Lot of snow in Luxembourg

After all the snowfall yesterday it was perfect going out for a walk in the forest today.
What a lovely day this was, not to cold - about -3°C and no wind.

And  I was so full of energy when I came back from the walk.
I hand pieced one block for my DJ, baked and cooked a delicious fish soup.

Hope you all had a lovely weekend.


CWB block two

At last I manage to finish my second block for the CWB quilt. I really enjoy doing hand applique it is so relaxing.
It is funny now that I'm retired, it seems to be less time, or I have to much to do.
Now I will do some DJ blocks before I prepare the next CWB block.

Take care


Back from Miami

Well, now I'm back to Iceland after 10 days golf trip to Miami Florida. It was terribly cold in Miami, even though coming from Iceland, I was freezing the first four days, then it started to warm up a bit and was nice and warm the last day. Well that is life.
I didn’t do much sewing there, but I managed to start on block number two for my Civil War Bride quilt. I hope I can finish that one before I go back home to Luxembourg on the 24th of January. 
It has been a long time away from my sewing machine, I'm really looking forward going home again.
There is no place like home

Happy New Year

Going through my old quilts on New Years Day I came across these silk quilts, which I made many years ago, using my DH neckties. He used to love buying silk ties and I loved to cut them up when he didn’t use them anymore. He still has over 100 silk ties, which he is not yet willing to give to me. I will just be patient, I know I will get them one day. It is funny looking at these old quilts, I would do them differently today.

This one, Cathedral Windows,  has some beautiful ties
but the other two have very old  ties and not so beautiful.

I wish you all a happy and healthy New Year
 and a very good quilting year.
