Christmas in July....

I read a lot about Christmas in July and it has realy been that for me. :-) When my father came he brought a new christmas dinner set ,who my morher has painted. She realy know how to make great China paiting.And from the Christmas club I got the kit of this great guy. Rudy are made after a pattern from Melly and me. Guess who is lokking forward for Christmas. And to day I learn that Chookyblue are hosting a new Secret Santa Christmas Swap. It is going to be so fun.
I have manage to finish a lot during the summer. I have send this to my PIF partner Margy . I hope she liked it. The saying are : Badedag ( Bath day)
I have also post my Four Seasons Quilt to a lady somewhere in the whorld..... Realy hope she likes it. And I'm keeping an eye on the postman waiting for mine quilt..... It has been so great beeing a part of this Swap.So thank you Margaret for hosting it.
I have also done the binding of this quilt from a class earlier this year. So now my wisp's are shrinking a little, but..... There are a BIG but.....
Here you see some of the new pattern I got with my father....It is all somthing I WANT to do...
Ups he didn't bring Chicken Feather. I manage to get it on Lille Stasjon when I started to work after my vacation.I love the books of Bronwyn Hayes... ;-) Back to the pattern, as you can see I have started on one. Hekseliv (Witch life) made of AnnAKa. The other are pattern from Lappestua, Crab-apple Hill and Bareroots. A lot to do for me :-)
When Nemo return from France I got this wonderfull gifts from them. Her and her boyfriend. Two thimbles from Paris and some new fabrics designed by Pat Sloan. I love them , wonder what to make...
I won this Pin on a giweaway at Quilt Fabric Delights. Hope you can see how great it is. I have signed up at herPincushion of the month club.
My collection of thimbles are growing fast, thanks to great friends. I got these from Lisbeth ( the one from Røros) and Reidun. Thank you girls, I will remember you....
When I was "baby sitting" Nemos rats they realy looked over my progress on the stitching. It was Quiltmakers from The Freckles Collection who the liked best. I can't understand why... LOL

Your star quilt is beautiful and also the stitchery with the mice. I also wonder why the rats like it so much *VBG*
