What I have been working on this week


I have started working on my Stained QAL again. And just now, I discovered that I forgot a black strip in the blocks on the left. Well, this has happened to me with every block until now, so, I'm not surprised.

Ik ben weer met mijn Stained QAL begonnen en zojuist heb ik ontdekt, dat ik een zwarte strip in de blokken links vergeten ben. Dit is tot nu toe bij iedere blok gebeurd, dus ik kan me er al niet meer druk om maken.



During our monthly Quilting Bee, Diny (no blog) showed us how to make the blocks above. These are so relaxing to make in the evenings when watching TV.

Tijdens onze maandelijkse Quilting Bee heeft Diny (geen blog) ons laten zien hoe je de blokken hierboven maakt. Deze zijn heerlijk ontspannend te maken wanneer ik 's avonds wat tv kijk.



One of my nieces asked me to make a happy cover for her iPod. I was almost going to keep it myself, but a promiss is a promiss ...

Een van mijn nichtjes heeft me gevraagd een hoesje voor haar iPod te maken. Ik wilde het bijna zelf gebruiken, maar beloofd is beloofd ...



This came in the post this week. It has  some serious inspiration!
Dit kwam deze week met de post. Enorm inspirerend.

Bibi is gorgeous!

Love your ipod cover... I can see why it was hard to part with it. You have a lucky niece!

Are those "cathedral window" pieces that are so relaxing to make? Yours are so neat. What will you make out of them?

Hugs!

The Stained quilt looks so good! I'm done with cutting the 11 fabrics and will start with the sashings next.
The iPod cover really is a happy one.

Your work has just been gorgeous lately! It's been so nice to see - I've been in a sewing/health funk and it's so inspiring to see your work - so bright and happy. I love the solid colors you've been using and it's been great to see you step out of your comfort box. Thank you for making my days brighter and happier lately :)

Love your stained glass blocks. How big are they? I think I can figure the blocks out just by looking at yours. Cute iPod cover - lucky niece. What will you make with those cathedral window blocks? Do you join them with a whip stitch like English paper piecing? Bibi is so cute. She brought a smile to my face.

Carrie P. zei

oH, those little floral blocks are so cute. You need to show us how to do them!

Liz zei

Your Bibi is soooooo adorable. Love the stained glass look, the tiny black strips look challenging. So do those tiny quilting bee blocks. I don't think I would find them relaxing!!!!!!!! You did a lovely job on them they look great.
Enjoy your book it looks interesting.

Wat wordt dat een mooi quiltje Simone. Prachtig blauwe stofjes. En dat zwarte stripje missen we niet hoor. Ik ben wel verbaasd dat jij zoveel blauw gebruikt. Toeval of gekregen?
Leuke I-pod cover. Daar word je nichtje vast heel vrolijk van.

Tracy zei

Just LOVE the stained glass project you're working on Simone. The iPod cover is very sweet--and very tempting to keep, yes. ;o) So lovely to see sweet Bibi. Happy Weekend, my friend ((HUGS))

Leanne zei

I am sure your niece will love her new iPod cover. At least bibi stands still for a photo, my 2 are always jumping around especially if they think it is walk time.
