Update quilt L'etoile


I love this quilt ... and I love to work on it... it is quilt you make in a day... not even in a year, but it makes me happy... I make this quilt for the memory of my father.....


I am very happy with the new leaves and will make a pictures from the all the leaves together..... but I really like the one on top.... didn't think so when making but it turned out quit nice......


It the middle of this nice quilt is a star.... obviously... the name of the quilt l'etoile a quilt of Nathalie Meance !! So i am now not only starting on the borders , because it is with embroidery but i am finally starting on the inside as well...... have a lovely week lots of quilting fun !!!

Small projects


When I am travelling or when I am meeting friends, I like to have a small project... I take this with me.... inside .....


I am making a little project of a pattern from a miniquilt of I, i already had the pattern for more then a year (or perhaps even 2) but it is nice and small ....


and this time i am making a little small quilt, I also love embroidery, so my projects can also be an embroidery piece or some thing to knit.


Beautiful weather again for a nice walk under the trees.


This is what I made for M, for her wedding, a mistletoe in heart shape... I found that pattern long long time ago, and sever it for a good day, this summer I started on it, because her wedding was in december....

Crochet, quilt and valentine


At attic24 I saw this beautiful poncho for the first time.... but I couldn't find the pattern... now I know it was still not on the market in the netherlands...


But now in "haken enxo" it was so I run to the wool shop to get started immediately... and this is the result so far... it was a little bit late yesterday so the picture is not to clear i will make an other one soon...


 With valentine's day we went to a small cafe and had a delicious cafe a vitello tone to on bread and some  'yammie' brownies with caramel, such a lovely threat



at the moment we have some beautiful cold, (but not to cold)  winter weather with a heavenly blue sky....... so nice for a walk outside and enjoying a nice warm cup of coffee after ...


 But of course I need to be quilting as well... I almost finished the top of my youngest... pictures coming soon, but of course I want to make a nice new quilt for my oldest as well... some bright colours mammie she asked... well her are a few of the fabrics i choose...

De sampler .....


De laatste dag open, gelukkig gaat de Sampler door, maar toch even afscheid nemen van een   tijdperk !!! Want wat een heerlijke tijd hebben we hier gehad


at hebben we veel met elkaar mee gemaakt en ontzettend veel gemaakt, geleerd en gelachen.


Vriendschappen zijn gesloten en zelfs nieuwe liefdes begonnen...


Dus ook de laatste dag waren wij van de partij en namen nog een partij stofjes mee, want ja stof heb je nooit genoeg.....


Knapzakjes die we voor iedereen hebben gemaakt...




Mijn kleinste dochter is ook super gek op bakken, een heerlijke appeltaart had ze gebakken... en vandaag al weer iets lekker maar die volgt volgende keer op mijn blog... een echt bak talent....



Maleficent, super leuek film vond het een aanrader, echt heel leuk om te zien met de hele familie ....
