A finish and progress

easter

Happy Easter to you!

Easter eggs, filled with sweets and wooden - both my favourites in their own way :-)

The lovely table cloth was embroidered by my grandmother on my mother's side, who died a long time before I was born.
It is embroidered on a piece of cotton fabric which is also darned in several places. Maybe it is a piece of a feedsack ?
Even if the small table cloth is both darned and rust stained it is a real treasure!

Here is my latest finish - a care quilt.

10 of the 24 blocks are blocks I got as a gift many years ago, and now I have added the last 14, to make this in to a nice care quilt.
It is a piece of polar fleece with teddy bears on the back, so it will be nice and cuddly for a child :-)

Miss Cat got the honour of paw approving this quilt before it is washed.
I always wash my care quilts before giving them away.

Now I have only 7 more star block to go !

I have started packing for my trip next week, and the 7 stars are going with me.

you really love.”

Hey Hanne! Your warming quilt looks gorgeous! And it sounds like you and May Britt are having a fabulos Easter weekend of stitching together - I'm a little jealous that I don't have a stitching friend to meet up with like you two do, still some stitching happening here for Easter too, so shouldn't complain! :0) Enjoy your relaxing time together creating. Bear Hugs! KRIS

I think the tablecloth looks beautiful and you are right to treasure this careful handwork from the past.
Some of the care quilts I see people make are not nice to look at - just unwanted fabrics that they have thrown together - but yours are always made with care and respect for the recipient, always quilts that people would love to have. I think they must give a lot of pleasure - you are a kind person.
Hope you have a happy family Easter time - I wish you Frohe Ostern from Germany!

Soon you are on a trip again. And I know you will have a smashing time meeting all those DJ friends.

God påske, Hanne! Så lurt å lage dette om til ein care quilt!
Eg har stoffa til dei 5 siste åttebladrosene liggande her ved sida, pent vaska, stroke og ihoplagt i dei rette bunkane, ein nytelse å sjå på. Tenk kor heldig eg var som fann dei att...LOL, no er det system, system!
