I like the quilting on the backside
I´m still thinking about if I put a zipper in or if I make a "hotelverschluss" (closing without zipper - I dont know what it´s called in english) - what do you think?!?
After wiping the chest off there are already different color nuancen to see
Yiiikes!!! That what it looks like after it dried - more work than I thought
Ascertainment of old stuff: Dont be so picky and leave the dirt on!!!

Guess where they are from?!?
Couple years ago Linda & Henry were travelling around Germany and looking for Schmelzer relatives out of the family-tree. My Moms maiden name is Schmelzer and our trees are connected back in the 18. century. I´m so happy that we have met and still are in touch.
How lovly they look - put together like a star
Look at those pretties

Getting ready to BBQ
Magpie-birds watch out - Big Bizkit is watching the food
The last couple of years we start having alot of magpies around here and its better not to leave your food unattended - it might be gone when you come back
My mom brought out a wooden puzzle - its called "Das Ei des Kolumbus" there are 9 different wooden pieces and you have to put it together so it will look like an egg
we all got busy trying to put it together - even the kids were helping
After a while we stopped without having the solution
Chiara said its very hard to do

My Moms friend Paula will celebrate her 75th Birthday on July, 2. We were thinking about what we will get her as an gift and I came up with the idea to make her a memory-pillow like my Moms. Paulas life partner died 2 month after my Dad and she always looked at my Moms memory pillow I made. The first hard part was to get some pictures with both on it - I actually got two (but same scene) from her family and made the best out of it. At the first pic Josef (Sepp) was looking a bit angry and at the other pic Paula looked somewhere else - so I made photo montage of those two pics and you barly cant see it on the regular size and not at all on the small one. Well - I think I did a good job *lol* and I also printed some angels because Paula loves angels.
Thats the pics and the poem from the obituary notice I will use (upper right side is the photo montage)
This are the colors I can use so the pillow would fit in Paulas living-room - hmm on the pic you cant actully see the color differences on the fabrics
All I need is an idea how to turn this into a pillow - what pattern I will use, aso......... ideas are welcome *hint-hint*
This quilt will be a throw for Bizkits chair and this is the part for the seating surface(?)
