Material Obsession

as you probably figured out

I have a little material obsession ~ smile ~

my sweet colleagues back in the Netherlands got me this book as a good bye gift

it is a very pretty book with the most beautiful quilts by the Australian ladies Kathy Doughty and Sarah Fielke

and from the basis to high level quilting, they all explain it in this book with clear drawings

really, with this book there is absolutely no excuse for me not to start quilting right away

so when I visited a yardsale last week, I took this pile of Christmas fabrics with me

and now I have to wait a few weeks more until my sewing machine arrives from overseas

until then, I will crochet and knit a little, and eat a mini cupcake or two from the amazing Cupid's

it was a delicious but dangerous discovery we did today in Canada...

~ love ~


  1. Cupcakes look irresistible, wishing you nice week ahead enjoying crocheting, reading and discovering temptations!

  2. Yum, cupcakes zien er goed uit!! Balen dat je naaimachine er nog niet is.
    Groetjes, Esther.

  3. I have that book and I love it! What a great gift. Just throw yourself out there. Good luck on your quilting adventure!

    And again, green as the Grinch this time... How can you be so lucky finding all those gorgeous X-mas fabric? I want to find treasures like that too!!!

  4. Look like a lovely book!
