Lots of pictures

The first pic is of my family. In front are my parents with all their offspring and in-laws. It was taken on the remembrance party for my late husband. Some of them are not on the pic, other commitments...
Then there is the start of the second fish, a green one this time.
I finished the first green block of the top we started in our patchwork course. The pic is how it is now (still have to press the seams and stitch the row together).
The 3 next parts of the Lizzy Kate SAL are done, 3 to go and it will be finished.
I started 2 other SAL's on another group, I just became member of it. The first is a series of Christmas socks. The first one has a Santa in it. Then there is the snowman bookmark, of which I stitched 2 parts already.
The crazy chick I stitched on a workshop in De Banier, the shop of the Chiro, a Belgium kind of scouting. I did another workshop for cherrypitcushions, but I haven't finished it yet.
The quaker halloween design is of Sanman, something different as tje usual designs.
And the cushion of Regenboogkussens where I stitched the 3 victorian kids is ready, another person happy with the thought that people care.
I won't be able tot stich much the next weeks, my daughter's collegue has become mum to Emma. The daycarecenter is run by the two of them, so In kept my holidays until now. So I will be in the middle of 14 screaming, drooling, pooping babies. And roll into my bed after an 11 hour workday!
On monday I will be having a day of as my quilting course starts at the Calico House in Antwerp. I feel my fingers itching already.

I did talk about the quilt with fishes I have been ordered by my oldest grandson. The picture is from the book where I found the design. I chose other fabric for it, not plain fabrics but ones with motifs. Today I finished the first fish, I think it looks well. Not all corners are as I wish for, but as a novice, I think I did the best I could.

Tomorrow evening is my second bee, I'm lloking forward to it, don't know yet what I will take with me, this one or the one that we started in the patchwork course (and which still isn't finished, although I did some work on it).

This month I also will start with the quilting course, I'm looking forward to it.

My late hubby's birthday was last week, the first one after his passing, it went well that day. On saturday we had a little party on his behalf, my family was there and some good friends. I had a good time and many happy memories were told. This month is the first anniversary of his passing.
