Home again... ;>)

Back from a healthy break at our Belgian seaside,
where the weather was quite chilly and windy, but sunny,
allowing looong, invigorating walks along our beautiful littoral
Of course, some attractive shopping was due too !
When I saw this cute suitcase/box,
I just knew it was waiting for me...
Don't you think it's exactly what I needed to keep my
"Life is Beautiful" project in progress ?

Of course, lovely tin boxes were winking at me, as well,
And you all know I can't resist tin boxes !
I can always find a good reason to bring them home
Home.... where lovely mail was waiting for me !
You might remember I was the lucky winner of Lynette Anderson's
"Scandinavian Christmas" BOM pattern set giveaway
and it's already here, and sooo beautiful...

THANKS A BUNCH, dear Lynette,
this was so generous of you !
And what's new on the quilting/piecing/stitching front ???
Hey, but now I'm here, ready to catch up,
with hopefully some nice progress to report by next week
