and once again I was sick in bed!I was so happy to have 5 days free from work and of course at Saturday before Christmas I started having the flu, went to bed and was a bit better on Wednesday so I could join hubby, son, mother and mother-in-law for Christmas dinner on the 26th!
That way I didn't manage to do much CQ but I have finished the SOH Winterblock for Courtney, it was sent out yesterday to Gerry, you can see pictures from the unfinished block on Nov. 28th.
Also I want to show you some pictures of winter in the Netherlands.
Last week we had some very cold days with a little bit of snow. The pictures are made close to our home. We like to walk with the dog around this lake which takes about an hour.
Sorry for the small size of letters, but blogger is acting strange and doesn't change it to bigger!

Sunday we have decorated our Christmas tree. It is mostly decorated with old ornaments that I got from my grandmother, mother and MIL.
The white clock with the stars and the white ball with dots I have bought together with my parents when I was a little child. I could choose a new one each year. The small ornaments in the top were all from my grandmother Wilhelmina.

Year 2000 quilt

Because I can't show you any CQ project at this moment, here some pictures of my year 2000 quilt. It's handmade and handquilted and has 1999 different fabrics. Found that there was a double one after the quilt was finished.......

I am working on a Crazy Quilt at this moment for the exhibition of the Dutch Quiltersguild in September 2008 in my hometown Arnhem, have to finish it before February 1st., so a lot of work to do for me. Can't show you any pictures I am sorry!
