it looks like spring has come her as well. although they predicted snow again for this weekend..hope it's not true. i made these cushion covers just in between other activities. so easy and nice to do. they are actually for our chairs. but they look nice on the couch as well. I love the fabrics, the one with the pots I bought in a fabric store here in sweden and the grey linen fabric is from ikea (so also swedish ;-))

yes, my sewing machine is back and working! so I could finish this zipperbag. while it was there unfinished on my desk, a mother of a friend saw it and was so enthusiastic about. I still had a piece of the embroidery left, so I made another zipperbag for her. they are almost twins.

once in a lifetime

this time no crafting but some images of our trip to Kiruna, in the north of sweden. we visited the icehotel, it was amazing! we even saw the northern lights two nights in a row, we were so lucky (no pictures of that, because it was very difficult to capture it, but soooo beautiful).

while I was making this zipper bag for a little birthday girl, my machine got stuck on the zipper. I had to tear the bag out of my machine...grrrr. I has to be fixed, but in the meantime I can't finish the bag. the lining still has to be made. I hate that I can't take it with me on my trip tomorrow. the good news is that despite the failure of my machine, the zipper is in it was right at the end.

little girl

I'm so exited to go to the netherlands. I'm looking forward to it and will meet a new little girl, puck! a daughter of a good friend. I made her a name stamp. They had such a lovely card, printed on wood!

counting down

next week I will go to the netherlands, alone! nice, some catch up time with friends. Opa decided to book a flight and come to sweden for a boys weekend! the boys are looking forward to that and because they kept asking me how many days until opa would come I made this count down calendar. I quickly drew the frames, stije made the pictures inside. nice corporation, stije did much better than mum!
