a very quiet


celebration of this blog. It's been 3 years, today, since my first post.

The celebration is quiet, due to a shoulder that still needs rest. Also quite knocked out by a throat infection - bubbles and antibiotics is never a good match...

Still, three years is a reason to celebrate. My blog has been the source of so much fun for me:
sharing process and results, learning by doing tutorials and swaps, being inspired by others and getting lovely feedback...

The blog as a journal of my creations and connections is also important to me. I tried printing my blog about a year into this adventure. It's different from the blog. More like reading a diary. Since then I order a copy every 6 month - spring and fall issues...

Here they are - my quilting chronicles:


Thank you all for your nice contributions. They are cherished a lot!

Congratulations on 3 years Marit, that is an awesome achievement. I'm sorry to hear you are not 100%, and that your shoulder is not good. I too have had bad shoulder issues, I can commiserate with you. I love your blog Marit, your eye for colour is incredible and I love the patterns and designs you create. Keep up the amazing work. Fabulous idea getting your blog printed, where do you get that done? A lovely hardcopy of what you have created over the years, and how your quilting has evolved and grown. xo

Your blog is definitely one of my favorite reads. Congrats on three years. I'm looking forward to much inspiration from you. And I hope your shoulder recovers soon.

I think it would be awesome if you would do a short post on how to get blogs published. I really want to do that with some of my son and daughter-in-law's posts.
