Stitcheries, Calendar quilt challenge 2009 and Lyn's Silent Auction

This week I finished two of my stitchery BOMs! They are so much fun to make. For the Verandah View, instead of a bluebird, I made a black bird, since we don't have bluebirds here in the Netherlands and it would look a bit strange to me. Thank you Gail and Cheryl for these lovely free BOMs!
If you want another free BOM, 'short and sweet', see the Wonky Houses on Jenny's blog.

Then on Sunday I finally caught up with my calendar challenge. That was Sunday. Now I'm behind again. If you look closely on the strip of February 14, you will see a little heart ribbon which came along with my Sassy Flirty Apron Swap.

At the end of this month, I will start a challenge with my daughter, mother, 4 sisters, sister in law and niece: Anni Dawn's The Twelve Days of Christmas. This will definitely be a challenge, since only Laura, my daughter has done some stitching before.

Then please go over to
Lyn's blog. She's having a Silent Auction for the Bushfire Appeal, a lovely 1930's Package.

And here some more snow bells for you, to remind us that spring will soon be here (O:

I'll be gone for several days after today, escaping Carnival, that is celebrated elaborately in this part of the country. Have a lovely weekend and a happy week!

Goede avond, lieve Simone,
oooh, auch du warst fleißig, deine Stickereien gefallen mir sehr !!!!
Für deinen calendar challenge werde ich dir ein paar Streifen zusenden, dann ist auch von mir "ein Stückchen" eingenäht.
Der Familien-challenge klingt toll, auf das Ergebnis bin ich sehr, sehr gespannt .... ein tolles Muster!
Deine Schneeglöckchen sind ja schon fast "groß", beneidenswert, hier ist noch tiefer Winter.
Een gezellige avond, heel veel liefs, Jutta

Thank you for your greeting on my birthday! Your BOM stitcheries are nice! How smart to make a black bird, I should have done too as we don't have blue birds either. Lovely snow bells - here we only have snow :) Many years since we had so much snow. I hope your Carneval celebration is fun!

Wish I could get away from Mardi Gras as you're getting away from Carnival! But since I can't, I'm going to spend the time at home where I don't have to be at the parades with all the crazies!

Hi Simone,
Love the blackbird. I had no idea there were no bluebirds in the Netherlands! They are my second favorite, behind the Western Meadowlark.
Wishing you well,
