Nice to be writing to you .............:

The Autumn is all around in my part of the world,beautiful colours,fresh air and not yet slippery outside. I have always like this time of the year,surprising a lot of my friends. But to me from way back,I new the lovely white snow and skiing was just around the corner. Still as a really grown up,I have this in mind,though not much downhill skiing anymore!

A Garderner`s Journal Quilt is speedily closer to the finish-line. This is block B of Chookyblue`s "Plan of Attack". You probably remember I have told you before we are
lots of quilters around the world joined in this Stitch Along Group. I have the two last blocks to finish,before it goes to the long-arm-quilter in January. Please check www.stitch-a-long.blogspot.com if you would like to visit and check our group.

Oh,so glad I have come this far:-) "MY GARDEN" is a mystery-quilt from Lynette Anderson,my pattern is sent to me from Quiltegaarden. I am proceeding slowly forward. It most certainly takes time,two blocks behind schedule!! But the small stitchery is so great doing,and may be in no time the two next is done.Of course block 6 is probably just around the corner.

This is the BOM-free pattern from BUNNYHILL more than 1 year ago,so long time finished.I ordered the hole set recently from Fatquarter Shop. I have promised myself to start every 1st of the month. Well, promises-promises,meant to be broken? But I will try! I am using 2 charm packs from Moda,and I have reduced the seize 25%, I love baskets (as well as the song "A Tisket A Tasket")! As I am still working how to do turning-under better,this will be an applique quilt.

Are you prepared?? Quickly December is here.This year I am longing for Father Christmas to be planning lovely gifts for me :-) And I have some secrets on my sewing table upstairs.
Please have a lovely week to come all of you!

Hei! Ja, høsten liker jeg også. Spent på hvordan jeg kommer til å like vintrene når jeg nå flytter østover :) Blir bare en time unna Oslo, så kanskje vi kan ta en kopp kaffe en dag?
Jeg har ikke begynt på My Garden enda. Nå blir det spart til jeg har et nytt arbeidsrom, tenker jeg.
Ha en flott dag!

I adore all of your projects. Maybe it is because I am doing the same ones. :)

Your GJ block and mystery blocks are perfect.

Well done on getting another SJ block done...I've lost the plot and am achieving nothing...January is going to come all too quickly and I still haven't finished September's stitcheries...
