Progress in my sewing room

I am so happy to stay healthy enough to enjoy nice summer whether, calm moments on the pouch with a quilting project in my hands and exciting new projects on my scribbling pad.

I have finished appliquĂ© work on the four center blocks for a Japanese travel quilt for DS and DIL. I have completed all the pieced blocks earlier. DS have his birthday 1. August, and I have kind of told that this is a birthday gift for the both of them. I don’t know if I can make the date yet. The quilt has to be sent off for long arm quilting. Anyway, I’ll do my best.

4 mitter blocks

The Japanese signs on the blocks have a special meaning. The top block is a greeting from a Tea ceremony and the other sign stands for Hope, Happiness and Harmony.

DH is a Football (Soccer) fan, and for those of you that are not, there is a World championship going on in South Africa. In our house that means that there is only Football on the big screen. Lucky I have a small TV in my sewing room!

My the best team win!

Time flies……

I am still here, alive and kicking J

May have been a strange month. I was totally drained after a week with moving my dad to a flat at a center for old people. No sewing, no creative work. Can you believe it? It feels like May never happened.

Well May happened with some beautiful warm and sunny days. The flowering in the garden is beautiful. Look at all the pink flowers.


I got a pink color too. I sat too long in the sun in my new bikini.


Take care, and remember sun tan lotion.
