Also for the ones wishing me a happy birthday it isn't till next month the 25th.
Tomorrow I hope to make a pic of summer snapperland for the sal and I think I will work on a dj block or on one of my machine made quilts. I know someone asked and yes I do my DJ by hand.

Quilting wise: I have finished block h7 and g7 from the big dj and c3 from the pillow dj which is totally done from fabrics out of my stash. I will show pics later this week.
Now about my vacation. It was very nice to be with my family. Only if there would have been snow. There really wasn't much. We could ski and do some cross country skiing, but you get up high in the hills to do it. Most of the days I have played and walked with my little nephew. On thursday my father and nephew got sick with the flu. We decided to go home friday instead of saturday and on our way home my DH and brother became sick. So I had to drive all the way home and my DH was sitting next to me getting sicker and sicker. I have to say than a 11 hour drive is a bit to much for one person. Just called home and now my mother has the flu. I am likely to not get it as I got the flushott, but you never know. I am keeping my fingers crossed.
Also on wednesday one of the colleagues of my mother that travelled with us had a little break in her scapula (I at least think it is called scapula in english), so she had to go see the doctor).
But in all I had a restfull vacation in which I did a lot of reading. I have finished Deja Death from Kathy Reichs and also a book from Elizabeth George, the last one I think with inspector lynley.
I have to go now to be with the patient. Talk to you all later.

Today I finished my house exchange, but can't show it till it is received. Next to start is my birthday exchange. Have decided for the chart, but stitching isn't a good option at the moment as I am still feeling horrible.
Also got my fabric in for my big mysterie. Still two fabrics to come but they are on back order.

I have finished 23 quilts, from which than more than half are big quilts. 2 DJ blocks, I had 4 sewing finishes and I have finished 34 cross stitch pieces. Which results in 63 finishes in the whole year.
Not yet finished are 4 cross stitched pieces, which are little red riding hood, nature's home afghan, colonial garden and animal shelf. And 2 quilts which are both big mysteries.
In the new year I will start nother big quilt which is the DJ and some small projects. I am sure I won;t have that much quilts finished this year as I stopped with the comfort quilts.
