Coming Down to Earth...

Having Nadine around was like having a 'Quilters' Party in a Box'.
And we did swoon and lose our breath over our new shared fabrics like Moda's Breath of Avignon, amongst others (Thank you, Thea and Gin!).

So "Coming Down to earth" ;) is taking a bit longer than I thought.

But a softer landing was provided by the the Lovely Sandy of Vintage Sandy when I received her lovely Valentine Give-Away. Thank you so very much, Sandy!

While finding my feet again and figuring out what how to tackle my next projects, I have been keeping busy with my Klosjes.

Another dozen joining the group! I am really loving the scrappy look of them...
That makes 38 all together.

This morning the sun is out so I will continue washing my new beauties and dream...

Don't you just love the smell of fresh laundry in the sun?
These pictures are dedicated with lots of Love to all you suffering cabin-fever in the snow and rain... Come dream with me!

Have a great weekend!


  1. Hello Valentina,
    I have just found your blog and I love all those beautiful fabrics on your airer. I will have to come back now to see what you make with them.

  2. Oooooh, looking at those pictures makes me feel still there, in heaven ! Such a lovely week and fun, and giggles, (and emotions)....
    The fabrics are looking still more yummy, drying in the sun, and I'd better check the weather and wash them on first springy day- which won't be this weekend, apparently :>(
    Beautiful giveaway, AND CUTE, CUTE klosjes.
    We're on a roll now ! WooooHoooo....

  3. I have just read Nadine's post and now yours. I'm so happy you both had a wonderful time and pleased that you got a surprise in the mail to soften the blow from losing your special guest. Those fabrics look beautiful drying in the sun and I am still in love with those little spools. Have a great weekend.

  10. I'm glad you guys had a lovely visit together. The new fabrics look great hanging there in the sun.

  11. Hallo Valentina,
    Was ik er toch heilig van overtuigd dat ik al gereageerd had op jouw reactie. Het lijkt me hartstikke leuk samen de klosjesquilt te maken. Zo moet het wel lukken die af te maken. En wat een overeenkomsten: hoe oud zijn jouw jongens? En hoe lang ben je nu met je klosjes bezig?

  12. These fabrics are absolutely beautiful Valentina, you also have such a pretty name! I am so pleased to now be part of the SPOOL block club.

My Patchwork Family Through Adoption

A Bit of Africa and China
Came knocking on our door
And in a home where there was longing
Now empty rooms no more

Like a Quilt of Many Colours
Our Family stitched together into One
God's Love and Grace for us Abundant
In the Miracle of our Sons
