Building houses

Decided to build one house for each month
so it is a Doll Quilt, well not a Quilt yet, but
soon to be, it is a top, that will be quilted by hand.

This quilt I named Pentecost, the idea came to me last Whitsunday
 and I decided to participate 
at the "Bastelkiste" exhibition in Luxembourg. (very small exhibition)
The theme was to be feast.
But I believe it was a bit too religious. 
But I will hang it in my sewing room, I like the colours.

The books I have been reading lately:

The Bell Jar, Sylvia Plath's only novel, published 1963.
The Journals of Sylvia Plath.
Gathering Evidence, a memoir by Thomas Bernhard.
The Loser by Thomas Bernhard

All rather depressing

My life with Mozart by Eric-Emmanuel Schmitt (very sweet book)

Then came the best one "LANDVÆTTIR" by Ófeigur Sigurðsson.
very funny story about a young man's life working in a "meat processing factory".
Sorry to say it is only in Icelandic.

Well that's all,
Happy quilting.


The winner is:

the name that wins the book.
"Reasons for Quilts"
by Edyta Sitar.

I hope she enjoys the book.

Preparing for winter, three pairs of socks, one pair already out of the house,
2 meters long scarf and

a sweater with a hood. 

You can see a bit of my "Dear Jane" in the second picture.
I'm machine quilting it.
My wish is to finish it before the end of this year and
have it at the Dear Jane Exhibition in Nantes 2013.
It is always good to have a goal - isn't it??????

Until next time
Happy quilting
