Give a Heart

Shirley in New Zealand is calling out to all quilter around the world
to give a healing heart,  for the families of 29 miners who
 tragically died last week in New Zealand.

You can visit her blog at Shirley's blog and read what size and where to send it.

I made these two hearts while listening to a devine service
 in Iceland over the internet.
It's amazing - the technique - here I am in Luxembourg and can listen to a mass in Reykjavik, live.

My newest book

As you can see, it is a lovely book with lots and lots of stitching.

Happy stitching



I have to update my blog, what is the matter with me,  is it idleness or what???

Well - I started "siggie" where Annelies in The Netherlands is the host
and received her block which is very nice,
Three monkeys - See no... hear no... speak no evil

I'm knitting this sweater

for my son Ófeigur, he is the author of this book JON

The book was published few days ago and I have to say it is very good.
This is his second novel.
I'm sorry to say it is in Icelandic .

Here he is at the Quilt Show in Iceland last September
when I won a  prize for Þingvellir
and he was there for me.

Happy stitching to you all and have a nice weekend



Hand dyed fabric and two flowers

For my Flowergarden I did these two flowers and
have now 53 flowers and some hexies done.
About 100 flowers will be needed, haven't decided yet on how large it will be.

Then I made
 these butterflies and flowers to put on a miniquilt.
I like making little embellishments for quilts

I bought this
Friendship Triangles book by Edyta Sitar the other day,
it is a beautiful book and it has step-by-step technique for
creating half-square triangles among other things.

Have been dyeing
some fabric for my  Dear Jane Quilt

"Happiness is to be found along the way,
 not at the end of the road, for then the journey is over and it is too late.
Today, this hour, this minute is the day, the hour, the minute for each of us
to sense the fact that life is good, with all of its trials and troubles,
and perhaps more interesting because of them."

Take care and enjoy what ever you are doing.
