Hi! How are you? I hope you had the best ever Christmas with your family and friends and hope you got lots of tasty presents!
We were spending most of the time relaxing at home, by sewing and eating the goodies we got from Santa!
With Hanna we got some really tasty yummies from my dear doggie friend Ronja who lives far away in Finland! She sent to us duck strips and tuna bites! I just couldn’t hold myself not to taste them behore the Christmas Eve!
I have made two new mini quilts with lovely sweet colours! They look so much spring! Hmmm … I have to admit that my sewing assistant helpped me a little bit.
I have prepared the dream quilt for quilting …
I want to hug you because you were so helpful and gave to me great ideas how to quilt this! Thank you so much! Yesterday evening I managed to begin the quilting and stitiching … but hhmmm … did you really mean that I should stitch each and every fish???
I was thinking that you don’t mind if I quilt first every second fish … and then If I have still patience, I may quilt the rest of them. How that sounds? But you know – it looks so beautiful that I know I am going to stitch every single fish and you can just guess how wonderful they look on the back side!
Now I want to tell you how fantastic idea my blog friend Laura had! Laura is writing a lovely blog ‘Quokka Quilts’ and she is hosting the best ever blog party!!! We have to make a fat quarter bundle of our favourite fabrics and we can win fabric … a lot of fabric! Sponsor is the wonderful, our favourite fabric shop :‘The Fat Quarter Shop’!!! So go to choose your favourite bundle … if you can! I was thinking that this is now my chance to have also a lesson to learn more about fabrics and designers, so I need a lot of time to go through all of them and then somehow try to choose!
Outside it’s gloomy … cold, cloudy and rainy, but these little rosies didn’t mind! With these sweet flowers I send you my warm thanks for your important and unique support during all this year! I am very touched thinking how amazing and wonderful friends I have around the world! Even I hope to see you still before ‘the New Year’, I want to wish you all the best, helth, love and luck for the New Year 2012!!!
Yours TEJE & NERO
