Finally done (O:

Last week I finally finished my droomdekentje (charity quilt). I had had the top finished for quite a while, but somehow didn't feel like getting those layers together and machine quilt it (sound familiar?) I must say, it went quite fast and I even enjoyed the machine quilting. I quilted it in diagonal lines.



Then I want to have my stitchery BOMs finished before the end of the month. Gail Pan's was so much fun to make again! And I changed the Verandah View block a bit.


I also finished mini block 5 of Leanne's House and will put the whole block together today. So Jutta, off to block 2 (O: It is so much more fun to do this together with Jutta, giving each other advise and just knowing that someone is making it together with you, really wants you to work on it. Go over to Jutta's blog and see how she finished her block 5. Then you can also see what she did with her gorgeous strawberry cross stitch!



Over the past two weeks I received these siggies. These are from the Netherlands and Belgium.




I would like to share some flowers that are at their best at the moment with the beautiful weather we have.


This plant blooms only once in two years, I think, because last year it only showed its leaves.



And this is definitely my favorite flower! It has never had so many rose buds. My neighbors are very lucky too, because many of the roses grow their way (O:




And a quote that I really enjoyed reading this week and is so true:


Emotions fuel memories. Memories fuel emotions. Choose what you want to remember each moment. It’s a quick and powerful way to shift perspective and can change everything.

- Kim Allen




Take care!

Hi Simone,
wunderschön ist er geworden, dein Miniblock 5 .... aber jetzt müssen wir noch alles zusammennähen und dann zeigen, sonst dürfen wir nicht weiternähen ;-)
Deine Naturaufnahmen machen richtig gute Laune. Den Fingerhut habe ich auch, nachdem er abgeblüht ist, schüttle ich die Rispen, damit die Samen herausfallen und harke sie ganz leicht ein, im nächsten Jahr habe ich dann ganz neue !!!!!
Und dein Charity Quilt, die gestickten Blöckchen und auch deine neuen Siggies, alles ist superklasse !!!!
Viele liebe Grüße und ein wenig gute Laune schickt dir deine Jutta

Hard gewerkt Simone! Je blokjes zien er zo mooi uit. Het droomdekentje is leuk geworden. Viel het quilten toch een beetje mee?
Toevllig net ook een foto van onze pioenen gemaakt om op mijn blog te zetten. Ze bloeien hier elke jaar. Misschien had de jouw even een rustpauze ingelast net als onze rododendron ;>)

You have been busy stitching. There is no way that a rose could be blooming now here in Iceland.

Je hebt weer heel veel gedaan Simone !

Handmade by Mai zei

Je droomquilt is erg mooi geworden. Je BOM's zien er weer erg mooi uit, wat heb je veranderd bij de Verandah vieuws? Vind jij het ook steeds moeilijker om voor de "deadline"de BOM's klaar te hebben? En je bloemen zijn wel erg mooi.

Terry zei

Hallo Simone,
du zeigst wieder laueter schöne Dinge. Eine wohltat für die Augen.

Und zu zweit an einem Projekt arbeiten, wie LH, hat auch mir soviel Spaß gemacht. Dadurch habe ich in Monika eine richtig gute Freundin gefunden. Und obwohl wir uns noch nie persönlich getroffen haben, wird telefoniert bis die Leitung glüht :-))

What is the name of the flower with the "bells". I love it. Sweet stitching. My favorite was the little chickens in the background of the one pic. Sweet. Your charity quilt turned out lovely.
