Tea love, sampler, gnome, owls and Thijme

I have been stitching quite a lot lately and have really been enjoying it (o:
De laatste tijd heb ik veel gestitcht. Heerlijk!

Two mug rugs
Twee 'mok-matjes' 


Detail stitchery 


Gnome turned into another mug rug.
En nog een mug rug. Dit keer met een kaboutertje. 


A fish mat to keep my sister's 'chickens' company.
Een vis matje voor de 'kippetjes' van mijn zus. 


Another phone cover.
En nog een telefoonhoesje. 


Bari's Sewing Room Sampler. I 'cheated' on the sewing machinge. In the pattern it is filled with French knots. I only added the French knots to some parts. Lots and lots of French knots don't make me happy. A few are okay (o:

Bari's Sewing Room Sampler. Ik heb een beetje gefoeteld (echt Limburgs!) met de naaimachine. In het patroon wordt de machine gevuld met French knots. Ik heb maar een paar onderdelen gevuld. Een paar French knots wil ik nog wel maken, maar er een heel stuk mee opvullen. Nee, dat is echt niets mijn ding.



Yesterday we moved the last things to Thijme's own new living space in Tilburg. He did a wonderful job furnishing it with second hand furniture that he was able to find via Marktplaats.

Gisteren hebben we de laatste spulletjes naar Thijme's nieuwe woonplek in Tilburg verhuisd. Bijna al zijn meubels heeft hij voor in prikkie op Marktplaats gevonden. Ongelooflijk, wat voor moois je daar kunt vinden. En Thijme heeft er echt een neus voor.

Your stitcheries look amazing! I love the mug rugs! And the fish. Thijme's place looks like a real bachelor pad! Good for him. Does that make you empty nesters now?

Cutest little mug mats!!! I should say I have a favorite but I do. :o) Thijme really has a spacious room. Very manly decorating style.

Very cute mug rugs, you must be careful not to spill any tea on them!
Your son has a very nice place to live in for his student time.

Welcome to domesticity Thijme! You have done a good job!

What lovely stitcheries Simone. I was looking for another hand project for the evenings and am doing Autumn Houses applique. I love how your mats have turned out.

Sarah zei

YAY his very own place...

But how is mum? Empty nest?

You are mug mat crazy!

Dolores zei

Lots of interesting little projects. Anything for Thijme's new place? It looks very nice and I do hope he doesn't get too homesick. Keeping busy makes the time go oh so much quicker.

Carrie P. zei

Wow, you have been doing a lot of embroidery. Love them all but especially the fish bowl.

Kwam via via op je blog uit en heb je stitcheries bewonderd. Zag dat je liever géén franse knoopjes maakt, maar heb je dan de tutorial van Helen op Hugs from Helen al geprobeerd voor de colonial knot? Veel mooier dan de franse knoop en zo makkelijk te maken, ik ben helemaal om, voortaan alleen maar colonial knots.

Jeetje jij bent bezig geweest, heb je last van leeg nest syndroom. Het zijn wel hele leuke dingen die je gemaakt hebt. De stitch sampler is geweldig en je hebt wel leuk gesjoemeld. Thymen maakt het zich wel gezellig, goed voor hem. Tot snel maar weer

Sharon zei

Your fingers have been busy! Such cute projects you've done. I agree about too many french knots filling in that sewing machine. You were smart to change it up a bit. Wish I'd done that with mine. :)

KaHolly zei

Your mug rugs are too pretty to use!!

Gwen @ Gwenny Penny zei

Your mug rugs are adorable, Simone! I especially love the tea bag... so cute! Great fabric choices, too :)
