...was the year I switched jobs. I got to work closer to home and with something I love doing.

...was the year I buried both my mother and my grandmother. The two women that has had the biggest impact on my life, both killed by cancer, are gone. I miss them, alot. The pain sometimes makes it difficult to breathe but somehow we all go on, one step at a time.

Mother & Grandmother

...was the year dear friends got married!

Anna & Mikke

...was the year our third beautiful, beautiful baby boy was born.


...was the year my mother-in-law had a massive heart attack and survived!

...was the year I lost my inspiration to sew - and got it back again!

...was the year we stayed home for Christmas - and loved it!

I wish you all a very happy new year and may 2012 be the year of new beginnings, new hopes and new dreams!

Loved, missed but never forgotten.

Today would have been my mothers birthday and the beginning of our christmas celebration. That is the way it's always been in our family. Instead there has been a lot of tears. I somehow didn't think today would be so difficult, I was worrying about tomorrow and therefor the grief and sorrow sort of blindsided me and made me inactive. But today also became a time of rememberence and a chance to look forward and create new habits.

Hold on to your loved ones! You never know when they will have to return to sender.

Busy day!

Today has been a really busy day, mainly for my husband and the ones who helped us. This morning our good friend Stefan came by and built us a new staircase. Our old one was dangerous and has given us a lot of worries. This is how nice the new staircase lookes like!

Also my brother and his wife came to visit. They wanted to buy the stove from our hot tub and so they also helped us to dispose of the old hot tub. They also took both our old couches with them as we have no use for them and my father wanted to take care of them for us :).

Also we've helped our bonus daughter to pack for a week hiking in the mountains and living in a tent. Her whole class is going and they are leaving 5.30 in the morning! Hope they get a wounderful week and lots of sun!

I'm VERY slowly getting my sewingroom together. I think it'll be great once i'm done and I can already feel the inspiration coming back. Several projects that I want to begin with and some of mothers projects that I want to finish. As soon as I'm all done I will show you pictures ;-)

Det kom en stilla vind
och smekte ömt din trötta kind.
liksom ett ljus som blåstes ut,
din levnadsdag har nått sitt slut.

I found this lovely little suitcase when shopping in Piteå a while ago and I just fell in love with it.

It is now holding all my precuts =).

Brita gave me an award!

It's an award to us bloggers with less then 100 followers, as a small encouragement. This is how it's done:

1. Post a link to the giver.
2. Send to 5 other bloggers.
3. Answer 5 questions.

1. Why did you start blogging?
I started blogging 4 years ago when our first child was born prematurealy. It became a way of letting family and friends know what was going on as we had to spend 3 months at the hospital. Later on the blog more and more came to be about my great quilting interest and a nice way to keep in contact with other quilters.

2. What blogs do I follow?
I read the blogs of family and friends but also the blogs of good quilt designers and other blogs about quilting.

3. What's my favourite color?
I love blue, but in my quilts I mostly use pink :)

4. What's my favourite movie?
I'm not so much about movies but give me some crime series and I will watch them all :)

5. What country would I like to visit and why?
I'd love to go to Australia! I have relatives there that I've never visited and I know they have some great quiltstores too!

And I'm sending the award to:
Lotta, Eva, Marica, Camilla och Sofia.

Home again after spending a week in Arjeplog with the boys. We've had busy days between visiting my sick grandmother and helping dad clean out my mothers sewingroom. When we arrived monday you could not see the floor in that room because of all the clutter! Come friday it looked like this:

Not too bad huh? Now alla I have to do is work out where in my own sewingroom I'm going to fit all the stuff that I took home with me. But that's going to be a pleasent problem :) Thank you Lotta for all your help! I couldn't have done it without you!
