Look what I have got....

This little cutie arrived together with a Christmas present yesterday. It came all the way from Australia and Jenny, my partner in SSCS 2009. The present has to wait until Christmas Eve, I´m so curious...... Thank you very much Jenny!

This wonderful little Christmas quilt came from Austria and Ilse, my partner in the Holiday Quilt Swap. In the parcel was also a wonderful, yummy chocolate bar. Thank you very much Ilse!

Here is a photo of what I sent for the Holiday Quilt Swap:

Again: Thank you very much both of you, I feel very spoilt!

Take care, happy stitching

Once upon a time....

.....there was a little girl......guess who it is?
Yes, it´s me and my grandma and grandpa.....about 45 years ago.....and I´m still stitching.

A closer look.

Today there was no stitching at all, didn´t feel well this morning and stayed at home together with my computer. My daugther was home too and took care of me and now I feel much better.
Tomorrow I´ll be back in my studio, a lot of projects are waiting for me......

Even colder....

....about -6C this morning.....but no snow...dreaming of a white Christmas....not too late.....wait and see.

I have participated in 4SQS Holiday Quilt Swap and this is what I sent too my swap partner, Margaret.

I had a lot of fun making this quilt, didn´t count the pieces but there are more than one....paper pieced....

I haven´t recieved my quilt yet, still curious about who is my partner.....waiting....exciting!

Today I´ve started to make the bag and needle case I showed you yesterday using these fabrics.
And this set I will keep for myself....started to stitch the roses today....pink and green....love it!

December, today it´s winter!!?? OK, it was frozen outside this morning, but no snow yet.....
Soon it is Christmas, can´t believe that....

A while ago a parcel arrived in my mailbox all the way from USA and Sherry Vlcej, my Stitcher´s Angel this year. Here is a picture of what she sent me.

Thank you very, very much, Sherry!

My partner in the Stitcher´s Angel swap was Lurline from Australia and here are pictures of what she got from me.
