Spring ??

I manage to finish the first block of Leannes Down in the Garden to nigth. So now I'm ready to get block two of this great BOM. I love to work with the fabrics from Lecien and the Cosmo floss.The colours are so vernal.
The first finish in April are done...an old little wallquilt from years ago...I challenge Vigdis to do another during Easter Hollydays....Wonder if she took the challenge...The stitchery are from Nothern Quilt and are called "Is te" ( Ice Tea) Some of my photos are still relaxing, I'm still wondering how to turn them.....
I'm sorry to have to show you this beautifull little quilt the wrong way. It is a Round Robin from Elverum Quiltelag. And it is mine. ;-) Thank you Anne, Mary, Inger,Berit,Anne N,Wenche,Laila,Toril,Mette and Elin. I love your work. If you want to see more of our RR you can go here.....
There has been a important celebration this Easter..... Emma are one year. Not a baby any more but a big girl... I have to show you her great cakes .... Her mum made and decorate them for her party.
First her Bløtkake (creem cake) decorate with her name , one candle and sweets on.Realy tasty :-)
and second her princess crown cake. A chocolate cake with lots of yummy sweets on it..A tasty cake for children of all age.
So all of you who love chocolate you misst something there... LOL

To day it has been sunshine here, I hope it will last a long time now. Easter has been great for sewing in my part of the world, but now I hope for spring. I have seen some birds of passage who has come back. But they looked cold....

There are an old saying going like this: One Swallow are no summer. - But I hope one Starling are... There was one in my garden yesterday....
I cross my fingers ;-)
