Machine Appliqué

M. and I did a workshop at "the Stitch Cottage" in Den Haag. We learnt how to use our sewing machines for appliqué. It was really nice to discover all the possibilities of our sewing machines and how very great "vliesofix"is. Now we are all ready to start working on our McKenna Ryan Christmas quilt. G.

Stoffenspektakel, brrrrrr

This was probably the coldest Stoffenspektakel ever. It was held in the expo-hall of the Floriade, so I expected it to be nice and warm.... well, far from it! I didn't linger as long as I would have liked to for the cold, but bought enough great summer fabrics to keep myself busy for some time. Everything in the picture was 5 euros the meter.(info for my mom!) G.

Two matching blouses

I use most of my evenings to finish a cross-stitch project for my baby-sister, but Friday nights the boys watch some talentshow or other, and because of the lack of talent in these shows, I usually hide upstairs behind my sewing machine and finally got this blouse for R. done. G.
