So much to share

On January 15, I won Lyn's Whirl into Winter giveaway. The parcel came in on Friday. How spoiled can one be, receiving two gorgeous parcels in one week? And look what Lyn sent me: a beautiful wooden bell which makes a very warm sound, a lovely note pad - one can never have enough, the pattern for the Star Light Star Bright bag by Jennifer Knol & Yolanda Tomlins, a lovely wall hanger and ...

the Quilt House table topper. A beautiful quilt, that fits exactly on our living room table (not on the picture). It is beautifully made and quilted. Thank you so much Lyn, for this wonderful giveaway (O:

On Friday I finally finished my table runner for the monochromatic 4 season swap. It's my first monochromatic quilt and my first table runner.
Each light block has a little stitchery from A Christmas Story by Anni Downs from Hatched and Patched.

And here are two of my little snow bells that grow in my garden and open when the sun is shining. They look so pretty!

Then please check out the swap Darci at Stiches & Siccors is organizing. You don't have to make anything and have until the 11th to join in.

Take a look at these three free BOMs:
2. They also have a Free BOM 2008.
3. Friendship Flower Quilt at Grandma's Stitches. If you look through this blog, you can find many beautiful free patterns. She also sells cute patterns with fabrics. I'm glad dear Jutta mentioned this blog to me!

I hope you all have a lovely week! Happy stitching and quilting (O:

Liebe Simone,
ein wenig "neidisch" bin ich schon, aber ich freue mich mit dir über deinen supertollen Gewinn !!!! Aaach, deine Freude springt aus den Blog-Zeilen, herzlichen Glückwunsch dazu.
Dein schönes neues Benutzerfoto habe ich auch gleich entdeckt, ich muss auch mal ein neues Bild von mir einstellen ...... nur, mich fotografiert meistens niemand, ich mache die Fotos bei uns in der Familie.

Einen guten Wochenstart für dich, herzliche Grüße aus dem zur Zeit sonnigen Berlin (immer noch keine Schneeglöckchen), deine Jutta

Deine Jutta

Liebe Simone,
bei Dir ist ja immer viel los! Wie schaffst Du das alles nur? Dein "Grüner" gefällt mir sehr gut. Genieße die Schneeglöckchen, wir haben noch keine. Und bei dem Wetter heute dauert das sicher auch noch eine Weile.
Ganz liebe Grüße

your monochromatic runner is wonderful. i love the embroidery in the light squares - especially the round ornament and the bare little tree.

thanks again for your nice comments about my little valentine quilt.

Hi Simone!
I love your blog - you sew such lovely and bright things! Your red apron is beautiful, and I have never seen a monochromatic project - you did beautiful work with all the greens.
