busy post week

It is hard to believe that another week has gone by. The pleasant start to autumn is still with us, sometimes sunny, sometimes windy, but mostly dry. There is still plenty of colour to be found in the garden.

Our postman was really busy this week, having to walk the path to our house nearly every day.

The most important and exiting was a packet from Australia. This was the prize from a giveaway on Katherine's blog Rose Cottage, a needle case made by her.

This pretty little needle case has already found its way to my basket. 
No, I did not make the pin cushion either, this was another present from a friend. A needle case is something I have been promising to myself for a long time, but never got around to making one.
But as you see, this wasn't the only present from Katherine, there was also a nice little fabric card and a bar of CHOCOLATE! Well, I think we can take care of that! Thank you so much, Katherine!

What else did the postman bring this week?
Magazines, some new, some old and trusted.


With the new Quiltmania magazine arrived latest "architect's" drawings for the next housing settlement in the Yoko Saito's Mystery BOM quilt.
This is the largest one to date, not in size of the block, but in number of houses to be "built".

While in the meantime I am still busy building block 4.

Another arrival this week are the instructions for the next block of Lynette Anderson's Fernhill BOM.

Last night we saw on our television the last of the re-run of Downton Abbey, both series one and two, as tonight starts the brand new one, starting with Matthews and Mary's wedding, with the appearance of Shirley MacLaine as Cora's mother. Can't wait! See you there!

I wish you all a happy stitching week!


  1. Ahoj Radko,i u nás se již schyluje k podzimu.
    Já mám podzim docela ráda,pokud tedy není moc deštivo.Těším se z barev kolem a vzduch se mi zdá o něco dýchatelnější.Jehelníček je moc hezký.
    Přeji hezké příští dny ahoj liba

  2. You have a lot to do! I'm so jealous, we won't get Downton Abbey until after the new year.

    Hugs Gudrun

  5. So lovely to see your magazines, gifts and projects Radka. You are very fortunate to have one of Katherine's hand made gifts. She is a remarkably busy girl. Love your floral shots as always. Sadly, I don't get to see DA, and I know I would enjoy it......... Have a lovely week.
