December was quite lovely, but today is lovely too

Holidays being the thing of the past, I’m slowly getting back to using my free time wisely. Hmmmm. Wiser. Ok, a bit wiser. My book of ideas has got fuller over the last couple of weeks, so there should be, and I only hope there will be, new things made for my shop. I’ve noticed, I have this annoying tendency to speak out too loud before I actually have anything to prove my big words with, so bear with me while I’m looking for ways to improve that πŸ˜‰ New things and those free patterns (don’t remind me how long ago I’ve promissed them to you)… are coming!

So now, I’ve made possibly the last hedgehogs (for a while) Tom, Tim, Ted

Molly still needs to be dressed

Big Eeva is finished by now, but she’s gonna be part of a set, so I sill have lots to do before she and Molly are’ offered in my shop.

Osvald

bob is hanging out...

Is not the one pictured here, but from the same family, so won’t look very different and yes, as promised – he’s gonna end up being somebody’s (yours?) for free.

Little Osvald is nothing but giggles with Bob on my wall. No idea what they both are on about, but It’s fun making these and it’s definitely fun having them around the house, puts a smile on your face and makes it wider if there already was one πŸ˜‰ . The production is gonna start again very soon, anyone wanting to reserve a hedgehogΒ  – drop me a line and I’ll do my best.

Now then, Osvald is up for grabs – just leave a comment and keep as many fingers crossed as you can πŸ˜‰ We gonna choose an owner for this boy next Thursday the 27th. Good luck!

After the rain the sky will shine and that’s so beautifull… I put headphones on and imagine myself walking on that white soft carpet that covers the sky. Nothing else arround you, no other sounds. The mind is free. Breath in,Β  close your eyes and spin arround… runn arround, leave footprints, move clouds with hands, make patterns and watch how the wind customizes it all. I love it. The sky, the clouds and happy me…

Handmade

Well it’s not much, but let’s say it’s not the quantity, but the quality what we count πŸ˜‰ New teddies almost popping into my etsy shop:

first up is Oak with Dutsy (a talking parrot who only says nice things, so far)

then we have Nidas and tiny Sol (duckling who thinks Nidas is his mom)

Bigger boys:

no name 1

no name 2

no name 3

I’ve also finished one of the two things I’ve started knitting

It was for my little set – all for a gorgeous little boy Emlyn, our friend’s first born

I’m quite proud of my linen bibs πŸ™‚

I admit, I like making small things mainly because I like fitting with tiny details and love sowing by hand, so anything that requires sowing machine is a much bigger challenge for me, but I’m getting there :).Β  I made my first mini linen trousers, crap picture, but those pants are definitely not! πŸ™‚

To be continued…

One two three

I read somewhere, that around one month priory to your birthday you’re supposed to take it all easy, as apparently it’s quite a serious time, where no big decisions, plans, acts are recommended… It’s all about preserving, thinking, charging up and leaving the lot for latter. And all of the above was crossed over in my life last week. Will report later if that turned to be a good thing. Phew. Any volunteers to keep fingers crossed for me?

Here are a couple of things I’m allowed to talk about:

I’ve managed to bake 53 cookie medals (had to modify the recipe to use far less sugar and add some lovely spices) for kids from my son’s school for a fun sporty afternoon in a park that me and my darling have pooled together (I’m too proud to not to mention it – sorry!!! πŸ™‚ ).

the same day I’ve also made bagels (for the very first time). Bread machine guys! I’m not gonna go on how delicious they were… very very… very…

And yes, at last, I’ve made toys and they are not bears!

What do you think? Opinions needed πŸ˜‰ I think I’m going to explore more outside the teddy theme πŸ™‚ That doesn’t mean I’m saying ‘no more’ to my grizzly bears πŸ™‚

OK. That will have to be it for now. Will be back next week. Enjoy yours! x

Nature is good, but what is really good – it’s me in it.

I grew up in a town, far away from UK (having said that, most of my summers were spent in a very green and very beautiful big village and I honestly loved it). In my teens I moved to even bigger town. After that there was life in a relatively small capital. The next step was London. I guess from here it will go backwards… Or that’s what I hope for. I love love London, also because we have a lot of parks and quite a few of them are truly amazing, but my soul is longing for a quieter, greener and more relaxed life. And I wish my kids grow up with far more freedom and in touch with dear nature.

I love trees

All of them

I want to plant some.

Nature aside, my toys are finally in the shop.

my first ever book I wrote…

Have a lovely week!
