
( around nine o’clock )

he must have milked the cows with the speed of lightning
and I don’t think I want to know how fast he drove
the 23 Swedish miles to our place…pheeww…
But I’m happy they came…
now I finally could see and hold baby
Snöfrid for the first time
Lovely hairdo this morning…:0)
Jarl, the oldest …
digging in on the best breakfast they had eaten…
cake and cupcakes…:0)
This is brother number two, Agnar
(Who loves pink…:0)
with his mother Anna in the background…
And the third guy Seved
who never stops talking…;0)
This is my youngest brother Gussar
the happy father of Snöfrid
The younger boys were so much more interested in Viktor playing…
than talking to us…:0)
The rest of us took turns in carrying baby Snöfrid…
Anders …:0) a proud uncle
And Louise
took the opportunity to cuddle some with the baby…
And back to the parents again…
This picture is kind of funny…
it looks like we have the baby hung in a rope…
but not…it’s the lamp…:0)
Even Molly found time to enjoy little Märtas visit…:0))

No more surprises…
but I must say…all of them …
have been the most lovely surprises!!

And to finally meet this little beautiful girl
It was wonderful…
Thanks brother and family!!!

Maybe we should do this all over again…lol…

Kind of sad when everyone was leaving…the guests…
mum and dad…
Anders to Stockholm …
Happy I still had Louise here for one day more…:0)

Love to all…and
thanks for stopping by…

—XOX—
 
Great granny along, Molly

Sewing with Molly…pheeeww..

 Sewing time…
For me and Molly…

Not easy for this puppy to be neglected…
So so hard …:0)
She is every where …
 
But somehow I managed to sew all my blocks…

Added four to my last eight…

Decided to stop at twelve ….

Are we finished now???
Please…

Huhhhhhhh…please….

One more Molly… Patience…;0)))

Smile…
I have twelve blocks!!!!
Feels great!!!!

Ok….Molly …

Yepp Yepp Yepp!!!!:0)

Louise, Molly, Quilts

Remembering my days in Östersund…

Took me some days to land after my lovely trip to 
John and Louise in Östersund ….

Smiles a lot using my lovely bright and happy
iPad mat!!!

Looking good…right…
and having a nice cup of tea…doesn’t make it worse…:0)

Days here are very Autumn like…
Colour changing, foggy mornings and a chilly wind blowing..
Gloves, cap and even my winter jacket 
is on on my walks with Molly!!!

But sometimes the sun shines and days are 
kind of pretty

Still haven’t been up to my sewing room yet…
…since our trip…
Days have been filled with lots of therapy and things to fix!!

Think I will have to kick some butts to get me in there…

But I have sewn some…
Hip hip hooray to me…but more on that another day!!!

Today I thought I would show you some eye candy from 
Louise’s home…
And some of her quilts…

Think I have showed this one before…
but I think it can be watched at
Over and over again…don’t you think!!

It’s from a pattern by Lynda Hall

Amazing!!!
Here’s one of her lovely scrappy quilts…
Inspired from one of Bonnie Hunters patterns…
Pheww…these ones are heavy!!!
Ain’t this scrappy love…???
If not I think I have gotten everything wrong…
It is a beauty!!

The quilt was inspired from this quilt in one of Bonnie’s books…
(Sorry don’t remember which one)

She used the middle blocks…
Another quilt was done from the same quilt pattern..
Louise used this time the Jacob’s ladder blocks…

I am so amazed of her talent with colour setting
and how beautiful her quilts are…

(Tip…she has a gorgeous fabric stash…;0))))

Do I have to say..
I love this one too…:0)

Wait wait…
The back of the quilt…;0)

Genious use of left over blocks…
Wasn’t this something to smile about…
Thought so…
I still do…

And I promise you…
I have more to show…

See you around!!
Molly

Home again…


Back in Öjebyn again…
All very tired
But very happy for our little getaway…

Many many thanks for all the lovely comments…
Nice to be missed…

Will get back to your comments very soon…

Talking about being missed…
This crazy dog was very happy for our return…

Sweet Molly …
Who’s a big girl now…
She thinks..but we know better…

Still learning to post from my iPad…
So if things do look strange..
You know why!!!

See you soon…

Molly, Winter

Just take a look!!!!
Ehhhmmm!!!

This is not a teeny weeny little hole…
It´s huge!!!!

What on earth have gotten into her…
boredom… 
or her love of fluffy stuffing…  Grrr..
Being a retriever.. I know they do love to chew.. 
and Molly she loves to chew…
She´s been put on a allergy diet…
and this means …
Nothing except her allergy food
through her mouth…
no chewing bones… 
for 8 weeks…
no fun at all…
and then she gets this idea!!
SWEET…:O(
And this she did on just 3 minutes!!!
Holy cow!
