as I won't be sewing today I just thought about letting you all see it already. Hope to sew again tomorrow.
I am now busy stitching on the house exchange as the chart for that one arrived at my doorstep yesterday. It will look great when finished I am sure.
Last night was a stormy night here in the Netherlands we even got a weather warning and it could be that tonight we will be having another weather warning as it can be stormy too. Last night it was carla and tonight we will be having Lotte as they have called the stormfronts. Carla has blown even of a balcony in Den Haag and blew down some trees here and there.
Yesterday we decided to do a summer snapperland sal. I will be doing it together with two girls from a yahoo group and we will be stitching on it on tuesdays.
Now I hope you will all be having a nice new years eve.

Also today I finished the other 3 blocks of the mysterie "3 x 3 = 9" quilt. For the ones asking. This is not an online mysterie, but from a shop and I have a meeting once a month. Both blocks are made 4 times. So part 1 is now finished, on to part 2 tomorrow.
Today I first did my task for today which was cleaning the bedroom and so now I can start doing my hobbies. I already have found a chart for the needlework smalls exchange and redwork exchange. I already ordered something for the house exchange and also found something for the biscornu exchange.
So now it is time to do first a bit of sewing and than get winter snapperland finished.

The background is 6 paperpierced christmastrees and the reindeers are appliqued on it. Aren't they cute.
Now she is just busy quilting as she has her big quilt to quilt for their bed and also a rosesquilt.
I haven't done much just have been working a bit on winter snapperland. Today I will be surely go to read a lot and maybe a bit of stitching. I hope after a long bath I can relax better, I just feel stressed.
Some asked what the problem was with the minkeefabric, well it is very slippery.

I just love how it turns out. Still a lot to do, but I am not really in a stitching mood at the moment and it is not like the past 12 weeks that I had to sit downstairs stitching as my DH was learning for his study upstairs. I hope this weekend will be a stitching weekend. Also I want to make preparations to finish the Just Nan trickortreat box as I want to finish that in to a box between christmas and new year and I still have to finish some needlerolls, put the beads on pine needleroll and tomorrow I hope to buy the last 2 birthdaygifts.

Bye for now, from a frustrated Judith

What I will be making from these fabrics, no idea, but I am thinking of a pillow or maybe they will be used in an exchange piece.
Also I signed up for a workshop for the victorian sewing box in the end of March. Looking forward to that. Now it is done with speding money as also the brakes on the car did cost a little more money than predicted.

I just finished the quilting on the autumn harvest tonight and really love the look. I haven't done the border after all. Now I still have to do the binding, I hope to do that this weekend after I finish the babyquilt for my neighbor as her daughter was born friday and the quilt isn't quilted yet. So I have to get busy on that one,

Someone asked if Sinterklaas is the same as St. Nicolas day and yes that is. The man has a different name in all countries that have it.
Also there was asked if the treehouse afghan is cross stitch, yes it is and it is 30 squares and I have now done 21 so far. I will make a pic of the whole thing when I have stitched the next block.
Than today I started quilting the autumn harvest quilt a bit each time. I am doing it with an overall heartpattern and I have to say I like it a lot as my old machine didn;t sew very good. I decided to make it overall as than you don't look at the patching that much at least I hope so. I have still half of the middle to do and than on the borders I will also do hearts, but in a different way. I am still loving this quilt very much and also love working with my new accessories.
Also a pic of a comfortquilt for which I stitched a square which is the left square in the third row. I love it how Annelies finished it and I am sure Bert will like it. This is the last Comfort quilt I have done something for and I am still happy I decided to quit.
Now I am going to quilt some more and after that some more stitching on winter snapperland.

Yesterday I also sandwiched the autumn quilt, which I hope to quilt in the coming months, one bit at a time.

Also I finished the stitching on a little surprise gift for someone.
Than today I will start the stitching for the ornament exchange on SBEBB, I finally found the right ornament and it looks not so intrique as my stocking stuffer exchange looked and it is from a designer I haven't stitched from yet.
So you all now I am very busy, just not noticeable.
Edited later this day: I just finished the ornament exchange too and it looks really great.
You are The Moon
Hope, expectation, Bright promises.
The Moon is a card of magic and mystery - when prominent you know that nothing is as it seems, particularly when it concerns relationships. All logic is thrown out the window.
The Moon is all about visions and illusions, madness, genius and poetry. This is a card that has to do with sleep, and so with both dreams and nightmares. It is a scary card in that it warns that there might be hidden enemies, tricks and falsehoods. But it should also be remembered that this is a card of great creativity, of powerful magic, primal feelings and intuition. You may be going through a time of emotional and mental trial; if you have any past mental problems, you must be vigilant in taking your medication but avoid drugs or alcohol, as abuse of either will cause them irreparable damage. This time however, can also result in great creativity, psychic powers, visions and insight. You can and should trust your intuition.
What Tarot Card are You?
Take the Test to Find Out.

I just finished another snowman. I had a workshop for making it last year around this time and I just wanted to make some more, but time was to little to make them and now I find lots of time due to stopping troostquilts.
Maybe it will be a gift for someone, maybe I will keep it myself. When it is gift, someone will find it on her/his doorstep soon. I just have to draw the face. I did it totally by sewing machine also making the button holes and attaching the buttons. Here is the first one I made. I have still lots of fabric to make some more and I think I will make them as the are easy and cute to make.
Now I have to go downstairs again to get moving on my stitching as I am making something for a friend that has to be finished soon.
