..all I want to do

It's been a while....and there hasn't been any time in my studio the last two weeks.
All of you who makes stunning quilts 
one after do you find the time?

I find the spring quite stressful......but WONDERFUL at the same time!

  Dirty windows, dust,washing winter clothes :( 
planting, birthdays, running, flowers, birds singing :)... and..... I closed my eyes....didn't see all unfinished work...!

I started up sewing my Kaffe Fasset quilt together......feels good!
It looks like a color makes me smiling!
Colors do that to people! plants makes me smile too!

My plants are growing and thrivingin in the heat and light in the conservatory.

All I want to do.....?
New plans?.......Yes, I would like to make a stitchery....but what?
 Any suggestions?

Love Margreth

A princess quilt

Every finished quilt makes me happy!

 I started this one last summer during the Royal wedding when Victoria married Daniel.
Yes... I looked and was inspired to stitch some crowns.
I choosed  a warm color palette and added blue crowns and stripes to cool the impression

I quilted it today in wild circles all over the surface with orange thread....
It isn't easy to choose how to quilt. It requires a lot of planning and....a lot of patience.
.... and hopefully..... no one will hear when things go bad. :(

My mother and father visited us on saturday bringing a lovely,
lovely bouquet of flowers.
It matches my quilt Red cottages so nice!

Happy again! :)

.... at full speed....... running..and sewing.....:)
