Writer's block - and a big finish




I think I am lucky who have not experienced a writer's block before,
but when it struck, it struck long and hard. It has been unpleasant, for months, with a lot of thinking I want to write, I want to write, but I just can not find my writing mojo.......

Starting to write again feels like breaking in a new pair of shoes, and I am looking forward to the writing process getting in flow mood again.




I have been busy with the needle through 2016, and focusing mainly on Ufos, and have many finishes to show for it. Luckily I have never experienced a quilter's block - I hope I do not jinx myself by saying that...... I think not!

My plan is to blog sort of backwards, starting with my latest finish, the Some Kind of Wonderful quilt - My Favorite Things, a stitch-along from several years ago (2011- ), hosted by Chookyblue on Stitch-A-Long




I am so in love with all Anni Downs' designs, and this one is no exception.
This is my first big quilt all needleturn appliqued. I think I really love this quilt even more now than when I started it. Meeting Anni in Norway was special too!

Merete Ellingsen has done the machine quilting.



Wherever you go,
go with all your heart!

such a beautiful quilt you have completed here, as you say Anni is an amazing designer. Good to see you back on your blog, have been keeping up with you on instagram, struggle to comment on that though as have o do that from tablet, lap top does not offer comments just the like button. it is so easy not to post I have been neglectful both on blog and instagram but still following what everyone else is doing
