I was looking through a shelf in my Quilt Corner and found a project that has been hidden in plain sight for a long time.
I can not remember when I started this, but I still love the blocks and the colours.
It makes me feel happy and grateful for being able to sew and having a lot of pretty fabrics, patterns and projects going on.
I need to move a focus project or two before picking up this project again 🙈😁💕

I have made it a long time goal to use as much as I can from my pink fabrics.
I cut fabrics yesterday and made the 88 blocks today.
I still like pink, but to much of a good thing is just that, to much of a good thing.........
Note to self: Use your prettiest fabric when they still are your prettiest fabrics!

I do not like plastic bags.
The look, the plastic bag sound the and the footprint on the environment do not appeal to me.
Therefore I use fabric bags whenever I can. I have several in different colours, all homemade 🥰
Today I have knitting in my bag - socks for my two wonderful grandchildren.
When done, the orange pair will be fox sock and the other pair will be snake socks.
I hope to get some knitting done tonight, when the small ones are in bed. It's a busy weekend with happy babysitting. We went to bed very early last night. I guess we'll do the same tonight 😁
I make my fabric bags foldable.
They are easy to store - not back pocket size, but fits well in my purse 😊
Happy Saturday to you ❤

I love how my family use my cushions in the living room ❤
I spotted this relaxed little foot and just had to take a photo.
My 3 year old grandson enjoying watching some cartoons, Grizzly and Lemen, before bed time, in his pj, sitting on the grandmother made cushions.
That's how memories are made 💙💙💙
Every morning I do stitchery with my morning coffee.
The very best start to a good day ❤
Currently I am working on Best Friends Forever by Rosalie Dekker.
I have finished 14 of 32 blocks so far.
Today I am testing blogging from my phone 🤗

Life has interfered with online time - some vacation, some family time and some other things going on, and the old procrastination called Tomorrow, Tomorrow
I have got a date for a hospital stay today, in a couple of weeks from today.
I can feel it lifted a heavy weight off of me. It will be good! I am prepping stitcheries for the time after.
It is needed, and it is nice that it can be done while I most likely will not need the machine.
I have been working away on my already started projects through the summer, like I planned earlier.
I have not counted my finishes yet - it has been a mix of older and newer projects.
The cushion above is a Kaffe Fassett design that I gifted myself for my birthday in April, and finished last week. It has more than 26.000 stitches and it was very fun to do. It is wool thread on cotton aida. It looks good in my living room. Maybe I will do more embroidery of the same kind in the future.
Have a wonderful day, wherever you are!
