cheer up

oke...the weather here in sweden is something special. after living here for almost two years I understand why the swedish people love to talk about the weather. latetly it has been only grey skys, no sun for three weeks now, the same grey sky every day! and i can tell you that doesn't help for a good mood. so I decided to cheer up my day by making a new keycord and a matching bracelet. the swedish dalahast on the ribbon makes me smill every time I use my keys now.

happy birthday boy

yesterday we celebrated stije's birthday with his friends. he was the happiest boy on earth, so great to see. we did lots of games, they made a big drawing of a zoo together and I face painted all the children. what more can you wish as a six year old boy.

working on assignment

I just love making something on assignment. Sarah picked these two embroideries and together we decided what shape and color. the "peacock" and "lady in love" are now on it's way to their new owner.

only one

it wasn't difficult to pick a winner for the felt basket, because there was only one response ;-). so, Ingrid, the felt basket is yours and i very glad that it will get a good destination at kindercentrum mergelland! can you please mail me your address at
at vlijtig i found this great tutorials to make all kind of bracelets. since I am not so good in crochet, knitting or anything else with threads and making knots, this macrame bracelet was a big challenge for me. it turned out way too short, but never the less i am happy i was able to make it proper.

felt basket

Do you have a purpose for this felt basket, measuring 11 cm wide and 9 cm high? please let me know and maybe you will get this basket. I made it from a piece of felt, which I had made a long time ago without any purpose. making this basket, made me realize that I don't have a purpose for the basket either ;-)) that's why I would love to give it away! leave your comment before 10 february and I will announce the winner 11 february.

doggy bag

this cute dog kept staring at me, from the floor in my studio and I was fascinated by the look in her eyes and by the pink ribbon in her hair. I decided to make a small shoulder bag with it. a friend saw it and wanted to buy it immediately for her daughter. happy she found a new home straight away..but also a little sad she is leaving, after being on my floor for a long time.
