stitch me up bloghop - and it is my day too!!!

Herzlich Willkommen zum ersten Tag vom stitch me up Bloghop.
 Es ist auch gerade mein Tag und ich freu mich sehr dabei sein zu dürfen.
Welcome to the first day of the stitch me up blog hop. 
It is also my day and I am very happy to be a part of it.

Es war gar nicht leicht aus den 8 zugesandten Mustern dasjenige herauszupicken welches mir am besten gefiel. Vielen Dank an Mme Samm , Cyndi  und Debbie für die tollen Muster.
It was not an easy task to decide which of the 8  patterns to stitch. Thank you so much Mme Samm , Cyndi and Debbie for the lovely patterns!
Auf Anhieb aber wusste ich, dass ich diese Lady sticken möchte. Ich hatte auch schon die Stöffchen im Kopf und ein passendes Projekt: Nämlich einen Beutel, indem unsere Tochter auf Reisen all ihren Krimskrams verräumen könnte.
But from the beginning I new, that I wanted to stitch this lady. I already had the fabrics in my mind and also a suitable project: a drawstring bag for our daughter where she could put all the small stuff when she is travelling.
 Der Henkel ist super praktisch und man kann den Beutel mit dem Krimskrams gleich irgendwo aufhängen.
The fabric handle is very practical and you can hang the bag with all the small stuff wherever it is needed.
 Die Grösse des Beutels ist genial und man könnte sogar ein ganzes Paar elegante Schuhe darin verstauen.
The size of the bag is great and it would even be possible to fit a pair of elegant shoes into it.

 Meine Tochter war zwar vom Beutel ganz begeistert, aber meine Stoffwahl war nicht so ihr Ding! Pink und hellblau ist im Moment out, lach!
Sie meinte, diese Lady sehe sehr französisch aus, was mich dazu führte, ruck zuck einen neuen Beutel nach ihrem Geschmack zu nähen.
Although my daughter was quite happy with the bag ,  my fabric choice was not her taste! Pink and light blue are out at the moment, lol! 
She mentionned that the lady looks quite french which made me just sew another bag, after her taste.
 Ein paar French General Stöffchen und ein französischer Text und der Beutel sieht doch ganz französisch aus, oder?
Some fabrics by French General with  a sentence in french makes the bag look quite french, doesn't it?
 Nun haben wir beide einen und sind glücklich!Lach!
Now we both have one and we are happy! Lol!
 Das Muster des Beutels findet ihr gratis hier bei Allpeoplequilt!
The pattern for the bag you can find here at allpeoplequilt!

 Dann war da weiter dieses Blumenmuster.
Then there was this flower pattern.


 Ich habe letztes Jahr meinen ersten crazy quiltblock genäht und bin total begeistert!
Last year I learned to sew and stitch my first crazy block and I love it!
Ich fande die Blumenranke passt als Bordüre gut dazu und so ist dieser kleine Quilt entstanden.
 I found that this flowerborder would fit the block nicely and so I came up with this little quilt.
Dieser Spruch ist mir im Moment gerade persönlich zur Herausforderung geworden. Er ist leicht gesagt aber nicht ganz so leicht im Alltag gelebt!
This quote became a personal challenge for me right now. It is easy to say but not that easy to live by!
 Der gepunktete Rand schrie fast nach einer Verzierung und so habe ich ein paar Blümchen draufgequiltet.
The dotty border was just calling for embellishement and so I quilted those flowers around some of the dots.
 Und so sieht mein Dekoecken über unserem Computer momentan aus.
And this is how my deco corner above our computer looks at the moment.
Und dies hier ist mein drittes Projekt!
And this is my third project.
Darf ich vorstellen: mein neuer Helfer - Charlie, die Eule
May I introduce my new helper - Charlie, the owl
Ich habe die Eule nach dem Muster aus dem Heft "Patchwork spezial, die 100 besten Ideen" genäht. Leider hatte ich nicht das passende Vlies und musste einsehen, dass das nie funktionieren wird.Viel zu weich! So habe ich kurzerhand eine Blechdose hervorgeholt und die einzelnen Teile um die Dose genäht. Nun habe ich einen stabilen Utensilo der mir Freude macht! Ist er nicht goldig?
I followed the pattern for the owl, which I found in the German magazin "patchwork special, the best 100 ideas". Sadly I din't have the batting suggested and realised, that it will never work with the one I used. Much too soft! So I took a tin and sewed the pieces around it. Now I have a strong  utensilo which I really love. Isn't he cute?
Und hier ist ein Sessel in Arbeit,  das wird noch etwas dauern, lach!
And here is a chair still under construction,  this will still take some time, lol!
sorry can't turn it right
Vielen Dank fürs hereinschauen! Und ein herzliches Danke auch an Mme Samm and Jane unsere Cheerleaderin für diesen Hop!
Thank you so much for visiting! And a big thank you  also to Mme Samm and Jane our cheerleader for this hop!

Well you and I were thinking the same as I too chose the same two embroideries. I only did the chair and left out the dress form too. I also thought the lady looked like she was French as you will see when you visit my blog. Great minds think alike as they say. Your bags are wonderful.
