A lot of happy tears come when reading
in this lovely gift from my family…

My dear daughter Petra and her Jimmy
Who were so tired this day…
no wonder with all that they had prepared…

Finally somebody had the guts to dig into that delicious cake….
My cousin Ylva’s Sonja was first out…
Mmmmmmm….

And after this…my photographer must have eaten too much cake
and sweets because no more photos were taken on the guests that
arrived later…Hmmmm….but he’s forgotten…:0)

My dear dear best friend Marica came with her husband Roger…didn’t know this…but what did I know??
Not much…:0)

And after them my lovely friends from work came…
Maria and her husband Tommy
and I’m so sorry that there arent any photos of Maria’s outfit…
she NEVER EVER wears pink….
she said…once in a lifetime and just for you…:0))

She had found a pink leatherjacket and a wonderful dress
at work…all recycled of course…
but none the less absolutely perfect

Åsa…had found a sweet soft and dusky pink outfit…

Sara…I think she had her own pink dress…
her daughter had styled her with pretty socks…

And sweet Ulla…who had missed that the party was this day…

Change in weather…

 Weather have changed…
Winter is closing in on us living here 
in the north of Sweden…

Some days it’s snowing and some days it melts…
But for the last days we have had cold days…
Around -8 C…

Molly loves the change of weather…
And I don’t…:0)

No sewing at all here…
Still have those Granny Blocks to sew together…

Have had other things on my mind…
Meetings about my future…
To work or not to work…

So the near future will be a little unsure…
Until all is settled with all instances…

That didn’t stop me from a little shopping…
A girl have to have some fun..right?? :0)

Lovely fabrics in happy fabrics…

Bought a layer cake of Lori Holts latest fabrics…
Yummy everyone of them…
And as usual …no plan at all…
Just happy shopping…:0)
Some solids …to play with..when time comes…

Rainbow colours…:0)
Well…
with all that shopping I need a cup of tea…

Warm and delicious…
And then out in the cold …taking walks with Molly…
In a more and more wintry landscape…
This morning…
Thin ice was on almost the whole river…
Not just around land…
Even I think it’s pretty..:0)

Remembering…pinks…

Instead of doing what I really should have done…
Like sewing my quilt together…
I am
Remembering some pinks…
from my time in Östersund with Louise…

Well..I did have a go with
 the sewing together…all bits and pieces!!
Guess what happens…
RIPPINGRIPPING

YEPP..
Think I’m the only one who doesn’t stop and think…
Just sews happily away…
Seam after seam….smiling..yes yes… I’m sewing!!!!:0)

HUH…
Why didn’t anyone tell me to look at the blocks 
and see how all the seams really should look like…
 With nice meeting seams…
 And not looking like a war zone of seams pointing in all directions!!!
Well…
No one of course…
I ought to know myself..:0)))

If head is stupid ..body will suffer!!!

So I’m remembering pinks instead…:0)

So enjoy some quilts in pink made by Louise!!!

A lovely crisp and PINK little cutie!!!!
Don’t you love the porcelain too…
(Louise…Yepp…I saw the remote…sorry!!)

Think I have showed this one before…
but I think…
It can be on the web again…:0)

A pattern from Cheri Saffiote Payne …
( and on my to do list..:0)

Two adorable little dolls
With quilts…

Another one from 

Free pattern on the blog

But seen in Louise’s colours…it’s like 
A whole new quilt…

And so is this one…
Totally different…

I think it was a sew a long from 
 Some time ago…
Named something with cheddar…
(great memory here)

And I LOVE this version!!!


Here is a quilt where I, Marica and Louise 
swapped some blocks years ago…


Louise did this with her blocks…
So so wonderful!!!

Just beautiful…

Well…
Better stop dreaming my time away…
Thinking PINK…

Can you believe the gorgeousness this pointsettia has…
Couldn’t resist it at the shop!!!
PINK..:0))

I know I know.. Back to my blocks…
I will…
Thank goodness they do have some pinks in them…;0)

The Great Granny Along…

Months and months ago…
I had an urge to sew a Granny Square quilt…
First I saw one made at Blue Elephant Stitches..

And loved it…
And I thought …someday…:0)
Time flew…
and suddenly another teaser of these quilts came…
And this time a Quilt Along…

The Great Granny Along!!!
And this time I joined…and felt …
Yepp I can do this… One block now and then…
A great way to sew something I really wanted to make…
and with not that much effort…
Weeks flew by…
and did I sew…Not at all…
I did my last weeks at pain rehab…
And suddenly…
One week when I was home alone…just me and Molly..
guys were on a little trip on their own…
I just went up in my sewing room and started to 
cut out some squares for the Great Granny blocks…

Did I have fun…

Or…did I have FUN….:0)

The whole Saturday I just cut and cut…

Molly really thought I was crazy…
she sat behind me… or under the sewing table…
or layed on the floor in front of me…
tried to be under the ironing board…
whined a little…
see me …see me…

So eventually I had to take a break and go for a walk…
With Molly…

So much better…Molly thought…
Yippieeee!!! :0)

But when returning home…she found out that I was 
Just as crazy as before and kept on doing 
those strange things upstairs…
And me…
Still had lots of fun!!

Totally absorbed with orange…
Pinks and greys…

And these fun text fabrics…

Totally exhausted …
I went to bed…but with a happy smile on my face…

Next morning…
Well…all I can say is that this body …
Payed its price…
but who cares…
I had fun!!!
So all I did Sunday morning
was to try and sew one block together…

And …now Molly really thought I was crazy…
She had to be with me all the time…almost in my lap
All the time…poking her nose into the machine…
Strange thing that sewing machine…:0)

well… Poor doggy…
You will have to get used to find me
Behind that machine from time to time…
and not be with you all the time…

That was what happened weeks ago…
Still haven’t touched the sewing machine since then…
…but…
At least I have sewn!!!

No reply

Totally annoyed today!!!
Even a little angry…
Don’t like not having things to work…
Like they should…

Today it’s no replies!!!!

When are Blogger/Google+ going to do something
about this!!
HUH????

When going over to new blogger and google+ 
All this started…
(After a while)
My email was no longer visible and became 
set as a no reply account

Thanks to Christine at Aunties quaint quilts 
I was alerted to this…

So I googled around because this is a little bit tricky
to find out …
“what to do about this then”
Nothing on Bloggers help page…
and nothing on Google+ either
BUT
Found a great tutorial here:
Did the said things…
And all worked as a charm again…

Until now again…

So thanks again Christine for alerting me again!!!

So I did the whole thing again…reverted to old blogger, 
checked that little box again…show email…
and back to google+ again…

Now it works again…
But don’t know for how long…
So has anyone any other solution or know something
that will enlighten me in all this…
So PLEASE share the news!!!!

So friends…lets help each others to know 
when things aren’t working with our blogs…

If I find out someone is no reply I use to write and say it
if I can’t come into contact with someone..
I will use my comments and reply directly 
to the person who commented

Otherwise…
Hello world…remember to 


Amen!!!
