by Teje Karjalainen

Nero’s memories and winner!


Vof vof vof!!! My photographer was away all the day so I thought to show you few old photos. Would you like to see how I was when I started my blog 3 years ago …

beautiful shephard

Very handsome if I may say! Still had both of my ears up … before that horrible summer and surgery – glups!

cute puppy

Can you believe that this is me? Almost 9 years ago! Sorry about the fluffy photos but she didn’t have digi-camera then. I looked so wise – all the world was open to me and who would have guessed that I shall be writer and have readers all around the world!

Nero's garden quilt

I have showed many quilts in my blog. This was one of the first and mine. I have put here all the friends I have in my garden and the neighbour dogs. Most of these little animals are very special for me. I have resqued the bat and the frog and with the hedgehog we used to have a meeting every evening front of the house.

Nero's give away

Here I am having my first give away. I took my job very seriously and kept the scarf all the time on my eyes not to see the names. Hanna did her best to help. Oh boy, I was so nervous, if I make it right!

Nero's give away

I didn’t know what paper I should pick. I was so reliefed when I heard that the point is to pick just anyone!

Today I have been waiting here to do the picking again … there was so many papers in my hat! Thank you all and every friend for writing mesagges to me! You had so great ideas for the notebook … my favourite was to keep it next to our bed and write every evening one good thing that happened that day. My good thing for today is that I have my blog and so many amazing friends around the world! Hugs to you all!

Nero's give away

Sorry there is birdie’s poo in this photo but I had to stay in the shadow … but my hat is cool … I mean great … and also cool … and filled with your names. Unfortunately I couldn’t pick any name and hb came to help me. At once he had picked one paper and I want to announce the winner.

Drrrrruuummmm ….. aaaaand ….. thheeeee …… wwwiiiinnneeeeerr …. iiiiisssss ….. SONJA !!!!!! YEEEEE !!!!! Congratulations Sonja and Lady Caroline! Lady Caroline said that she will write her ideas and plans for her own quilt she wish her mom will make for her. Lady Caroline, I’m sure your mom will make you a little, soft quilt now when you can make the plans in your new notebook.

Here it is, black on white! Thank you again everyone who joined my give away! If you didn’t win this time, no worries, soon I have a birthday! Jippiiii – I love cake and goodies!


I know that you girls like to see fabrics, so I show you what there is on the sewing table …

She said that she decided something about grannies? What are grannies? And who believes that she made up her mind so easily?

There is always just too many possibilities!

Thank you so much for your visit and mostly for your amazing comments on our latest quilt!!! Someone has been tearing here when reading your comments. She has been really touched about your most sweet and kind words! I give you my biggest hug because she doesn’t know how to thank you enough!

Nero's Post and Patch

This was my blog’s first header photo. It was so difficult to make and choose it because then I didn’t know that I can change it. After that I have had so many different headers – it’s always fun to change my look!

Hugs and Kisses!!!!!
