after two tries without luck - I hope this one will go through:
have been so lazy with blogging, ladies
I traveled via Lüneburg to visit my daughter in Düsseldorf, spent a relaxing weekend at our Retreat in the hilly region Bergisches Land, met close friends and had a good time. Gabi cooked a Bengali meal especially for me (I love it!) and showed her fabrics she bought in California, Sabine invited the beading girls, Anglika served my favorite soup (Graupensuppe). Brigitte was also there, that was very special to me to show them the Dear Jane x-stitchery framed - just fantastic days!
On the way home I picked up my friend Monica and we enjoyed our company some days in my fantastic studio before her husband arrived to celebrate my Birthday here with us. I got fantastic gifts and realized to be one year older now :-(
Next day 13 German women visited to have a "Kuchenschlacht" - hard to translate for me. I offered a lot of different cakes and we had a nice afernoon. Luckily my dog was very friendly with so many people and two kidds, trying to kiss her ;-)
On the quilting front nothing really extraordinary happend, but I made some progress on my Baby. Together with Monika we found out how to sew some different blocks, so I finished Hunter's Moon and Parchesi -
next post will be pictures just to show two of them.
