3 blocks from the mystery

The mystery blocks are done and this is a minimalistic version of it with red,whith and black.Now I have to choose what to do of it.Merete give examples as cushions ,a tablerunner or small squares for the table.My background fabric is white with some grey dots.Or do I choose black for the frame?Or do I something without a fram?

Here you find the blog of the designer and if you don't understand swedish she aslo has links in english for the different clues and you can find 3 examples of what she has done.

A new book page on the theme forest and animals

The book page is made for a swap friend and I really had a great joy making it.As you see I started with the background "twisting" 2 different green fabrics.Sewing the "twists" on the background.Then I made a triangle with fiber fill in as a tree and and application of a tree in gold printed fabrics.Some embroidery with threads and beads.A type of 3 D.
(My english is not so good but I hope you understand what I mean)

Sewing blocks for swap friends

This weekend it has been an adventure to do blocks for different swap friends and try to find out what green,brown,red,pink or whatever they wished.I'm very fond of blue but this weekend when I did blocks with green fabrics I really found out this is a colour I seldom use but it's a lovely calm one.I think I really love the blocks with green fabrics(made in Japan) in combination with the red roses on white(Tilda fabric) and the green once in 3 different green colours.And maybee you all know I love flowes and red roses symbolize love.

We have got a lot of snow and more or less it looks like a Christmas landscape.I hope there are not going to be car accidents today,

A trip to Luleå

A new day and I feel so happy for the trip to Luleå.We were visiting an exhibition on Norrbottens museum,Krona och krans,an exhibition about wedding traditions now and from the past.
On internet I found a blogger showing some of the things I also l...oved to see.In the past you had for example flowers made of paper,really a long time ago,but I think we now have some brides using paper flowers or flowers in other materials.And the crowns made in different materials.So so creative and so beautiful.What fascinated me very much were the lovely mittens for the celebration.Most of them very decorated and made in wool in silk yarn.

My sister and I we also were haveing a nice lunch,lovely "fika" with cakes and many lovely chats.We were walking a lot and we had rain,snow and sunshine.A long lovely day.
What a day!
