90% done.

We started this year at the quilting class by doing smaller projects. I made this ring binder cover.  It is very quick and easy. I absolutely adore the fabric,which is from STUDIO E FABRICS. What I must still do is attach a huge button in the middle of my flower, do some stitching around my flower and hand stitch my binding. Then it is done! I ordered some new fabric, can't wait for it to come and I will show:)

A cute stitching project{almost done}

So I tried my hand at some stitching,lol!! I can remember some stitches still from primary school,like the little French knot,some back stitching and stem stitch. This little design just caught my eye and I wanted to do something with it. I love the designs from Stephanie Ackerman,I also enrolled in her class that she started since the beginning of this year,but in the back of my head I have something different planned for this;) I had some DMC threads in  my stash,which I use on my scrapbooking, I took them out and added some more vibrant colours and last weekend I started of with this little project,only a few stitches away from finish.

On my way back!!

Hallo Everybody!
I am still alive!lol!! for those thinking I left earth,no I am still here!!
LIFE just got in the way of me and my computer.
My husband had leave for more than an month, I just quickly updated my mails and sneaked in a comment here and there, the rest of the time we spend with him.  He is back at work now, but I went to him twice already, so I was away from home again.
This term was hectic!! My word!! Matric allover again!! Megan is studying and working very hard to keep her grades up to standard,she already applied at two universities for next year's studies. It was track and field season , the hockey started at the same time. I had to help out at my mom's house, since she was a bit ill, but is better now.
I did work on some quilts and crocheting, will upload after Easter.
Hope you are all still well and I promise to pop in real soon.
