About Ningiu

Ningiu is the Greenlandic word for grandmother, since I'm part Greenlandic and because handicraft reminds me of my grandmother and mother I find the name appropriate.

Sunday stash # 12 quilt festival goodies

If you have nothing to say, you can always show fabric ;-)
Uptown fabric by Erin Michael, found at the Danish quilt festival.

I went to the Danish quilt festival this weekend, and was actually pleasantly
surprised to find some pretty good fabric stores.
I forgot my camera so you will have to do with some fabric pics
Hopefully your weekend was as good as mine.

This is Dottie Daisy, and she is just the cutest little girl bug.
Christy from sweet tidings sent her to me as part of our bug swap.
This is Caramella. She is afraid of flying so I had to make her a little friend that could hold her hands, when she was sent all the way to the Philippines. I hope you like them Christy.

And because I had so much fun using Rebecca’s bug pattern,
I just had to make another little fellow.
Speaking of Rebecca from Blinking Flights, she is having a Pay It Forward thing going on at her Etsy shop where if you are lucky you can get one of her softies for 50 cent.
I was the lucky buyer yesterday, and I really look forward to be adding Dot to our family.
Take care

Busy as a bee

Well I haven’t been but the other members of the Euro bee has.
I’ve joined my first bee and was assigned with the first month. I sent out my fabric and instructions just before I went on vacation Saturday before last.

And already there are some amazing blocks popping up in the flickr group. I’m really excited about them, and get butterflies in my stomach every time there is a new pic.
Since we’ve been on vacation I haven’t been doing any sewing, but I brought along some embroidery supplies including patterns from Polka dot bunny. I’m thinking about using them for a fairy tale wall hanging, mixed with Heather Ross far far away,
and other fairytale themed fabric.

When returning from vacation Nicole from polka dot bunny
had sent me this great package filled with great goodies.
Thank you Nicole, it really made it so much better to return to normal life again.

Take care
