EQ layout

My friend Monika started to sew quilts for kids with special needs in her region. Two pretty quilts are finished already. She asked for easy ideas and I played in EQ 6 with the classic pattern Delectable Mountains, because it's easy to sew and has so many options.
Here are some layout's I got

great LiNK for scrapbooker

As some of you know, I'm a fairly new scrapbooker as well. I stamped many years ago when my DD was ~ 8 or 9 years and still have the stamps. Influenced by some "bad" German ladies here I got the bug.
Searching through the WWW I got to Alex' blog and she has a GREAT giveway ending on Sunday - so visit her blog and try to be the lucky winner

Again: new glasses

Due to a special price offer, I got new glasses today, totally different from the other optic

but I like them very much,
it's nice to have a chance to change the style

late pictures from my Xmas gift to my friend





See,
this happens when you play with this
tool -
great fun AND: it's free!!!

Monika got this quilttop and the additional fabric for the backside. I planned to made a complexer layout, but had to reduce the expense, due to timeproblems

Do you remember the turquoise quilt I sewed from the sewing themed fabrics I got from my Secret Pal (who is seriously ill right now - greetings, if you are reading my blog, my dear)
I sewed more blocks than I needed and Monika said: perhaps you'll get a quilt, to your 60th Birthday .......... I thought, why not now? I can do that - smile


Here are my first EQ ideas



and the result at the end, simpler ( sorry, Monika):

***** Gewonnen *****

YiPPiiiiiiii - das hat's ja noch nie gegeben - ständig lese ich auf den blogs, wer alles gewonnen hat. Diesmal bin ich die Glückliche! Gabriele hat beschlossen Ihren Bestand an Weihnachtsstoffen aufzulösen. Ja, auch ich schleppe noch uralte "Schätzchen" mit mir rum, von denen ich mich aber trotzdem nicht trennen möchte. Ich lebe ja in Stettin/Polen und wir veranstalten vor Weihnachten immer einen Basar, dessen Erlös einem lokalen Kinderheim zufliesst. Das sind stets gute Gelegenheiten, sich über den Fundus zu freuen.

Soeben erhielt ich eine mail von Gabriele, dass ich die Gewinnerin des 2. Weihnachtstoffpakerls sei.

UND welche Freude, es sind traumhaft schöne blaue Stöffchen dabei, über die ich mich besonders freue. Hab ich doch schon etliche Dear Jane Blöckchen in blauen Weihnachtstoffen genäht - da werd ich dann noch genügend Material für weitere Blöcke haben - das ist echt SUPER
DANKESCHöN Gabriele
Brigitte, die 2.
