take it slow

What have I been doing since friday...well not much really.

trims & ribbons box before trims & ribbons box after

I sorted out my trims & ribbons box.
I spent two days in bed, sick!
I made two more flowers for the flowergarden dollquilt.

I found three house blocks made from scraps (they were hiding in the scrap box).

One day they will end up in a quilt like this one below!

playhouses from the book "little quilts"

Well that's about it, I'm not planning on doing much more this week!
Only one thing... reading blogs, many blogs, I'm way behind!

p.s. And for those who still wonder what the pink peek from a few posts back was, and haven't seen it on Nicolette's blog, yet. Inspiration came from a painting Nicolette made for me.

Corry, I have that book about the Little Quilts! Had to go get it out and look at it again after reading your post. Adorable stuff in there. I just sorted my trims last week. It really is nice, isn't it? ..being about to go and find things. Hope you perk up soon!

There must be something in the air, I was home today looking after poorly daughter and I had a yarn and needle sort out. I love the houses. The more blogs I read the more inspiration I get, now I just need the skills to go with it!

I love your tidy ribbon box! And the bird you made for Nicolette is gorgeous! And as for those blocks - they will be perfect for my next swap! (I am planning a doll quilt swap for next month - please say you will play!!!!)

Corrie said...

Corry, het is zo'n plezier om je weblog te lezen en al die heerlijke vrolijk gekleurde foto's te zien van alles wat je maakt. Zo ook bij Heleen, ik jullie beide op bloglijst gezet, zodat ik alleen maar even hoef te klikken om weer iets moois te zien.

Elly said...

Wat geeft dat een voldoening hè, als alles weer lekker opgeruimd en gesorteerd is! En vaak zie je zo ook weer wat je allemaal hebt (meestal meer dan je denkt!). Wel verveldnd dat je ziek geweest bent, hopelijk ben je nu weer helemaal op de been!
Die vogel is echt helemaal fantastisch!!!!

I love your new house blocks, you have 1/4 of the quilt done. That pink birdie is the sweetest thing....I want one, I'll have to try and figure out how you made it.

Sorry to hear you've been sick, Corry. Hope you're feeling better.

Wow! Look at all those pretty trims all neat and organized.


Your pink bird is so sweet and what a wonderful gift for Nicolette.

I love the trims in your box. I've always loved trim. When I lived in Germany I had a cape that had lots of beautiful trim and my daughter had a little, bitty cape with trim.

I received the heart I bought from your shop today and the workmanship on it is PERFECT!! There's not one thread out of place. I'm really fussy and I'd give you an A+++ on this.
Feel better and enjoy your blog reading.
