Another Christmas Wish Stitchery finish. And as I said before it is fun to make it for the second time (O:
A few weeks ago I won this beautiful appliqué quilt at lovely Shari's Mumsyblossom's World. She got it at U-Chus and thought it was time to 'share the love'. I was so happy when I saw this, since it fits perfectly in my working room, where I work with lower school children. The colors are even more beautiful in real! This is a close up:
This is the whole quilt:
Thank you so much Shari, for letting me win this beautiful quilt!!!
Ah, and this week I went to my first Quilting Bee ever. It was organized by dear Marie-Jozé at Handmade by Mai, who did a wonderful preparation for the morning! Look at the gorgeous little pin cushion we got to make. And I was even able to start a second one in a different version. Marie-Jozé asked her son to drink lots and lots of milk over the past few weeks, so that we would have enough caps to make these gorgeous pin cushions. Thank you, Marie-Jozé for this wonderful morning and thank you too Mathilda, for 'lending' us the space. I look forward to next month!
It was also great to finally meet Marie-Jozé after 10 months of blogging and emailing. It was about time, since we do not live too far apart from each others and Marie-Jozé works only about 10 minutes away from where I live. Lucky I get to see her more frequently now!And here are 18 fat quarters of the Santa Town range. I will be making a quilt for Laura. I will first have to work out the blocks according to this pattern and then I can finally start.
