Today we have a special guest to announce our give away winner! And the winner for the My Memories Scrap booking software is … ANNE !!! Anne is our Norwegian friend from Oslo and she writes beautiful blog ‘Quiltefia’! Anne is knitting beautiful jackets and jumpers and she also sews fantastic quilts, bags and much more! Congratulations Anne!!!
Thank you ‘London’ for your help with our give away! ‘London’ is a Golden Retriewer and the sweetest girl! She is always happy and smiling and I’m happy to spend some time with her now and then. Here we stopped to take few photos on our morning walk. In the summer ,early in the morning, the light and colours are fantastic and London loves the beach! She loves to swim but enjoyes also just sitting there, watching and smelling the sea.
I think I’m a stash builder?! What’s that? Of course someone who builds a stash = collects fabrics! If you like to make patchwork and quilts, the more fabrics in different colours and prints you have, the better! These just came from Cindy from Fluffy Sheep Quilting! I love them and can’t believe I didn’t have any polka dots in my stash!
New project is beginning and you will hear all about that as soon as it’s ready! And more fabrics … these are souvenirs from Cypros! Would you have prefered parfum or chocolate?
These are canvas – perfect for bags, pouches, fabric baskets etc. And ‘writing’ – I have wanted fabrics with letters and text! There are some antique cars, old ships, coffee cups, tea pots and lots of text! Oh Nelli … I didn’t have yet time to hang the ‘Butterflies’ quilt and look who found it …
She loves to be up there and look what we are doing downs stairs.
Very soon it’s time to collect olives. This year our trees are so full of them. Olive trees make olives once an year and usually every second year they are full full and every second year there are less olives.
Beach starts to look empty even yesterday was a perfect swimming day! We had +30 C and south wind with bright blue sky! today clouds and strong wind; rain is coming.
I want to send my warmest thoughts and prayers to everyone even remotely touched by the storm Sandy. It has looked scary and terrible in the news and I can’t imagine how difficult it is for the people living there.
I hope you have a good November! Thank you for stopping by and for your sweet comments! Thank you also our new followers (Nero’s and mine) – we hope you enjoy your visits here!
What a lovely guest you have; London looks so sweet.
Did you really have NO polkadots in your stash? You are so right to buy them, because I think they look great with almost any other fabric. I would like to have a better look at your fabrics from Cyprus; they look great in this picture, but I guess there is a lot more to see.
What are you going to do with all those olives? I can think of many possibilities.
Enjoy your beautiful weather!
Thank you Dorien! I really didn’t have any, so it was time!
Our olives are for oil. They make very good oil and totally ecologic. We don’t have many trees but they give more than enough oil for our use and we use a lot! x Teje
I am so wanting to hug London! We had her look-alike (but male-Sparky) for 14 years(!) and so miss him!! (Sigh) Those ‘dots’ are wonderful….and really so versatile. I am missing those in my stash, also (not exactly sure why, though!?). Your photos are so lovely and those olives–yum!! Very brisk here-36F-and a bit frosty……a hint of what is to come! Love your butterfly quilt (and those “mug rug” butterflies, too!!! Hehe!) Hugs, Doreen
Thank you Terri, London is so soft and sweet to hug! I like olive trees even now they drop lots of olives front of my door and in spring all those tiny flowers fly every wehere. They are beautiful trees and it’s great to have some of them! x Teje
What a sweet dog London is! Your weather still looks lovely Teje, it’s turned very cold here. Your fabric stash is building up nicely, can’t wait to see what you make with some of it. Nearly the weekend, have a good one,
Thank you so much! We collect our olives on our own and then take them to a small ‘factory’ near to us, where they squeece the oil. Our olives are for oil and we have always our own oil. Have a lovely weekend! x Teje
What a beautiful dog London is! I think you always use lovely fabrics in you projects, Teje, and I love the colours you pick. The addition of lots of colourful polka dot fabrics to your stash is a VeRy good thing too!! I look forward to seeing them in your future makes🙂
Have a wonderful weekend.
London is beautiful! She is the dog I have in my dreams – my house is too smll, and my life is too busy, but in a perfect world I would have a London, anda Nero, instead I havetwo cats!!! The fabrics are lovely, the dots, but especially the print themed ones. The heart in the wood is beautiful too! So lucky the wood was cut just so
Thank you so much Ros! Now I think mostly fabrics but I have enough yarn also in baskets – lucky me – when ever the inspiration comes I’m ready to go! We still laugh with my sister how in Finland when we visite each others we used to look through all our yarns and make plans. It was fun! Now my sister is in England and I’m here and we can’t meet often. I wish you wonderful week! x Teje
