The last roses and lovely strawberries

Still we have these lovely summerdays summer and the strawberries are ready to eat.We had a lovely dinner and after that we were sitting in the garden enjoying strawberries,banans and cream.What a wonderful time we have.And the last roses....well when the roses get their last blooms we know that the summer has an end.In August we have darker nights and the mornings are clear and colder.

I wish you all a lovey lime

The first blueberry muffins and a preview of the mini quilt for July

A wonderful time and we get a lot of berries.First we could enjoy strawberries and then i found the first blueberries in the forest near our house.I couldn't resist doing muffins and what a happiness to have the possibility to do them so my eldest son could eat some before he went away to Japan after a 4 weeks long holidays.My children loved these when they were small so......the childhood gives many memories.

I also made the mini quilt for July ready to send away to my swap partner.Enjoy and guess..............

The end of June-mini quilt and a mail art

The month of June gave me a little time to do some swap things.I really love to do and get things too.I made a mail art and it was inspired of freebees on internet.I didn't send it without an envelope.To my friend I made inside 2 pouches for small items as a little embroidery or yarn.

To swap mini quilts give me inspiration and opportunities to learn new patterns.
This is a mini quilt trading swap- size 6"-12"
I also hope I can do some for friends and penpals in the future.Maybee I can do them one as a Christmas present.
