WINTER here in Canada…

…..not like my home town Möhlin in Switzerland. They are as of  tomorrow  in full swing of  “Fasnacht” Carnival

But to top it of even more a friend of mine  has seen  “Schlüsselblümli ” in the forest out already….really I am crying now!

“Schluesselbluemli” one of my faves, (not the picture she posted on Facebook)






It used to be that you there…Yes You,“Weather in Switzerland” !

were a month ahead of us here in the Canadian North of Toronto, but not two full Months!!!

What was my day like youmay ask …smiles fun filled with snow! Really softly falling down this morning, shoveling during the day, sunshine to finish the perfect day at minus 15 temp…cooooollllll

Yes, You see it correctly I have skis on the fence and that all year around…

just my kind of artsy funky fun…





File 2018-01-30, 7 39 00 PM“Sew TOGETHER Bag” is this awesome bag  from “Sew Demented” that anyone can sew up in a day for first time using the pattern…Well it took me 5 hours for this one. Really had to think what it is telling me to do next in the pattern…and not rush into sewing sections together.File 2018-01-30, 7 38 42 PM



So I took my time and looked everything over twice before I cut or sewn the sections together..

and It worked out pretty amazing I think…This bag is perfect for Knitting or sewing notions. I’ll make a view more for sure…just need more zippers and some fabric…but guess what? SMILES……I am working Friday and Saturday so I have that alllll……right in front of me alllll day…smiles.  Ok If you like I can show you too where we have the pattern and help you with selections for the fabric ….looking forward to see you then. Really love this Sew together bag…..



New Blog Look and Website

File 2017-03-30, 12 02 25 PMHello every one hope this will find You all happy and healthy and ready for the warmer Spring Weather. You may have noticed a little bit of a change in the look of my blog.

“At this point I also would like to say Thank You to all of You that have been following my Blog for so many years ….I love to see You all enjoying what is my Passion. Thank You.”

Like Spring I thought it would be nice to change a little stuff up on my blog. Now you see the main picture of my blog post instead of the full post. You can click on it and it will open up the new post. Or You can scroll to the right and find an older post click on it and voila it will open up the article.

This I thought is easier for you so one does not need to  scroll through each blog post if one wants to only look at the quilt etc.

Also new:  You go to “KnitswissYarns” it will take you now to my Online-Shop from there you have a choice to shop or go to Jacqueline’s Blog exactly the same as this site.

At one point I will merge them all together as one but not at this time….So enjoy and hop you all will have a wonderful Spring.



Hallo Ihr Lieben Freunde… hoffe bei Euch ist alles Gesund und Munter . Freut Ihr Euch auch auf das wärmere Frühlingswetter?  Sicher habt Ihr schon gemerket das ich meine Blog Look ein bisschen Verändert habe.

“Hier möchte ich mich bei Euch recht herzlich Bedanken für Euren Besuch währent den etliche vergangen Jahre.  Mein “Passion” Euch zu zeigen und die netten Worte von Euch freuen mich immer….”

So, ‘Frühling’ perfect auch hier etwas zu erfrischen. Jetzt siehst Du das Hauptbild meines Blogs anstelle des ganzen Beitrags. Du kannst darauf klicken und es wird den neuen Beitrag eröffnen. Oder Du kanst nach rechts scrollen und auf einen  älteren Beitrag  klicken und es wird den öffnen.

Dachte es ist einfacher und schneller ein bestimmten post zu sehen.

Auch neu: Wenn du zu “” gehst,

Es bringt dann meine Webseite hoch mit meinem Online-Shop.

Da hast du die Wahl zum Einkaufen oder zum Jacqueline’s Blog zu gehen.

So Enjoy und wünsch Euch allen einen wunderschöne Frühling
