Anja's bear on the left and Hanneke's bear on the right. Cute aren't they?
The next teddy bear workshop was soon after the previous one and here Corine is sewing hers on one of my Singer featherweights.
Lucy is working hard on her teddy bear too and
The yellow one on the left is made by Corine and the one on the right is made by Lucy. If you click on her name you see more pictures of her bear with his lovely, new knitted pants.
Thank you ladies for taking part in the teddy bear workshops and I'm very proud of you having made such lovely teddy bears!

The little quilt on this bed is this one. The pattern is called: 'hidden nine patch or disappearing nine patch'
It is a fun and easy pattern to work with.
I made this doll from a Tilda book in january 2010. Her body fabric is stretchy so she is a little bit bigger than she is supposed to be but that is all right with me.
ps. the bed meassures:
length: 57cm by width: 33cm
Have a nice day!

Today a sneak peak in my sewingroom, not big, but lots to see!
This first picture shows my sewing table with red and white plastic tablecloth fixed (with a staple gun) on top. For storing little things, I used jam jars also with red and white checkers. I screwed the lids on the underside of the narrow Ikea shelf.
magnet strip (in Dutch: magneetlijst) to store my scissors and covered the strip with fabric (fabric with sewing notions;)
storage rack ( from Ikea too) is made for a kitchen but becomes very handy in the sewing room, I spray painted it white.
More sewing room photo's to come next time;)
Have a nice day!

This one is called : Flames and made by Hilde van Schaardenburg (The Netherlands)
One of the 'Modern quilt guild' quilts. There many, but this is a detail from a quilt made by Kathy York (USA)
Hope you enjoyed the pictures. There was so much to see. These photo's above are just a selection from what I liked or wanted to show because it looked new to me.

Neelam and from Magret Behrends-Kohl (also the scraps at the left). Others are mostly Oakshott cottons at the Quiltcabin from Dortmund.
I enjoyed the first day very much and I will be back with more pictures!

Lots of sewing done, the past two weeks, on this red and white double Irish chain, but the top is done!!! Lizzy has been by my side until the last stitches. Since we lost Goofie she doesn't lose me out of her sight.
I used all kinds of scraps, some of them from the 80ties like the one with the bears and the ducks. Those are one of my earliest quilting fabrics.
All there is left now, is basting and quilting it. I don't know yet how to quilt it. It is quite big:
240cm by 240cm (about 94 by 94 inches).
To be continued :)
