Icehockey-Quilt

for one of my best friends - Hans - Happy belated Birthday! I hope you will like the quilt - thanks for being one of my best friends since over 16 years.





The quilt is 68" x 78" - I planned to make it since over two years! Got the pattern, got the fabrics........ well and when do I start to work on this quilt.......8 weeks before I needed it -grrrrrr! And of course I didn´t manage it to be done on time,  run out of fabrics ordered some more, waited for them to arrive (lots of thanks to Nicole) - so I´m two weeks late now - but oh well - I think this quilt is worth of waiting another two weeks........I´m looking so forward to Hans´ reaction! Btw I used the colors matching our icehockey team.

Surprise-Package From Hobbyhoekje

Last week, some ladies at PQF were chatting about Hobbyhoekje and the surpise package they are offering for € 39,50. It will include 6 m fabrics, a quilting book, notions and a ruler (btw a real good price for Germany). I love surprises and I love almost every fabric..... so I thought it wouldn´t be such a risk to order the package.  A couple days later..........

the package has arrived


woohoo look... cotton batting crib size, batiks, glass pearls, quilting needles, stencil, ruler and a quilting book

I´m totally excited with what I have received from Hobbyhoekje........ thanks alot!

I´m Still Alive!!!

I´m here!

I´m still alive!

And I´m still sewing!

Lately I´m pretty busy with job, horse, sick cats and a quilt-project I have time pressure on. I´m already at the quilting part but it takes time like everything else. Hopefully I will finish the project by this weekend.

Bizkit and Moritz start getting closer and acutally spending some time together with playing. Maybe in a year or so - they will sleep together on the same blanket....... at least I keep this dream in my mind - lol.

Last week I had a MRT of my shoulder - wow - I had the feeling I was burried alive - and it was the first time I was glad I took yoga-class - I think it helped me to get through the 30 min of being burried alive-feeling.

So keep in your mind - yoga helps in every situation ;-)

(p.s. none of my cats - lol)
