... "27 pinwheels came to my door ... " .....

Such a lovely PIF present!
I received the table runner from Melanie
Thank you so much. Please find Melanie`s blog. See the great
Star quilt that she has made with the same lovely fabrics.

It was on Saturday that I received this envelope in
the post box.Great,great,great!!Scissors ready,cut,cut,cut ...
Lovely packed in paper and silk band together
with a sweet card:-)
Polka dot paper was cut and the pinwheel mat appeared.
Just right for the dresser in the living room :-)
Here is a little close-up of some PWs.
Super fabrics,I really like them.
Within a year it will be my turn to -Pay It Forward-.I will
let you know when the time is there. Will be working hard
as I`m into three PIFs,just so you know .... LOL

Meanwhile my Birdies are slowly growing.
Cheers to June+July+August. All the 12 months be a lovely
quilt one day!

Till next time,all the best to you from

Kjempesøte stitcheries, blir nok en flott quilt. Og så er det så kjekt å få pakker i posten, ihvertfall når det er så flotte :o)
Ønsker deg en deilig sensommeruke!

So glad you liked the little mat. The fabrics are Moda's Boutique range. Thank you for being one of my PIFers. The card is an illustration from my fav book "Wind in the Willows" by Kenneth Grahame.

What cute stitcheries. It will be a brilliant quilt for next Spring when the birds are nesting outside and bulbs are flowering.

Grethe -Er det denne uken du skal lage 9 løpere? Morsomt, men jeg skjønner ikke at du orker:-)
Du er flink !

I love pinwheels, and that table topper is just beautiful! Love your birdie blocks too! :0)

The pinwheels are lovely and match the colours in your beautiful embroidery. I will look forward to one day seeing how your embroidered squares come together in a quilt.

Gorgeous pinwheel runner...you know I'm partial to a good pinwheel and the beautiful colours against the white, just lovely.
Your birdies are so cute, looking forward to seeing the whole project come together...
