Answers and Goals

A lot of people ask why I am giving angel of summer away. Well that is an easy one to answer for me. I am with everyone that she is beautifull, but she is not my style and just don't have room to hang her and she is already finished for some years now and for the girls saying that it must have taken me very lon to finish, that is not true, she was finished in about 6 weeks I think.

I decided to give myself a few goals per month again as it motivates me a bit better. Here are they for December:
- Work on the caroline christmas mysterie
- Work on the mysterie designer bom (finish block 5,6 and 7 and work a bit more on the finishing kit).
- Work on 40T
- Make two blocks for the sbs quilt.
- Start quilt for my colleague
- Finish 2 pages of LRRH

stashbusting report week 48

Don't forget about my give away.

It was not a bad week, but also not a good week. Fabric went out and fabric came in.
First what came in. It were charmpacks from Old Primrose Inn and some yardage and some yardage for binding on a quilt I will be making one day LOL.

Also I received a prize I one with the year of schnibbles, now my question is do you also count the fabric you win or get as a gift?

Than Fabric went out also. I have busted 8 yards for the Carolina Christmas mysterie from Bonnie, already started the quilt and like it so far.

It looks like I will stay in the positive numbers till the end of the year.

Fabric in week 48: 4.45 meter

Fabric out week 48: 7.20 meter

Fabric in 2009: 138.20 meter

November schnibbles

Yesterday evening I finished my november schnibbles, as soon as I finished the october one, as slow I am with the november one. It wasn't my favourite, not totally happy with the result as it is very red (I think). May be I will add another border to it when I have looked at it very long and can decided which fabric will look great with it, but maybe I will leave it this way.

SSCS and more

Well my sscs gift is send and here is the pic of it.

LOL that is all I will be showing of it till after christmas. Loved working on the gift.

I decided to partipate in Bonnie's next mysterie, the carolina christmas. I already picked out my fabrics, very scrappy, had big problems finding the right colors gold and big enough pieces. Looking forward to see how it will look like when finished.
Than I am also busy with the november schnibbles, which I only have to add the sashings too and the border, won't do it according to the pattern. A pic of the finished top will follow later this week.

Monthly update of lttile red riding hood

She is growing fantastic. This month I have finished 2 pages, but I also have stitched on another piece, so two pages is not bad at all. And do you she HER, there she is little red riding hood, showing her face.
Also in the coming month there will be a giveaway on this blog as I am up to 700 posts and also I am posting here for 4 years next month. If you are on my follower list on the left of the page you will get one more entry on winning, but I will explain more in the coming weeks. It will be a big stitched piece from me (no not little red riding hood), one that I finished a few years back, only left for you to do when you win it is framing it.
Yesterday evening I finally started on my picnic quilt and I did already do all the pieces for the baskets, now I have to cut the sashings and the border and than start to do the assembling.

Both the babysets

Well like you can see I have been very busy. Later I will change my sewingroom back into a quiltingroom. I am not totally happy with the light blue one, so that one maybe will change or I maybe I will make two dark blue ones.

But first it is time to work on my sscs gift.

I am a winner

I am a very happy girl. I read on Sherri her blog from the year of schnibbles that I won a prize, it is a panel from Fabulous fall with coordinating fabrics. I will show the prize when it will arrive.
Than today when I was at my work I saw on our webpage from the hospital that there were tickets for the musical Chigaco, two for the price of one and as we are married for 9 years this weekend. I decided to do it and order them. So we will have a nice evening in two weeks.
Hope it will be as good or better than Mamma Mia, where we were at the end of September, also with tickets from my work.
I really have to go now and work on the cloths.

Two baby jackets

Did you see the parade of schnibbles. I just love the look of them all. Next one is Picnic. I have the pattern and the fabric line that is in line to get used is Winter. Looking forward to see how that one will look when finished.
Today I have been working on both these jackets. They went together very fast and also I think they came out very nice. Next to make are two sweaters. Fabric is cut already, now only the sewing is there to do.
