`My Garden` is up on the wall.... and check the `Tiny Town` . .......

The lovely little wall quilt is back from the quilter
Merete at Sy.no It so nicely quilted!

Of the nine small blocks this blueberry one is my favorite:

At last such a good feeling to watch the BOM hanging up there on the
wall. Could have been more cheerful if I had used different colour,but
I just love the Moda`s Evening Mist range same as Lynette has used.
This has been a BOM from Siw in Trondheim.

Some days ago I joined Anne Marie Tiny Town Challenge.
Seems we are a few on that same project as well. Maybe this
is an idea for you too?? :-) We are 4 friends who get the envelope
in the mail from Antique Angels in UK. The pattern is from 2010
Bunny Hill Designs.
Here you see some finished blocks. I have reduced the seize 25%.
I do some hand stitching,but do all I manage with the machine.
The empty spaces on the wooden floor is missing blocks,but will
fill in the gaps by 2012 ... hopefully ... well,for sure ... LOL

Happy weekend here?? The sky is supposed to bring lots and lots
of rain,which means lovely time to do some stitches on block 9.
And I will put on my boots and raingear,go for a walk,get some fresh
air. Will keep me going for a long time,all my UFOs,I mean .....

Special message for May Britt and Gudveig
I THINK IT WORKS ... really hope you come out BLUE ... THANKSaMILLION ..

I hope you all will have a nice and creative weekend!
Till next time ... take care...... :-)

Gratulerer med å få ferdig My Garden. Jeg holder fokus fremdeles :) Og så fin Tiny Town blir. Er jammen ikke helt sikker på hvor jeg har sett dette mønsteret. Er det en BOM??

My garden ble nydelig! Så flott! Og Tiny Town ser artig ut. Ha en fin helg - jeg håper det ikke blir for mye regn.

Oddbjørg said...

Teppet ble nyyydelig! Neste prosjekt ser også bra ut. (Kanskje jeg får se blokkene i virkelgheten om ikke alt for lenge?) Det er så mye en får lyst til å sy, men sommermånedene er dårlige symåneder for meg. Får konsentrere meg om UFOer inntil videre.
Ha ei fin helg!

Gratulerer med ferdig "My Garden". Jeg har sydd alle stitcheriene, men har ikke begynt med log-cabin blokkene enda. Det blir nok etterhvert. Og den lille byen blir kjemepefin, friske og fine farger. Ha ei fortsatt fin syhelg.

så flott My Garden teppet ditt ble. Mitt er straks klart for quilting også :-)
Gleder meg til det er ferdig ..
Tiny Town blir også kjempe fint.
Dyktig du :-))

Your garden is beautiful. I actually love the colors as they are so soothing. And your Tiny TOwn is going to be adorable! I've started a couple of BOM's, but i find I don't keep up with them.

Yvette said...

Congratulations on your "My Garden" finish!!! I have yet to even start mine. Oh, your Tiny Town is just too adorable. I like the idea of making it smaller.

Heather said...

Congratulations on your beautiful projects Grethe! I love having the chance to see the way that you combine embroidery with your quilting. Thanks for sharing your meticulous work.

Hi Grethe, Redoute rose china, Gardener's Journal, Tiny Town and My Garden- we have so much in common! I have just drawn out My Garden to take with me up the Nile -as stitcheries only (no applique or buttons) for next week's entertainment. :-) I plan to make mine very colourful a little how I made Lynette's Pond House. I will add you to my sidebar so I can pop back.

Gudveig said...

Teppene er kjempefine - nydelige!
- og linkene virker, flink jente :-)

Berit said...

Er du virkelig helt ferdig med Tiny Town?
Da blir jeg kjempe imponert.

These two projects are lovely. I particularly like your Tiny Towns. I am looking forward to seeing that finished. Are you having a good summer?
