Stuff



Inspired by Kath's post I dare showing a photo from my super messy craft office. Agree that sometimes there are so many unfinished projects and materials waiting to be used that it ..... well...takes away creativity. ...
Only for a while though.
Unfortunately, the things I do right now are not really relevant to show on this page: I do tons of christmas stuff! Why? Because they are meant to be shown in some magazines next christmas and should preferably be photographed now while the snow is here. Merry christmas! It is reaaly difficult to explain this to my kids...

Happy Birthday...




...to Pia, my good collegue and friend who turns 40 today! We have just visited the Stockholm Design Fair together . We were thrilled about all the products in lovely spring colours. This bouqet of 40 homemade flowers for her is trying to catch those colurs.

UHUUUU...


Theese night owls got very strong coffee this evening. That explains the (according to my husband) insane look in their eyes.

My Trendy Mother in Law!


At my 79 years old Mother in Law's house I saw a pillowcase. It was the hypest, coolest bedlinen pattern I had seen for a long time! And ...I was really wondering how she could be so trendy, considering not only her age, but also the fact that she lives in a sleepy village in Jutland (Denmarks countryside) while I do my shopping in Copenhagen and sorroundings.

Well, of course, the pillowcase happened to be an original from the 70's.....

Anyway she gave it to me and I have now tranformed it into a softie for Rubens teddy and some pantalettes for Kirsten.


The pantalettes are made with a beginner friendly pattern from onion.
The giraffe is freestyling...

Does anyone know a place for nostalgic sewing patterns for kids?
