Wir vermissen dich!!!
14 Tage bevor mein Papa starb, wurde meine Mama an Brustkrebs operiert mit anschliessender Chemo und Bestrahlung. Die letzten 15 Monate haben mich doch ziemlich geprägt und härter gemacht, da ich die "Starke" bin, die seit April 2008 für Mama da war und ist.
In the meantime the next quilt in line is waiting to get quilted. The blocks are out of the birthday-block swap of QLR my theme was rainbow colors. I love how colorful this quilt turned out. I´m just not sure about the quilting - I dont really wanna quilt through the blocks. Maybe some stitch in the ditch around the blocks and a allover quilting in the beige triangle. What color of thread should I use??? I think its to much color if I quilt the beige triangles with a multicolor thread - what do you think???

Its from TexasMusicMom aka Nancy - she send me some great texas themed batik and also themed bundle of fabric. I´m speechless and dont know what to say besides THANK YOU Nancy and it was not necessary at all *many hugs*!!!!
If you look close to this batik - there is a bucking horse, cowboy hat and -boots and the skull of an longhorn on it. What a great fabric!!!!

(Pic stolen from Nicoles blog :-))
So that´s what I got for his birthday - not just a beer its a 2 litre beer bottle with a personalized sign on front of this case. The case with the bottle is 19 1/2" (50 cm) tall
Now BuT can say to his girlfriend I will only have one bottle of beer *lol* - just dont mention the size of the bottle.......
I have also bought this marker from Clover "HERA" - in this case I was just nosy if it really marks as well (creasing sharp lines into the fabric) as I have heared from some other quilting-gals
I will test them both the next couple of days and let you know what my opinion is about those markers.

(copy from Keepsake Quilting)
Somehow I fell in love with it and I NEED to have it - so why wait for the catalog - I just hopped on their website and ordered it. What a bummer they have back ordered it and the kit will be expected by end of August. Hopefully two weeks for international delivery *note for customs: Hurry up I really need it* and then I need to rush to get it done before Halloween. For the quilting I will use my night-glowing thread - how cool will this be when the wallhanging starts glowing in the dark?!?

an old Mercedes SL 300 Coupé from somewhere in the 50th
There is a Oldtimer dealer in town and every now and then he shows up with pretty cars like this to have them scaled. Its the first time I had the chance to grab my office camera to take a picture
