Oops I did it again ... (part II)

Beware ~ this is a post with lots of photos!
Let op ~ dit is een post met veel foto's!



Yes, I did it again. I made another bag. This time for my 10 year old niece. She needed a new bag, so her shoes would fit in better. I was almost going to keep it myself ...

Ja, ik heb het weer gedaan. Nog een tas genaaid. Dit keer voor mijn nichtje van 10. Ze had een nieuwe tas nodig, zodat haar schoenen er goed in zouden passen. Ik had de tas bijna zelf gehouden.




On Saturday my mother turned 75. Another niece made this beautiful wreath for her. So fresh, so pretty.

Op zaterdag is mijn moeder 75 jaar geworden. Een ander nichtje heeft deze krans gemaakt. Zo mooi en fris!

One of the delicious  birthday cakes. It is sooooo good!!
Een van de heerlijke verjaardagstaarten. Zooooooo ontzettend lekker!


Each candle stood for 15 years (o:
The girl holding the cake is my niece for who I made the bag. The girl in the middle is the one who made the beautiful wreath!

Iedere kaars stond voor 15 jaar (o:
Voor het meisje dat de taart vasthoudt heb ik de tas gemaakt. Het meisje achter in het midden heeft de mooie krans gemaakt.



I made this little doll for my mother. It is one of the first patterns by Jodie at Ric Rac. Lots of fun to make. I think I will be making one for myself too now!

Dit kleine poppetje heb ik voor mijn moeder gemaakt. Het is een van de eerste patronen van Jodie van Ric Rac. het is heel leuk te maken. Ik denk dat ik er nu ook maar eens eentje voor mezelf ga maken (o: 



Last week I received a package from Melanie with some beautiful pieces of fabric she took with her from her visit to Egypt with her daughter. She cut the pieces from scarfs and sent them to her Helping Hands. While playing with the pieces, suddenly a scarf popped up in my mind and I made it immediately. I am wearing it right now. Perfect weather for it! the colors are so pretty!!

Vorige week kwam er een pakketje met stofjes binnen van Melanie, die zij had meegenomen toen ze met haar dochter in Egypte was. De stofjes komen van verschillende sjaals, die ze aan haar Helping Hands heeft gestuurd. Terwijl ik met de stofjes aan het spelen was, wist ik opeens wat ik ermee zou doen. Ik ben meteen aan de slag gegaan en dit is het resultaat. Heerlijke sjaal, die ik op dit moment draag. De kleuren zijn zo mooi!

De toppen van de bomen vangen het zonlicht op en sturen de maan weg.

I wish your mother delayed Happy Birthday wishes and a long and healthy life!!
Yesterday I read that a hundred year old man took part in a marathon race and that he was very proud, that 4 people were slower than him...*lol*...He began with his training in the age of 80!!Unbelievable, isn`t it??
I love your owl bag!! Great!!And I love the doll, too....Is it difficult to sew???
Best wishes

Looks like your mother had a lovely birthday. The wreath was so pretty. I think she loved your cute doll. The owl bag is a great design. I like the little pocket and the space.
