Saturday...

Spring day
and our garden is wearing a new "dress"...

Klosjes Day

16 new klosjes were made this week, and I can see the stack is growing slowly but surely,totalizing 116 up to now...

Life is beautiful

I really enjoy this project, too and stitched 3 new blocks this week. Pure bliss !



The "Wish Quilt"
Never too early starting to stitch for Christmas!
This project was designed by Bronwyn Hayes and published in
"Australian Homespun" magazines, last year.
So, here is the first (almost finished) stitchery of block Nr 1

Don't worry, Santa will get his feet and socks this weekend!

ENJOY YOUR SEWING !

  11. Nadine, your new blog header is gorgeous! Lovely klosjes and my Life is Beautiful pack came last Friday! I have now stitched two stitcheries, it was a lot harder than I thought but practice will help! Are you going to follow the pattern or alter it? I am thinking of sewing the 4 fabric blocks together and appliqueing the sitchery on...lots of ideas! Ann x

  20. Hoi Nadine,

    Wat heb je veel gedaan! Zoveel klosjes en 3 rondjes van de Life is Beautiful en dan nog een kerst-stitchery, wow..... goed bezig geweest hoor. Ik heb weinig quilterigs gedaan de afgelopen week. Ik was, samen met mijn DH, bij mijn dochter en schoonzoon, die hun tuin aan het veranderen zijn. DH moest helpen met de tuin, ik was er voor de kinderen (dochter moest werken)en ook om de hardwerkende mannen bij te staan met koffie, thee, eten en zo.
    De komende week hoop ik weer wat klosjes te maken.

    Groetjes,
    Inge
