The beginning of April

Two weeks ago, I joined the Siggy Swap with Annelies at Quilts and Siggies. This is the siggy I made for Annelies.

From Annelies I received this siggy and ...

from Micki from Ireland, I received this one. It is machine embriodered. Very pretty!

Then a few weeks ago, when I mentioned that I was going to start Leanne' House in May, together with Jutta, Monika told me she would send me some materials I could add to it. Look at the lovely fabrics and threads she send me. Thank you so much, Monika! It all fits perfectly to what I have so far!
Monika is also making Leanne's House. She has already finished block 1-6!

And then finally, this week I received two patterns I had ordered at the beginning of December last year. It was really worth waiting for after all. The patterns are explained very well, with many many pictures. So I think I should manage to make them!

Then I received some wonderful news this week. My former 4th and 5th grade teacher will be visiting from California at the end of April. We've known each others for 40 (!) years now. The last time she was here was 10 years ago. Then we visited her 6 years ago with our children. This is so very special to me!

And remember, if something doesn't go the way you want it to go, "He that can have patience can have what he will." - Benjamin Franklin.

Off to do some ironing now. And my daughter just baked cookies, so I really have to try one (O:

Have a wonderful and happy week!

Love the "siggy" blocks...does "siggy" stand for "signature?" And what lovely fabrics for Leanne's House...I need to start on block 4! Such a long time to receive those patterns...is that typical for the mail to take so long?

Have a great day and enjoy those cookies!

Shari zei

Just stopping by to catch up. What lovely signature blocks. This is such a great project. Looking back over your posts you certainly have been a busy stitcher! Your teeny tiny squares quilt from Christine certainly is amazing!

Hope you have a good Easter with lots of sewing time!

I've never heard of siggy blocks before. They look very sweet.
The patterns look great. You must show what you make from them.
Ironing - yuk, I've got loads!

Gelukkig ben je daar weer. Had je gemist. Wat leuk dat je Leanne's House gaat maken. Is een erg leuke quilt. Om het met iemand samen te doen is een goed idee. Motiveer je elkaar. Grappig dat wonky house op je siggie.

Hoi Simone.

Jutta zei

Hallo liebe Simone,
oooooh, wie schön, ein neues Posting von dir. Dein Siggy-Blöckchen ist so wunderhübsch, du wirst sicherlich sehr viele Anfragen bekommen ..... und Monikas weiche Post passt perfekt, toll !!!
Auch deine neuen Anleitungen gefallen mir, in Deutschland sagt man, wenn etwas Schönes lange dauert: "Gut Ding will Weile haben"! So ist es dir mit den Anleitungen ergangen, aber nun hast du sie und kannst mit ihnen arbeiten.
Und ich freue mich mit dir, dass du bald Besuch bekommst, uiiii, und 10 Jahre habt ihr euch nicht gesehen ... ich wünsche euch eine herrliche Zeit !!!!
Ganz liebe Grüße an dich, deine Jutta ..... die auch soooo viel Bügelwäsche zu erledigen hätte ;-(
