Just realized that I did not show the tags I received in our tag swap - duh! Will have to do that.
This however is the tag book I sewed for those tags I received and sewed for myself since they were so much fun to make. However, I gave it away as a present to a member in the art4card group as a thank you together with some tags. Since I liked the book as it is I will make one with the same picture for myself.
This is the quilt for Lea Sophie - she is such a cute little girl I would have liked to keep her the first time her mother brought her around. Roses seem to be the right choice for a romantic mother and a beautiful little girl.
Now there is still a quilt to sew for a little boy who is due early December. No roses there although the mother is easily as romantic as mother number 1. I opted for simple rectangles with applied hearts in bold colors and will have to hurry to get it finished in time.

Winter really took us by surprise. One of these days we were still enjoying sunshine and beautiful colors, and then all of a sudden temperatures dropped, an awful wind kept blowing for three days in a row, snow set in - imagine, early November! - and all those marvellous leaves were gone.
My view from the dining room door is now bleak, grey and uninviting, the golden sentinel all but invisible having been robbed of its glorious golden leaves.

At last success! This quilt made third place in a challenge titled "nostalgia" by the German magazine "Patchwork-Ideen" that takes place every other year. I have been juried into this challenge four times and finally - bingo! There is not much that could make me happier - except perhaps my new embellisher I have been experimenting with the last two days....
