See these fabrics....I saw them yesterday and just had to buy them all! I had a picture of a tea house cozy in my head......

A pretty coincedent is that the colors are a perfect match with the new china!

Those fabrics are so gorgeously spring-like and delicious! And your house tea cosies are wonderful - I love the curtains at the window!

firstly, i love the fact that you see tea house cosies in the fabrics. when i look at fabric i see fabric!
secondly, how do i buy one of these - they are just gorgeous - do you sell them in your shop?
i especially loved the one in dutch fabrics, but i'm a sucker for all dutch things really.
I have to say, I think you are really clever Corry.
Cheers

Hey Corry,
It was good to hear from you!
I have your blog on my blog list favorites. I check every day or so to see what all my quilt bloggies are up to, but I have a naughty habit of not leaving comments.
Sorry, I know I should, but I need to get in the habit. I really enjoy your blog, it was among the first I read when I entered this virtual quilt world! The fabric colors you enjoy and use are stunning, so it is no wonder that all your little creations are so sweet. I promise to be a better blog friend and leave more comments when I visit! :-) ~Moorea

I love it. It is really neat how well it ended up matching the china. Even if it did not match the china it is still lovely. I just finished hand quilting a top. Isn't it a nice feeling to complete an item and be happy with how it turned out.

Super hoor, wat jij allemaal maakt!
Ik kreeg een paar weken geleden een oude naaimachine van iemand, maar kan er jammer genoeg niets mee. Als ik dit allemaal zie, zou ik liefst vandaag nog beginnen met het te leren. Heb jij geen tip hoe ik zoiets het beste aanpak?
