Hearts and hands for Sendai

When I heard about the earthquake in Japan I immediately thought about my Crazy Quiltfriends Hideko and Emiko. Luckely we heard from both of them after a few days and
they are both OK although very worried about their family and relatives.

I am participating in a project dedicated to helping those affected by the earthquake and tsunami disaster in Japan.
This project is open to the quilting community at large, so if you are interested, have a look here at the blog of CQI (Crazy Quilting International).
Hideko is one of the listmoms of this quiltgroup.
You can see the blocks that are already made over here.
Please join if you can, our help is needed for our Japanese CQ sisters!

Spring has definitely come!! Yesterday twins are born in the meadow in front of our home, aren't they cute?The weather is getting better, it was 14 o C today, although it is still freezing at night. The birds
have started singing again early in the morning and the daffodils start to bloom, it is good to see the nature awake!

Austrian Crazy QuiltMaybe you remember I am working on this Crazy quilt made from mainly traditional fabrics, that I got for my birthday from Helen in Austria. She challenged me to make a little quilt of these fabrics and kept the other half of the fabrics to make one herself.
These are the blocks I made for it, they are 6"each.I am trying to get this quilt finished to take with me to the USA for Show and Tell. These are a few of the additions I did this week. I have not much spare time, have been to Germany this week to buy spring/summer cloths for our shop, doing the bookkeeping in the evening and of course I am also still working 24 hours a week at the vacation parc for disabled.
In a moment back to work again because our shop is opened from 12.00 - 17.00 on the first Sunday of the month. It will be busy because there is a carnival procession (hope this is the right word in English, think you will know what I mean) in town, luckely the weather is OK, sunny but cold, about 3 o C. Have a nice Sunday!
