A grey sunday in januar

The only springtime is in my window sill.

What did I do this week? Yesterday I started my running training, I want to run the 5 kilometers in Leiden in mai. It was fun. Let see how it's going on, maybe I have to rename my blog in a few weeks into the: "the running quilter".

I worked a lot on one of my antique quilts, a log cabin from around the 1900's, because it were just quilted pieces, I sewed them all together (quilt-as-you-go method). For the back I made bias strips, so it will be a little bit stronger, because the quilt is rather damaged and fragile, but it feels so soft.

I also found some fabric to put a new border around it, that needs to be quilting. But when it's finished, it will be number 4 of my repaired antique quilts. Don't worry number 5 is waiting for me.

Of course, very nice. I must say that I do like that log cabin quilt. Gezellig. Quite a bit of sewing going on around here. In 1 month my houseguest is due to arrive - won't that be such fun? Prima!
