Hi and welcome all my dear readers and new visitors! Monday morning and new week front of us … hopefully full of exiting, enjoyable things waiting for us! I had a sentence: ‘summer is for colours – more or less’ in my mind and now it’s time for less colours …
I feel that I have so many photos and things to show you and always many of them have to wait ‘better’ moment (still many from Finland, too). But because I haven’t shown you much sewing lately, I thought you would like to see what has been bothering my mind many days. Finally yesterday I took these materials to my cutting mat …
Natural colours and of course white, this time in vintage crochet and Aurifil wool thread n:o 12. I got this lovely thread from Leona at ‘Leona’s Quilting Adventure’ but I haven’t tried it yet. Do you know if I could quilt with that thread by machine or is better just for hand quilting? And those little thimbles – they are my treasures! I got them from my godmother and the dark one was my grandmother’s! It’s silver and has a Lily on it!
I haven’t learnt to use thimbles but I would like to find a leather one – I have seen them in some blogs and they look more practical and comfortable.
New crab bag is already in my shop and inspired by those sweet, little crabs I made a treasury list : “Hey, there is a crab!” with crab things! I’m sorry if I can’t make this link work. You can find treasury lists always on a shop owner’s page. I found crabs on fabric, painting, decoration, wall art, pouch, bib, cards, bag etc.
I don’t remember if I have told to you, why I named my shop TEJESARITA. I have two names Teje Sarita, as usually in Finland, even mostly we use only the first one. Teje was too short name for a shop and also if you google it, you get millions of results because Teje was Tutankhamon’s grandmother in Egyptian history!
In the morning I came to my blog just to find out that I had huge amount visitors! Really a lot! And of course I was curious to learn how they found my blog and the path lead to this wonderful site: ‘Sewing Craftgossip’! They had featured my ‘2 in 1’ make-up bags HERE! Thank you so much! If you like to make bag like this, you can find my tutorial HERE!
Then I would like to tell and remind you about the ‘Quilting Bloggers’! That’s the great site where happens a lot – quilting, weekly themed contests, give aways, voting, presents etc.! You can add your quilting blog there – the more the merrier! Find out who else is blogging from your country!
If you are a crochet person … or a mice peerson … or just love cute funny creations, you need to see what Penny has crocheted! I’m totally in love with her mice!!! HERE and HERE!
Sometimes I have more time to surf in etsy and sometimes less. Today almost the first thing I saw, was the most loveable Foxy! It’s an i-phone case and bag! That shop is full of most beautiful animal themed bags! I would love to get a Husky or a Wolf and of course that Foxy! Look HERE!
I think here you have enough reading for today, so I’ll save the rest for the next time.
I wish you wonderful week! Thank you for stopping by and for your lovely comments! Every day I see Nelli sleeping in different places so I leave you with her yesterday afternoon nap – under the geranium!
Hello Teje Your lace is very beautiful, and I look foward to seeing what you create using it. I love the crab bags they are so fresh and summery and beautifully made too. How blissfully comfortable Nelli looks there under the geraniums:) Wishing you a happy, creative week, dear Teje!
Nelli has certainly found the perfect spot! I love the vintage doily and it looks great with the fabrics you’ve chosen. Very stylish.
How wonderful that you have your grandmother’s timble. I only use little metal ones, so I’m curious about leather ones. Thank you for all the links.
WELCOME AND THANK YOU FOR YOUR VISIT!
I am a Finnish woman living in Greece! My days are filled with sewing, quilting and other crafts.
