WOYWW 126 – It’s beginning to ...

Goedemorgen woensdag en, natuurlijk, goedemorgen jullie WOYWW fans. Weer een dag gevuld met creativieve uitspattingen en heel veel inspiratie. Wanneer je deze WOYWW-link volgt, kom je meer te weet over Julia's place en al deze bureaubladen.

Good morning Wednesday and, of course, good morning to all of you WOYWW enthusiasts. Another day packed with crafting and a lot of inspiration. Follow this WOYWW-link to find out more about Julia’s place and all these desks.

Vandaag is er op mijn bureaublad steeds meer te vinden dat te maken heeft met Kerst. Maar geen papier en inkt deze woensdag, wel het zachte stof. Op mijn eerst foto vind je allerlei materialen die ik nodig heb om Kerstvogeltjes te maken. Ik moet er 13 maken, omdat het kleine presentjes zijn voor de dames van mijn Quiltclub. Rond Kerst organiseren we gezamenlijk, ieder jaar, een KerstBrunch. Iedereen maakt een gerecht voor de brunch en met 13 verschillende gerechten is er meer dan voldoende voor iedereen.

Today you see my desk filled with more and more Christmas stuff. No paper and ink this Wednesday, but the softness of fabric.  In my first picture you can see the materials I need to make some Christmas Birds. I have to make 13 of them, because these are small presents for the ladies from my Quilting Group. At Christmas we organise a Christmas Brunch with all of us. Everyone makes something for the brunch and with 13 dishes there’s more than enough for all of us.

Op deze volgende foto ligt een vogel onder de naaimachine. Het is belangrijk dat je heel precies over de lijn naait, omdat anders het vogeltje niet z'n perfecte vorm krijgt.

In the next picture you can see a bird lying on the sewing machine. You have to do it very carefully, otherwise the birds won’t have a perfect shape.

En hier zien jullie mijn grote hulp, altijd bereid om een extra handje toe te steken (of moet ik een pootje zeggen ?!) Bij het maken van deze vogels wil zij graag een extra handje meehelpen, omdat dit natuurlijk haar favoriete onderwerp is LOL.

And here you see my great help, always willing to give an extra hand (or do I say paw?!). On this subject she especially wants to give her advice to me, as birds are her favourite LOL.

Na het naaien van alle vogels begint de echte pret. Het binnenste buiten keren behoort nu eenmaal niet tot mijn favoriete klusjes, zeker niet wanneer ze zo'n lange staart hebben. Maar nadat deze klus is geklaard worden de vogels gevuld. Maar hoeveel fiber moet ik erin stoppen?
Mijn steun en toeverlaat geeft mij de tip om ze vooral groot en flink te vullen.... want zo heeft zij ze het liefst (mmmm). Oké , opschieten dus maar. Ik hoop dat ik alle vogels deze week af krijg, zodat ik ze volgende week, in mijn nieuwe blognieuws, aan jullie kan laten zien.

Have a happy and crafty Wednesday.

After sewing all the birds then the real fun begins. Turning all these guys the right side out is not my favourite job, because they have such long tails. After that job is done I have to fill them. But how much fibre do I have to put in? My big helper adviced me to make them big…. as that’s her favourite (yummy). Ok, better hurry up then! I hope I can finish the job this week and show you the results in my post next week.

Have a happy and crafty Wednesday.

THey'll make really lovely presents Franka, lovely idea. I disagree with the pussycat though - not too thin, not too fat..!

Ha ha, your helper likes birds Franka, now I wonder why that might be? you are all having fun and it is really nice to have helpers, love Shaz in oz.x

Lunch Lady Jan zei

Ha! Love your helper - cats just love to be where the action is, eh?? I know all about careful sewing with the machine, you have to take it steady when making hearts as well. Curves are tricky but I've found that clipping the seam allowances afterwards makes a big difference to the look. And I've used quite a bit of stuffing over the past few weeks too = LOL!!
Hugs, LLJ xx

Beautiful little helper, I hope you make her a birdy to play with too! The fabrics are very pretty too.

Hi Franka, what lovely little birds! Such a cute idea. Kitties do love to "help," don't they! If they can't play with real live birds, fabric ones will have to do! Happy WOYWW, Shoshi #67

Angie zei

Those birds look brilliant ...but a lot of hard work ....have to say that big helper looks contented ...as though he has actually eaten a bird. lol

Tertia zei

I think that you should make 14 birds. For two reasons: Number 1, 13 is an unlucky number and number 2, your helper deserve one to play with, don't you think?

BetteK zei

I LoVe your birds and I think your quilting ladies will just love them! I have been to your beautiful country a couple of times and just love it. We even tried to learn Dutch once but it was far too hard! Debbie #77

Lovely fabrics on your desk this week, Franka, and your birds are sweet. Your little helper is looks very similar to The Boss, who is also only too happy to lend a helping hand when there is something on the workdesk that takes her fancy. The brunch sounds fun. Have a great week. Elizabeth x #59

I love your birdies. Lovely fabrics. That would make a great project for our quilting group. We usually do a little fun project before our Christmas Lunch.

Gorgeous fabrics and that helper of yours is pretty cute also. Hope you have a great week. Thanks for sharing. Vickie #68

Angelfish zei

What a lovely 'helper' you have there! The birds look fiddly, but well worth the effort. Hope to see the finished product sometime.

Sarah zei

I've been looking at the lovely birds and admiring your wonderful cat all week and realise I didn't say Hi! Such amusing photos and so playful. The birds are looking really festive and nice and fat - are they done yet? Look forward to seeing the finished project which will make fabulous gifts!
