Hello Dear Friends! This is a great Monday – lovely date 12.12. and also very exiting because there is lots of happenings in the blogland …
I made yesterday mini quilt for myself. While doing all those mini quilts, I made also this base with some special patches. Yesterday I thought to clean away Christmas sewings to continue my Dream Quilt and so it was time to finish this.
I didn’t want this one to be only for the Christmas so I made winter in the forest! Those small spots on the trees are cones! Sometimes the snow looks blue because of the winter light, so the snowflakes and the small hill are blue.
… one more thing to my Forest series! I still like very much this ‘Finnish Forest’ quilt and ‘Finn Forest’ pillow! This blanket was the first one I quilted by hand and I made those stitches too tight. But I love the trees, the colours and the log cabin is always so good block!
I want to tell you that there are so many giveaways going on around the blogland this week! I have add two buttons up on my sidelist. Quilting Gallery celebrates their 4th Birthday with a whole week blog-hop giveaways! Visit Quilting Gallery’s site to find the list of all the 241 bloggers who are participating!
There is Accuquilt Christmas Theme blog-hop and giveaways! SewCalGal is one of the participating blogs and visiting her blog you can enter to her giveaway for a GO!Baby! and see the list of the participating blogs!
And one more! SewMamaSew is having a traditional giveaway day 12.12! There are many, many blogs participating! I think from this afternoon bloggers can start to add their links to SewMamaSew’s giveaway site.
So this week there will be so many lucky crafters winning fabrics and other sewing supplies! I don’t deny that I do wish I’m one of them and win some fabrics!
Look how our lawn/grass is growing … climbing over the walls! When we made the lawn we added only very small amount these seeds. It is good variety because it’s very strong and covers the ground well and also it spreads too well. But now it starts to be too much!
There are some flowers in the garden – these little, blue sweeties and rosies – but mostly the garden is now really green!
I think I have to go … I smell something reeeaaalllly gooood …
… applepie is ready! I wish I could send you some!!!
