Finished before the end of 2010!!

So last post wasn't really last post! Yesterday I managed to finish the top of my Baltimore Bliss Quilt. In order to make it into a kingsize bedquilt I added white blocks. I am going to quilt those white blocks in a coordinating pattern, but I haven't decided yet how. I think I will follow the original blocks, but I have to figure out how to bring th pattern on to the fabric. Now, without further ado, here issss ..... Baltimore Bliss!!

Only thing left for this year is wishing all my visitors a happy, healthy, wonderful 2011! Stay safe and warm and see you next year :)

Last post 2010?

Did you all have a Merry Christmas? I hope so, our family did have a good time with the traditional walk in the woods and the traditional dinner together. Now for a few days back to normal until we're heading to New Year's Eve.

This will be probably the last post of 2011 and I have something to show again. A small one, but a finish! The Raven's Roost by The Goode Huswife. I already added it to my list of Up for a Challenge, but last week it just stitched so quickly that I could finish it this morning.

Most of my stitching time I spent on my Baltimore Bliss. I managed to finish all the blocks now and last Friday I went shopping for some fabric for borders and sashings. I hope to assemble the top before the end of the year.

Holland Springtime, Baltimore and möbius

Two weeks holidays! Yeah!! I spent my day well, I finished block 10 of the Baltimore, a möbiusscarf is finished and I have some progress on Holland Springtime.

Block 10 of Baltimore Bliss, two more to go, before I can go shopping for fabrics for the sashings, border and the backing.

As it is cold and snowy weather I didn't feel the need to go outside, even the picture of a little blackbird is taken from my livingroom ;)

The möbius is a simple quick crocheted one. It is finished in a few hours and I can do this anywhere, even behind my computer, strolling the web for blogs to read :)

And another crocheted scarf just made in one hour, even quicker than the möbius!

Today ...

I will meet the 10.000th visitor on my blog within a year! I want to thank all my visitors for reading my whereabouts and looking at my pictures. And of course a big thank you to all the visitors who left a comment! I read them with joy and without your response I wouldn't have been blogging with so much pleasure. Thank you!

Finished scarf

Did I tell you last time it was winter? Well, it was! We had snow, cold, and slippery weather. And I fell off my bike! Trying to avoid a confrontation with a lady who crossed the street unexpectedly I fell down on my knees. No, not for admiration of the lady LOL. It hurt that much that the day after I went to the hospital to have an x-ray taken. Lucky me, my knee is not broken.

Because I couldn't go dancing this week, I sat down to knit after work. My scarf is ready! Now it is pinned flat to shapen it and tomorrow I can wear it :)

Wow, it is really winter! This week all of a sudden there was a cold wind, making me long for hot chocolate and warm woollen scarfs. So, apart from stitching on my Chatelaine Holland Springtime ...

... I made a moebius scarf. And what is more, I crocheted this one! I think the last time I did some crocheting was in my childhood. Proving my device: "whatever you learn, it is yours forever!"

I am looking quite concentrated, but did you ever try to take a picture of yourself in the mirror without showing the camera? And without your pair of glasses, which you wear all the time?

I also did some quilting on my Red Delicious. Things are going slow but steady :)
