Blocks, Schnibbles, Bracelet and Leanne's House pattern

I finished two more blocks for my Web Sampler Celebration 4 quilt. The more I make, the more fun it gets (O: I think I have 'only' six or seven more to go.

This is the block I made for Terry's quilt. The theme is 'love' and 'shabby'. I tried to make it look shabby in the borders. Can you figure it out? If you want to see more blocks other lovely quilters made, please go here.

A few weeks ago I joined 'A year of Schnibbles'. I was a bit late, but Sherri and Sinta were so kind to still let me join the fun. This is the 'Cindy Lou Who' Schnibble, by Rosie's Quilt. It is the second pattern. For this quilt I am using the range by Darlene Zimmerman for Robert Kaufman, Clothline Club: Girlfriends and Girlfriends. The fabrics are so much fun to work with.

When I looked at the pattern, I thought it would be a quick one. No way. Lots of cutting and sewing corners. I hope to get the top finished tommorow. It is lots of fun to make!

Here is my next stitchery for the Christmas Wish stitchery quilt. Not a very sharp picture, but I guess most of you know what it looks like. It is lots of fun to make this together with Melanie, Karen and Lyn. Very motivating. I think I might have stopped, if I weren't doing this together with them.

And look what lovely Lyn at Bluebird Quilts send me!!! She told me she was having classes from Leanne Beasley, Rosalie Quinlan and Melly and I told her how I wished I could be there. If you look closely, you can see that Leanne signed it and on the inside Rosalie and Melly signed it! Isn't that just wonderful (O: I told Lyn that when she comes to the Netherlands next year, she will have to sign it too, since she is making and selling her own designs too! Please have a look here.

Thank you so much, Lyn! You are such a darling, to think of me like this.

Please go over to Lyn and send her a comment. She was in the hospital last week with health problems. Luckily she is back home again. More tests will be done next week.

And look what one of my students gave me last week. His mother makes and sells beautiful jewelry. I asked 'my student' to make me a pink bracelet. Now isn't this just gorgeous!!! And when the heart and label touch each other, it makes a wonderful sound.

Wat heb je weer ontzettend veel gedaan Simone. Prachtige blokken! Ik ben echt helemaal weg van die blokken. De Schibbles is ook heel leuk. En dat armbandje: wat een snoepie. Vind het helemaal bij jou passen. Ben benieuwd wat je deze week weer allemaal gaat doen.

I love your bracelet - it's so cute. The student and the mother must think a lot of you.
I also like the fabrics you are using in your Web Sampler Celebration.

It looks as if you've been making some very complicated blocks this week - and the corners all match and you haven't lost any of your corners. Very impressive.
