It has been quite a while since I´ve been at a Ice Hockey game. I was all excited about going to see the Ice Tigers again and this time I took my uncle Eckart and my cousin Petra *winkewink* with me. I think we got two new fans of the IceTigers *lol*. Sadly we lost after a fightful and fast game and penalty shooting........
I love old and/or nostaligic looking tins and its always hard to resist especially when I´m strolling around at a fleamarket or companies are offering nostalgic tins for a special anniversary or so.......like Wrigley´s
Holes, holes, holes and some more holes........ I guess I´m getting already nightmares from those worm holes. It wouldve been absolutly easier to exchange the buttom boards but then the chest would´ve lost some of its character....... oh well now I try to stabalize those boards with epoxy resin and I tell you the boards are taking a lot of it.............the wood worms did a good job on them........the created a perfect labyrinth a lot of paths and barely any wood left *lol*
The chest will be a real beauty when its finished (whenever this will be!)
Couple weeks ago I got very carefully asked if I would have time to make another toddler quilt - well actually I dont really have time since I would like to get finished or started with my stuff before I get retired *lol*. BUT I will make some money out of this toddler quilt, which means I could get some extra goodies or put it in my piggy bank for my next trip to see my friend Nicole + family ....... I guess I will have time to make an toddler quilt.
The pic turned out a bit blue but its a lot of blue fabric
Bizkit was never ever interested in spending some time in the sewing room. It was always little Tigger who was with me there.... Tigger was all over the sewing room but not Bizkit. Since a couple of months Bizkits behavior is changing - starts eating stuff he wouldnt even sniff on it before, wants more cuddling (normally he was like "Dont touch me") etc. ......... and start coming into my sewing room and acutally spending time with me there. He already got promoted and got his own chair. This weekend I was doing some quilting on my birthday-block-quilt when he got off his chair climbed on the table to lay on my quilt. I only had a couple more stitches to do.......oh well I found something else to do :-)
What are you doing if your cat is getting bored? Bizkit is barley going outside at the moment....... too much snow and too cold for his furry butt. If I make him go outside, it only takes him half a minute to run around the house to go back inside through his kitty door. He is meowing and bugging me me to get up and play with him - but most of the time its me playing with his toys and him watching me how I play with his toys!!!
I was browsing through some german internet shops and found a good deal for quilting stencils.... they where 50 % off - WOW this barely happen over here. So I couldnt resist and ordered some of the "on sale" stencils. Well the two stipples where regular price :-( - but I wanted them for my birthday-block-quilt.
and of course Bizkits ear, nose, head etc. had to be in the pic also
the quality check seemed to be satisfying so the supervisor could take a break
My friend Nicole got me a Thread Rack from June Tailor as an Christmas present - *THANK YOU* - and I love it. Finally a place to store my threads with the bobbins without tieing them together. Threads with bobbins on the rack - threads in a little wooden box.
The week before Christmas I got my old tattoo renewed and I must say I´m in love with it - my rose is blooming again.. Since Harry made my tattoo about 17 years younger - I asked him if he can do this with the rest of my body too *lol*
I got the other one "fixed" too - but the pic came out to bright.
