Time for .... Bee blocks

 number one:
 I finished up some bee blocks ... This wonky star is so much fun to make ... (this is Euro Bee Group - for Isabel) Each of us made a different pattern!
number 2:

This one is for Euro Bee Block Group - Leah wanted Bento Box blocks - a new pattern for me :)

number 3:
Then I decided I should have some blocks for my Euro Bee quilt  too and started two - and I still have to sew the appliques on - so sorry - still no picture:(

number 4:
Oh - and not to forget - I was VERY occupied with the Quilting Journey Round Robin Bee group. We are 20 women, each has made a journal and a sampler block - these two things go from one to the other - a circle at the end of the journey. The concept sounded to interesting that I ha it was SO hard to decide what kind of blocks I want them all to make. ...

One colour blocks, with solids and prints - this will look great - I´m sure! So each one does one block in the favourite colour and write or draw in my journal - and the send it to the next one ....

number 5:
The next thing which took much time was cutting the strips for the spiderweb block swap:

Unfolding and refolding, cutting and ironing .... my hubby has cut the strips for me - that was a big help! I have prepared the paper triangles, cut the white fabric for the middle - now I have to sew ....

That was it! No more Bees or swaps - in June I have a show coming up, the next in July, .... enough to do though!

Ich hatte die letzte Zeit wenig Lust zu schreiben (und unsere Internetver- und telefonverbindung hat immer wiedser ausgesetzt - macht sehr wenig Spass) .... habe aber einige Quilt Blöcke für verschiedene Gruppen fertiggemacht! Ich glaube, ich bin in genug Gruppen - mehr geht nicht, sonst komme ich in Verzug:)
Im Juni bin ich auf dem Rodenmarkt in Mössing, im Juli auf dem Kreativ-Markt in Pfullingen, ... ich bin - denke ich - ausreichend beschäftigt!

Yesterday I made a custom order: Christmas in May - she ordered a fabric garland! "Frohe Weihnachten" - merry christmas - it´s good to be prepared! Can you see the letter "i"?? - there´s a lovely little santa claus on it - I KNEW I can use this fabric one day - lol (I have ordered it some time ago - just because it´s so cute)

Das Bild ist leider etwas blass geworden - die Sonne fehlt!!! "Frohe Weihnachten" im Mai - eine Kundenbestellung - es ist doch gut, wenn man rechtzeitig plant:) Das "i" hat einen Weihnachtsmann als Motiv - den Stoff hatte ich vor einiger Zeit gekauft - nur weil er so süß war - tja - nun passts!!!

On Sunday I´m (we) on vacation - jipiiee - see you in June!!

Ab Sonntag sind wir in Urlaub!! Anfang Juni bin ich wieder da!


Time for .... finishing up some WIPs

This week a new eZine started!! Fatquarterly: if you haven´t : take a look: so lovely and inspirational! They really did a great job!

I made a pillow cover right away - with half square triangle flying geese ... I had those aside, left over from my first quilt .. so perfect for a little project! They did a great tute for these flying geese - so easy!
AND I did stippling ... yeah! And this pillow cover is my entry for a giveaway on the eZine :) (I couldn´t resist winning some fabric.....)

For the back I used some IKEA fabric- just because there is a goose on it!!!!!

I will definitly do some projects with this pattern ....

Another project this week was a new purse for my friend Buket - she wanted a new one (individual, handmade, special, unique,....) because on Monday she´s leaving for Turkey on a project week... We created one together - that was so much fun :)
Take a looK:

"Her lovliness from Elmstreet": the curderoy was her husbands suit (He still doesn´t know about this....:) inside this cuteness is (of course) a zipper pocket, the bag is closed with a magnet. The green tape was handcrocheted by her mother (who sadly died this year). Buket will add tomorrow some embelishments ... tüdelü-Kram we say in German :) I`m in love with her hair ... some wonderful glossy embroidery thread in orange!
The pillow is another monaw/bukiby project! "delicious fish..." - oh you can´t see this poor guy.
He´s a little sad ....

Today my hubby helped me cutting the strips for the spiderweb block swap .... but we have a lot more to cut ...
