Lobelias and Klosjes

... are two of my favourite things!

With Spring in the air, Holy week starting and the kids already on their 2 week Easter break I am having to spend more time stitching 'on the go'...

I did manage 22 more Klosjes this week and I am very happy to have a chance to prepare some more today.

I hope You have Happy Stitching plans for the coming weeks and will have a very Blessed Easter celebrating with the ones you love.

We will be going to the mountains and I will miss visiting all of you. But I also hope to have plenty to share with you upon returning. ( maybe even some Applique? Thanks Sue-Anne and Michele!)

Happy Easter and Happy Stitching,



  1. Happy Easter and Happy Stitching Valentina! Your new batch of Klosjes look great.

  2. Happy Easter Valentina...have a wonderful time in the mountains that's my favorite place to go on you're Klosjes and lobelia very vibrant♥

  3. Lovely lobelias, and lovely growing pile of klosjes, together on your sunny terrace! I can almost smell the sweet perfumed breeze ;>)
    Don't worry, dear, I'll be with you in thoughts, there up in the mountains. I still remember the way... I'm missing soo much the awesome landscape, and I remember the kids playing and enjoying the beautiful nature to their hearts content ...

  4. Enjoy the mountain break Valentina, hope you manage some sewing. Something tells me you will have aomething beautiful to show us when you get back.
    Love Shirley.x

  6. Prachtige klosjes, wederom. Ze zien er fantastisch uit. De blauwe bovenin de foto zijn mijn favoriet, maar ik hou dan ook echt van blauw. En daarom ook van de lobelia. Is het vandaag je verjaardag? Zoja: van harte. Veel plezier in de bergen en tot de volgende keer!

  7. I love the colors you are using for your klosjes, Valentina! And the Lobelias remind me of home, my mother always has them on her porch.
    Enjoy your break!

  29. Hi Valentina,
    I hope your Easter was blessed. I have been to your blog several times and it is wonderful. I am just starting to make Klosjes and I really like the shape of yours. Would you mind sharing the dimensions and the directions for piecing them? I'm having a hard time getting started. They are just so cute, I'm wanting to join in the fun :). Thanks for sharing.

  30. How big are your klosje blocks and how many are you making? Is that lobelia? It's so blue it's almost shocking.

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
