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.

Hello again...

Well, hello there....
Long time no post... I'm sorry for leaving you alone for so long! But I've been so busy these past months. I had finals in June, a birthday in May, and in between school, kids and everyday life, time has just flown by.

Speaking of May, it was my month in the Bee Europa, I asked my fellow bee members to make a sort of strip stacking block, using Erin Mcmorris' Wildwood fabric.
And here are the result so far:

I think it's going to be great...

I also had my fist final in school, it lasted about a month, and consisted of several different steps, that I won't bore you with here. But I am going to show you the final product:

A blouse I designed, made pattern for, embroidered and sew. (I got a good grade by the way :-)
Afterwards, Laura and I went on a long weekend to London. We had such a great trip, just the two of us.
We went to the wonderful Victoria and Albert museum, where I could have spent an entire week. It just so happened that they had a great exhibition about quilts, that was very good.
They even had some special edition fabrics that I couldn't resist:

We also went by several different fabric stores carrying Liberty of London fabrics, and I just might have went a little overboard in fabric shopping, but how often do one get to go too London right ;-)

And for those of you readers who's still here despite my recent blogsilence, and for those who made the end of this post, I'm going to share some Liberty love:

A small scrap bag with different liberty prints.
For a chance to win, leave a comment here before July 15'th, and be sure to leave a way for me to contact you!!
Thank you for tunning in in!!
Take care
Isa
