Lots to tell ......

First of all, I recieved an "You make my Day"-award from Tara . Thank you so much, I feel honored !! Now it is my turn to reward some blogs that are inspirational to me, and that make my day ;-) This is not an easy task, as I read a lot of blogs !!!
Here I go :

I finished some things I can show, now they have arrived ;-)

First a present for Simone, for a suprise exchange on my Dutch yahoogroup, because it was the groups third birthday . I made a tray, I tea-dyed the fabric myself. Gives it an antique look.

Then there was a pinkeep exchange on my Dutch yahoogroup. I made one for Lintine. She likes pink, and Tante's zolder, can you tell ? ;-)

And I recieved one from Simone. She made a Sanman design, to hang in my ornament tree. I really love it !!

I'm also in the Valentine's exchange on Crazy-exchange forum, and I got the exchange from Marne. I 'm also loving this one !!! A wonderful quilt with appliquer, candy,a dn a wonderful book with quilting and stitchery patterns in it.

And last but not least, I recieved a gift from Jacqueline. It was a PIF gift,a nd i Love it. It's a needle/scissorcase

I also tried Stitchery for the first time, and I like it ;-)
a pumpkin of course ;-)

And as last picture, my SSS stash that arrived yesterday. Love the colors !!!

Reason I wasn't online for so long is because we had Carnival here in Aalst. I had to make three costumes : for my husband, my brother and me. It was a Joker costume. I'll show a picture, but don't laugh, I look like a balloon (because off all the clothing I have underneath) ;-) ....... The Joker on the right is my husband.

The kids also liked taking pictures ;-)

Wow I've been granted an award! I feel so honoured.

I'm sorry but I did laugh at your pic... you look so funny (which I guess is what these costumes were all about so they did their job). I know about all the clothing underneath your costume though... I looked a few sizes more than usual myself the past few days (and you know I already have a considerable size LOL).

Cute pics of the kids too!

The gifts you gave and the ones you received are wonderful! How you keep track, I don't know ;o) I'm in LOVE with your pumpkin but then, you should have guessed that. LOL!

The costumes are terrific! Very good. (almost Halloween again, heh?) And your make-up is most convincing. Do take a picture of your Valentine "tree" - I would really like to see it all decorated.
