SSCS (a little help for my partner)

Well I just couldn't resist to participate again in this exchange despite the dissapointment last year with Cindy never sending me a thank you message or showing the gifts on her blog. Well that was last year and this is a new year.
Just looking forward to making something for my new partner. No ideas yet and I didn't know her blog yet, but love reading it already.
I thought let's help the person who has me a little bit and give her a little list of thinks I like:
I love traditional patterns. I love items I can use like bags, pincushions, etc. My favorite colors are not bright, but rustique. Love blue the most, but fall colors like in Gobble Gobble are also favorites of mine.

Nothing in, nothing out and also not a lot of sewing happened. I had a very busy week and just to tired to get behind the sewing machine. I think I have worked for an hour or two at the most on 40T.

stash busting report week 34

Well it was a good and a bad week. I busted a lot, but there came also in a lot. But still more busted than added in total.

I have busted some extra zaza fabric to add to the giveaway and also started my 40T quilt, which uses a fqtower.

Than added was layercakes of gobble gobble and some background fabric.

Added and busted were the new block of the mysterie designer BOM.

A new club

I just joined this new club . It is about schnibbles which are the little quilt patterns I just love to make. I have made two now and just am in love with them and you can even win something at the end of each month.

Just go here and sign up. You can find some of the patterns here. I have a lot of them and also a lot of charmpacks with some yardage (just ordered some more (naughty me)
Also finally started this kit. Just had problems cutting in those beautifull fq's. I have cut the background fabric so far. Hope to do some more tonight as the last days were just to warm to do anything.

What I have been working on

Ja, ik heb niet echt stil gezeten de afgelopen weken. Ik heb veel geborduurd aan roodkapje en heb weer 2 pagina's af sinds de foto een maand geleden.Yeah I haven't sit still these past week. I have been stitching on Little red riding hood a lot and I have finished another 2 pages since the last pic a month ago.

Deze laatste week heb ik aan de mysterie designer bom gewerkt en een groot deel van de finishing kit is al klaar en ook het derde blok wat vandaag in de postbus zat is klaar.

This past week I have been working on the mysterie designer BOM and today I got block 3 in the mail and it is finished already.

Stashbusting report week 33

Yes I have been busting again. I started the finishing kit for the mysterie desiner bom and I am going very fast with it. Hope to have some sewing time again this coming week as the last 3 days were very busy with other things. Today I will just rest a bit.
Nothing came in, but I have a few orders coming in. 20 half yards in white and cream for some quilt I need some backgrounds for and I don't have any background fabric at all at the moment. So probaly will use them soon. Than an order for gobble gobble (2 layercakes and a bit of yardage for a miss rosie pattern). And block 3 of the mysterie designer bom. But lucky me that still all has to come in. But when I will have a bust also this week I will have still used more than came in and I have a bust in mind.

stashbusting report week 32

First don't forget the giveaway in this post still running till wednesday. I am giving away a jellyroll and that is always nice to have in the house for future quilts.

Than the report. Well it is a very good one for me. I have used a backing, 2 bindings and two jellyrolls. One jellyroll for the give away and one as a present for my mother's birthday. That is 13 meters in total. Not bad at all and another big bust is going to happen next week, but I have a big problem as Gobble Gobble is really tempting me to buy it. I am not sure if I can keep it in the store for much longer.

A finish and a round robin back home

First let me remind you to not forget the giveaway in the last post. Still more than enough time to sign up for it. You can do so much with a jelly roll.

Than next I have finished my romantic strip quilt tuesday. I finally decided on how to quilt it. I have done it in a circle pattern and it is made by using a jelly roll from Harvest Home and a bit of yardage.

I love how it looks very much and am a very happy person, but that is also due to me getting back my spring fling round robin finished. The centerwas made by me, the first border by Chelsea, the second border by Trish and the quilting is done by Tami. Thank you girls it is beautifull.

Ik zat al een tijdje te denken over een giveaway en doordat ik Tag Sale en Sweet Emma Rose van Miss Rosie's quiltco per ongeluk dubbel heb. Geef ik beide patronen weg en een zaza jellyroll. Hier zie je hoe de Zaza stoffenlijn eruit zien. Je kunt tot 12 augustus 12 uur een reactie achter laten op mijn blog en ik zal daarna laten weten wie gewonnen heeft. Succes.

Top finished

Vandaag heb ik deze top afgekregen. Hij bestaat uit 117 blokjes, 58 snowballs en 59 ninepatches. Ik heb niet genoeg stof voor een rand er langs, dus het moet hem zo maar worden. Ben zeer tevreden. Zodra de vulling binnen is ga ik hem sandwichen en quilten.

Today I finished this top. It has a total of 117 blocks in it. 58 snowballs and 59 ninepatches. I don't have enough fabric for a border, so it will stay like this. As soon as the batting comes in this week I will sandwich and quilt it.

stashbusting report week 31

The good news nothing came in and also no order on the way, The bad news is nothing went out and well that is not what needs to happen when you are busting fabrics, but next week there will be a good bust. Watch this blog.
