A colleague´DH had to be in the States for business and he brought me a WS cakepan. It is the train exclusive and it looks great. The boys really like it and yesterday evening we made some cakes. This was the result before I cut off some excess cake.

And this was the result after we turned over the cakepan. They look gorgeous. OK, I will admit that they will look better decorated, but I didn´t have anything at home, so it is just cake. They boys took the cakes with them to their daycare mum to share with the other kids.


So we know now, the pink quilt it is... Lotte is born, she is a beautiful little girl with red hair (doesn´t really show on the picture). This picture shows her and her proud mum. We brought the quilt last Sunday and hope that she is cosy underneath it.

They arrived !

This morning when I looked outside to the mailbox, I saw something sticking out. It turned out to be the envelop with my fabric blocks that I ordered from the Fat Quarter shop.

The fabrics are gorgeous and I can´t wait to start a new project. But first I have to finish my spring quilt for the 4 season quilt swap. At the moment I am quilting it, so it shouldn´t be to long before I finish it and it will be on it´s way to it´s new home.

Doll swap

Through the website of Ravenhill I found out about a doll swap that is organised by Chloe of Meecrafty. You can go over to Chloe´s blog if you would like to sign up for the swap too! Signup closes on Saturday, April 19th. I think this will be a great swap.

Finished !

I finished my two baby quilt, one for a boy, one for a girl, since we don´t know the sex of the baby for who this quilt is intended.

The blue one is made ofall different blues and greens that I had in my stash and the back is a white with blue flowers kind of Delft´s blauw kind of fabric.

The girl version is pink with greens and the back is an orangish pink with fabric flowers sewn to it. I think they both turned out OK and now we have to wait until teh baby presents itself.

She arrived!

This lovely little lady ws waiting for me when I got home. It was a long day at work and paid a visited to my parents who returned from a trip to Germany after work, so I came in late.
And there she was, wrapped in a nice little parcel. The colors don´t do her justice, but she is wonderful. I bought her from Rosehip. Beata from Rosehip makes wonderful matroyshka dolls.
And this little lady is very welcome in our home.

Today I was inspired by Erleperle´s blog. I saw the gorgeous Swell quilt that she made and I went over to the Fat Quarter Shop to order some fabrics. So I ordered these packs:

I think I will make a quilt for myself with the Flirtations fabric, I like the red, pink and brown combination. will have to wait until they arrive at my home. But I think you can make a great quilt out of these fabrics. Since I am making teh baby quilts I am inspired to quilt again. It has been since I made Peter´s birth quilt, but I have found back my inpiration, so I will try to continu this moment.

24 weeks and going...

This week, we pasted the 24 weeks mark. The baby is moving quite strongly so that is a good sign. I had a glucose challenge test done this week, to see if I have pregnancy diabetes, will know if there is a problem next monday, but I think everything is OK. So I am not expecting a phone call from the doctor.

Work is keeping me very busy, so I haven´t found time to do much craftwork. Yesterday I put the binding on the pink and green baby quilt I started last weekend. No time to soon, because the due date of the baby I am making it for is next tuesday. Hopefully it is a girl, other wise I have to make a new one... We will see. But yesterday afternoon I started a boy version with blues and greens.
Helas, for some reason I can´t seem to download pictures from my camera to my computer, so I have no pics this time, will have to see what the problem is. When I can I will publish pics of my latest achievements.
