While waiting for spring!

Snow falls in large amounts and hides all signs of spring.
Just a little dripping from the ceiling!

It's nice out there in the snow but it is also great to spend time in the studio.
 If spring is absent, it's nice to make something that remind me of spring.....
 and the first lovely flowers. 

Tussilago in Swedish and coltsfoot in English!
One of my favorites!

I sewed the blocks together and this is the result so far!

A small quilt in bright yellow, orange and blue to purple low valume fabrics.
It measures about 30x30 inches.

As usualI I have been working freely and built my quilt from a simple sketch.
My idea to continue this project is to keep working with different stitches
all over the surface to bring something more exciting to the design.

How it will look like is not clear, but I'm working on it!

Something like this? I said ...I'm working on it! be continued!

Happy Quilting!

Climb a mountain!

I want to show you how amazing beautiful it is in the Swedish mountains.
 Last week I went with my siblings on skis four days in the mountains.

One of our goals was to climb a mountain called Sylarna in Jämtland.

We had an unbelievable luck with the weather, sun from a clear blue sky and no wind.

 The conditions were fantastic.

So..just go for it!
We first went on skis as far as possible and then changed  to crampons
 to climb the last part.

 It was very exciting and fun!

The reward for all the hard work was breathtaking! 

Outdoor experiences is unbeatable and I have great memories
 from our tour together.

Thank you all siblings and Lajjen for a nice mountain hike!

And now....filled with energi....

..time in the studio to make some quilts!
