Melanie and I have been working on another tablerunner. This time we used a pattern designed by Monica from Happy Zombie. These projects are made with a turnover pack. Easy, fast and fun!
The pattern was for one tablerunner, but it was to big for our table. That is why I decided to make two smaller ones.

Melanie en ik hebben opnieuw een tablerunner gemaakt. Dit keer hebben we het patroon van Monica gebruikt van Happy Zombie. Deze projecten zijn met een pakje turnovers gemaakt. Snel, makkelijk en leuk om te doen!
Eigenlijk was het patroon voor één tablerunner bestemd, maar dan zou die te groot zijn geworden voor onze tafel. Daarom heb ik er twee van gemaakt.

While I was looking in my stash for fabrics for the Virtual Euro Bee, I came across this lovely Halloween stash. It will be so much fun to work with this!

Terwijl ik tussen mijn lapjes aan het zoeken was voor de virtuele Euro Bee, ontdekte ik deze bundel. Wat zal het leuk zijn, om daarmee te werken. Een projectje heb ik al bedacht!

I wanted to share the wrapping paper, one of my cousins, Noor, made for my father's birthday. Is there anything happier, then self made wrapping paper by your grandchild?

Kijk eens naar dit cadeaupapier, dat een nichtje Noor voor mijn vader's verjaardag heeft gemaakt. Wat is er leuker, dan een pakje in papier te krijgen, dat je kleinkind heeft gemaakt?

Look at the lovely images I come across when taking my morning walks with Bibi. I just love those pictures of the fences. So creative and hardly to be seen if you don't look for them.

Moet je eens naar de schoonheid van de omgeving kijken, die ik tegenkom tijdens mijn ochtendwandelingen met Bibi. Vooral de foto's van de omheiningen bevallen me erg goed. Ze creatief en nauwelijks te zien, als je er niet op let.

This week I found this spider web early one morning in our garden. The loveliness of autumn!
Deze week vond ik op een ochtend deze spinnenweb in onze tuin. De schoonheid van het najaar!

Dolores zei

It is amazing what you find if you only look. I love old fences too. That Hallowe'en fabric is wonderful. Have fun with it.
You are busy busy with all your stitching. Those are great table toppers.

Amanda zei

The table runners are lovely, just right for the autumn. It will be fun to see what you make with the Halloween fabrics; I'm making a pattern I found on the internet, my first Halloween decoration ever. Great wrapping paper; I always make my own too, but it's nothing like as joyous and abundant as that. And what a great photograph of a spider's web. I was looking at some in the garden the other day, beautiful with the sun shining on the dew drops, but I didn't have my camera to hand.

Gretchen zei

Wonderful photos!! Love the little quilts and the handmade wallpaper. I have a huge stash of Halloween fabric--enough for several quilts (probably bed sized! LOL!)

Gretchen zei

I meant wrapping paper! Did I saw wall paper??!!!?

Melanie zei

Wow they turned out really well Simone. Great work. Yes the wrapping paper is real art- almost a present in itself.

Love the happy pumpkins on the new/re-found fabric.

Amazing web photo. What a lovely walk you went on.

Will blog the runner in a sec- just taking pics off camera.

Jackie zei

The spider web is beautiful and scary at the same time!

Great table runners! They remind me that I need to take out my fall table runner and use it. I've not seen the pattern that you used either. I need to subscribe to her blog.

I always enjoy the pictures of your walk. My favorite one is the top right - the winding trail through the woods!

Ik snap niet waar jij toch allemaal het stof vandaan haalt. Telkens weer is de stofjes leuk en past bijelkaar. Ben heel benieuwd wat je met de halloweenstofjes gaat doen.

Leanne zei

As your Autumn comes so does our spring it is such a nice day here today. I like your morning walk photos and webs are always fantastic covered with dew.

Marion B. zei

Wat een zalige stofjes heb je gebruikt, en zulk pakpapier, daar kan zelfs het kadootje niet tegenop. Zo lief.

Katrien zei

Wat mooi de tafellopers.
Benieuwd wat je gaat maken met de halloweenstofjes.

Hello Simone,

I love the first table runner,it jumped right out to me. It reminded me of pumpkin pie!!! The wrapping paper is beautiful,maybe a little quilt could be made of the design.
Thanks for sharing the spider web, there is something special about them,mind you the spider I don't like so much.
Happy Autumn.

Simone - my most favourite quote yet - how exciting to be reminded that right NOW we are creating!!!

I think the wrapping paper is gorgeous - I would imagine your father would cherish it equally as the gifts within!

Love the table runners - such beautiful fabrics... and your photos are idyllic - wish I could come for a walk with you and Bibi!!

Have a lovely day lieve Simone!
Hugs!!! Vikki x :-)

Very pretty table runners.
I remember when my kids were young we did our own paper too. It was fun.
Love the photo of the spider web.

hetty zei

Wow! You certainly manage to put a lot of different things into our posts! I love the autumn table runners. And the Halloween fabric is very cute! But mostly I love the spider web. I have had a few in my garden too and I love the way they look early in the morning, covered in dew. Old fences and winding paths are some of my favourites too.

Karen zei

Cute tablerunner and I look forward to seeing what you do with the Halloween stash.
