Here they are:
Finish the big star mysterie "Lentekriebels" at least the top, the quilting will take some time as it is very very big.
Finish Journey of a quilter top or also quilt.
Finish Cat's Paw quilt top or also quilt
Work on my other quilt wips.
Doing some quilty exchanges like the fourseasons ones and maybe something like the secret santa exchange.

Here is Kathy's Round Robin. I have stitched Maryse's July house for the beach theme, added a few birds and changed the width a bit of the whole design. The lighthouse was done by Michelle and for the rest there is nothing on this Round Robin yet.
Now I decided to start the next block of NHA as I really want to have it finished in 2008. I only have 9 blocks to do and 4 of them are 3 so easy to do.
Goals for 2008:
1. Enjoying some more exchanges, but less than 2007.
2. Stay on track with the quilting and also with the stitching Round Robin
3. Finish NHA
4. I wanted to write now Finish Little red riding hood, but well that seems a bit to much, but I want to finish 20 pages, which comes to 1 page per two weeks. Than there are in the end only 20 pages left to do, so it will be surly finished in 2009. By the way I have choosen the big print of the chart as that is a bit easier to do.
5. Maybe when I have time left stitch some things for myself.

Thanks all for the well wishes.
I am stitching a bit on LRRH, but can't do it long. Kathy's RR is also calling my name, but first I want to have the curtain part on LRRH finished as the clock is on two pages I will stitch on both pages at the same time. Hope to upload a pic this weekend.

About the Titel of this post. Santa is for the christmas ornament exchange I received today from Terry. I love the ornament she made me and all the goodies she added. Sorry for the not so good pic, but finding normal light is hard when you go to work when it is still dark and come back when it is dark again and I always want to show the exchanges as soon as they hit my doorstep.
Also heard that Cathy has received my Rabbit's big day exchange on SBEBB. I have stitch ed some parts of spot of spring of Drawn Thread and finished it into a tin. I love how it came out.
Now for the question. I need some tins, but can't find them here. So if anyone is willing to send me some (empty) altoids tins. I will pay postage or make you something beautifull, just what you want.
Vandaag de ornament exchange ontvangen van Terry. Ze heeft erg leuke dingen toegevoegd. Ben weer helemaal happy. Verder is ook mijn rabbit's big day exchange aangekomen.

Don't know for sure which chart it was from LHN, but I know I received t as a rak a few months ago and just had to stitch it. Fabrics are from the stash.
Am stitching like crazy on LRRH I want to get those curtains finished. I hope the RR from Kathy will arrive soon as than I can stitch something else for awhile.

I am still having the give away it will run till saturday and here you can see what I will make. The fabrics at the bottom will be used to make someone a victorian sewing box. Hope the person will like it. The top fabbies will become a victorian sewing box and some other things for someone special.

Than finally a colored pic of my Harvest time exchange I received. I had done something wrong, that is why the black and white came.
These fabbies I bought last week for some quilts of Lori Smith I am going to make. Haven't choosen yet which ones I will be making of those 18 quilts. Pics hopefully will be soon to see of a top.
Here the quilt of my aunt folded on the backing fabric and with the quiltthread I am going to use. I will use a cotton batting from Hobbs for it.

Quiltingwise I have bought backing fabric for the quilt for my aunt. Probaly Thursday I will get batting for it at least when there is no rain. The shop where I have my sewingclasses is also a quilting store and they had some gorgeous colored batting a bit bordeaux/aubergine colored. I will make a pic later this week. Hope to start the quilting this weekend.
Stitchingwise: I am filling up a space on a neighborhood round robin and am busy to prepare my own fabric. I am stitching februari house from her free charts and I want the rest to stitch also one of her monthly houses. They may choose which one. I stitch febrauari, because it is my birthdaymonth and they can do that too or choose the month they are stitching on it. I am now deciding what I want to be stitched instead of the month, there name or something else.

Sorry I have been MIA for the last week, but I have been sick with a nasty cold. Since friday I am getting better. Here is what I have done this past week and weekend.
I have been doing a bit of stitching on Little red riding hood. This is page 13.
I have finished the quilt top for my Aunt, now I have to go and think how to quilt it. It is a broken brick pattern. Any good ideas how to quilt it, please let me know. I will be quilting it by machine.
And I received a beautifull Harvest time exchange from Chris, but somehow I only get it black and white. Sorry for that as the colors are gorgeous.
Well this is all for now.

Yesterday I had my applique workshop and we worked now on the real thing. I am making a hummingbird at a flower and we had to work on the wing. Hope to get both wings ready before the next lesson thursday. Will show a pic later. Am also working on Little red riding hood and it is going the right way with the next page I think only 1/4 more to go and than another page is finished.

I also brought with me Susans Round Robin and after a bit of help from the other ladies I decided to stay with my first plan and add triangles with tulips to it. The green fabric comes from the shop that was present and suited it very well. I think it compliments Susans middle block and Connies triangles very well. Now it can go on it's road to Liz.
That is all I have done this weekend. Now I have to start thinking about the next round robin which is Connies. I have to do two rounds on this one. First put it off point and than add a pieced border. That pieced border is an easy one, but what to do for the triangles. All good ideas are welcome.

Also I received a beautifull RR yesterday, but as blogger decided that he doesn;t want me to upload pics that pic will have to wait. Tomorrow I have to work a few hours longer and than as soon as I come home I have to pack my bags, go to appliqueworkshop and get some much needed sleep to get up again early and leave for Marion around 7 am and hope to arrive in Poperingen at the quiltingbee around 12 am. I won't be back till sindaynight late, so don;t expect a message till tuesday.

I will probaly be a bit quiet till a week from now as next weekend I will be on retreat and I have to get packed up and buy/make a gift and I also have my applique workshop thursday and off course my sewing class monday. Tomorrow I will pack up the quilty things I want to take with me. I am still debating on that. Probaly the quilt from the workshop at atelier Bep, my DJ, the Cat's Paw Bom and maybe a mysterie. The atelier Bep quilt and the Cat's Paw Bom won;t take that much space, but the mysterie and the DJ will do, so still have to debate a bit. I want to pack some handwork and some machine stuff. Hope some exchanges will arrive before I leave as than I will have something to show.

But now what was in the package that arrived at my doorstep. This beautifull fall quilt from Samantha . I love the colors she used a lot. It will go on my table this fall. I just put it there already :-)
Than she included some goodies and the pattern Flossies is calling my name very loudly. Will have to look into it to see if I am skilled enough to make it.Also a week ago the PIF gift from Shelina, but as it was a busy few weeks I didn't have sooner time to show a pic.
I think this week I will work on the Cat's Paw BOM from quilthuis lieselotje The first part isn't big and the next part I can pick up next week. Also I want to work on one of the mysteries as they really have to get finished.
Stitching wise I am working on my LHN exchange.
