Patchwork mojo

A couple of weeks ago my Scrappy Tree quilt
was published in a Danish magazine - Hendes Verden.

I also made a note cover.

Beside me, Line Galst,  Pernille Ruskjær and Karen Marie Dehn contributed with some of their patchwork projects too.

Thank you so much for inviting me to participate, Karen Marie.

Vacation that went by.

A glimpse from our vacation in France.
From a house we love so much in a lovely village, 
Les Baux, by the foot of Mont Ventoux.
This time the girls joined us and they understand,
why we love this place so much.

Frederikkes sleeping place - worthy of a princess.


Light in the living room.

Grapes - view from the kitchen.

Market purchase for me. Lovely craft.

Postcard writing.

Salad chevre chaud by my dear hubby

Early night.

I can't believe, that the vacation already is over.
I need more time.....

Blowing in the wind -
cheerful colors and prints.
The quilt top is done, so far so good.

I wish, you could see the fabrics IRL.

It's warm and sunny in Denmark, but I have spent 20 hours
by the sewing machine the past four days.

It has been worth it.
Now I have to choose batting and fabric for the back.

Long time no see.....

 A scrappy-happy-pincushion project.
...not much to say about that.
(......but it's like therapy to me).
 I have bought tree fabric scrap packs here.
It's so fun to mix the tiny bits n bobs.

- and I bought a new crochet book too!
I can't wait to get a better look inside the book tonight.

I have a small pincushion giveaway on my Instagram profile
@metterobl - so drop by if you wanna join it.

Embroidery Workshop

Sometimes you need to spoil yourself -
I did, when I decided to go to one of Karen Marie's embroidery workshops.

I got started on cross stitch as a teenager. Then I did no cross stitch
for several years until getting interested in the inspiring Zakka world.
The possibility of free hand stitching has tempted me a lot.
I just needed to learn something about the different stitches.
That's why I went to this workshop - 7 hours in imbroidery heaven
with a group of talented crafters.

I still have so much to learn, but now I'm learning.
I hope to mix it with my passion for patchwork.

You must visit Stine's blog - she is knit designer and made
the most wonderful feathers on one of her knit projects.

It started with a pile of tiny  fabric scraps -
and suddenly it was a fabric patchwork puzzle.

I'm unable to throw away fabric scraps -
I love scrappy-happy projects.

I want to go through my fabric stash and do a spring clean,
but I'm not sure, that it will be an easy project....
I started my fabric collection, when I started to work back in 78.
I often wish, that I wasn't a person,
 who get too attached to things like fabric and yarn.
Many of my fabrics are held onto for sentimal reasons.

I have already given yarn to a local second hand shop
- it was great!

I want to know, that my treasured fabrics go to good new homes.
Maybe I should make some fabric bundles for sale
