54 out of 81, so I`m moving forward ...

In my mind all the time ... 
... the butterflies, I mean. 
Really waiting for them to fly into our garden.
Meanwhile here is -Butterflies Mini Quilt- 14"x18 1/2" by Laundry Basket quilts.
All butterflies in 100% cotton Batik. Just finished this little quilt at the
nick of time for OPAM. Still waiting for a week of sunshine for the flowers
on the bush. The quilt is already on the wall inside actually :-)

Then the BIG thing: 54/81  :-)
 Have showed you blocks of  my BUTTERFLY GARDEN
by Leanne B. before, I know. Some development right now as three + three
blocks are linked. Way back, before I started blogging and after Leanne B. 
had been visiting us here in Norway, I bought the pattern
from a shop here, fabrics from my stash are still in the same two boxes.
Gave me such a pleasent feeling inside of me :-)  
I will start working on the rest of the blocks, think I must plan on every
day of one week. Will be a big quilt; Suitable for our bed, I am sure!)
When I first started sewing I only did stem stitching . 
 Thanks to Chookyblue`s SALs I now always do the back
 stitching :-)  Only 3 blocks left  (read 27 mini block to make), 
ready for preparing blocks 4, 5 and 6  in late August. 

Well yes, one finish for July: happy, happy!! AND
happy, happy: closer hope for a visit Festival of Quilts in UK next week.
Happy sewing to you and thanks for reading this time too :-)

Nydelig sommerfugl-teppe!!
Blir nok fint det andre teppet også. Ei blokk nå og ei blokk da; til slutt er du i mål.
Riktig god helg!

Det teppet var kjempefint!! Det må vel kunne lokke frem både sol og levende sommerfugler;)
