I had a great weekend
I don;t know yet how long this post will be as I came sick home from the quiltingweekend, but we had loads of fun. Yesterday I couldn;t sit up for very long, but today is a little better.
First I want to show you what I have done on Nature's home afghan before the weekend. I will go working probaly on it again this month, but it depends on how the rest will go. Than here also my progress on April stamp-it. I had to stop as I am out of GAST-cidermill brown that I have to use for the basket. But as far as I know at the moment it is the only thing I need at the moment and paying postal costs for only that one skien is a bit to much. So it will have to wait for a next order.
Yesterday when I was sitting up I did some stitches on "Victoria city sampler. Not much as I had problems with the 32ct fabric, but it is a little bit of progress and I like it so far a lot.
Friday early in the afternoon I went to Annelies to pic her up at her home and than we drove with a very fully packed car to the wuilting weekend. We arrived there even before 4 in the afternoon as traffic wasn't a problem at all. Than we looked at where we would sleep and it were nice beds. We were in a room wit 5 people. and we had to share one shower with 17 people, so you can figure out mornings were very hectic in that bathroom.
We started in the chickenroom, but as it was getting to crowded and some had to go to the ducklings room we volunteerd to go there. Lucky for us we weren't with that many in that room (around 20 woman) and we had the quilting store there the whole weekend. A lot of woman gave me fabrics for the charityquilts and I am sure going to use them all in the next months/years.
On friday and saturdaymorning I worked on my mysteriequilt which is going to be a beauty, will post pics of that one later as I didn't take any pics yet.
On Saturday after lunch I started my Poetry in motion quilt and sunday before lunch the top was finished. It is with all ohio-stars and the colors are all so nice and lovely. First I would make it for a friend, but now I think I will keep it for myself.
Also I am going to make my mother and me a bag from a workshop they gave at the quiltingweekend. I am sure she will love it. Just have to decide if she will get the red/black one or the yellow/green one.
Now I have to go and go and lay down a bit as my head is exploding.
