Needlemania again

Today I finished part 4 of Needlemania 2. It's really a quickstitch this way, one part a week until now! And I only stitch on it the weekends. This weekend was a short one, I had to work Saturday morning. Normally I stitch in the morning, that is, in weekends. As I was determined to finsh a part each week I started stitching on it yesterday evening and went on sundaymorning and even in the afternoon. It was rather snowy outside, so I didn't feel up to anything else.

This week I also stitched on Holland Springtime again. I managed to do to of the bows completely, the other two only partially. Now I have to decide whether to start stitching on the content of the upper bow ( I really look forward to that!!) or to stitch by the book and that means I have finish the bows completely before turning to the content of the bows.
Tough decision!

I also have some progress on Red Delicious. It's quite some work, I use the feston stitch to stitch the applique parts on black fabric and I do it by hand. I have to admit most of it is done in 'lost' hours, behind my computer when surfing ;) or waiting until my computer is finally started up.

It all looks awesome, Joke! Love the NM and Holland (still one of my favorite Chatelaines). Appliques are adorable!

All your pieces are wonderful! The Holland piece is my favorite since I was very tempted to get that piece myself. :D The applique is adorable! And the Needlemania piece is beautiful.

Red Delicious is beautiful. I love your Chatelaine - such a hard decision for you to make....LOL. Enjoy whichever way you go.

Wat heb je veel gedaan deze dagen.
Heel aparte werkjes heb jij altijd zeg.
De Red Delicious is zo mooi van kleur, ik denk dat je straks een bijzondere quilt gaat krijgen, of was je er wat anders mee van plan?
Ik heb mijn kersenmand vandaag aan mijn ma laten zien, ze was er meteen weg van.
Mooi, dan is ie voor haar.
Ik kan er niet aan wennen hoor.
Ze wilde dat ik er dan een sierkussen van ga maken, dus ik ga proberen om dat zo mooi mogelijk voor haar te doen.

All of your projects are fantastic. And the stitching is just beautiful. I absolutely love how you finished Traveling Stitcher in your previous post. The box is just gorgeous.

O wat heb jij mooie dingen onderhanden! Awesome is het perfecte woord ervoor. Wow, dat 2e werk is zo precious, heel erg mooi.
Ja en dan de Red Delicious. Ik kan niet anders zeggen dan Delicious! Wat een heerlijke kleuren!
Ik ga nog even verder rondstruinen hier. :)
