Sorry, no much posting this week, I am in bed with pneumonia.
Received 2 nice hearts today from Jo in NZ and Carol in Canada,
will show some pictures later this week.
Tina thanks for mailing that I am so "tealented" after seeing the blocks for the Teatime swap...LOL

Back to bed......

I want to share a picture with you that I received this morning...
Next year in June I am going on a walking trip to Scotland with a
group of quiltingfriends. Here you see me dreaming of the trip, have you seen my red walking socks.......LOL My friends know me well, I drink tea all day and collect Piglets and you see me often dressed in hard pink!

The start of my Paisley Bauble Bag.........

Today a picture of my 1:12 scale Amish dollshousequilt made of 1/4 inch hexagons.
I am really busy at this moment making blocks for a "Teatime" swap and with a Paisley Bauble bag. Will see if I can show you some pictures later.

May Britt and Jo, thanks for your compliments on my moonfish, glad I could make you smile..........LOL

Last week I received 2 wonderful hearts from Helina from Finland (with roses) and my "Big Sis" Beverly Ann from the USA (dragonfly).
Thanks so much for swapping ladies!

Yesterdayevening I have started to make a Paisley Bauble Bag for a swap on CQForNewbies.
I made this embroidery, but think it doesn't look much "Paisley", more a
sick moonfish......LOL
What do you think?

No, today not a picture of my sewing room..........LOL, but a roombox that I made some years ago. The samplerquilt on the right measures 4 x 4 inches, 10 x 10 cm.
Next to patchwork my other big hobby is making miniatures, scale 1:12 for my dollshouse and roomboxes.

Today I received 2 wonderful hearts. The light one with the red roses is from my friend Lorenza in Italy, Lorenza you did (as ever)
a great job! The "Americana" heart I swapped with Susan Nixon from the USA, Susan, I like it very much and it is a nice reminder of the trip I made to the USA earlier this year!

I also want to show you a picture of a stitcherie I just finished.

When I was in France I found some more old postcards. Have been busy taking photo's and resizing them all afternoon, thought they look great in the middle of a Crazy Quilt block or heart!

Finally I managed to print them and what happened: empty cartridge, you can imagine that I wasn't happy with that!

I am glad that I got such nice comments on my Victorian block, it really is my first try and normally I never make such "feminine"
Lillian, I bought the fabric here in Holland at:
And Charlene, here is a picture of the heart my DH wants to keep:

My nr. 9 Staphorst block is on it's way to Lorenza in Italy, one of the Debbie Mumm blocks to Susan in the USA.
