A finish and progress


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.

star blocks

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.

Let yourself be silently drawn
by the stronger pull of what
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!
