It's been quite the busy week ...
In Belgium you can tell summer is winding down and everyone is keen to get back to quilting. A total of 12 ladies joined us for a fantastic quilting be on Tuesday - half the group used our new table in the classroom, the other half gathered in our kitchen. It was lovely ... but after a 5-week break speaking hardly any Nederlands I was exhausted. Darn, I forgot to take pictures. But I *promise* I will next month.
The shop also re-opened after our summer break so I've been busy getting the class schedule figured out and translated. It's quite a job but I think it's nearly finished. As soon as I can I'll provide a link where you can download it.
I'm also working on a really fun quilt-a-long idea involving dots - lots of dots! More soon, but in the meantime let this inspire you.
Unfortunately the biggest down-side to me being so busy is that Whisper is acting up ... you know I only ignore her and never play with her ... Yesterday I took her to the field behind our house .. it was gorgeous, the sun was shining, the cats were playing (going to the field is an all-family outing) and Whisper was in heaven. The nice thing is I have this video to make me smile all the times she's driving me up a tree.
Here are a few more pictures from our "outing." And there are a few more in my Flickr gallery.
The weather has taken a cooler turn and I'm loving it ... sweaters! Plus I can wear my wool vest with felted wool rose corsage - someday I'll write up a tutorial. They're a breeze to make and are lovely gifts.
The bad thing is that I'm feeling a bit yucky, that obligatory fall cold - but Axel's gone to get chinese for dinner - yummm, they make the best Chicken Soup.
The shop is open tomorrow so no sleeping in and Axel has to work all weekend (12 days straight - thanks UEFA). Hopefully I can hole up and stitch and just jump up when customers come in ... so I can finish a few Got Dots blocks to show you next week!
