Really needed a quilting post by now


Yes it was time for a quilting post. Sorry I have been quiet a few days, but boy life was very busy. Tuesday I had a party as my colleague was getting married and we were invited. I was very late at home and had to work the next day, so night was short and I was very tired. I am lot of e-mails behind on all my groups and also am a lot behind on blogreading. Hope to read a lot sunday as I will be leaving for the Gelderse championships for horseriding again in half an hour and I will be gone till saturdaynight late. I will sleep at my parents tonight and tomorrow my DH is coming by bike to the championships which is a ride of 96 km (sorry am to lazy to calculate the miles) and 26 km will be over the dike from Enkhuizen to Lelystad which is through the lower part of the big water in the Netherlands when you look at a map of the Netherlands (sorry also to lazy to find a pic of a map of the Netherlands). Than we will put the bike on the car and will drive home together. My parents and me and the rest he knows there will e so proud of him. LOL I won't do it in this lifetime, it is me to far.

The pic is of the first comfortquilt I made in 2005. It was for a woman who loved country and western.
This week I also signed up for a quilt round robin, my first. I have done a stitched round robin before, but now I am going to do a round robin with quilting, we will have 6 rounds (1 round per 2 months, so it will come back if I am counting right somewhere around this time next year. 15 september our middle block has to be by the first person. I already decided what to do, just have to find time to make it. Looks like I will be busy the coming two months with exchanges. My what's the buzz exchange is finished for the stitching. Just have to fin time to go to the LQS to get some nice fabrics to finish it. Than I will go and stitch the gratefull hearts exchange, and so on.
