Cupcakes, a lovely Spring Fling Round Robin Quilt and something new

I needed something new to do. Somehow fabrics don't inspire me at the moment. So I went to the knitting shop and bought myself some wool, which I was planning to do for a long time. The woman was so kind to let me borrow the book, since it is no longer for sale. Next week I will buy some other colors to these two. I am going to keep it in the pink range. Maybe some purple.

Lyn told me she had send me a parcel. It arrived this week. Look at all the loveliness she send me. So many lovely cupcakes to admire and to work with (fabrics, buttons and a pincushion, shopping booklet). The mug is so pretty and so my color. I haven't dared using it yet, afraid something might happen to it.
Thank you my sweet dear Lyn, for these lovely presents. You spoil me way too much!

And I finally made the Card Wallet, designed by Lisa at A Spoon Full of Sugar. Lisa and her daughter Sarah make lovely projects and have wonderful ideas! Please go have a look at her blog. It will really inspire you!

The inside is a bit crooked. I once again learned to read the directions before starting. Not my strong side ...

And look at the lovely quilt that came back home this week. I made the middle block and three lovely quilters made the two borders and finished the quilt. I did the same with three other flimsies. Thank you Margaret, for organizing this! It was very challenging to work on this swap!

Have a lovely weekend and a creative and happy week!

Wat grappig dat jij ook geen handleidng of werkbeschrijving leest voordat je begint. Ik doe dat ook nooit en soms gaat er wel eens iets mis. Maar het etuitje is toch heel mooi geworden. Het quiltje ziet er erg leuk uit. Het is altijd even afwachten wat het eindresultaat is, maar het is heel geslaagd.

Hi Simone! :-)

What beautiful gifts Lyn sent you! And you said it yourself through the quote you chose: "The world is what you are" So yes - you deserve to be spoiled! :-)

Lyn and I must live fairly close because one of the stores she visited "The Patchwork Teahouse" isn't that far away from me! It's a lovely shop, with a cafe and lots of eye candy on display.

Your quilt is gorgeous, what a fantastic idea to work as part of a group.

Wishing you a lovely weekend Simone! If the world is what you are... then I'm sure your world is beautiful!

Hugs sweetie!

What a lovely parcel of goodies. You are doing some great crochet. I can only do DC stitch still. I just haven't been able to tear myself away from my current project to learn more.

What a lovely idea for the making of a quilt. It's come out beautifully.

Lieve Simone van harte gefeliciteerd met je verjaardag. Je etuitje is echt te gek, ik ga hem snel eens proberen. Het pakketje wat je van Lynn hebt gekregen is geweldig. Wat een leuk stof en hebbedingetjes ( ik ben verliefd op cupcakes). En die gezamelijke quilt is erg mooi geworden. Wat betreft het haken, erg leuk, maar verveelde je je soms (hihi)

Anoniem zei

so many lovely things Simone I love your crochet, I am still trying to learn! Happy belated birthday too sounds like a happy day
