Ken je dat? (did you ever.?)

Ken je dat? Zit je lekker in een quiltflow, krijg je ineens de 'borduurkriebels'! Vrijdag was ik een middagje op stap met Mam en Bep. Had geen zin om op mijn vrije vrijdag weer een poetsdag te hebben. Dus in de auto naar Elburg. Leuk plaatsje met hele leuke winkeltjes. Daar gingen we natuurlijk even hier naar binnen. En daar vond ik teveel leuke garens, patronen en boekjes. En vond ook de oplossing voor mijn letterbak.(klik) Ben d'r al mee bezig sinds 2010, had het eerst 'oud wit'  gemaakt en ben daarna gaan borduren. Maar vond het linnen en garen totaal niet tot zijn recht komen. EN smaken veranderen door de jaren heen. Nu met een paars garen van Threadworx en wit linnen komt het veel beter uit. Op de foto de eerste 4 nieuwe letters, en de oude in oude kleur en linnen. Wat vind je er van?

Did you ever had a Quilt flow, and suddenly got the cross-stitch bugs..? Last Friday, I didn't want to have a cleaning day again, so I went to a little town Elburg with Mom and Bep. We visited a Cross-stitch shop, and came out, with bags full of 'goodies'. AND... I found the solution for my printers tray. I started filling this tray back in 2010. After painting it white. But the linnen and thread didn't work that well. Now with purple Threadworx thread and white linnen, I think it's much better, what do you think?. So after trying out just 1 letter, B,C,D came along.. LOL

Maar, ik heb het toch netjes weggelegd, en ben verder aan het quilten aan de pensioenquilt. Heb nog een goede 1,5 maand en dan is het klaar. De quilt dan hè! (ik heb nog heel wat werkjaartjes voor de boeg..)
But, I put it aside, and worked on the retirement quilt. 1,5 month to go, and than it has to be finished. The quilt that is,.. not me! (still a 'few' years of working to go..)

Afgelopen Woensdag was de maandelijkse quiltbee. Met als thema 'Christmas in July'. Heidi verteld er alles over op haar blog. Ik had dit deur ornamentje gemaakt.
Last wednesday we had our monthly quiltbee. With of course 'Christmas in July' as theme. Heidi tells about it on her blog. I made this little door hanger.

En we kregen weer een paar patroontjes voor de adventquilt. Zo leuk om te doen, al probeer ik wel zoveel mogelijk verschillende afbeeldingen te maken. Vandaar dat ik het 2e elandpatroontje vervangen heb, voor een ander dier. Het schaap... Want zoals het kerstliedje gaat, 'De herdertjes lagen bij nachte, Zij lagen bij nacht in het veld Zij hielden vol trouwe de wachte, Zij hadden hun schaapjes geteld'.. 
And we got the newsletter, with more patterns for our advent quilt. I love to make this, although I try to have as much different patterns I can find/get. So thats why I turned the second pattern of a moose into a different animal. A sheep. Because one of the Christmas carols goes about shepherds and there sheep. ( in Dutch anyway..)

  1. Leuke werkjes!
    Moeilijk kiezen tussen oude en nieuwe letterbak werkjes. Ik vind beide mooi.

  2. 2010! Was it in 2010?! How time flies! The first letters in purple are looking great!
    I was checking buien radar and KNMI and thought I's check in on Dutch Girl Quilting before I head out the door! New Blog photo's and story! Super!
    "While sheperds watched their flock by night...." I think that how one of the english songs go! Wonder if they had binoculars?
    Shepards! What about all that stuff they brought with them? and "twas the night before Christmas" must have a few images! mouse, chimney, threw up the sash, kerchief, a little old driver.....
    Take care,

  3. Ohh jouw letterbak wordt met die paarse letters wel erg mooi !!

  7. Wat wordt dit mooi met het nieuwe garen, het is een erg leuke winkel in ElBaradei waar ik ook altijd graag naartoe ga.

  8. Hoi Sas,deze kleur komt inderdaad beter uit.En die andere daar kan je wel weer in een ander projectje gebruiken.
    Maar vergeet je UFOS niet door al deze leuke borduurtjes.

  9. analyѕt I feeling that theгe аrе non-ratiоnаl
    forces at oρеrate. Creating pizza is entertаining,
    not that chаllenging, and a beautifully inѵentive way to impresѕ gоod friends and household with your coοking skillѕеts - additionally make ԁelісious meals thаt really don't crack the price range. As a subject of point it is like a very highly-concentrated food items that, unless taken in rather tiny quantities, it is liable to upset weak digestions.
