Small projects being made

 I have been working on some small stitcheries and am really enjoying it. 
Ik heb aan een aantal kleine stitcheries gewerkt en vind het reuze leuk.

 I think I made the fabric choice due to the autumn weather we have had last week.
Ik denk dat ik voor herfst stofjes gekozen heb, gezien het weer van vorige week.

Now that I have made my fabric choice I will be using for the bag that I forgot to make together with my bag friends Melanie and Ulla (thank you bag ladies for waiting for me before you post yours) and have practiced on making bis (that's fun!!!) I am now ready to make the bag.

Ik was helemaal vergeten, dat ik samen met Melanie en Ulla voor 1 augustus een tas zou maken. Nu dat ik de stof heb uitgezocht en geoefend heb bias band te maken, kan ik aan de tas beginnen. Melanie en Ulla waren zo aardig op mij te wachten, voordat ze het zouden posten. Bedankt dames!!!

I don't think I have ever seen an air balloon so near by. I thought it was going to land in our front yard ...
Volgens mij is er nog nooit een luchtballon zo dicht bij ons huis geweest. Even dacht ik dat die in onze tuin ging landen ...

CUTE gnome! I do believe I know exactly what bag you're making. :o) Can't wait to see it.

Abby does not like the whooshing sound of the hot air balloon. We've had them fly so close overhead they've almost hit the treetops.

Wat een heerlijke stofjes heb je klaar liggen. Hoewel, inderdaad een maandje of twee te vroeg.

Ik ben benieuwd naar je tas.
Heb jij die tassen van Namaste al gezien? in Nederland te koop bij wereldwol of zo (even googelen)

Love the stitchery!
We had a hot air balloon land in the next door neighbors yard a few years back. It was rather exciting. No one was hurt either!

We finally have a cool-down here and I am so relieved. You can't imagine how hot it's been in the United States this year. Frustrating.

Take Care!

Die neuen Stoffe und die Stickerei sehen schon richtig schön herbstlich aus.... sehr passen zu dem Wetter das wir zur Zeit haben.

lovely little projects Simone,
if you have autumn, that means spring is very close for us here in the southern hemisphere... YAY!!! Roll on spring!

Hello Simone,
Good luck on your bag making and stitchery. We have hot air balloons here too. Does Bibi get upset by there noise?
Happy days.

Totally gorgeous Elf and 'shroom fabrics. I keep thinking of Autumn too. Mmm rich reds and conker colours. :-)

I was amazed at just how noisy hot air balloons are. For some reason I imagined them to be silent and ignored the fact that they have a huge gas jet. LOL

Ben natuurlijk heel benieuwd naar jullie tas. De stitchery is een liefje. En wat gaan we met de stofjes doen?

Wat een lieve stitcheries!! En wat is zo'n biais-makertje handig, hè?!
En wat is die luchtballon dichtbij....... dan zou ik ook bang zijn dat ie in mijn tuin zou landen........
Fijn weekend, liefs, Ria.

Very cute Santa and mushroom, Simone.
Small stitcheries can be a lot of fun :)
Hugs, Sharon

Cute stitcheries Simone! Those mushrooms always remind me of my childhood. I think my grandmother read me books with little trolls who lived in mushroom in the woods. The owl fabric is very cute!

Your post brought back some memories for me. When I would stay at my mom's in Augusta, Maine, the hot air balloons would wake me early in the morning floating closely over the roof of her house. Sadly, she passed away suddenly in '82 at the young age of 50, but the memory brings a smile to my morning.

Hallo Lieve Simone, lovely the fabric you have chosen for the bag...when we lived in Melbourne...we would see the hot air ballons quite often...they landed in a paddock near home...Hugs Lyn
