Hello and good new week to everyone! I know that you are busy like I am because even we can’t believe it, Christmas is getting closer and closer! I have squeezed a moment from here and there and made a new pouch!
I liked to make something with Christmas colours but something that is for all the year. The beige fabric is mix linen, then there are polka dots from ‘Fluffy Sheep Quilting’ and inside there are strawberries!
I have made more crochet butterflies and I like to use them on pouches.
I quilted the front and back pieces with fleece and fusible web, to be steady and thick. Backside is one colour mix linen and the size is 7,5″ x 7″.
Today it’s less words and more works but still I have to tell you about the weather … we had very strong and long lasting thunder during the weekend. It was raining so much and I felt it never stops. Finally yesterday it stopped and the rainbow appeared … full rainbow … two gold treasures I hope!
Now our garden is so full full of green! I think very soon we shall have fresh spinach and onions!
This Butterfly pouch is in my etsy shop and there are few more with other colours coming on. So I’ll better go to continue snow pinwheel decorations. Nero said to me also that he wants to be brushed so I go to brush my puppies.
Thank you for stopping by and for your sweet messages! I wish you a wonderful week without rain and thunder!
Vof vof vof!! What’s up friends?! Hope you are fine – I am! The weather is great – at night! In the day time it’s still really hot but in the evening I relax outside listening the sounds of my garden … birds on the trees, hedgehog walking around, cats in the neighbourhood and so on. Because here in my blog we like to show always even one craft, I’ll show you this …
In the evenings when I search my garden, Teje is making lavender pouches. There are now quite many, but still we need to fill them. I show you more later.
This summer my vegetable garden is not full of tomatoes, cucambers, paprikas, watermelons, strawberries etc. This year we didn’t put there anything because we (they) knew that it’s going to be very busy summer. But I found something …
Yeeeee, grapes! Heh – heh, this was few weeks ago, see I was still wearing my toeless sock! I love grapes but then we learnt that they are not good for dogs, so I don’t eat them anymor (only if I find them on my own from the garden).
I don’t believe – she bought pink wine! is there really pink wine? I don’t think greek language has pink word for wine. There is red = κοκκινο, ερυθρο (kokkino, erithro) and white = ασπρο, λευκο (aspro, lefko), but no pink!
Βθτ νεωερ … oups, sorry forgot to change the letters … ment to say, but never mind, if she likes pink. She went to ‘Jumbo’ for pillow firms and we got new toys – pink and blue!
Oh ssshhh, why this happens – again most fun part of my post is missing … I try again …
So here we have just got our new, clean toys …
We had so much fun and Hanna made some great piruets!
Look, she has been knitting! No, not she, but she …
We didn’t disturb her project and she has knitted a huge net during the last months!
We are not very good with not showing what we have done , but we’ll try, because there is something happy next week and it’s sort of related with ‘this’. So we save ‘this’ for then and I show you only a sneaky peaky!
Thank you so much for joining me today and writing so sweet and special messages! Now it’s again evening and I’m on my way to lie down outside and leave my writer to do some ironing.
Hugs and Kisses!!!!!!!!
Vof – vof – fovvv – vuf!!! Hi my friends, it’s Nero here and I’m really exited to see you and say few words after a long while! First I want to show what I made today just for you …
I send you million kisses with this flower to thank you for your sweet wishes to get well!!! Now I’m fine, still have a thin sock on my foot not to lick it, but the terrible thorn was found under my skin and it’s thrown far away and now I feel so great!!! They gave me the recular vaccination (using the opportunity because I was asleep) and the vet burnt something next to my ear – yach! it smelled awfull and hurt, but I couldn’t move because I was in so deep sleep and felt so tired. But now I’m all fixed and feeling fine and happy – enjoying my days with my sweet girls!
Everyone loves to play or what! I have my dearest ball – almost as old as I am and Hanna has the knotted rope. She is making happy dancing with that! Foxy enjoyes our company but doesn’t join the game – she is just walking between our legs! Teje is going to play with that box?! She said that it gave her a good idea, but first she has to iron – sorry about the mess behind us – she has set the ironing centre outside.
I think you could almost believe if I say that I re-fixed this shirt, because this is super extra easy and so fun! Only problem is that there is no scissors to fit my paw.
Just take your lovely summer shirt and sew patches over it! We chose patches from very thin fabric, that we have used to make a summer shirt few years ago. I love it because it’s like water colour painted and with beautiful colours.
Teje named this ‘Cinderella’ shirt! Those cute tuffels are from very big, thin scarf she bought one smmer and she made a summer shirt from that scarf. I don’t think you have seen it – I have to remind her to take photos because it’s quite fun with lots of tuffels on the down edge and the colour (it’s always about the colour here) is changing from white to ‘stormy’ blue.
New idea on Teje’s table … she was thinking long and hard something … finally yesterday she took some materials and began to try if that idea could work. I like the crochet flower and those ribbons could be fun to play – or no, I want those thread balls!
You know Diane? She is our blog friend and has a really beautiful blog ‘FROM BLANK PAGES’! She makes so beautiful quilts and has always great ideas like now hosting a new party! Idea Party! Doesn’t that sound so interesting and fun. Her idea is to share our ideas = from blank pages = our notebooks = ideas that often remins in our mind or notes but should be shared and done! That happens also here in our creative attic, so we love to join this party! Party button is on my sidelist, so you can visit easily and join the party every Thursday.
I love words and playing – playing with words – even better! There is ‘Silent Sunday’ but do you think I could be silent? so I thought ‘Sunday Special’ sounds fun, too! This is my Sunday Special. I had left this tuff on the floor at night and in the morning when Teje went to wash her eyes, she was looking curiously what’s that on the floor … it is specially beautiful tuff and she kept it. By the way I’m full of those now. I’m brushing my fur every day and I have collect already one paper bag full of my tuffs! I should learn to use vacuum cleaner – I’m told!
This special Bird box is from Emma who send us her amazing jewellery (we won it from her give away). Unforgivably we forgot to show this most sweet box. Thank you again Emma for this most beautiful jewellery! Visit Emma in her lovely blog ‘SILVER PEBBLE’! You can see my favourite jewellery better HERE. There was really funny coincidence with this jewellery. I visited Lucy at ‘ATTTIC24’ and she was telling a sweet story how much she wanted to win this same jewellery! Go to read her post because her story had really happy end – for her and Emma!
What! Did I hear someone said something about Desserts?!!! Sorry now I have to run! I won’t miss my dessert!!!
Thanks for visiting me today and being so wonderful friends! I appreciate how sweet you were when my foot was hurting! I send you huge hugs and kismet kisses!!!
