Always missing you

I never knew,
That without you,
My heart would ache so badly

Know that I will keep you close to me,
No matter where I go or where I'll be.

It's a year now since you left us,
but you're present in my days,
my dear
dear sister.

"I carry your heart (I carry it in my heart)" - E.E. Cummings

There are some people in life
That make you laugh a little louder
Smile a little bigger
And just live a little better

Wishing each of you a lovely Valentine’s Day!

Out of sight, out of mind….Or, the advantage of being a chaotic quilter…


The excitement about trying a new technique (the one I mentioned on my last post)

made me take a look at my scrap boxes.

Oh my….

What do you think I found?….



What a bird brain…

How could I forget my string blocks???… I first showed them  here

After deciding which pattern I liked most

I made more blocks,

I took a break….

made more blocks, and…

time passed…

Other projects took place,

the box with the blocks found a nice corner in the sewing room.

Why did they not scream??…I sure would have heard!


Enough waiting,

I started sewing the blocks.



It’s going to be a square quilt,

I have three more blocks to sew.


Sometimes a new idea helps you to finish an old project!

Wishing you a lovely sewing time!

New ideas


Again and again,

scrap quilts always

get my attention,

the colors, the fabrics,

beautiful, joyful,lovely.


I saw this one in Australian Homespun No.128,

A nice way of using remnants to “make” your own pieces of fabric and

then cut them into parallelograms:



Interesting, isn’t it?

Wishing you a lovely weekend!

For the little ones



It was time to make some preemie quilts again,

something I really enjoy.

Some little bears,


birds “talking”,


and a sweet panel,


quilted with hearts motifs.


Wishing you a lovely and creative week!

Change of season…


The beauty of Fall is gone…

The days are getting colder, the sky is grey…


with some bright decoration, candles, tea, and

everything else that makes you smile

and feel happy,

we can welcome the most lovely time of the year,

can’t we?

I’m thankful for being able to finish a small wall hanging just in time for the first Advent.

As usual, life gets in the way and my plans fail, I guess  it’s a matter of getting used to it as I grow older…


Time for some more tea….(after the photos!)


Hanging the stocks with care….

Enjoy this season and

all the joy

it brings!
