Hello all my dear friends! I have missed you – one week without writing to you!
Easter week was extra busy! We had a big dinner party – more than 50 people – friends and relatives. Now we are almost back to normal every day rutin.
When I came back home today, Hanna had missed me. She was more than happy to be a model when we took out some patchwork blocks. When I started to think a quilt, where even my dogs would be allowed to lie, I picked this old brown fabric and simple white to clear it.
I don’t like much that brown but it’s perfect for making different blocks and testing and learning new ones. And with white – I may even like it a little bit.
I haven’t made any patchwork or even one block for a while and I miss that. These I have made perhaps last month … it was nice just to see them and remember that ‘there they are’! I like the shape of triangle and square.
This beautiful purple-green bush is called here ‘Thrumbi’. It smells like oregano and grows wild. We have it in many places in the garden and this time it’s full of tiny flowers and it has wonderful smell. I wish again I could send you that smell!
