Yesterday, after some beautiful weeks (you really get used to that) I was rather surprised getting up and see it was raining. A little bit, so I jumped on my bike and set off to the swimmingpool. Why bother a little rain? But soon the rain poured out of heaven and coming back after my trip I decided it was best to stay at home, sitting on the couch and watch a movie, Twilight. DD joined me :)
Of course I always am busy sewing or stitching while watching a movie. This afternoon I have been quilting and stitching on my Chatelaine, I have to admit, I didn't stitch that much, I don't like the stitching of the border with flowers. I like the way it looks, but stitching them it something else ...
Another thing to mention is this nice award Bonnie gave me. I have to pass it along to a couple of other stitchers and as soon as I saw the award I thought it would be nice to give it to all HAED stitchers of the group I'm in. Ingrid had the same idea and posted before I had the chance. Nonetheless I'll hand the reward over to all the great members of this group.
Talking of HAED, there's also some progress on Vibrant Vista. Page 4 is almost done, I am already moving on to page 10, beneath it.
Yesterday my new floss came in. I bought some beautiful grey colors on ebay, from a dear and talented lady. Her shop is called the Victorian Motto Sampler Shoppe and she added some nice pinks to compensate me for shippingcosts.
It's been a busy week, with travelling around. I have been visiting a quilting shop, which announced 'Open House' last thursday. I wanted to order some fabrics, but when I noticed the 'Open House' I thought I might as well go and look for myself. I had a lovely day, meeting nice people and came home with a bunch of new pieces of fabric. I also bought a new stitchery design by Lynette Anderson and started right away. Today I finished the top, so all I have to do now is layering and a little bit of quilting. Good practice! I also have to practice on these pinwheels. I notice they are far from perfect!
