Three flowers and a joke

Three more flowers for my Flowergarden this Wednesday,
and a picture by Rébecca Dautremer the French illustrator I like so much,
for those of you that have not seen the pictures on my Dear Jane blog.

A friend of mine sent me this joke the other day, some of you may have heard it and some not.

40 Years of Marriage

A married couple in their early 60s was celebrating their 40th wedding anniversary in a quiet, romantic little restaurant. Suddenly, a tiny yet beautiful fairy appeared on their table. She said, "For being such an exemplary married couple and for being loving to each other for all this time, I will grant you each a wish."

The wife answered, "Oh, I want to travel around the world with my darling husband."

The fairy waved her magic wand and - poof! - two tickets for the Queen Mary II appeared in her hands.

The husband thought for a moment: "Well, this is all very romantic, but an opportunity like this will never come again. I'm sorry my love, but
my wish is to have a wife 30 years younger than me."

The wife, and the fairy, were deeply disappointed, but a wish is a wish.

So the fairy waved her magic wand and poof. . . the husband
became 92 years old.

The moral of this story:

Men who are ungrateful should remember:

Fairies are Female . . .

So guys, be careful what you wish for . . .

You never know what can happen . . .

Best wishes to you all and happy quilting.




Wow - I got ribbon in Iceland,  for the best handcraft.
I could hardly believe it when I got e-mail from
Borghildi Ingvarsdóttir the chairman of the Icelandic Patchwork and Quilting Association telling me this.
Unfortunately I could not be there, but my son Ófeigur, was there for me. 

The Icelandic Patchwork and Quilting Association, Íslenska bútasaumsfélagið, was established in the year 2000. At the inaugural/first meeting there were 140 members from most parts of Iceland. Today the members are 400.

10 years anniversary

Congratulations to Íslenska bútasaumsfélag.


Mariner's Compass

Some years ago I learned how to draw Mariner's Compass at the QU.
The other day I used the drawings and made these four 12" circles.
It was fun - paper pieced -  I do like paper piecing.
I will have to do some more or I can use this as four corners for a big middlepiece.

Block #7 was my sixth block for my CWB Quilt

Here they are - all six of them together.

I also finished E-5 for DJ
you can have a look at my Dear Jane blog

Have a wonderful week and thank you for stopping by.
