Some Goodies...

When I was at the Quilt Festival in Birmingham I told myself that I am "allowed" to spend some money on fabrics and stuff. On my first day I was just so overwelmed by the quilts, the people and of course the massive amount of wonderful fabrics, that I could´nt buy anything. And then on the second day I said "buy something... just do it". Nothing happened, then after a while I bought a little something and as if I opened a gate, suddenly I shopped, shopped as if there was no tomorrow. Here you can see some of the beautiful fabrics I bought. I am absolutely looking forward doing something nice with them.

A wonderful bundle from Mandy by simplysolids.

An absolutely cool find: three fat quarters of Katie Jump Rope

Some cute fabrics (which are not Liberty, allthough they could be)

And two half yards of Antique Treasures (I love the vintage feel of these! I already ordered some from the same line, this will become a wonderful quilt...)

I have to say I am really proud of beeing featured on Amy´s creative Side Quilt Blog.
Thank you Amy!

Here I try to update!

It has been an unbelievably busy summer this year. And I wish I could have told you all the amazing things that happened earlier. But unfortunately the lack of energy made me decide to let the blog sleep for a little while. I hope you don´t mind.
What can I tell you? Where to begin? Well the business first:
Why I was so busy was the fact that I am going to move with my little shop here within Berlin. A friend of mine is this amazing crocheted jewelry artist, and we decided to make a shop together. The move will be at the end of september and therefor there is still a lot to do.
The new place is a sunny shop in a litlle different area and I am very exited, though a little scared, too.

Well another cool thing was my trip to Birmingham to the festival of quilts. When Tacha, one of the amazing girls from the Fat Quarterly Quilting magazine, told me about the festival a few months ago, I knew I wanted to go. I can tell you, I had a really good time. I saw amazing quilts, here are just a few of the hundrets of pictures I took,

and besides that I met Tacha, Katy and Brioni and had a blast at their stand of Fat Quarterly giving out there cards.

The next good(or bad) thing was the fabric which could be bought at many many booths. For sure I could not resist and bought some nice little cuties. For example this wonderful fatquarter set from Simply Solids, Mandy the owner is a really nice and funny person!!! And at the end I learned how to make hexies in a very nice workshop.
This is it for now, but I will go on updating you in the next days, I hope.
Take care,
