Something old - Something new...

I have been traveling around these last weeks too..... ;-) My last trip was to visit Emma when she was sick. Not great to be little and sick for the first time. I hope she will be well again soon. She and her mum will come and stay with us for Easter - and we will celebrate her first birthday here. Can you belive she are almost 1 year...
The last time they were her it was OL - and I belive Cyan got hooked. Here she are on the table watching Petter Northug.
But now I'm looking forward to Easter and after that SPRING. I hope the snow will melt away and there will be warm sunny days soon. But I'm not the only one. I saw this Gull in Oslo. It seems a bit cold on the feet.
I have manage to do some finish this month too. The first are this" relax" little wall quilt.I got some "Cottage Garden Threads" and had to try it. It is great to stitch with ;-) The pattern are from Natalie Bird's book All Creatures Great & Small. Some of the photos in this blog are realy relaxed..... I have start to use Picasa - but it don't play to well with me all the time... More to learn....
More relax finish--- The last from the Stitchery of the Month Club. Strawberry & Creem by Lynette Anderson.A needle case and a sewing bag. So now I have done all of the kits. This has been a great BOM from Under the Mulberry Tree.
The reason I call this blog "somthing old - something new" are partly this.... I have restarted on this old--- Eh realy old Bom. I got my last block 5 years ago...I only have to finish one block now and the borders. The quilt are called "Wildberry Vines" by Nancy Odom.
And the New start are this----- The first block of Down in the Garden by Leanne... I have been looking forwart to start on this quilt ever since I saw Leanne stitch on it when she and Gail where in Trondheim.Great quilt who bring back great memories.
It is so fun to look at the diffrent colours and fabrics in the two quilts. Both looks great in their own way.

At last I have one more little finish.... A little table runner made with small samplers and old fabrics after a idea fromTrine Bakkes new book "Andre Lappesaker"A new book with "old" ideas. I have to make more from this book..

To morrow I have to start to pack and get ready for this years Annual Quiltmeeting.
I wonder what I "realy need" this year.....
I will show and tell you next time..
Have a great weekend- I know I will :-)

Poor Emma! I hope she is better by now. At least she is not lacking in the cute department.

I will laugh all day about that cat watching the olympics. What was his favorite event?
