SO HAPPY 1+2+3 .....

HAPPY 1: 
 Sweet little bunny  :-)
We were celebrating my son`s girlfriend Mona`s 30th birthday; 
Coffey with lots of cakes etc. etc. on the table, then my son Erik
 did put on  another cake; saying: this is a special cake
with a date written on the cake 01.10.15.
I / We all thought for a blinck of a second marriage ,
when he continiued : 
This is the approx date when we will be parents: 01.10.15 :-) 
Wishing the two the best of luck in the next months. 
My 3rd grandchild on its way!

HAPPY 2:
  Anita of Shabby Quilts searched for some fabrics on her blog
about a month ago. I knew I had some left. Far down in a box was
 a table runner-to-be, must have been there for at least 5 years. 
On the go here with "Margeritter (Daises)", a pattern from 2009
by AnnAKa design. My second to be sewn as I sold the first one.
Soon some Lecien roses on the way to Australia :))

HAPPY 3 (did almost not happen). 
Late in  Febryary I " joined" the BOM in Homespun,
paying for a year`s suscripion with them:
"Kaffe Fassett China Shop 2015".

Gave almost up as I did not receive any magazines; I have really 
hated Homespun due to their lack of involment. To cut it all short 
  I owe thousends of thanks to  Penny at  The Patchwork Angel. 
Penny has really been an ANGEL
 involved  herself into this. So Homespun has now sent the missing
magazines.  I have know Penny and her very kind helpers for 
many years. Her quiltshop was one of the first ones I visited on the net.

Here my two February blocks, love them :-)

Have picked out from the kit which fabrics to use
for the next blocks; ready to start soon.

Thanks for reading my blog this time too, wishing you a
HAPPY sewing time! from Grethe xx

Enjoy your BOM and congratulations on the impending birth of another grandchild. My middle daughter is due next month and I am rushing around trying to get everything finished (sewing, knitting, cross stitching.)

Så koselig Grethe at du skal bli farmor!
Februarblokkene dine er nydelige! Gleder meg til å se fortsettelsen.
Ja, i blogverdenen er det mange hjelpsomme personer. Godt at du hadde det hun manglet.
Ha en fortsatt fin søndag!

Hi Grethe - the Kaffe quilt will be a stunner - such terrible service from the Homespun magazine will be forgotten when you have your masterpiece!

I was at Penny's shop yesterday and had a lovely conversation. Just imagine a trip to Australia and we could take you to all the shops in real life.
