Only 2 weeks and my family and I will be going on holiday in my home country: Brittany!

In the meantime I finished some projects.

The 6th BOM from Bea, as usual the design is lovely and it was a pleasure to stitch.

Then I completed my scrappy stars top. The colors are not really true as the weather was quite wretched over the week-end. That was my excuse for not working in the garden and spend my time sewing!

After a discussion with Angela about sock patterns, she gave me the idea of knitting some Monkey socks.
These are knitted with a cotton/wool yarn and are not as springy as pure wool but warm enough for this time of year!

On Thursday, 3 friends from my quilting group are coming to visit and to discuss and organize our regional meeting in November. Not only work but some laughting and giggling will be taking place I am sure!

At the moment, whole Europe is in soccer fever. Tonight is a game Germany against ??? and although it only starts in 30 minutes, there is nobody anymore on the streets! Just to show...

Anyway I wish you a nice week, with or without soccer.

The quilt is realy wonderful. I have to keep the pattern in mind. Enjoy your holiday 'at home'.
Many thanks again for the lovely embroidery thread you send me. I stitched the last two BOM blocks with it. Hugs Katja

That scrappy stars top is just gorgeous, the colours you've chosen just work beautifully together. As for the monkeys, my all time favourite pattern. They look great !!

It's so nice to see your star quilt done. Those were 6" squares correct? I just love stars. They look like a million, but don't take forever! I'm currently doing a block challenge swap and I would be more than happy to do a quilt full of stars instead. Well, well, this is how we learn, correct? :D
