Progress report, and I have been tagged

This is what I have been doing lately. Last night I finished quilting the blocks. Now I still have the dark blue areas to fill with stitches, four of them on each long side, plus the corners.

The reverse looks like a jiggsaw puzzle, the modern ones where you can put a sky bit in the garden and the shape is a perfect match but you can see it is not. I prefer the old hand made puzzles, where you can choose an interesting empty space and try to find the piece that belongs there.

Something new has happened to me. I have been tagged by Eileen's Attic. Here are the rules:

1. Once you have been tagged, link back to the person who tagged you.

(If, once again, my link in the text is not working, try the other link on the right)

2. Post the rules on your blog.

3. Post 7 weird or random facts about yourself on your blog.

4. Tag 7 people and link to them.

5. Comment on their blog to let them know they have been tagged.

As I'm fairly new in the blogging world I'll only tag five people. However, I'm rather weird so I'm ready to tell all seven facts. Here they come:

1. I don't have a driving licence because I never dared go to driving school.

2. I don't know how to ride a bicycle.

3. I walk a lot and use commuter trains ;)

4. I'm left-handed when I write but use tools in my right hand.

5. My most disliked household chore is window cleaning.

6. I like ironing.

7. I very strongy dislike mice.

These are the people I want to tag:

Kaija from paperiaarre, she is my lovely and talented daughter

Karen from Contemporary Embroidery

Helen from Quilts and ATCs

Susanna from Zen Yarn , she is my niece and busy with her little son

Lise from Norway in Lise's Blog

These are all blogs I visit often, and I would like you to learn to know them too. And of course I'm curious about their facts, too. And, again, if my links here in the text don't work, all these blogs have links on the right and they do work.


  1. Vilken trevlig idé.....och så otroligt vackert ditt täcke (för det är det väl) har blivit. Jag har följt det ett tag. Grattis

  2. Hi Ulla. Thanks for that, check out my bog and look at my pathetic attempts to reciprocate! The quilt looks amazing!

  3. Your quilt is beautiful! It looks like it was a lot of work, but worth it!

  4. Love the quilt. It looks perfect for curling up in. I enjoyed your facts. My husband just bought me a bicycle after not being on one in over twenty years. I was scared at first, but it is turning out to be much more enjoyable than it was when I was a kid. Now I'm off to check out the blogs you recommend.

  5. Ulla, that quilt is breathtaking! You are doing a beautiful quilting job.
    Love your weird facts. Not many people like to iron. But I'm with you about cleaning windows!

  6. Wow, your quiltmaking is incredible. You must be so patient.

  7. Hello Ulla!

    I had a vague suspiscion that I knew about the "lehmäkarkkeja", cause the cow candy I bought last Friday seemed so familiar. Thank you for the comment and confirming my thoughts!
    Lovely quilt you are making, you are truly talented at crafting!
    All the best to you!

  8. What a beautiful quilt Ulla!!
    It's amazing, but I nearly could have copied your personal facts as mine on my blog - although I write with the right hand, but can do nearly everything else with the left!! But, I tried to find some other facts to publish!!


Thank you for coming by! Please leave a message.
