Material Obsession

Months ago I wrote a blog about the pile of fabric that I bought for my daughters quilt.The one that I found in the great book Material Obsession. Now I can show you that I've been quite busy over the summer, the quilt is almost finished. There was a lot of work involved because all the parts are done by hand. Now I'm piecing it all together by machine and again I like to do the top quilting by hand. The evenings are getting shorter and colder over here so it is nice to snuggle under it while you do the hand quilting.

I made daisies, daffodils, sunflowers, hearts, gerberas, tulips, four-patches and pinwheels so unfortunately it wasn't a boring job at all. Everything in bright colours with a lot of white, what makes it a quite nice quilt.

Here just a little peek of what I been doing and I'll show you soon the end result. First I have to hand quilt!

Dit wordt/is echt prachtig! Heerlijk al die vrolijke kleuren! En ook zo leuk dat er zulke verschillende patronen inzitten. Hier beginnen de dagen juist weer te lengen en de zon scheen zelfs heerlijk vandaag! Oké het is nog niet echt warm, maar daar gaan wel wel weer naar toe. Daar kan ik echt naar uitkijken!

Introducing

This is the first time that I write in my blog.
I am Jacoline, me and my family emigrated to New Zealand from The Netherlands 3 years ago.
I can tell you, we went through some hard times in those 3 years, but we found our dream.

We bought a lovely home close to the beach. I spend a lot of time in our garden which has a lot of fruit trees, a nice vegetable garden and great flowers.

I love to shop in secondhand shops and garages sales are the best invention ever.
My days are filled with craft, cooking , baking and of course my 3 girls.
I try to have a beachwalk every day and on wednesday I join the quilt club.

We are still busy with rebuiling the house to make it a great home.
We like traveling and like to discover our new country.
I keep you updated with new stories, recipes, ideas and pictures every week.
