My daughter Solveig is turning 10 today!
This is her as a baby.
And I was just emailed this picture from a friend who took this in march with her AWESOME camera!
Solveig is my ONLY child I actually labored with and pushed out- and she came out sunny side up!
Her name in Danish means Sunny Way so that kind of fits
When she grows up she wants to be a chef or own her own café – Sunny way Café !
I’m very proud of her, she’s a great girl and smart and a good student in school.
Today we’re having an after-school party.
10 girls total and 2 boys (my son and his friend Evan- as Evan’s two sisters are coming to the party and their mom is helping out)
I will post pictures tomorrow!

Last week I quilted this quilt for a customer (My only customer whom I’ve actually never met, she mails me her quilts from Raleigh)
It was this lovely Victorian looking quilt- I don’t know if you actually call it that, but that’s what I nick-named it
I quilted swirls and feathers all over it- so now Elizabeth is not the only one who likes that design!!
trying different angles and views to get better pics of it, as I’ve been told that sometimes it’s hard to see on blogger.
It’s mailed back and hopefully she liked it….
I also finished the CT mystery quilt- finally got to quilt it
I just quilted swirls all over it in white thread
a fun turquoise scrappy backing
and machine embroidered label I believe this was a free file by designsbysick
BTW if any of you want me to long arm a quilt for you, mail it to me, and if it’s over $150 I’ll ship it back for free (In the US)
Let me know!!
my long arm business has totally died over the last 1-2yrs, I know it’s because I live in the country – far away from any quilt store.
I need to write a letter to the stores and let them know about the free shipping offer and send business cards!
