Say it with flowers, It's my day :-)

Finally it's my day.......

Many thanks to Mdm Samm and Carol 
for organizing this hop for us.
Carol's day was 27th.(yesterday) and mdm Samm is always the last one,
on the 4th. of June.
Don't forget to visit their blogs....

Who can resist flowers. I took some pictures in front of my house yesterday.

A rowan who planted itself  in one of my flowerpots, some years ago.
This is the first time it's blooming

A Geranium I had on my balcony for years

and a newly planted Spanish daisy,

OBS,,,,, no flower, but who can resist ?

Anyway, when I entered this hop I had no idea of what to make.
Suddenly it cleared, and I started to work.
Some time ago when I was visiting my mother ( now 86 years ), I had to change a curtain fabric into some cushions, and got a lot of fabric left over. Promised my mother to make something with it.
First I made a pattern for a handbag, and then one for a PC-cover.

And here you can see the result:

Pockets with zipper, and without, inside.

And the PC cover....
Easy to put in a bigger bag when travelling....

Before I sewed it together. You can see its pockets on both sides. One big  in  the middle for papers, and on the right side it's 4 smaller one's for visit cards, and other important stuff.

And finally, a quilt in progress; its my BOM from ÖQ, from 2011, in quilting, at last. :-)

Simple as that!

And so to my fellow hoppers of today. Don't miss them!!

4 dager igen til bloghop, og ny strikkegenser :-)

Under våren har jeg strikket på en genser I Angoragarn....( med små hår overalt som resultat.) :-)
Den heter " Drömmegenser" , og mönster og garn kan dere kjöpe her:
Den ble veldig fin, men modellen jeg skulle prove på hadde ikke tid, så det får bli  disse bildene.
Om dere klikker på lenken ser dere orginalen.
Jeg har strikket en i off-white også, så dette er genser nr. 2.

During the spring I have been knitting this sweather, in soft and warm angora yarn.
The pattern and the yarn can be ordered from the link above.
This is in a light grey colour.


Beklager dårlig lys, men det er hva som finnes...
Genseren syns bra på lenken til Pickles
Sorry for the quality of the pictures...

And, on the 28th. I will be presenting my work for the Blog Hop, Say it with Flowers....
Here you will find the list of all participants... :-)
Please welcome back.
Have a nice week-end. ;-)
See you...

Ny bloghop og bilde fra USA

Hei igjen.

Det har värt liten aktivitet på bloggen, men det har skjedd mye på syrommet. Desverre kan jeg vise dere det enda, det skal väre til bloghoppen " Say it with Flowers" og min dag er 28 mai. Ikke glem å titte inn da. :-)

I mellomtiden kan dere jo se på dette. Det henger nå på sin plass i Charleston, SC.
De nye eierene ble veldig glad for teppet, og det er litt uvanlig med svenske Dalahester i USA.

The new owners of "Dalahest" was very pleased with this gift. It's a memory from Sweden...
and they are Swedish. :-)
Have a nice day. :-)
