My knitting slowed down alot especially after I found my passion in quilting a few years ago. So once in a while I knit some socks or like know I´ve started to knit a scarf..... it was a kit for 3 € even the round needle were included.

Here is the beginning.........

Lampion Found Its Place In My House

I made this lampion with my friend Nicole while I was visiting her in June. Couple weeks ago I even found a plain lamp socket (never thought it would be so hard to find one) and this weekend I´ve finished it and hung it up.


Rocco is part of our family since mid January this year and 10 month later Bizkit finally shared his chair with him - Rocco all comfy and Bizkit still sceptical about it. Can you believe that they havent laid this close before?!?! 

Bizkit is not very social to other cats when it comes to his sleeping habits and places. Normally its enough when he gets slightly touched by the other cats hair to enrage him.

Digged Out An Ufo

This quilt was laying around for two years - blame me!!!! I started quilting it in 2009 and after a while I put it aside until today. Its one of my projects I would love to finish this year......
I´ve started stippling the center parts - I´m still learning and partly it could look a bit better but I can live with it.

I hope I can keep my motivation to finish the quilt before New-Years-Eve.

Christmas Deco Swap

This swap was organized by Sandra at FB  - THANKS alot for the whole organizing.
And this is what my swap partner Silke will recieve - two Wichtels, a X-mas tree......

..... and this table topper

I so hope Silke will like it. She left a note at the groups wall that her X-mas decoration is kept in red/white. I guess I will find out the next couple of days.......

Blind Quilter

Have you ever sewn without using your eyes? This lady is pretty amazing and inspiring - just WOW since I´m using my eyes for every stitch and cut I make!

This video got posted on FB at one of the Quilting groups I´m in............ I thought I had to share!

Mr. Snowman Is Moving In

Saturday evening we went to an small X-mas fair - with some booths with selfmade goodies...... well even a quilter was there. We were strolling with some cups of Glühwein through the fair when this little dude caught my eye

Mr. Snowman moved into my house - isnt he cute???

FNSI November - Results

Ok - this time I got very late into my sewing room and before I´ve started sewing I had to do some serious online-shopping :D 

I got the star top done

and trimmed the wallhanging, to sew on the hangers and the binding. Now I will have some couch time with the wallhanging while sewing on the binding at the backside by hand.

Ya´ll have a great weekend!

......and sew those together to make more stuffed trees.......

Sooooooo......... will see how soon I will be in my sewing room tonight and how much I will get done before I get too tired. Happy stitchin!!!

I Love Squishy Mail

After a whole week hunting down my mail man - he finally delivered the squishy envelope I was expecting - hooray!

 I was participating the X-Mas tree swap at QLR and yesterday I have received the envelope with the swapped blocks - have a look

for each block was a extra strip of fabric added

Aint those blocks super pretty??? Thanks to Tracy for organizing this swap and to all the participants for making such great blocks. All I need is some extra time to turn the blocks into ...... well at least a top in the near future.

Some Little Things

Lately I dont spent as much time as I want to in my sewing room. Last weekend I havent even made on stitch - can you believe this?!? ..... well me neither. At the moment I´m working on some little things like decoration for winter/Christmas

the tree (still needs some working on) belongs to me and the Wichtels are for a swap

aaaannnnd after three years I have finally finished these socks. I call them chemo-socks because I started them while my Mom had her Chemo-treatments and spended the time with her waiting until she was done with her infusion. Like most of the time I make the socks out of wool scraps.

How Nice Fall Can Be

I think it was two weeks ago when I took the pics of a great morning at work....... sun is rising and you can look forward to a beautiful fall day

view towards the rails

But this week we got the other side from fall...... lots of thick fog, grey clouds, a bit of drizzling and NO sun at all. I guess I have to look a bit longer at my pics - maybe it will help me to get some energy boost.

Sunday Sewing

Sunday evening I have finished quilting my Halloween wallhanging (after Halloween is before Halloween - right?!). All I need to do is sewing in some threads and add the binding.

of course as soon as I put the wallhanging on the floor, Moritz has to check it out

I quilted some spiderwebs and sewed around the ghost

Here are some Wichtels I started sewing for a X-Mas deco swap - I will finish them tonight.

Rocco passed out after a long day outside - lol!

and Moritz was just chillin after he was done playing with some scraps.

Fun Sewing Night

We havent had a fun sewing night since quite a while but last friday was they day where we had our little get together for some sewing, chatting and laughing.

Angela is getting setup

Marianne was showing a quillow she made in stock

in between we were sipping some red wine

ok here is the proof that we were actually working with fabrics too and not only with red wine :D

I havent hung up my lampion yet because I needed to fix the whole wire ring and not only pointwise like I did

lighten up!

I posted the pic of the lampion at the QF and one of my quiltfriends has mentioned that the wooden beads are missing ;-) .... so here they are.

After a while of sewing we made a break to make some Lumumba (hot chocolate milk with some amaretto)

We were sewing until 2 am, well thats at least the time when I packed my stuff to go home ;-)

And here are some fabrics Angela gave to me THANKS alot
Vielen vielen Dank Angela für die vielen schönen Stoffe

I missed one person in our little group my friend and Mariannes daughter Nicole ......but she lives with her family in TX........ it would´ve been the total highlight to have her around us.
