Happy Birthday to me!

My birthday is on the 29th, don´t know why I can´t get the date right......
OK, today I´m 48, that´s the truth.....but only on papers, in real life I´m still 20......

.....or not. My brain functions are like I´m at least 100.....
I´m searching for some kind of upgrade or rescue kit for a brain, model 1961.....can I get some help, please!!!!!
Do you remember the orange block from my last post.....beautiful fabrics, perfectly made (technically), square, perfect pressed.....but too small for that swap.....didn´t use my ordinary sewing machine.....discovered that the needle wasn´t in the middle.....didn´t check the seam allowances.....just pieced 35 blocks before checking. OK, remaking is fun, isn´t it!? After a closer look at the blocks I noticed that all of them were pieced in the wrong direction.....(not so beautiful words)......and I decided to remake my brain instead.....(and keep the blocks for another quilt, sorry).
Found a lot of brown fabrics in my stash and after a hard work day there were new blocks to send, just in time for the swap mailing date.....

Not so colourful, but I think they are OK......hope my swap partners like them to....

My silly little brain remembered my own birthday but forgot about my blog..... It celebrated 1 year on the 16th of May.... But it´s never to late for a little Give Away.... and because it´s a birthday, it´s a secret little parcel that I will send to the winner, but it will include something handmade..... So, leave a comment including the title of my first post (yes, I know it is in Swedish) and do so before next Monday....and maybe you will be the lucky winner! If I forget the drawing please tell me :)

Now I will jump (yes, that silly foot still hurts) to the shower....this afternoon there will be strawberry cake.....it´s a wonderful summer time here by me now..... 30 C yesterday....hot....

Happy Stitching,

Helena

Happy Birthday Helena! I have a 1961 model brain as well, and have found nothing to make it work better. If you do find an upgrade, please let me know! I'd be ever so grateful! LOL

And congratulations on a year of blogging too! Your first post was titled "Nu är det dags!" I only wish I knew what it meant! LOL Enjoy your day! :0)

"Now is the time!" or "Nu ar det dags!" Happy, happy birthday to you. Age is only a number and I can never remember mine. I have to figure out what year it is and then subtract my birth year - I hate math!
Keep smiling, you have a beautiful smile.

Your first post was "Nu är det dags!"

Jag kan tallar bara litten Svenska. I was reading your post and wondering "Now are the days!" and thinking it's got to be an expression I've not heard before. Thankfully someone else has translated.

Jag borja att lasa din blog for att jag skulle ville lara mera svenska. (I really need to figure out how to make the other characters on my keybord. :) And spell!)

Jeg vet det er en dag for sent, men "bedre sent enn aldri" heter det her i Norge.
