Purchase via my personal shopping witch

Some months ago I asked on a Yahoo Group for help to get a special issue of an American Magazine. Carrie (no blog) offered to help the same day. AND she offered to shop for me anytime in the states, what she did now, again BTW. Glad to have such a nice witch, YES I called her my shopping witch, because she lead me into temptation several times - smile
Actually she is in Paducah at the big AQS Show and once more she is hunting for some goodies for me. Would love to be there on my own, but that wasn't possible.

Today her last envelope arrived with the fabric I choose for the triangles of my Baby Jane


She spoiled me with some EXTRAs:
stamps and lovely Label fabric, including a very pretty "friends" magnet




THANK YOU so much, Carrie!!!

Easter present from Monika

This year my best friend Monika surprised me with a (nearly) complete quilt. Couldn't believe it: it's called "bestest friends"










I love it, there was just some quilting needed and it is done, ready to get a nice place.
Vielen Dank Moni,
jetzt wird ein schönes Plätzchen für das gute Stück gesucht!

Schnibbles spools

I got a nice pattern for spools and remembered the folded spools I teached moons ago. The quilt I'm sewing for me is in the quilting phase, but the little wallhanging for my personal shopping witch Carrie arrived the new owner yesterday, so I can show the picture here:



I'm glad she like it
( see Carrie's comment .....
that was my first thought, when you wrote you put the pic down - smile )

finished UFOs

While I'm prepairing my traveling (starting next week) I'm making lists: what to pack for the Retreat, the time at my friend Monika's home and the time at Ulrike's house. I searched through my drawers to find my UFOs at first and the list was growing and growing. NO, I don't tell you how many I count actually -
BUT I started to make the final stitches on 2 projects. Here comes the first:

it is a paperpieced top, I got from Monika - long time ago, shame on me
But now it's ready to find a nice spot on the wall - DANKESCHöN Moni, und bitte verzeih, dass es sooooo lange gedauert hat.

BTW:
the second UFO is handquilted and the binding is just to sew by hand on the backside. Insider (Monika) knows: I hate it .... but you'll see the result soon
