...and just in case you guys are as tired of the April weather as we are...never forget...April showers bring May flowers and without rain you wouldn´t be able to jump into puddles and dance in the rain ;)
It seems to be ages again since my last blog post! But sometimes life just happens, right?! Anyways, here are some treasures that I wanted to show you for ages! They come from my sweet friend Andrea in the USA. Our friendship started as an internet friendship and officially is a "real-life-friendship" and "Friends-for-life-friendship" now :) Hooray! Andrea is one of the sweetest people I ever met and I cant wait to give her a hug again!
She made a drop-dead-gorgeous sew together bag for me, that is well-used and treasured:
Look at this super duper amazingly cute apple pincushion!!!
...and the little red riding hood cross stitch that is living in Jamie´s room now...
...and a mug rug...that is too precious to put a mug on it so we decided it needs to be treated like a mini quilt and go up on the wall of minis!!!
I feel truly blessed to have such a sweet and thoughtful and amazing friend!!!
Have a gorgeous start into the new week everyone!!!
First of all - a big thank you that you still stick with me reading this blog even if the last blog post happened to be written a couple of weeks ago! I am so sorry!
But hey, at least I got some fun things to show you! Let´s start with a swap I sent out in the beginning of January to my dear swap partner in the USA.
She didnt know who was sewing for her, it was supposed to be a surprise but she had a mosaic with things she loves and could use. This little woodland fox made an appearance in her favorites a couple of times so I thought it would be perfect to give her a winter wonderland fox pillow!
She also asked for some kind of storage for her crochet and knitting needles and yarn and all those odds and ends that you keep piling up when you knit and crochet. So I made her a basket to hold all her treasures as well as wips :)
This is the other side:
Also Miss Jamie is turning into an ambitious little baker and is often pretty busy illustrating a recipe book of her own!
Thanks for being such great readers!!! Have an awesome weekend!!!
I really really reaaaaally wanted to show you what we did for an advent calendar for Jamie this year. I know most of my American friends dont do advent calendars, but it is such a sweet thing for the little ones (and the adults too really!). You get to "open one door" of your advent calendar each day from the 1st of December up to christmas on the 24th to find a little treat each day. This year Jamie got an enchanting north pole one!
There is the house of Mr. and Mrs.Clause...
...signs to point out what else to find...
...the pink bakery to get a lot of special sweet treats...
...and a group of glittery penguins...
...as well as a very grumpy Sven...i dont know if he´s being grumpy because he got to carry several packages on his back or because he got turned into a gift for the 24th of December lol
