Designer's Mystery BOM 2010 - finished!

Yeah, I did it. Another Pip done (o: All it needs now is a label, but I am sure I can manage that soon. I hope. I'm not good at labeling ...
The colors are much prettier and even though I was able to take the pictures in the sun today, the colors don't come out well.
I 'copied' Sherri's layout for this quilt. The white sashing makes the blocks come our perfectly. Now I'll have to wait another 10 months or so, before I can use it.

Joepie, de quilt is af! Weer een Pip die klaar is (o: Nu moet er nog een label op en daar ben ik niet goed in. Misschien volgend jaar ...
De kleuren zijn in het echt veel mooier. Ik heb de foto vandaag zowaar in de zon kunnen nemen, maar toch komen de kleuren niet tot hun recht. Jammer.
De layout van deze quilt heb ik van Sherri overgenomen. Door de witte sashing komen de blokken veel beter uit.
Nu nog 10 maanden wachten en dan kan ik de quilt gebruiken. Yeah!

Now what do you do if you get lovely pens like these and you find this tutorial for a case that would be perfect for it? Right, you make it.

Wat doe je als je deze mooie pennen krijgt en je deze tutorial vindt voor een etui? Juist, dan maak je de etui (o:

The pen(cil) case was designed by the very talented Lisa from A Spoonful of Sugar. If you have never visited her blog, you better take a nice cup of coffee or tea and take your time exploring it. She has so many lovely ideas and tutorials.

De etui is ontworpen door Lisa van A Spoonful of Sugar. Als je haar blog nog niet eerder bezocht hebt, neem  dan de tijd met een lekker kopje koffie of thee. Lisa heeft heel leuke ideeën en tutorials!

Let us be grateful
to people who make us happy;
They are the charming gardeners
who make our souls blossom.
