A happy boy!

This boy turned 4 and got his first quilt.
The first thing he did was chewing on the dinosaurs.
he does look happy, doesn't he!
This DBGK (Dear Bonus Grand Kid) of mine is going to be a big brother. Yes, I'm going to be a Nanna, a Mormor in swedish and in my family we say Mommo!
It's the first time I'm in it from the start, my DBGK I have known since he was a year and a half.
I'm going to be a Mommo in July! Can you tell I'm happy or what!

Friday Night Sew In or Easter Weekend affair as Wendy decided to name it this month. Thanks Wendy for hosting.
Friday I worked on the 2 blocks for Anne-Mette the Queen bee this month.

For the rest of the weekend I've been working on my knitting
and watching the equestrian world cup finals on tv
I even had a visitor staying overnight since my DD was working
She usually looks a bit happier but she's chewing on a treat and doesn't really want to look my way.

And now Easter is over, I hope you've had a great weekend!

Leap day 2016

A whole extra day, how good does that sound. Well I'm down with a cold and haven't been doing much at all.
I have joined in on OPAM this year also, and this is what I've accomplished so far.
13 pairs of mittens, here's a pic of some of them.
And two quilts that was actually finished last year but here I go showing them off.
the first one is a mystery quilt from Tyger & Ting. It's really hard to  pick the fabric when you don't know what the finished quilt will look like! I like it a lot so sometimes it's good to not be too controlling.

The second one is a Modern Millie Quilt from the book Contemporary Curved Quilts by Jenny Pedigo and Helen Robinson from Sew Kind of Wonderful.
Most of the darker blue fabrics I've had for quite a few years and I think it turned out great in this. Actually I Love it!
Do you want to see the lovely backside - leading question I know.
That's a great start to the year even if there wasn't a lot of action on leap day, at least not from my side.
