Pip progress


Last part of my Designer's Mystery BOM 2010: binding. Focus seems to be the keyword here. Hope I can keep it up (o:

Het laatste deel van mijn Designer's Mystery BOM 2010: de bies. Focussen schijnt het magische woord te zijn.

I have also started my Designer's Mystery BOM 2011. First block. I am going to call it a Pip, since I started receiving the blocks in June 2011. It's once again so much fun to make! And, I decided to save the HST scraps. The fabric is too pretty, to just throw away.

Ik ben ook met de Designer's Mystery BOM 2011 begonnen. Het eerst blok. Ook dit wordt een Pip, omdat ik de blokken al vanaf juni 2011 binnen krijg. Dit blok is weer zo leuk to maken! En, ik bewaar de HST restjes. De stof is te mooi om weg te gooien, ook al zijn het maar kleine stukje.

This is the start of a bag my 11 year old niece is making. It is one of Stephanie's patterns of Loft Creations, Oak Park. She took the fabrics from a jelly roll and realized that making a nice balance is not so easy. She did have lots of fun doing it though and it was the first time she worked on a sewing machine. Unfortunately, my niece lives a few hours away from us, so we'll have to plan our next meeting soon.

Dit is het begin van een tas van mijn 11-jarig nichtje. Het is van een patroon van Stephanie van Loft Creations, Oak Park. De stofjes zijn van een jelly roll. M'n nichtje ontdekte al snel, dat het helemaal niet zo makelijk is, de stofjes zo bij elkaar te leggen. Ze vond het wel heel leuk te doen. Voor het eerst heeft ze achter een naaimachine gezeten en ze vond het geweldig. Ik weet niet of ze nog zo snel met de hand zal naaien. Helaas woont m'n nichtje in Oegstgeest, dus moeten we een volgende afspraak plannen.

Your niece has terrific taste and I'm sure it's exciting for you to help her sew. Looking forward to seeing the finished bag. Your Christmas quilt is gorgeous!!!

I made a drawstring bag for my hair rollers when I started college... I won't say how long ago that was - I'm in complete denial. I will say it's more than 2 decades. I still have it, it still works. A bag is a good starting project. A good memory, too. Thanks for evoking it.
Hugs,

Ehh, waar staat PIP ook alweer voor?
En wat ontzettend leuk om dat jonge spul ook aan de gang te zien.
Laatst had een weefster het over haar kleinzoon die zo geweldig enthousiast weeft. Heerlijk om te horen, sorry, lezen :-)

Love your Pip! You're really on a roll! Your niece is doing a good job on that bag! Nice colours. I am still working on a couple of Oak Park bags that I should have had done for Christmas.

Your niece is only 11? She is doing a great job! Her corners line up very well. Tell her that we're all excited to see what she is doing.

I have no doubt you'll be able to maintain your focus!

You are setting such a good example with your PIPs! It is great that you are teaching your niece to sew; it may mean the beginning of a long career as a quilter!
