Autumn finishes

I started and finished my autumn table runner this week. The pumpkins were designed by Amanda at The Patchsmith for a mug rug and you can get the pattern here. When I saw it, I immediately knew, that I would use the pattern for a table runner. Great pattern, Amanda! Loved making the pumpkins.

Deze week ben ik begonnen met mijn herfstloper en heb hem ook nog eens helemaal afgemaakt. Het patroon van de pompoenen is oorspronkelijk een mug rug, maar toen ik het zag, wist ik meteen dat het een nieuwe loper zou worden. Amanda van The Patchsmith heeft het ontworpen en je kunt het hier krijgen. Ze heeft nog meer leuke patronen ontworpen!

This is one of the projects for the Craft Olympics Athlete Challenge: needle turn appliqué. Well, it was much more fun than I had experienced needle turning before. It wasn't even frustrating. Maybe I am more patient now, I don't know. Even the beek looks pretty pointed. And, the circles look pretty good too. I think I will continue my needle turn appliqué adventure (o:

Dit is een van de Craft Olympics Athlete Challenge: needle turn appliqué. Het was veel leuker hieraan te werken, dan ik had verwacht. En, het was niet eens frustrerend. Misschien heb ik er nu meer geduld voor, ik weet het niet. En kijk eens naar het puntje van de snavel. Niet slecht. Ook de rondjes zijn aardig gelukt. Ik denk dat ik toch met needle turn appliqué verder ga (o:

Today we had a beautiful day. Lots of sun and even nice and warm. In the morning Ger and I took a walk with Bibi. Luckily Ger's back is doing much better and Bibi seems to have more energy than ever...

Vandaag was een prachtige dag. Veel zon en het was ook nog eens lekker warm. Vanochtend zijn Ger en ik lekker met Bibi gaan lopen. Gelukkig gaat het weer een stuk beter met Gers rug en met Bibi schijnt het weer een stuk beter te gaan ...

This week Mollie and Abbie posted about The Giving Heart Project in Richmond. Please read their post and maybe you can find some time to make a 4" square stitchery.

Deze week hebben Mollie en Abbie geschreven over The Giving Heart Project in Richmond. Wanneer je naar de links gaat, kun je er meer over lezen. Misschien kun je nog wat tijd vinden, een 4" vierkant te stitchen.
