A few weeks ago, I received an invitation for a "baby shower" for the new baby of my friend from uni. I haven't seen her for quite some time, so I wanted to go. But then the rest of the family had other engagements and I can't make it. I felt so guilty, I cross-stitched this bib for the baby, that has the name of one of our favourite characters in "McLeods' Daughters". G.

Purple Playdress

Little Miss T. only wanted to be in the picture if her purple balloon was photographed too. No problem at all... The Bizzkids fabric was a bit expensive, but the pattern so easy, that it cost me only a few days to make this one. I'm glad I left off the pockets and turned them into applique harts, it looks great this way. G.

Mystery Quilt 2008

I also joined a Mystery Quilt... feels like joining the marines... feels like being drafted. I love the colours and also the blocks for the first five months of the year. You can find the first months here G. promised to start her Patchwork Party quilt... couple of blocks each month. What about starting 1 June??


Japanese Inspiration

I found a lot of fabrics for my Japanese inspired quilt. I set out to find light colours... and I can safely say I succeeded. Top photo shows the fabrics I bought today... the next photo shows all fabrics that made the final cut. M.

Veldhoven - European Quilt Championships... Our Very First

Obviously we did not enter a quilt... Although G.'s were deemed beautiful and prize worthy. Not a lot of quilts we liked this time.
