Blog break

Just want to say I haven't forgotten all you wonderful blogging friends, and that I really miss the blogging community. But my life is a bit upside down at the moment, (UPDATE: this is some trouble at work that has my mind twisting a bit), so I won't be blogging or commenting to any blogs for a while. I want to say thank you to everyone who commented on my previous post, and sorry I haven't sent you a personal e-mail as I usually do.

Hope everything straightens out and that I'll see you all soon! Take care!! Sincerely, Anne Ida

Disappearing 9-patch

We had some really hot weather last week, so on Tuesday I packed my bags and went to the summer house for a few days to get some air. The weekend I spent with my sister, including a trip to the summer exhibit at LQS - Lappemakeriet. So that's the reason no one has heard from me lately, I have a list of e-mails I need to answer, and according to Bloglines I have over 400 new posts to read, so it might take me some time to get through them all, so please have patience with me.

I don't have much quilty news, but I do have another finish! A while back there was a block exchange on Stoffbytteklubben; we swapped 12" nine patch blocks in blues, greens and creams. All in all 30 blocks made by Astri, Elin, Kari, Karin and myself:

Sunday before I left, I cut my pile up and pieced the top together and layered it. And on Monday night I quilted it with some large meandring. I finished the binding at the summer house and left the quilt down there to be used and enjoyed through the autumn.

Oh, and I just have to share this little cutie - my sis and I came across him/her near the river on our way home from the LQS - isn't he adorable? And sooo tiny and perfect:

Oh, and my shopping at the LQS? I was a pretty good girl and only got a few things:

Happy quilting!
Sincerely, Anne Ida
