Up and away

 I have a brief post today,

I’ve slowed down since summer started.

To me it’s the time to take a break from everyday life,

it’s time to smell the flowers,

enjoy the lazy warm days,

soak up the sun,

recharge my batteries,

relax :-))

Time for a nice afternoon with ice tea and two new magazines,

my favorite  one:


Just a few pictures from a lot of great projects – do I have to mention I love the bags?!





I don’t buy this magazine very often, but this issue has lovely quilts and other projects – the pincushion is so cute:



A simple and beautiful quilt in red, blue and white, and of course, a pretty bag!



 But guess what…

I still did some sewing!!!

Sneak peaks of two gifts for two dear friends!





One of my blocks from the Stitching along project “Busy Little Elves” with Melanie and Simone. I am not so far ahead like them because I am making a small version, it will be a wall hanging.



Time to:

dig out the suitcases from the attic,

fill them with a lot of stuff  (the ones we really need and all the ones we really could have left home…), 

try to choose which good books I should take (and read only one….),

decide which hand sewing project I should take (and forget the scissors at home or any other important part…),

pack the camera,

grab some notes and address book,

take the sun glasses,


see you!

I’ll be back in August,

wishing all of you

a very


signature Suzie

Happy Summer Suzie! Love the magazines, need to find me a copy of the Marie Claire too.

Days are slow and a bit lazy here, warm weather and the forecast is for even hotter days!

See you in August!
