A friendship tree plus a "no"progress report!

Do you remember this little quilt I've made for my Dutch friend? I gave it to her when I visited her in Holland last October.



Now, look what she gave me when she visited me in Switzerland while I was there. Isn't it lovely? Now we each have a little friendship tree hanging in our respective homes.




I'm glad to be back home now and after travelling a lot during the past few month plus moving house (and country) I am very happy to stay put for a while. I really don't mind if I don't see (the inside) of another airplane for a long time.....

That's also my excuse (and I'm sticking to it) for not making more headway with my Joseph's Coat quilt along. I've only been able to make a few pedals while away.



While in Switzerland, I had to go see what my favourite quilt shop had to offer http://www.cotton-color.com/. I'm proud to say that I stayed firm and kept my promise not to buy any more fabric. But of course I couldn't resit these:




That's it for today. I hope you are having a good day, wherever you are.

I love the fabric you used for the petals.

Books don't count as fabric, so that's all right. The friendship trees are a lovely idea!

Hi Vreni! Thanks for your comment on my blog! I love the fabrics you have chosen, it is great to see everyone's colour choices. And I loved the picture of your 'Meg's Garden' - do you have any more pictures (close-ups?) I would love to see them!
