Another old quilting project

This is a pillowcase.
Also this project is hand pieced and hand quilted.
This is one of my first projects as I started making quilts.

Old quilting project

This is a quilt I made for my best friend when she got married in 2002, but she got the quilt about a year later :)
It is all hand pieced together, and I have handquilted it.
I love the colours of it.
I think my friend has used it both as a tablecloth and a wallhanging.

Birthdaycard for a sister

I made this card for my sister.
I love this butterfly die from QuicKutz.
The design is one I have seen on a card I received from a blogfriend some time back. I must say though that this card is not as pretty as the one I tried to copy.

Today my sons and my husband are leaving me. Luckily only for the week-end. I will stay home with my two dogs. And I will have a girly week-end. I have planned to make a couple of cards and I will watch a couple of girly movies. Maybe I'll fit in some reading too. And if I still have some time left I will clean the house.

Have a great friday, folks. Thanks for looking.

Hugs, Kristin :)

Two tags and a puppy :)

I was giving a little something as a summergift for my nephews living in Germany, and I made this tag to go with the little gift. I have had this Zorro-sticker for ages (since my own sons were younger) and it was perfect for this quick tag.

My sister had lent me a book and when I gave it back I put this tag on to say "thank you for letting me borrow it".

For those of you reading my blog more regularly you might remember me writing about my oldest dog. She got bone cancer and we had to put her to sleep end of July. Really sad, and she is truly missed.
But we saw that our other dog was sad as well, as she was missing her older "sister". And since we have loved to have two dogs around us we decided to look for another puppy.
Three days later we drove a long way to pick up our new puppy. She was 8 weeks old and we chose to name her Ilke. She's got one blue eye and one brown eye.

On this picture she is 8 weeks old.

Here she is closer to 10 weeks old and she has started to like to play with her older "sister".

Our life is almost back to normal now. Boys are back to school and I have my normal routine. Waking up 6 a.m. is not my favourite, but it is quite okay when I've gotten used to it again. With the puppy in the house it's not possible to sleep any longer anyway, since she is wide awake and tormenting her "sister" at this time every morning.

Thanks for visiting my blog. Have a great day!

Hugs, Kristin :)

Good luck

One of my colleagues was about to move to another part of the company we are working for. I will not have the pleasure of working with her anymore. To wish her good luck with her new job I gave her this card, and a small heart.

I wished her good summer-vacation as well.

The summer is definetly over here. It's raining today, and yesterday I think we had the coldest temperature in the morning for a long, long time. Soon it's time to put away my summerclothes. :)

Thanks for looking. Have a nice day.

Kristin :)
