My Christmas Elves by Gail Pan, part of block 2 (on the left) and block three. I am making this very nice stitchery quilt together with Melanie, Suzie and Diana! I always forget how much work the sewing together of the block is, especially when things go wrong. Block 3 isn't all according to the pattern, but I didn't feel like unpicking it for the third time.
I made this stitchery twice as a little present for friends. I used Spring Magic fabrics, which I think suits this stitchery perfectly. The pattern is by Ursula Schertz.
I didn't make many pictures of Heerlen this week. The weather was always wet when I went for my walk. This is a picture of a house built around 1930, I think. It is a home I would love to have. When I saw men working in it, I asked them how the house was on the inside. They said it was very authentic and very light inside. How I would have loved to go inside ...
