My pincushion

I don’t know for how long I had this pincushion but I got it when I was a child. It has followed me through the years and I’m quite convinced that it will follow me for the rest of my life. I love it!

Timotei has done a lovely pincushion using a glass jar.

flickr you can see a lot of pincushions!

Finally I did some sewing this evening! I haven't had the time to be crafty for a long time now. I sewed a lampshade for the kitchen. It was very easy and didn’t take too long time to do. Hopefully I can sew a kitchen curtain tomorrow in the same fabric, if I find the time…

I really want you to discover this great artist, Stephanie Pui-Mun Law and her website Shadowscapes. She is extremely talented, I wish I could paint with watercolours as she is doing! She paints faeries, creatures, angels and much more and they are so colourful and vibrant. Take time to go through her gallery, you can sit for hours and just dream of lands beyond…

Baby Cool

This book I bought a couple of days ago. I love to redo things and that is what this book shows you how to do. A t-shirt can turn into a pyjama or a cool dress. I think I will try to do a dress for my daughter. Maybe a summer dress…

Baby Cool : Sy nytt av gammalt
Authors: Lindén Ivarsson, Anna-Stina, Sandström Hallberg, Nina
Alfabeta, Sverige, 2006 (ISBN 9150106848)

The last day of Christmas

Today it is in Sweden something we call “Tjugondedag Knut”. It is 20 days after Christmas and we dance the Christmas out. We take away all the Christmas decorations and dance around the Christmas tree and eat candy.

Illustration Friday (buzz)

What a suitable topic for me! Because I’m a bumblebee and I love the buzz!

Here is my logo

… and here is a self-portrait from my sketchbook

I thought I should share some of the things I find on the Internet with you. I’ve made a new category named links where I will post interesting and cool sites.

First out is Posy. She has a blog where she shows her home, things that she makes and lots of other stuff. Visit her, you will not be disappointed!

Happy New Year!

I wish to thank you all that have read and comment on my blog the past year. It’s greatly appreciated!

My sister’s birthday was a couple of months a go but she got her gift from me yesterday… It’s our grandmother’s buttons and laces that I’ve used. My sister’s initial is K.
