It has been a long time since I wrote on my blog. A lot has happened these last months. We have closed our shop at the end of December, the results got worse due to this recession and we decided we could better stop. Due to this my son lost his job and home and it was very difficult to find a new place to live for him. Last week he moved into his new home, only I haven't been able to help because I got ill, at first it looked like I got pneumonia again (have had it 3x before)but luckely it is only a bad cold, hopefully it will get better soon. In December I decided to join Sharon Boggon's TAST 2012 (Take A Stitch Tuesday). With the busy program from the last weeks I started with the Feather Stitch of week 3, here you see the results.

In the last post I already showed you the first Journal Page I made for the Crazy Quilt Journal Project 2012. The challenge I made myself for January was to work with plaids in a CQ block, so I used Scottish tartans. For February I decided to work with novelty fabric and bling bling. I have already used the Cretan Stitch (TAST nr. 4) on this block, the rest I'll show you when the page is finished!
Winter in Holland has started today with the first snow, temperatures will be -8 o C this night.

Wilma, It sounds like you could use some good luck! I'm wishing it for you and am glad it was just a cold. You are doing great on the TAST challenge. I've been following along but not really working on it much.
