I just love everything very, very much.So Thanks Lori.

This is a brooch I made yesterday. I found the pattern in a book from the library , and I like it a lot. My daughters already told me that they want one also.
I just joined a brooch/ pin swap over at swap bot and I want to make some of these for it.

Isn't this lovely!!!!!!!!
Then I found a lovely vintage Dutch tablecloth.I haven't found such great things for a long time.I'm so thrilled!
This is a potholder I made for my mother.I don't know what happened to the colour? It's a lovely light blue but in this photo it looks grey....I have made another one in a darker blue colour but I haven't made a photo of that yet.
At this moment I'm allmost finished with a tea towel swap.I have bought a vintage Dutch tea towel and I have bought a new one that looks like some of our vintage ones.I'm allmost finished with embellishing it.Then I'm going to include something extra and 2 lovely recipes........When my swap partner received her package I will post a photo of it.

I aslo participated in the pincushion challenge. This month it hat to be recycled, and I choose an old canning jar filled with old buttons. The pincushion is made from an old pillow.Next we will have a pincushion swap , I can't wait to get started with that.
And finally some x stitching. I found this lovely freebie for Halloween at San Man originals.They have more nice freebies and I also joined the forum. It's a great group!
I hope that everybody has a lovely weekend.
