This weekend was a great dog-show in Luxembourg-City, over 6000 dogs were on the show.
Yesterday my two girls were there with friends to help with their 5 dogs. Today Joëlle and Christelle went back with our dogs because they met yesterday on the show a photographer and they would have photos from our dogs...I think I have to show you some of this photos of our darlings..... :-)

Since early this morning I hear the humming from the motorcycles. One of the competitions is only about 200 m away from our house.

The same will be tomorrow :-(
Tomorrow evening we will go out for dinner to celebrate my mother in law's birthday (75).
My sister in law came back from the States yesterday where she lived for some years, her husband has a job out there, but she now has to come back because she does'nt have a green-card. For the next 2-3 years she will work here in Luxembourg and John, her husband has to stay in the States until his retirement.... that will be a hard time for both.
OK...I'm so tired from all the work , all I need today is a shower and my bed.
See you tomorrow....

I designed this two blocks for my personal quilt in 2004 (last olympic games) I wanted to have special memories in my quilt of the year it was sewed.
I love to watch the olympic games on TV.... and as 2008 is an olympic year too, I would like to share with everybody sewing the dutch treat this special design. Feel free to copy and use it.
Another design I made for my quilt because I missed a sewing machine in my quilt.
You may copy and use it too if you like it.

At home I layed out the plexiglass plate on the table and drew around. The hole is cut 1/2" smaller than this line, because you need some space to lay the plate upon. The plate is 1/8" thick, so we had to cut down the table on this 1/2" with a special tool for 1/8" so that the plexiglass fit into the hole and is evenly with the table.
After cutting the hole we had to built the support for the machine. The height of this case depends from your machine, mesure exactly!
Oh my..it's not so easy for me to explain all this in English, but as you can see, I try very hard! :-)
I think you will understand what I mean when you see all the pictures......hopefully.... :-)
