Christmas is coming

It has been more than a month since I had my last blog post. How time flies. I have been quite busy with smaller projects and I have earned my second Craft Olympic Athlete thimble with Melanie's challenge

Meer dan een maand geleden heb ik voor het laatst een bericht geschreven. Hoe de tijd toch vliegt. Ik ben vooral met kleinere projecten bezig geweest en heb mijn tweede Craft Olympic Athlete thimble voor Melanie's challenge verdiend.





Above you can see an Advent calendar stitchery I started on December 1. As you can see, I finished my 9 and am now working on my 10th. You can find the pattern here. And you might also want to visit Elena's blog. She has a lovely story to each little ornament.

Hierboven zie je de Advent kalender waarmee ik 1 december begonnen ben. Voor iedere dag een kruissteekwerkje. Het patroon kun je hier vinden. En ga ook eens naar Elena's blog. Bij ieder ornamentje schrijft een een klein verhaaltje. Heel leuk!





For a dear friend of mine I made this Advent calendar. It was lots of fun to make! You can find the pattern  here.

Voor een lieve vriendin heb ik deze Advent kalender gemaakt. Heel leuk te doen. Het hart, oorspronkelijk voor kaarten, heb ik bij Action kunnen vinden. Het patroon voor de zakjes kun je hier vinden.




With these flowers I earned my second thimble. I made the flowers with my new Janome punch machien. These are so much fun to make! Almost addictive.

Met deze bloemen heb ik mijn tweede thimble verdiend. De bloemen heb ik gemaakt met mijn nieuwe Janome punchmachine. Dit is zo leuk te doen. Bijna verslavend.  





A friend of ours turned 60 in November. Since I couldn't find a nice card, I decided to make these two owls.  I think this does look better (o:

Een vriend van ons is in november 60 geworden. Omdat ik echt geen leuke kaart kon vinden, heb ik deze twee uiltjes gemaakt. Dit is toch veel leuker! 




This is the FQS Mystery BOM 2011. All finished to be sent off to Anne at Maple Leaf. Once again she did a wonderful job in quilting. I will show you the whole quilt, once I am done with the binding...

Dit is de FQS Mystery BOM 2011. Helemaal klaar om verstuurd te worden. Ondertussen heeft Anne van Maple Leaf hem weer prachtig gequilt. Ik laat jullie de quilt in zijn geheel zien, als de bies er ook eenmaal aan zit...

Thank you so much for the flower brooch. I have added this post to the sidebar on my blog for all the Craft Athletes. What lovely advent calendars. Nice idea to do a cross stitch a day for one of them. I'm looking forward to seeing the finished quilt.

Wat leuk om jouw fairytale advent borduurtjes in een kleur te zien. Ik zelf ben ze aan het maken met hand geverfd garen. Ik ben iets later begonnen en heb vandaag dag 4 en 5 gepost.
