Reading other blogs is one of my favourite things to do. Since I discovered them just a few months back, a whole new world is open up for me. Especially the blogs about crafts our such an inspiration. So when I saw some cakes on the turkeys feathers blog, I immediately wanted to make them. Her link to the tutorial on crafster made me very happy. These cute little cakes are the result! I wrapped them up and now they are waiting as a present to give away.
Sssttt, they don’t now yet, but they probably wait forever. I like them too much myself!!

Today I went to a fair called "creative above 50". People show their hobby’s and crafts with real enthusiasm. It’s amazing how many different hobby’s are out there, and how creative the people are. I bought these stockings. I can tell that they are knit, but don’t ask me how! But they sure are lovely and warm on my feet.

I started this charm quilt about 10 years ago. I still working on it so now and then. But mostly it lay’s in the closet for months, or even a whole year. It’s not that I don’t like it anymore, but I have so much other projects going on. And I try to use every kind of fabric once. That means I need lots and lots of different scraps of fabric and sometimes I just don’t have enough. If I see a nice fabric I take the scissors and cut a little corner out. So everybody is warned!!
I use fabrics of the same colourrange to make the stars. And use the light fabrics to connect the stars together.
I sew the quilt by hand using backing papers, see photo above. It's real time consuming.
This is the back of the quilt. If everything is sew together I take the papers out.
Another little problem is that I haven't decided yet how exactly the borders should end. Do I use half stars to make it square? Our use a solid colour?
If somebody has any idea how to make an end to this quilt please let my know!

This star is made from the same pattern that I used for the star quilt in my blog's header . It's a keyhanger, and it looks real nice on the cabinet,(we call it servieskast in dutch). The starquilt is not yet finished,(i have a little problem with it!). I talk about that another time. Maybe someone can give me the solution!

I believe I'm the only one who visits this blog. That's oké, because I have to admit, it still feels a little bit awkward to have one. I made a picture header on top of my blog, and wow was that a challange. It took me some time but now I know a lot more about html, settings and templates . It's fun to play with, I change colors and fonts again and again to see the effect of it. So don't be surprised if you decide to visit me for a second time, there is a chance that things look differend!!
