do you know Shadow Trapunto?

While I searched via the worldwideweb once I got to Geta's Quilting Studio's blog and was fascinated from her designs. So I asked for patterns, now she just gave birth to her first pattern e-book. To celebrate this big moment she is offering great giveaways!!!! I do hope to be one of the lucky winners ;-) but the price of the e-book is just 12$, that's not too bad

something OLD, something NEW

Nearly 10 days agos I made the last ride with my beloved "Fabia" to its buyer and took a picture at the Polish-German border.
here I said officially GOOD BUYE
I was a little bit sentimental at that time .... I know, it's just material, but I think even a car has a kind of personality - AND, I liked the Fabia, not only because of the "Better finished than perfect" sticker ;-)

Today I had another special moment:

I got my very first own new car - TADA - it's a SEAT iBiZA

After one hour of instructions I started just around the corner to my friend Ulrike, who surprisd me with champagne. Christel also celebrated the first kilometer with me.


Luckily the maiden voyage was without any events

and my first impression is:
I am really very lucky with my new car !!!!
********** thank you so much, Peter ************

As you can see, we had a lot of fun !!!
Nothing is better than time spent with friends ....

I have to confess: we had some delicious icecream afterworth


and I made some cards: I made more, but forgot to take pictures ....


Birthday card for my daughter's 21th

framed

sorry for the long silence -
I don't have a special reason, just too many things going on in our daily life.

My friend Monika gave me a wonderful christmaspresent: my monogramm stitched with tiny angels watching over me ( we all need these angels from time to time )

Now this beauty got framed - do you like my decicion?


I also framed a nice little picture
to escort the stitchery
Monika also stitched her own monogramm,
isn't she a very talented embroiderer?
