On Saturday I am flying to Glasgow for a walking vacation together with quilting friends from England, Denmark, Italy, Holland and Canada for a week. You can imagine that I am really looking forward to that! We will stay all together in a lodge in Fort William, close to the Ben Nevis. More information of this region you can find on:
When there we will play a Chinese dice game and everyone had to make a little quilt for that as rememberance of the trip. My friend Imi found these "handsome Scottish men" on the Internet and I decided to make a little redwork from it, it is A4 paper size.
See you again in one week!

DYB round robin, block 3

Here is a picture of the block I embellished for Ati in Norway, her theme is Chinese Tea. I decided to embroider a Chinese Tea jar, hope she'll like it. The colors are a bit strange on the picture, I tried to use all the colors that are already in the block, like red, yellow, blue and gold to get the right harmony.
