I’ve been stitching intensively for the last two nights. You can see my first trial a couple of post ago where I’ve shown one picture… since then I had to change the process a bit and start again, but at last we have the result – a place mat  for my youngest who loves almost all living creatures and trains 🙂 And loves to eat.

i can'tbelieve i've managed...

have a closer look

Stitching is easy, only getting everything ready for it takes a bit of time: I had to enlarge the original picture (below), cut out all the felt pieces I wanted on my mat and just stitch them all on. Now my older boy wants a mat too, so the same process only with a different theme is awaiting me…

it’s from this beautiful Japanese magazine I’ve treated myself to idees

Looking at this and other Japanese craft magazines I have (I’m gonna share some favourites here with you one day), I get so built up to make things… Once I get another place mat done, I’ve been wanting to make some simple linen ones for all of us, I want lunch bags for my boys, pencil cases, mini pouches, baby stuff and new toys… cushions, clothes…. jewlery! 🙂 Yes…

Will see how far I’m gonna get with my crafty hopes, kids holidays begin from Monday :).  I still haven’t prepared my promised free patterns for you…  but it will come. It will.

btw. if you like fish and don’t mind the soft ones, udder is offering a great give way!

Enjoy your day! x

Especially in the night and morning, so we have been hoping for a white color to dominate the outside, but so far we only find some of the beautiful traces dear frost leaves here and there…

My oldest son has ‘snow’ on his very short Christmas wish list, so dear Winter come out all dressed up in white for all of us 🙂

cold sweat

I so love this December. With its beautiful weather, with its festive mood and so many uplifting things around. I’ve taken a break from (not so intense  in any way) crafting for others and am just giving myself more  freedom to do things that I miss.  I’m reading more. I’m back to doing my morning yoga. I’m writing… lining up some fresh ideas for my shop,  my future and just am hanging out with my dearests.  Playing (and relaxing at the same time, the best game to get hooked on with your kid). I’m making something for my sons

wipHope you are in good spirits too. Have a relaxing weekend!

P.S. thank you for your comments, it’s very much appreciated! Keep on talking to me 😉
