Hello from King Winter.

Here are my favourite collours. May Britt asked to show our favourite time of the year...and mine are Fall.I love the blue sky and all the beautifull warm collours....and the sun.
It looks almost like this....I only wish there were a little more red and orange ......
But not as it was to day...King Winter came suddenly ,long before he was expecting to be here. It was to soon, the last time it was snow it was 14. of june. I can't remember the summer beeing so short.....I hope it will be some beautifull days when the snow dissapere....Now ,by evening the snow are gone in my garden....
It looks beautifull.....but it tells me to remember Christmas. I have to start thinking about presents and all I have to do. And I have to make a gift for my "Secret Santa Christmas Swap" partner....I know what to make , but has not started yet. :-)
But I have made this , it is from Jordbærstedet. It is the Stitcheri - club. We got a pre-printed stitcheri with a saying in Norwegian. The saying are" kaffe og kake, kom får du smake" In English: Coffe and cake come and have a taste. We also got 4 -30 cm of fabrics to use. Fun , but difficult.....I had to think what I want to make. :-)

I have also made this and send it to Fiona. My secret sthitcheri partner.I'm waiting for my stitcheri from a unknown lady.... I know it has been posted ,but I have not got it yet.... Guess who are keeping an eye on the mailbox???
This are what I think the inside of my head looks like....lots of ideas and things to make. It is the usual look of my dinnertable after a week of work. I have all the things I work on in the reach ,so I can grab what ever I want to work on just when ever I want.....I always have a lot of things in progress at the same time......Jumping from one idea to another. Looking at the photo it seems a great mess.....But to day I have made my self more to do. I have been working with some small stitcheries. More to make..... :-)
To morrow I'm expecting a friend to come to visit. We are going to do a lot of stitching, I think....
I just love the days when I can relax and have fun with fellow quilters and friends.
Have fun and get some good friend to come and enjoy a great day with you.

That snow photo is soooo beautiful! But it makes me feel (brrr) very cold! I am the same, so many ideas, not enough time and so a bit of a mess all over LOL

Your Fall wallhanging is so lovely. Fall is my favorite time of the year too. I also like the picture of your projects on your table. I am glad to know I'm not the only one with many new project ideas swimming around in my head....and laid out on the table.

Ohhh -- that snow, um, I'll stop complaining about fall now. Brrrr. Lovely stitcheries and projects you've been working on -- and your table isn't THAT messy!

Andrea said...

Your table looks just like mine - lol ! Different projects - same clutter. I love Autumn too - frosty mornings and dark nights - lovely ! Hope your stitchery comes soon !

Your snow is early, I have not seen any yet. There is no lack of ideas that is for sure, but we all could use more time I think.

ciao ciao

Only 3 months with no snow, that really is a short summer!
We would love to see some here occasionally, happens about once every 10 years! Great quilts and stitcheries, Tracey
