Geskenke

Ons was vir 'n baie kort besoek in Suid-Afrika gewees, waar ons 2 troues bygewoon het, en natuurlik 'n blits besoek aan die familie gemaak het. Tydens ons besoek, het ek die geleentheid gehad om Broer 1 se kwilt aan hom te oorhandig. Noodloos om te sê dat hy was baie opgewonde daaroor, en het reeds beplan wanneer en waar hy dit gaan gebruik :)

We were for a short visit in South Africa, where we attended 2 weddings and of course a quick visit to the family. During our visit, I had the opportunity to present Brother 1 with his quilt. Needless to say that he was very excited and already planned when and where to use the quilt :)


Ook, tydens ons besoek, het ek die voorreg gehad om 'n mede-blogger te besoek. Ek het Karin se blog Beary Quilts ontdek op Quilting Bloggers. Min het ek geweet dat Karin baie naby aan ons familie bly, en ons het afgespreek om mekaar te ontmoet. Sy was so gaaf om 'n oulike sakkie vir my te maak. Julle kan die volle verhaal lees op haar blog. Nogmaals baie dankie, Karin, vir hierdie geskenkie. Jy is baie dierbaar!

Also, during our visit, I had the privilege of visiting a fellow blogger. I discovered Karin's blog Beary Quilts on Quilting Bloggers. I never thought that Karin would live so close to our family, and a visit was in order. She  made this cute pouch for me. You can read all about it on her blog. Again, thank you Karin for this gift. You are a dear!


Laastens, vandag het ek uitgesit om verder aan my Bloggers BOM kwilt te werk, maar ek het eerder in 'n tydskrif rondgeblaai en 'n oulike idee vir 'n geskenk gesien. Ek het bietjie gesukkel, en het die heel dag geneem om die selfoon sakkie te maak. Dis veronderstel om aan iemand te gaan wat binne-kort vertrek op vakansie, maar ek dink ek sal dit moet oordoen, want ek is nie baie tevrede met die eindresultaat nie. Dis goed vir myself, maar nie as ek dit wil weggee nie. Die patroon het ek in die Australian Homespun tydskrif (Vol 12.12- Summer Issue) gesien. Ek het egter 'n knopie aangewerk, waar die patroon vir 'n knippie voorsiening maak.

Lastly, I had put today aside to continue working on my Bloggers BOM quilt. However, I paged through a magazine and saw this cute idea for a gift. I had some trouble with it, and it took me the whole day to make this cellphone bag. It is suppose to go to someone who is leaving for holiday, but I think I will have to redo it, as I am not very satisfied with it. It is o.k. for me, but not if I want to give it so someone. I saw the pattern in the Australian Homespun magazine (Vol. 12.12 - The Summer Issue). I, however, added a button where the pattern provided for a snap fastener.


Tot volgende keer!

Until later!
