Another CQ block finished......

The American flag fabric I bought some years ago during a vacation in Orlando at Joann's. I added some red velvet, white satin and blue silk, I also picked the embellishments in these colours. Think this block will become a great memory when coming back from my trip to the Adventure in Crazy Quilting!

Some weeks ago I received a badge to decorate for the Adventure in CQ in april. To be honest I am not that fond of pastels, so I decorated it yesterday in "Dutch"colours and this is the result.Also I picked the threads and embellishments for my "Egyptian" Crazy Quiltblock. In my stash I found some Oya flowers (on the right on the picture) made by Rengin in Turkey, I think they will look great on the block!

For my lessons with Sharon Boggon in April I have to bring two 8 inch crazy quiltblocks. This is the first one I made this week.At first I didn't know what colours to choose, but then I saw the revolt against President Mubarak in Egypt on TV and I remembered a little piece of this "Egyptian" fabric in my stash.
I have added fabrics in gold, turquoise, middle and dark brown and dark red to it.
Tomorrow I am going to search for embellishments in this colours. It is bitter cold again here in Holland and even some snow is expected. Weather to stay inside on your free Sunday..........

The last fabric pages...
I was behind with making this fabric page for November for Lise in Denmark. Her theme is (as you can imagine....LOL) doors. It is called "a rainy day".
I sewed some iridescent beads to it for raindrops, it is hard to see on the picture. The next page is the february page for Claudia in Austria. She asked for a landscape and I made her Dutch tulip fields. Maybe you remember I made almost the same for Margreet. Now this serie of fabric pages is finished and I will receive the last page around the 15th also. Also I have to decide to make a fabricbook of them or not. The pages are hanging on the wall of my sewingroom and look so great together......
Also I like to show you my new teapot and mugs, just started collecting this "Pip"dinnerware
in my favorite turquoise color. I love it!
