Denise has just sent me this fantastic picture. She used elements of the Blackwork sampler pattern to create a wedding sampler. Very creative! Isn't it just beautiful?
Thank you, Denise, for sharing it with us.
Easter is coming! Spring is here! I am so excited. Went for a walk today and saw the first blåsippa - that is anemone hepatica, or liverwort, kidneywort or pennywort in English (according to Wikipedia). Here are a few pictures from my walk. The pink flowering bush is something we try to find every year, but I forgot the name, I will ask Stephen when he wakes up :D
I thought this is something to celebrate, so that's why I made this pattern for you. It is simple and easy, and there is still time to stitch it for Easter. It is small, so you can use it for a card or put it on a cushion or on a door hanging. Lots of colours, bunny and flowers - I hope it will lift everyone's spirits. It certainly made me happy. :D

I was busy lately, but somehow didn't manage to write on the blog. Let me make up for it. Here are a few things I have been working on.
Serendipty II is finished:
I got a new mobile so I made a new cross stitched mobile phone case.
I did lots of English paper piecing, love these hexagons. They are also perfect for using even the smallest scraps.
I think this photo I made of the hexagon paper templates turned out to be really cool. :)
I continued working on the quilt I am making for my daughter, made of 7,5 cm (=3 inch) half square triangles, I was totally crazy when I decided on this. :D But it is going to be lovely.
I also made a quilt top from some cool panels.
I am hopin to be able to finish quilting these myself. I started learning free motion quilting.
I made some softies, like this kitty...
...and this bunny.
And this is a summer bag, for going to the beach.
I also did some knitting:
double knitted hat and mittens, with my own pattern...
as well as these hats. I am going to publish the pattern for these soon.
I also learnt how to knit from top down. For this little sweater I followed a pattern. Unfortunately it became smaller than expected, but I will find someone who can use it, and I am planning to knit another, slightly bigger one now.
Whoa, I got tired just from showing you all this - and this is the result of the last three months. Not too bad, is it?
I also have some more things that I started but they are far from being finished, so I will show you later.
HAPPY SPRING! :D
