Just got them all together last night, 98 flowers, 50"x72" 
Now I need to fill up the border, with my "salmon pink" hexies.
That will take some time.
I bought half hexagon paper pieces, 
I don't know how that works, has anybody tried that?
Or is it better to appliqué  the top on the border?
This is my first hexagon quilt, so I'm not quite sure how to end it.
Just typical me, start something and then, think how to end it.

Nice little "siggies" arrived this week. 
Now I have collected 48 blocks from all over the world
and I will continue until I have enough for a quilt top. 

Yes, one more Sweet Nostalgia block finished, this one is for January called "Snow Days".

Until next time,
happy stitching.



Sweet Nostalgia + Three houses

Three more Houses Built from Scraps.
I like making them, but I have to be careful not to neglect my Dear Jane.
Must try to divide my spare time between these two.
That my friend can be difficult.

And also I finished my December block for Sweet Nostalgia
"Naughty Or Nice?"

This song has been going through my head for some time now:
"The colors of the rainbow so pretty in the sky Are also on the faces of people goin' by I see friends shaking hands saying, "How do you do" They're really saying "I love you." I hear babies cry, I watch them grow They'll learn much more than I'll ever know; And I think to myself, What a wonderful world; Yes, I think to myself, What a wonderful world. Oh yeah! - Louis Armstrong"

I just love that text.

Until next time, have a wonderful stitching time.



Building Houses From Scraps

Hello friends, long time since my last blog. 
I went to Iceland to celebrate Christmas with my family. 
It was nice, lots of snow.

Started my first block there
"Building Houses From Scraps"
I'll not be making one a day, just when I feel like it.
I have so many other projects going, 
I really should not start this one - but I did.
I'm still working on "Sweet Nostalgia" December block,
My Flower Garden is growing,
The Civil War Bride is resting, I have 9 blocks done,
Still working on DJ and I'm quilting The Farmhouse. 
Yes, and I'm still collecting "Siggies",
two were waiting for me when I came back home.

The newest family member is Kolur, German Shepherd four months old puppy,
belongs to my son, isn't it just gorgeous????

Some pictures from Reykjavík, this is Hallgrímskirkja
the largest church in Iceland,  (74,5 meters (244 ft))
The church is named after the Icelandic poet and clergyman Hallgrímur Pétursson.

This is just a small street called Lokastígur near the church.

And this is the Einar Jónsson (Icelandic sculptor) Museum, 
just opposite the church.

I wish you all a Healthy and a good Stitching-Quilting New Year.
