LK exchange for Melissa

I'm very relieved that my exchange piece arrived safely. Christmas time is a time to share with family and friends and to give each other gifts, but we are not allowed to add some extra so I made a special gift with the LK stitching piece for Melissa. Fortunately she likes it.
Wish you all a happy weekend full of joy.

A little bit of October

The autumn arrives with fantastic colours and berries. Taking care of my family, some of whom are ill so there is only a little bit time to stitch so forgive me for not blogging.
Still stitching for the exchanges and Christmas orni's. I shipped out the LK exchange piece but can't show you yet.

This one is for LHN exchange and it already arrived. So look at Holly and Berries. I was a little bit early with sending it to my partner because I don't want it to get lost during the busy Christmas time. The design is stitched on Zweigart Vintage brown and using the recommended DMC colours. If you make the picture larger then you can see the beads I used instead of the cross-stitches. So glad my partner likes it.

And of course I go to my Stitcherie and quilting lessons. Here Patti, this is my first quilt. I have made this twice (9 patch) so I have to make twice eight patches too. I chose stitcherie too because I want to combine it with quilting. This is my first basket, still two to go.

My daughter and I went to the Handwerkbeurs in Rotterdam. We did not have much time but I'm so happy to have found the new chartbook of BBD. The charts looks great although there is one mistake at page 15. Look at the third chart, it's the same as the second one. I wrote Alma and she was very fast with the correction. You can find the link on her blog.

Thanks for stopping by, I really appreciate your comments.
