Pink and green

This gorgeous little kitten came with the post this week, all the way from Australia, from my dear friend Lyn! Isn't Kitty a darling. She even has her own quilt. And the colors are so me! Thank you so much, Lyn, for making my days less lonely (o:

Dit schattig katje kwam van mijn lieve vriendin Lyn uit Australië. Is ze niet lief! Ze heeft zelfs haar eigen quiltje.   En dit zijn absoluut mijn kleuren. Bedankt Lyn, om dit lieve gezelschap in mijn huis te brengen (o:

I finally finished my giveaway bag for Ria. I did let her know it would come later. The bag was designed by Stephanie from Loft Creations. I hope I don't bore you, by telling once again how much fun it is to make her patterns. And somehow I always have to more than one version. This is my third Mary Jane Bag (o:

Voor Ria heb ik eindelijk de tas af, die ze gewonnen heeft bij mijn giveaway. Ik heb haar wel laten weten, dat de tas later zou komen. De tas is ontworpen door Stephanie van Loft Creations. Ik hoop dat ik jullie niet verveel door nog eens te zeggen hoe leuk het toch is haar patronen te maken! En op de een of andere manier moet ik altijd meer versies van haar tas maken. Dit is de derde Mary Jane Bag (o:

You can't see it clearly on this picture, but I hand stitched around this figure. Please click on the picture to get a better look. It is the first time I did this and I really enjoyed it!

Je kunt niet echt goed zien, dat ik rondom het figuur geborduurd heb. Als je op de foto klikt, kun je het beter zien.

I just discovered that blogger deleted most of the links on my blogroll. I certainly hope this will restore soon, because I wouldn't want to miss the posts of those blogs and I don't think I will be able to find them back again. 

Ik heb net ondekt, dat blogger bijna al mijn links op mijn blogroll heeft verwijderd. Hopelijk zal het snel hersteld worden, want ik wil toch zeker niet de blogposts missen en ik denk niet dat ik ze allemaal kan terugvinden.

Hallo Lieve Simone, happy Kitty arrived safe and sound...some lovely projects you have made...hugs lyn

Cattinka zei

I think you should make just one more Mary Jane bag, in exactly the same colours, because it matches the kitty perfectly and would be a nice place to keep it, or take it places.

Sue zei

Simone! You are making some lovely things. And I really love the kitten! How cute is she?! What a nice gift from your friend:)

Enjoy your day today :)

hetty zei

How cute is that kitten! Lucky you! You have been busy, I see. Love all the things you've made. The Mary Jane bag looks amazing. And I love how you arranged those hexies on your Dad's cushion.

A Spoonful Of Sugar zei

Your sweet kitten is adorable in the pink and green!

Your Dad's cushion is really striking! You have been most productive lately :) Have a great week.

Jackie zei

You've been very productive! The kitty is cute and how neat that she comes with her own quilt.

I think that once I decide to work on a bag, it must be one of Stephanie's. The ones you make are always so cute. Of course, you have a great eye for picking fabrics too!

Satu zei

You have done A LOT of beautiful things... I can't decide, which one I like the best;) I have been trying to find some time to sew my first bag designed by Stephanie... hopefully it will be soon! And about blogger; it has been quite nasty recently. I also lost some info, but so far they are restored.

Amanda zei

The kitten is really sweet. And you've been busy too making lots of lovely things.

Lieve Simone...how thoughtful of Lyn to send a kitten to keep you company...your bag is gorgeous as are all your projects...I have found if something disappears with blogger it eventually comes back...I'm trying to work out the Pages thing here...Don't you just love it when you find a pattern that you enjoy...I find the same with Anni Downs' patterns!!! Have a lovely week and I hope you aren't feeling too lonely...If I was closer we could go out!!! Hugs un ar bucin...Dzintra

Stephanie zei

That is the cutest kitty in your favorite colors. Another lovely bag. :o) You've been quite busy. I'm sure your father enjoyed his birthday celebration and the special handmade gift from you.

Giraffe are my favorite animals.

Carrie P. zei

that little kitty is adorable. what a sweet gift.
you have been very busy making some very lovely things.

Anoniem zei

what lovely things you have made,well done

Cybele's patch zei

Wat een verwennerij. Kitty is een schatje. Ik dacht eerst dat jij haar gemaakt had omdat het precies jouw kleuren zijn. Je eigen werkjes zijn ook weer helemaal top. Het blauwe matje is erg gewaagd (en mooi)omdat dat helemaal niet jouw kleur is.

sue z zei

They are all so lovely!! I see you used some of my Hungarian Blue in the mat. How fun!

Nanette Merrill zei

That kitty is so incredibly cute! You're lucky to get her.

Grethe zei

What a lovely pink Kitty,and the bag you made is super;I can see the handstitching:-)
Nice to catch up on your blog again, sweet candlemat,lucky friend of yours!
Happy Quilting.
