WOYWW - Non Stop Scandi !

Well now I remember why I drifted away from Quilting & started Paper-crafting, Mixed Media and Art Journaling - because the projects just take so long !!

I seem to have been stitching these Scandi projects for a decade !!

I have the wall panel bordered up, layered & pinned ready for quilting - and now I have to do the same for the quilt topper.

Who knows how long the quilting will take - will I make it for THIS Christmas I wonder !

On my desk I have a few of the new Fresco paint colours and a small pot I have altered to store parking metre money in in my new car - a few Lavinia stamps and some Stickles for some bling !

Saturday was Hallowe'en and we have a few young children living in the close who like to dress up & come around collecting (with parents at a discreet distance !).

So I decorated the window sill in the lounge and had a tub of Hallowe'en Haribo sweets ready (well we are partial to Haribo and there are always some left over !!).

And got out my Pumpkin table runner too !

We had stunning weather over the weekend - gorgeous sunshine, not a breath of wind and temperatures in the late teens - amazing on the 1st November !

It was better than we had in August !

The maples in my garden were positively glowing in the sunshine !

The Golden Maple is extra special as it was a present from my Dad as a tiny tree and has moved house with me - it's getting rather too big for that now !

We even walked along the beach side in the sunshine on Sunday !

It certainly didn't seem like November !

Have a great crafty week !

  1. Your quilted pieces are so impressive, Ali. Well done. Love your garden pictures - hasn't the weather been amazing here in Wales? Sunday was glorious - Monday incredible in the fog - and today just beautiful and warm.
    Take care. God bless.

  3. I love your scandi quilts. Well done.
    Here in Spain the weather has been awful. But it does mean you are having good weather. It usually works that way. So enjoy!
    I loved to see the photos of your garden. Thank you.
    Have a good week,

  4. Wow! I just love the quilt. It may take more time, but wow! It is beautiful. And the little pillow is adorable.
