A NEW CHALLENGE.....
My birthday buddy this year was Helen from Austria. She has sent me this lovely Trachten fabrics from Tusman and matching metallic yarn and shiny threads. She knows I like traditional fabrics very much, when she was in Holland some years ago we made a trip to Staphorst together, a little (religious) town here in Holland where a lot of people are still wearing their traditional costume.
Helen has the same amount of fabric and she challenged me to make something of it before the end of the year. Of course I accepted the challenge, I don't need more UFO's at this moment..........LOL Did I tell you that on the last meeting of my quiltbee I won the prize for the one with the most UFO's??

And just how many UFO's did you have? The fabrics are lovely!

What a lovely gift. I know you will put it to good use. Especially since you don't need another UFO. LOL.

Oh, and Happy Birthday!
