overdue updates

Is it really that long ago that I wrote my last blogpost? Time flies...
I have been busy nonetheless, I just forgot to write about the projects (and to take photos in some cases).
So here we go:
First the projects I finished for Christmas:

A bowtie quilt for my grandparents. My gandma expecially likes how the backing goes with their carpet which summarizes quite well how the orange does not work with the rest. A lesson learned...
I made a weighed pincussion organizer with this tutorial for my mum.

A few days before Christmas I finally finished the top for the sew.quilt.give bee. Jenn was so nice to make it into a quilt and even made a second babyquilt with the spare blocks.
I did not take any photos and accidently deleted her mail with hers, so no photos now.

In February was my grandpa's birthday. To my grandma's regret he is a lover and collector of stamps. I made him a sheath to transport stamps. It looks like a pencil case and I worked along some tutorials on the net. In the end it was quite hard to make because I used a lot of heavy interfacing to make it sturdy and to protect the stamps.
Uh, and there are so many projects in the making and in planning that there will be more news coming!

I'd like to hear from you
