A special quilt,

I'm working on a cute friendship/wedding quilt.
I was asked to do a workshop for a bride and their friends,
They wanted a special gift for the bride!
So while the bride searched for her favorite colors and fabrics,
the friends each embroidered something personal
on a little
piece of cotton-linnen fabric.
 
Some of them never touched a needle... 
 I think it's going to be a lovely quilt!
And what a glorious feeling will it be 
to lie under a little quilt
made with the love of friends.

Is it fall yet?

It sure feels like fall here.
Rain, wind, more rain and its cold!

Perfect weather to snuggle up on the couch under a warm blanket
and crochet granny squares

Roses,

Roses are one of my favorite flowers,
And for several years I tried to grow them in our garden..
Beautiful colorful, wonderful fragrant roses...
unfortunately me and growing roses.. it's no good.
They get fungi, lice.. they never look like that picture!
Guess I better stick with sewing roses.
This cute couple is in the shop.
Groetjes,

Back again,

After a great break.. we are back again.
 During the vacation we found the most
beautiful embroideries.
The last few days it has been raining...
so perfect weather to sew bags for the shop,
 
 With all the rain outside..
 I brought a litlle sun (flowers) inside.
 
 Hopefully there will be sun tomorrow..
If not.... you know what I'll be doing!
