TTT

TTT - Things Takes Time
I guess you know all about it too - how the best laid plans runs out in sand and how life interferes with quilting and all that ?

Since the upcoming week will be busy with funeral and all, I am aiming at finishing 1 NI block a day, average, and will pat myself on the back if I make it :-)

Stash reducing wise these small blocks are a laugh, but they keep me busy indeed, and I have not been shopping at all, so even these 5 NI blocks have reduced stash - believe it or not :-)

I have baked bread today and I think I will keep at doing it regularly - I love the smell and the taste of home baked bread.

DD2 and I have also given the smoothie maker we got for Christmas another test run, with berries from the freezer. It was fun, and I am sure berry smoothies are healthy this time of year, bursting with vitamin C.

What a gorgeous block...and I am not a big fan of red...but that really takes my eye.

Dette blir så bra! Nå har jeg bladd meg bakover i bloggen din og gledet meg over alt det hvite og røde!! Har tillatt meg å "tagge" deg - som du vil se når du besøker bloggen min neste gang.

I follow your progress at least once a week and I'm impressed! The sundayblock turned out great.

Your red and white blocks are so beautifull. I want to make some too, later. My WISP list is long enough as it is.

What a beautiful block. Love the contrast between the light and dark reds.

Hanne, I'm so sorry to read about your father-in-law's death. I was very close to my FIL and had a very difficult time with his death a couple years ago. You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers.

I love how it 'pops' with those colours. Lovely.

You and your family are in my thoughts, I hope that you are all OK after the funeral.
I love the colour red and so am very taken with your NI blocks, is there a pattern? i am looking forward to seeing your blocks all stitched together.
