Bits of News

A few bits of news to share with you.

This is what I was working on a week ago: a little present for Michele
She received it today, so I can now share it with you.
A while back a little group of stitchers started an ornament SAL and I haven't been very good at participating. I guess this counts :o)

Last Friday I picked up a book that I had ordered from the small quiltstore in Lisse.

It is a book by Véronique Réquena of Born to Quilt in France; the 2008/2009 Mystery.

I started browsing the book there and then and just had to buy a few fabrics ;o) :

These are fabrics to use as backgrounds for the blocks.

One more background fabric and two others for the pieces.

And one more background and a selection of the fabrics for the (bird) houses and other pieces.

And for those cat lovers among you, here is Diva Kruimel:

This is how I caught him having a snooze this afternoon.

Thanks for all your lovely comments. I really appreciate it.

How is Krumiel comfortable enough to sleep? lol!

Beautiful fabrics!!

Ineke said...

Lovely fabrics! You will enjoy working with them.
Kruimel keeps amazing me. He tries so many ways to squeeze himself in the basket and never fits.

Lovely present for Michele! I haven't been good at the ornies either...

Some of my quilting friends have that book, and it's just gorgeous: I'll look forward to seeing you make it.

I wish I could sleep as easily as a cat :-)

Wat een leuk cadeautje voor Michelle zeg. Die zal zich verwend voelen. Het boek heb ik ook aangeschaft bij Samsara en zit het nu heerlijk door te spitten in Zuid-Frankrijk.

Hoi Rennie, dank je wel!

Hou er rekening mee, als je het project gaat maken uit het boek, dat je niet kunt volstaan met fat quarters voor de meeste achtergronden. Dat is gewoon te klein! Ik maak die quilt op 75% van het oorspronkelijke formaat, zodat ik toch de aangeschafte fat quarters kan gebruiken. Ik zal donderdag Jacqueline waarschuwen als ik daar ben.

Fijne vakantie!
