thank you everyone




I just want to say thank you to every one of you. You have been so kind to me. This rose from my garden are to all of you. It has been quite scary every time I got a mail.

To day I'm thinking to tell a little bit more about my self and show you some of my work. This is an old work. It are one of my oldes quilt...I don't know if I can call it a quilt. When I make it I didn't know anything about quilting. It is made with english-paperpiecing, but I took the fabrics I got. Some are from old curtains and other are from old christmas table toppers. I had a dream of making a big quilt, but by any reason it was just forgotten. Untill suddenly I found it and knew it was a tree. I just had to put on a trunk. I didn't knew about batting and quilting so it is just the top. I have had it in my bedroom eversince.

This is one other quilt who I just love. It is a miniature. I just can't stop making them.I enjoy sitting and play with smal pieces and leftovers. Realy I think I don't have to buy big fabrics....I love smal pices and some times I got leftovers from other quilters. What a happy day.....making something from fabrics I didn't buy. Diffrent from what I choose. Exciting...To day I have been playing with this small pieces.....They are leftover from another smal quilt I have made.....I will show you later.


Now I just have to say good night.... Sleep well.
