The weather was so nice last week and now it is only rain, rain, rain and snails!
This week I have been busy sewing some hearts for my DS. It is her birthday soon. She wants some hearts to hang at door knobs and at bed posters. Let´s hope it is shabby chic enough to her taste.

I have been hand-quilting on my scrap basket quilt. I wonder wether I will finish it one day. Each time I start quilting on that one, another project appears which has to be finished before it!
I have registered for the last round of the 4SQS. I wonder who will be my partners this time. The picture shows the mini-quilt wall in my sewing room. The summer swap quilt (when I receive it) will hang where the black quilt hangs now. This quilt was my first attempt at free machine quilting and does not have to be on show all the time!
And finally, the socks I have finished this week too. They are the Leyburn socks which I knitted from the top down with some of the handpainted yarn from my spring parcel.

I like that pattern a lot and it looks nice on variegated yarn I think.
That is all for today. Snails and slugs here I come!

Tres chic!
Sieht nach VIEL Arbeit aus ... so mit Maschen heben und so ... toll, für das Wetter genau richtig. Ich hab auch deine Socken an. Draussen ist es so ungemütlich, da muss ich wenigstens warme Füße haben.

I love your mini quilt wall.

The hearts are so pretty! The ribbons on them are great too.

Your quilt wall looks great. I signed up for the last round of the swap too.

Your mini wall is just darling . . . love that little framed house.
We have been lucky this year and not too many snails. I guess they must have moved to your neighborhood *s*

I don't think snails are technically "weather"... :) But i sure know what you mean - we have a snail season here, too.

I love those hanging hearts. My sister would simply love them. Thanks for the idea, I'll for sure be making a few for her, for sometime in the future. Just want I needed to get rid of some of the dried rose petals I have from my crazy flowering rose bush. They'll be "scented". :)

The socks look absolutely brilliant, such wonderfully even knitting, plus all your sewing it's such a joy to visit your blog and admire your goodies.
