Spring?? - Summer ??-- Winter ??....

I spend some days in Oslo after Easter- beautifull sunny days- almost summer. Look at these trees. I don't know the name- but they was soo great after a long and cold winter. I love the pink tree...
And this.. a great withe tree. I had to try to get a close look at the beautifull flowers... April here in south part of Norway has been the warmest in a long time... But easy come ...
easy goes... This is how was in my garden this morning :-( I won't have more snow now I want summer ... But it went to a great sewing day. I have spend most of the day in my sewing room.. And yes I have a lot on my mind and on my Want To Do list...
I have manage to do one little finish.. the second of the Pincushions from the Make and Bake club by Busyfingers... Sweet and useful. It is English Paper Pieced... I didn't belive I would enjoy making PP this mutch...
I realy have a lot going on with Paper.... Flowers for the Hexagon quilt from Vignette - Snippespekulasjoner from Lappemakeriet -a little Octagon quilt ( just because..) -It Takes Two by Sue Daley...Guess if I love the Glue pen from Sewline :-) I went to the lecture by Sue Daley at Katrines Quiltestue. And learn a lot about how to work with PP , a lot of tip and new ways to do PP :-)
I have been knitting a little lately - bad influence by Nemo :-) she has been knitting cloths for dishes. I as so luckey to get one - but I had to start making more. It is so fun to play with all the great colours..
Talking about playing... At last I have started to play with all my Debbie Mumm fabrics, I got a lot, thanks to Anne- Kjerstin, Hanne, Bjørg, May Britt , Irene and Tonje..and I love every inch of them.. (The fabrics that is...)Isn't this a lovely pile a lot of sweet memories and some who are new to me... Thank you Girls :-) you are so kind and sweet :-)
I have started to make "Svennebrev" (craft certificate) a great block quilt by Lappemakeriet.(This quilt on the photo are made by Hanne:-) ) I have made these 9 blocks so fare, but hope to make the whole quilt fast... It is so fun to use Magda ( my sewing machine) again.. Great girl she are :-))
To tell a secret.. I got one more finish this month.. but I can't show it yet. It is a block swap. Once a year 8 ladies swap blocks and make what we want from them, then we all meet one evening and have a show and tell... To morrow is this years great happening... I hardly can wait and see what the other ladies has made.... mine are.... Oh Now - you have to wait untill next time , then I will show you..
I have a lot going on for the rest of this week - a lot of happenings including Quilt ladies. Tell you more next time ... soon I hope. Untill then take care and happy stitching :-)

I love paper piecing also. I am making Sue's red and white quilt you would have seen it in her trunk show. I think of you often as I use your lovely bag to hold all my bits and pieces.
