this and that

Is it really December already?? I can't believe how fast this year has flown by. This is also the last page of my 'Lot van den Akker' calender. Next year I'll come with a new calender and new pages.


I had a small leftover block from the red and white quilt and turned it into a pincushion.
I think by now I have more pincushions than pins!
Notice the two vintage fabrics, aren't they lovely?

pincushion and vintage fabric

A few weeks back I told you about a small renovation going on here.
Well, the plaster and ceiling are done.
Now all we have to do is paint the walls and do the floor.
(And do the laundry!! )  To be continued ...

we're getting there

And before I go ending this post I happily put some flowers on the table.
Specially for you,  hope you love roses!


Thanks for all the nice feedback about my angel pattern.

Ik ben alweer benieuwd naar je nieuwe kalender! Maar wat vliegt de tijd toch! Zo kijk je uit naar het jaar 2000, zo zitten we alweer in 2010! Ik had zelfs nog geen tijd om te zeggen dat ook ik je engelpatroontje enig vind. Heerlijk zo'n wasruimte! Ik zie dat er nog wel wat bijkan ;-)!

Speldenkussen is echt geweldig! En nouja beter teveel speldenkussens dan geen!

Glad to see your building work is going well. Bet you will be very glad to get it all finished. Love your pin cushion. I just might have to make one...mine were just thrown together from plain fabric and one like yours would look rather better in my workroom. Unlike you I have lots more pins than pincushions :-)

That teapot filled with roses is lovely !I just bought two small bunches myself from the supermarket But I don't have a pip teapot to put them in !
Good luck with those renovations.

Cute pincushion! Looks like you have been working hard and thanks so much for the flowers they are just beautiful!

Happy Holidays!

Corry, love the roses, but you can keep them if I could have the teapot, grin. Is it so beautiful, and would fit so nice in with my collection of teapots, grin. BarbM

Love your floral teapot. So very pretty. The pincusion is so cute. Without pins in it, it would look just like a fluffy pillow!

Hi! My name is erica. Would you be my friend? said...

Pincushions are just too much fun...and I don't even use them! I have a little box for my pins. But I have some sitting around all the same...looking useful.

I just love that little pot!

The angle in the previous post is cute. Are you getting a new laundry room? If so it looks like it's going to be nice and spacious.

Supermooi plaatje, de roosjes in de PIP theepot! Succes met je verbouwing, het is eerst wel even doorbijten, maar daarna heb je wel wat!
Leuk speldenkussen ook, ik heb (helaas!) meer spelden dan speldenkussens, hahaha! Ik ben steeds van plan om er ook eens een paar te maken, maar het lijkt er wel niet van te komen. Staat op m'n oneindige lijstje van to-do!

I love the christmas quilt. I hope that I can get one made for next year. As it is I am working on an country Angel quilt right now and it is going slow. Love your posts. It is so good to visit.
