Don't Walk Behind Me

Life is such a gift, when you are blessed with a friend.
A friend who will lift you when you are down,
and shoulder the need for leaning.
To those I love,
I will walk beside you, and move mountains if needs be.
I will not walk away when times of trouble arrives,
and I will celebrate you when you succeed in all you wish to achieve.

Baa Baa Bag full of yarns....

I have my little BaaBaa Bag full of yummy yarns.
Ready to work on my granny square bed runner. I think I am nearly ready, nearly done.

The runner can be seen on the back.
I have been itching to crochet the scalloped edge. But have not decided how yet. Or what colours.
Decisions decisions.
I made the Baa Baa bag a while ago, and is just perfect to hold my cotton yarns.
Needless to say it is not the only yarn I have (sneaks a peek at the very large basket on the floor)
One can never have enough yarn. Right?

Home Sweet Home dangles ♥


Oh dear sewing machine you have been missed much!
It was so nice to sit and sew again. It has been too long.
I made some soft cotton dangles again, and it was a perfect little summer afternoon.
Me and the machine with hot tea keeping me company.
I have used one of my watercolour illustrations on the cotton fabric.
If you would like to have one of the dangles as a key-companion,
please visit my shop online.
It is funny how something so simple as sewing can be such a joy.
I am hoping the hot weather will ease up a little, though.
Sewing with fans blowing is not the easiest of tasks.

Summer Smiles

Summer Smiles in Flowers
And such a lovely Summer it is.
Spending my days surrounded with those I love.
The Season is blessing us with such light

Crocheting has become my sedative, my medicine. Finding calm in the storm.
Adding colour bursts. Breathing in and breathing out. This sense of horrible limbo,
being nowhere and everywhere at the same time. Not knowing what life has in store for us.
Feeling crippled by the experience.
So I crochet.
It keeps me calm.

Today is a perfect little day to just switch off from every day worries.
To turn on the coffee maker and get the big basket with yarns out.
Let the world be the world. And to just sit and let the day be the day.
The big man has taken one of the little men out for the day.
This little man is without a doubt a chatter box supreme.
His absence is definitely making the house quiet.
I think I shall just sit here like a little mouse, in this quiet house,
and sip in the silence

... today I am happily tinkering away.
Print, cut, create, wrap, pack, post.
Feels good to be busy.
Thank you to all the wonderful emails and comments.
So grateful x

Sometimes we have to be reminded
that we are perfect just the way we are.
Don't forget that it is all the bits about you,
make you.
And that is exactly the way you are supposed to be.

Quiet time

... some quiet time.
With a storm brewing, and some cups appearing on paper.
Today is good day

Sewing here I come

It is with great joy I got some new fabrics today.
I found a lovely little patchwork shop hidden in a little street in a little town. 
It might just be me, who knows, but I got a happiness-thing going
on with wonderful fabrics. Admittedly there are other things on my
'happiness-thing' list, such as pens and papers, and yummy yarns
and vibrant aquarel paints. And (needless) to say Maribou chocolate
and licorice yogi tea...... 

But oh my, these are definitely making me happy ♥
Off to sew soon

Itty Bitty Cotton labels

I have been bitten by the bug to sew again!
(thank you Debs Young ♥) and -of course- I had to make some new little
labels to add to my new project.
I do love this kind of little label so much.
I hope to be able to get the sewing machine out this weekend and
start in earnest. *nods* I am excited.
Oh and by the way, if you would like to have your own little
labels made, just give me a shout.
