These are the first four ATC's finished for the Spring ATC swap on CQforNewbies. There are around 30 participants and I don't think I'll manage to make one for all of them but I hope to get at least 10 finished, due date is April 1th.

Next tuesday a new round of Sharon Boggon's TAST (Take A Stitch Tuesday) will start, she will publish a stitch to explore every tuesday until the end of the year, you can find more information here (see Febr.23th).

This is our dear doggie Daisy. I have made the painting during the last 2 weeks. It measures 40 x 40 cm, 16" square.
I am very happy that I am back to painting again. As I told you already I am not well the last months, in December I was diagnosed with PTSD and my concentration span is only around an hour. Luckely I am feeling better bit by bit and next monday I am going to try to work again although I may start with only an hour at a time.

Today I was searching for some fabric when I found this UFO (UnFinishedObject). It is from a libraryblockswap from some years ago, I hope to get it finished soon. Also I want to show you a little sampler that I bought some times ago, think I can use some of the stitches on my Crazy Quilts.

Today I received this wonderful smelling fabric page from Margreet
It is the last page in this swap from the Fibre_fevergroup.
I have now 13 pages and have pinned them all to the wall in my sewingroom. Officially I have to make a fabricbook of all pages but
they look so great on the wall that I am leaving them there for a while.

I was so happy that at last all snow melted and temperatures were going up the last week but now we are back to snow again. I sure wish spring is coming soon. I bought this lovely tulips today, I loved the color of them, when coming home I was very surprised to see that it are all double tulips, never seen them before!

This is Buster, the dachshund of my best friend Karin. I painted him for her birthday last Wednesday. It is 40x40cm (16"). I made it after a little picture of 5x5 cm. Karin and John always take care of our doggie Daisy when we can't, like last week when DH was operated and always when we go on holidays. Daisy loves to play with with Buster and their other dachshund Poekie.

This fabric postcard I made for the birthday of Helga in Germany, I also made this one in bold
Spring colors.

Last month I made this fabric page for Mieke, as you can see her theme is "Being lucky". I made a Crazy Quilted page with fabric I bought last year in Las Vegas.
