Olympic Fever!

Oh Canada!
Some proud Canucks around here today...

Klosjes update: I managed to complete another 6, and mark quite a few more. I have only been using scraps, but I really like how the colours are coming together

This is my Olympic challenge for the next 2 weeks: To embroider the 14 names I have left to do on my Sept. Potluck 09 Hexies, assemble them plus that stack of hexies!

Robyn, look what arrived just in time! Thank you, sweetie!

I hope everyone has their own Olympic quilty dreams that they will accomplish in the next 2 weeks,



  1. I love the fact that you are using all dots fabric for your hexagon flowers! Very cute! I keep seeing these little spools and I just love them. I think I am going to have to try making some. I think I recall you posting that they were tiny at 2.5 inches? I certainly have enough scraps from various projects to do it! :0)

  2. Hi Valentina, love your klosjes!! In about 1 hrs time we will be stuck to the screen to watch the 5.000 mtrs with our Sven! Lots of orange coloured fabrics, talking about proud hihi! tks for your mails with pic, you will be hearing from me in the next few days! XXXD

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
