Katrina's RR finished!!

I just put in the last stitch on Katrina her RR. I loved stitching it very much. She wanted simple houses and lots of trees and flowers. I hope she likes what I did. I stitched The house and a few trees and bushes and flowers from Florentine from Maryse and also some trees from Springtime also from Maryse. and below you can see how it looks now.

Since tuesday I am stitching like crazy on the Round Robin for Katrina, but time was very limited. The house is finished now, the grass too, I finished a lot of flowers and am now busy planting a lot of trees as she wanted them in there. Hope to show the finished pic tomorrow so it can go on it's way to Lauren.
Today my whole family comes for diner. I have all the groceries in the house. I will make roasted Lamb with fresh herbs.
The pic is Liz Turner Diehls family garden. LTD are a hell to stitch, don't know why, but I never really enjoy sticthing them. This was already finished some years ago with a SAL. Problem was that there are lots of mistakes in her patterns.
Now I will have to go and do the last cleaning of the house before family arrives.

crazyexchange received and help needed

I received this beautifull exchange from Nic. I had some time needed to figure out where it was for as I have some exchanges running. But well that coin fell on it's place after all. There was some more floss in it, but that was downstairs.
I already know what to make her as a returngift. Now just finish the other things that need finishing and than make this returngift.
Yesterday also heard that the Round Robin from Katrina is finally in the mail from Toni, so I hope it arrives soon, so I can stitch a lovely house on it that I already have choosen.

Now about the Help part. Well I am in the BOM programm for Journey of a quilter, but a package got lost and I can;t get in contact with the shop. Now I was send 2 blocks after all, but now she is not responding on my e-mails for the las two blocks. Now I know a lot of quilters out there are making this quilt. So I hope I can maybe do a trde for block 3 and 5 with one of you. So it's Leanne's house Journey of a quilter BOM and I am missing block 3 and 5. Hope anyone out there can help me.

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.

Give away

Well I was so relieved when I just looked at our bankacount. Finaly the paycheck that was due the 20th of october has been payed by John his old boss.
He like his new job a lot.

Due to our anniversary thursday I have a little give away. Don't know what it will be yet, maybe a little bright colored dollquilt or something stitched and finished or maybe some fabrics (stitching or quilting). If anyone wants to take part. Just comment and make sure I can e-mail you.
Here to make the post not without a pic a pic of an old quilt I made for charity a few years back. It was one of the first quilts I made.

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.

here I am

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.
