If you came around ..........

this is what we could do: drink a cup of coffee,eat a piece of my newly baked warm apple-cake with melting ice-cream, and you could help me choosing the fabrics for my TTS :D)
My neighbour`s apple tree gave lots of fruit this year.
Lovely looking,just waiting for me to pick them.

I love anything apples:jam;sauce;pie;tart;cake,crumble;"an apple a day keeps the doctor away";etc. ......

Some preparation in the kitchen,then ready for the oven.


This is it! 5 visitors or any number will be fine;more cups in the cupboard and more cakes in the freezer..... LOL ......

Over to what we like the most:quilting! Yes,lovely stitchery of the Tis The Season done. Soon on to the next step choosing the fabrics. This time I did not join the SAL group,(should have done really)having a peek now and then, yes,glad having a plan I could follow.
Have you checked the SAL group which Chookyblue has arranged. Amazingly many lovely quilts already up on the participants walls :-) The patterns are so sweet;small stitchery,only a square of 4 1/2" cut. I finished the stitchery yesterday.

Some of the fabrics were bought a long time ago. Not quite sure yet which ones to use. But my hope is that I by Boxing Day will have the quilt finished; this year or the latest by next Christmas ......LOL......

Happy Quilting days ahead for you all :-)

Jeg kommer med en gang, eplekake høres kjempe godt ut ;-))
Ditt nye prosjekt ser kjempe fint ut, nyderlige stoffer...
Jeg har sydd ferdig min siste Tiny Town Blokk i dag og sitter og funderer på hvordan jeg skal ramme det inn. Skal jeg bruke rester eller ikke ??? Hmmmmmm....

Your apple cake looks yummy! And how nice to see your little apple orchard in your blog header! I can see my block like that all the time as my GJ quilt is hanging right by the computer. Although I see the back of the quilt stand, so the apple trees are upside down! LOL

Oh my gosh, I wish I could come over to join you. May I have tea, though? If I ever win the lottery, I'm going to visit all my bloggy friends all over the world, and you're at the top of the list! Love your stitchery in your header.

I'm with you regarding the apples - they go well with everything! Tis the Season looks like a really achievable project - I'm sure you'll be able to complete it by THIS Christmas!

Oh Grethe, I would love to come over. Could I please have a cup of tea then (o: The cake you baked looks yummy! And how do you make apple jam?
It looks like all fabrics could be used for the blocks! I still have to work on mine.
Have a happy weekend!

I'll have a coffee - white, no sugar. I can almost taste that wonderful cake. It looks like you are a great cook.
You have picked out some pretty fabrics to choose from for your TTS.
I hope to do the new one on the SAL. I may not get a spot but Chookyblue said I could post through my friend who stayed in it.

Mmmm coffee and warm apple cake sure do sound like a fine way to spend an afternoon...especially with fabric choosing thrown into the mix...if only I lived closer I'd be around in a shot to play!...your TTS stitcheries are lovely...nice fabrics being auditioned...looking forward to seeing which ones you choose...
