cross stitch

Yesterday I went to a meeting day of MERKWAARDIG
the dutchsampler org.
People can sell secondhand books etc.
and you meet other cross-stitchers.
There was a lady selling small cross stitch pieces.
I bought these two.

And there was a show and tell.
These two samplers are made by Corrie
over 1 thread with 1 thread.

Sometimes I like to make small quilts.
This one I finished yesterday.
I bought the patttern and kit,
in Brielle the name of the shop is Quiltgebeuren.

I made it by hand, the size is 15.5x19 inch.

Yesterday evening we had a quiltmeeting.

I finished my basketquilttop.
The patern is from Bonnie Blue Quilts and Block Base.
I made it with my own fabric.
I first want to make it in blue, but the result was dull,
so I put red in it.
One block has 7 baskets( 4 small baskets and 3 the normal size.)

My friend Yael had finished the basket quilt from moda.

best wishes and saartje

First I wish everybody a creative, healthy 2012.

In december I went to the vet with my cat Saartje.
She had a cold and became verry skinny.
she had an echo,
it came out that she had a tumour in her intestines( darmen in dutch)
she had her operation the 14th.
You cannot believe, but the next day she was fine, if nothing happened.
they checked the tumor it is cancer.
I don't want any chemo, so I hope the best and
that she will be fine for a while.
