Vof vof! It’s me Nero and I have eaten the paper with the winner! No no, just kidding … but first I like to show you ‘Nero’s Garden’ quilt. It was made 2011 but because I have lots of lovely new friends and I have been asked about this quilt, I show it again.
Here I am presenting my quilt at the ‘Blogger’s Quilt Festival’. Wow how proud I was to join there first time with my own quilt! I made mosaics not to have too many photos here. After them you find links to my earlier posts, if you like to read how I met all these animals in my garden. For example I saved the bat from the swimming pool! Hey, that’s me under the tree!
Links are here, here, here and here. ::::: I had to come back and tell you that in those links, there are many funny and beautiful photos! I looked and read them again and I’m sure you enjoy seeing them – for example Hanna is laughing so much on the ‘Finnish Forest’ quilt on the lawn! And the bat and the hedgehog are quite sweet! :::::
And this is my very own, wall hanging quilt with all my little friends …
And now, not to keep you any more waiting … ta daaa … the winner for my give away is …. BENTA!!!!! Congratulations Benta! Please visit Benta’s wonderful blog ‘SLIK stitches’ and say hello! We have been long time friends with her and so often we get great ideas and good advices from her!
Here you see, I didn’t eat it, just tasted a little bit. But don’t go yet … even I told you just like that, who is the winner, this was a hard job to do …
I couldn’t work with the scarf so I took it off, but I believe you trust me if I say I didn’t look the names. i tried to get some help from Hanna, but she had her mind outside of the basket …
… one moment I thought it’s better I take all the basket or eat it, because I couldn’t decide what paper to pick … finally here it is … sorry friends, that I could pick only one paper!
Thank you so much for joining my give away! I was so happy to read your comments and how you spend your holidays! How great that many of you are going to have special trips and meet people that you haven’t seen for a long time! Also one really good way to spend holidays is just to relax at home! I shall do that, because someone else here is already really busy and she asked me to tell you that I can’t write so often to my blog as usually. Still I visit you and read your posts … perhaps not leaving so much comments, but here we are … some where here …
We wish you wonderful summer how ever and where ever you spend it!!!
Congrats to the winner! I love your quilt and will have to go back and look at those other posts. You really worked hard to pick out that name. I can’t believe your mom tried to make you do it blind folded. 🙂
Hi Nero, it’s great to be back after my holiday. Well done to the lucky winner. That quilt is mu favorite that Teje made, I always remember the bat story ;0) Have a wonderful summer and keep cool. Take care,
Congratulations to Benta! Nero is so clever 🙂 Thank you Teje for showing the garden quilt again. I once stayed in a holiday cottage which had hundreds of bats in the roof. We watched them fly out every night. Avis x
It’s long time no see but you look still so very handsome! I love the way you pick the ticket out! Congrats on the winner! The quilt looks all gorgeous, thank you for sharing!! Please say “Hi” to Teje and hope you both have a great day!!!
Lots of love,
Thank you Mia! No en kylla voi mitenkaan! Kesa jo muka puolessa – no meilla se on vahan myohemmassa kun koulut juuri vasta loppuivat ja elokuu on varsinainen lomakuukausi. Minulla on kylla aika rankka kesa, joten odotan ihan mieluusti syskya. Toivon silti teille sinne Suomeen tosi kuumaaaaa ja pitkaaaaaaa kesaa!
Happy Midsummer to you, too! We don’t have that celebration here but because we have worked so much with turists, we have organized sometimes really great parties on the beach for them. That was long time ago … x Teje
Toivottavasti ehdit lepäämäänkin jossain välissä ja nautiskelemaan auringossa neulomisesta tai virkkaamisesta? Mukavia kesäkuun viimeisiä päiviä, ja piipahdahan blogissani nappaamassa itsellesi “sunshine award”!
Kiitos Mia! Thank you so much! On liian kuumaa. Iltamyohalla nautin istua verannalla kun aurinko on laskenut ja viilenee ja on hiljaista. Thank you so much for a sunshine award! I hope you have finally lots of sunshine and warm summer! x Teje
Thank you so much Nero, for not eating my piece of paper! You have made me very happy!, I have had uch a busy week I have hardly had time to read emails or blogs, so this was a lovely surprise. Thnk you all for your lovely comments.
Congratulations to Benta, such a lucky winner! Love the dotty scarf, Nero! Your quilt is so lovely, especially because it is so personal to you and I love things which tell an individual story like this. Enjoy your weekend 🙂
Hello, Nero! Benta is lucky, lucky, lucky, and I so liked seeing your garden quilt again and all your little friends. You looked good in that blind fold,but I don’t think I would let Mom put one on me–I’d get scared. Sounds like summer at your place is going to be super busy–we will miss your posts cuz you always make us smile. xo Your friend, Lady Caroline
