Kwilt in aksie

Vanoggend kry ek 'n epos vanaf Broer 2, om dankie te sê vir sy kwilt, wat hy verlede week ontvang het. Hy vertel dat hy dit geneem het op 'n piekniek en dat hy baie komplimente daaroor gekry het. Dis mos wat elke kwilter wil hoor, of hoe?

Ek is bly, Boetie, dat jy jou kwilt geniet. Mag julle nog baie gelukkige tye saam beleef!


Geniet jul Sondag!

This morning I got an email from Brother 2, thanking me for his quilt which he received last week. He said that he took it with him on a picknick and that he received a lot of compliments on it. Isn't that what all quilters want to hear?

I am glad, Brother, that you are enjoying your quilt. May you have many more wonderful times together!

Enjoy your Sunday!

Broer 2 se kwilt is klaar

Broer 2 se kwilt is uiteindelik klaar en hang op die wasgoedlyn. Dit is so 'n plesier om die kwilt kant-en-klaar te sien. Ek hoop om dit hierdie naweek vir hom te gee.

Brother 2's quilt is finally finished and is hanging on the washing line. It is such a pleasure to see this quilt finished. I hope to give it to him this weekend.

Dis hier! Dis hier!!!!

Na 'n lang periode van oorwegings, spaar, internasionale betalings, eposse, doane, bloed, sweet, trane, ens., is my nuwe naaldwerk masjien uiteindelik hier. Doane het dit vanmiddag vrygestel en ek het dit onmiddelik gaan haal - weens verskeie redes was ek in die area gewees.

After a long period of considerations, saving, international payments, emails, customs, blood, sweat, tears, etc., my new sewing machine is finally here. Customs released it this afternoon and I went immediately to pick it up - for various reasons I was in the vicinity.

Is dit nie te pragtig nie?! Ek het die tafelblad bygekoop om die kwiltwerk aan groot projekte te vergemaklik.

Isn't it beautiful?! I bought the extension table to make the quilting on big projects easier.






Kom ons gaan kwilt!

Let's go quilt!

95% Klaar

Broer 2 se kwilt is feitlik klaar. Ek moet nou net die omboorsel aanwerk, die los gare insteek en dan die kwilt was. Ek hoop om genoeg tyd te hê om twee kussingslope ook te maak - maar met my seuntjie en die kat wat konstant my aandag vereis, is tyd 'n luukse.

Brother 2's quilt is nearly done. I just need to attached the binding, tuck in the loose threads and wash the quilt. I hope to have enough time to make two pillow casings as well - but with DS and the cat wanting my constant attention, time is a luxury.

Dis nie so sigbaar op die foto's nie, maar die buiterand se kwilt patroon is driehoeke en dan 3 paralelle lyne wat elke driehoek sny.

It doesn't show on the photos so well, but the border's quilting pattern is triangles and three parallel lines that cut each triangle.




Die kruissteek projek is ook nou klaar. Die skêr omhulsel se borduurwerk het goed verloop, maar ek het so bietjie aangejaag met die afwerking. Ek sal maar later weer een probeer en kyk of ek die afwerking beter kan doen.

The cross stitch project is also done. The embroidery for the scissor case came out well, but I messed up on the rest. I will make another one later and try to finish it off better.


Tot later!

Until later!
