Slowly back to normal ... Here is block C ...



Hello again everybody,

I`m back; not for full,but doing my best. My wrist and things are still not the best to work with.It`s bound to go slower than I first thought. But the cast/(plaster?) is just off,and I have had a busy weekend,sewing and organizing this and that.

During my absence I have,among things,enjoyed checking this blog and looking at all the lovely new blocks. OMG(!),I think all blocks are so great,and not to mention the whole quilt being finished. It is so clever of some of you that you really pick your own version of fabrics. I always have great difficulties choosing fabrics! Anyway I just love this specific border fabric,and now I am glad I at last decided to use it. Have had a long time to think,you know.

We`re having a good summer up here closer to the north pole,but still waiting for warmer days to come.A fortnights holiday down south of Norway coming up on July16. As it is bound to be suncream and sand around,must pick carefully what to bing for handcrafts. Gosh,may be not GJ! Well,still a long time till next year :-) We have plenty of time all of us,I think.

Glad to be with you again! Till next time: Happy Stitching to all :)

I'm with you Grethe ... I love the border fabric too and decided to wait until I got it before I started so I could incorporate a little bit into each block. I'm nearly done with my block for June but there is heaps of stitching in it! Wish we were somewhere a little warmer now - I live a fair way north of Chookyblue in Australia, but it is still freezing! Thanks for sharing and hope your wrist is better soon! x

I am glad to see you are back again. Hopefully your wrist will heal well even if it takes time.
You did a great job with the C block and you are not behind scedule. I am just coming home from a one week trip to Paris, so I also have to catch up.
