Started a new Crazy Quilt block!
The needlebook and pincushion that I made last month for the White Elephant swap are in my favorite colors, I especially love turquoise and hot pink.
That is why I decided to make a CQ block in these colors for myself also. I am feeling better and am getting back my energy and concentration bit by bit luckely. It will take some more time to come over this burnout but I am happy that I feel like stitching again. I am now busy embroidering the seams of this block. I am working with some of the beautiful threads I bought from my friend Lorraine from Canada. The piece of the doily in the upper right corner is also dyed by her.

She dyes the threads herself in wonderful variegated colors
and sells them on Etsy. Click here and you'll go to her shop called LES Designs.

Here some examples of the beautiful threads, they are in made of perle cotton and twisted silk. I'll keep you updated of the progress of my block!
The weather here in Holland is better then normally at this time of year, not that much rain and temperatures around
18 o C. This is a picture of yesterdays evening glow at the back of my garden.
 Hope the weather will stay like this for a while so I can keep going for a ride on my E bike every day.....
