Sinterklaas & QuiltAid

First of all thank you for your kind wishes for a speedy recovery. They worked, because I'm nearly back to normal. I'm still very tired, but that's probably normal after having been ill for three weeks.

On Saturday we celebrated Sinterklaas, a Dutch custom which resembles Santa Claus giving presents.

I received some lovely goodies. See picture below. Luna is inspecting the bird house which I received.




So far six of the twelve blocks for QuiltAid2011 have arrived and they are all so cute! Not sure where to start once my second Berries & Bluebirds block is done.



The fabric which is used is the new line Ruby by Moda Fabrics and it is ever so pretty.


This one, designed by Lynette Anderson, is very high on my list of favourites to start with.


I will be back tomorrow for WOW: WIPs on Wednesdays, and will show you my progress on my second Berries & Bluebirds block.

Glad your feeling better. Fun gifts! I really like the bird house (and it looks like Luna does too). The colors in the QuiltAid project are really nice - very bright and happy. Looking forward to watching your progress.

Cats are ALWAYS interested in birdhouses, I wonder why... :-) I'm glad you're better, and what great gifts you had from Sint.
