Quilt Luisa Is Done

Yay - next quilt I can cross out my WADs-list 2011. I´ve finished the quilt yesterday and it will be handed over tonight.

It took me quite a while until I had a good idea for this quilt. Everything I thought about was ok but didnt got to excited but with this result I´m very pleased.

X-Mas-Tree Swap

It was good that I bought alot of red fabrics at my last vacation in the US. Like I have known that I will join a swap at QLR and known that I will use alot of red. Last Thurdays I have finished my blocks - packed them and mailed them off on friday.

To each block belongs a extra strip 2.5" x 8.5"  those will be used for stripped blocks which goes between the x-mas trees. Side note: This will be a pretty big quilt.

Chicken Coop Part 1

Ok - here is a little peek to show you what kept me busy the last few weeks. I kinda renovate the chicken coop. We dont have any chicken anymore and so I have decided to use the building as a garden shed. Nothing has been fixed the last hmmmm I would say two decades..... well at least 15 years and I´ve learned a lesson so far -  with one building site you start with - you will find at least ten more things what need to be fixed - you just dont know it yet.

A HUGE THANK YOU to my uncle Eckart - his help is priceless.

I got more soil to fill up this little yard and gras got sowed yesterday. I still need to buy and install a eaves gutter to the roof and maybe within the next two years the roof tiles on the side you can see will be replaced (those are the reeeeeaaally old ones). So far is the outside done - know I will continue working on the inside.

I Still Spend Time In My Sewing Room

I just dont find the time to post alot. Fulltime job, working on the chicken coop, taking care of Candy and when its getting late and dark I´ll sneak up into my sewing room

those squares I prepared for my friends wedding

I want the guest to sign them, add a poem, something funny or blessings. A member of QLR gave me the tip to iron on those squares on freezer paper this makes them more stiff and its easier to write on them. Thanks alot for the great tip TMM

30 blocks are done and seam allowance is marked as well - just a help that there is no writing beyond the line

here I continued working on my swap-project - patterns are drawn on fusible

I´m done quilting this toddler quilt and now.......

..... it keeps me busy with sewing in threads

R.I.P. Icehockey Team Lokomotive Jaroslawl

37 team members

 - including our national team player Robert Dietrich -

and 7 crew members died in a plane crash last Wednesday near Jaroslawl, Russia - so many young people have lost their lifes.

My thoughts and prayers are with their families and friends.
