And the great news my DH got the job and he will start there the 1st of november. Only not so nice thing is that we won't drive together to work anymore as he goes the other way. When he is totally settled in he also has to work on saturdays one time per 3 weeks, but than he has the monday off and on all his other jobs he didn't have that. Minor thing is that I always have fridays off and never mondays.
Tonight my DH has a final jobinterview at another place. So please cross your fingers.

Here is the finished quilt. I didn't do what I wanted to do and did something someone else recommended. I like it very much and also all my colleagues like it very much. Friday we will make a visit and give it to the new mother. I keep it short as my shoulder hurts big time and I have to go to my sewing class in a minute. I am very behind in my blogreading, hope to get up to date again in the next week.

It is a scrappy stashquilt and I like how it turned out. In reall life the colors look a bit softer I think.It is again a pattern from Lori Smith, like also the tulip one and the fall one. I changed this one. Official where now the dots are should have been Sunbonnet sue, but I didn;t feel up to that applique, so I decided to do Dots and well they are really round too which is shocking to me as I am very good in getting other forms than I wanted to. This will go in the mail to a friend of mine. Hope she will ike it.
I started this one friday by cutting all the pieces for back and front. Yesterday I did do all the piecing and applique (applique again done by hand) and today I did do the quilting and binding. Also went to a quiltexhibition in the church of Oudendijk and met someone whose blog I am already reading for a few months now, but didn't know she lived so close, lol well where was my head. It was a nice exhibition with some beautifull quilts of that bee. Margreet has put pics of the quilt on her blog. So you can see some pics there.
