From head to bottom..

Let's start with the head first and work our way down.
This is my new device. (omg)
It's called a "Tinnitus breaker" and it produces a soft static noise. I'm supposed to wear it when the Beep starts to bother me again as a sort of contra sound. It could "neutralize" the Beep and the static noise is at least more pleasant to listen to than bééééééééép. I can try it for 3 months before I have to decide to keep it (or not). Luckily the holiday did me so good that the Beep is very, very calm. There are days that I almost don't hear it at all.

Next...my apron to be! I want to make myself a new apron. In fact, I want 2: one at home and one for work. I ordered this pattern..                                                                                                                                 
It is, however, a little tiny bit dissapointing. It has no pattern pieces (as I expected) for the bodice. But with the directions I think I cut it okay. The pattern also uses a single layer of fabric for the skirt and I'm definately going to make that a double layer, so it's lined.  Perhaps I'll even add a  ruffle!                                                                                    

Next topic is my progress on the Propeller quilt . One more row of blocks (allready cut them) and add some missing sashings. I handpieced this one, but I'll probably machinepiece a striped border.                                                                                            

The little circles are appliqued according to Crispy. She has tutorials on handpiecing and applique. Well. it's more like a manual and it's great. If you are a handpiecer or want to know how: this is the place to go..

I saved the best piece for last: another holidaypic
This ,my friends, is the best butt ever and it is ART! I also have a front pic, but I'll keep that one off my blog,
It's Michael Angelo's David, at least part of it. I saw the original statue in Florence and, no jokes here, it is really beautifull and more impressive than the copy that's outside on the square ( the pic is from the copy)

Okay, now let's attack that apron pattern!

  1. Ha ha! It's funny how a tight butt can make your day a bit brighter! Thanks for sharing the art!

    I definitely want to try Crispy's circle application tutorial. I've been putting off those circles because of lack of confidence. Her pics make it look doable!

  2. Oh Annemiek, your circles came out beautifully!!! I'm so glad the tutorial did the trick for you :0)

    The apron is great...unfortunatly I don't have a waist to make it look pretty ROFL.

    I hope your new appliance does the trick for the beeping....how annoying!!

    Last but not least, I LOVE the last photo, nothin' makes a girls heart sing like a tight behind :0)
