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.

Here is the bag I was making for a few weeks now. Colors aren't accurate at all, they are a lot brighter is real life.
This past two days I have been sewing up a storm. I have finished up the Halloween exchange, stitching pocket exchange, Harvest time exchange, this bag and one and a half shirt. Did I do well or not. I decided I wanted to have one shirt and a pair of pants finished in two weeks for the quilting retreat, I love going away with some new cloths. Shirt will surely be finished monday night, pants will be a bit harder as they are more difficult than I am used too. They have a zipper and some other difficult stuff. Hope to draw the pattern tonight and cut it before monday.
Next weekend is the first weekend I have nothing planned and I am looking forward to that a lot. That weekend after I will be gone all weekend, so I will need a bit of rest for sure. Hope to make some blocks for the lotery at the quilting retreat the next days too.
Tomorrow I am off to my friend Jacqueline who has her birthday monday and my DH will go to the Sauna which is very close to her home and will spend the day there.
