Lazy days are over!

All good things must come to and end eventually.....holidays are over and since today I had to go back to work. 7weeks of "dolce far  niente" sleeping in and binge-watching all seasons of Dr Who went by too quick.
Birmingham was fun, Quilting DD and I enjoyed the city, the pub and the Festival of Quilts.
I didn' t even got to it to put my pic's on the pc! But ofcourse I did photograph my "loot" on the iPad.
( i'm posting this on my ipad with the blogger app for the first time and i'm struggling a bit. Pics came out wrong, so I had to edit on the laptop. I'll get it eventually!)
TWO backings, a bundle of fun fq's and ofcourse a bundle of dots. 
The red backing is for my last top
(never mind the fresly ironed blouse on the right; blame it on the blogger app)
I sewed a little last week
And what might that be???? Well, they're burbcloths.....?!
The exiting news is that I'm going to be a grandma in january! Quilting DD is expecting her first baby...
Yep, there were three if us in Birmingham. Not even born and already at a big quilt event. Now that's hope for the future LOL!

Summer post..

 Don't know what happened to june ánd july, but I guess i just didn't feel like posting. When summerholiday finally started, I was lazyyyyyyy......!!!
I did, however, quilt and I sewed. Jeej!
For starters, I finished this

 And C got so inspired by Ms Lori Holt, that she drew a tulip herself, waiting for the book "quilty fun"to arrive. Since tulips are my fav flowers (how Dutch..) I made them into another mini.
Then, having loads of time on my hands, I spent quite some time on Pinterest where I found this design here. A radiant broken wheel, right up my alley!!
I had some solids left from Quilting DD's weddingring quilt, so here it is: my own RADIANT broken wheel!
I do have a batting for this one, but no backing fabric that suits. But no worries, my suitcase is packed for a trip to Birmingham. Festival of Quilts starts coming thursday and Quilting DD and I booked a flight. DH's are guarding the forts so off we will go!
