Today's stitching resulted in a pair of "way to big pants". They where meant to be for I and M to use at school. I only made one pair, which was good since they turned out like 2 sizes to big, as you may see from the photo. I used a new pattern and wanted to try it out. Anyway, we took them with us to park today and gave them to a friend of I and M. She is one year older so they should fit her perfectly.
Here is the birthday gift me and the girls gave to our dear friend Pili on Saturday. The ring from the last post, lego earrings and a purple bead necklace. I also made 3 smaller versions of the fabric house to put the gifts in. They where a bit tricky to finish but they turned out very cute in the end.
This little house is based on a tutorial from Molly Chicken. The original house is smaller though, made of linen fabric and with beautiful embroidery. But since my embroidery skills are close to non existing i decided to use fabric with prints instead. I also made it bigger, the front is 15 cm wide. Now is is all done and ready for the girls to put their little things in.
Finally done! It basically took me all summer to do this. I think the yarn is actually ment for socks but when I saw it in the shop I liked it so much I could not resist. Feels a bit strange to "modell" something made of wool though since it is still like 30 degrees here in Mallorca. But I cant wait for the weather to get a bit cooler so that I get to wrap myself in my new shawl.
It is fig season here on Mallorca now, so my father in law brought me a whole box full of them yesterday. I like, I like!!!! This is the beauty of living here in the Mediterranean. All the fresh fruit and vegetables that you can get, sometimes almost for nothing. And it all tastes soooo nice.
Girls have been at home, sick with fever, for a few days now. Today mommy had to play as well. Me and the dolls where all invited to have a picnic in the living room. The blanket we used is my old baby blanket. The girls loves playing with it.
New felt and button brooch. Unfortunately I will not be able to use it because as I was pinning it on the the red jacket to take a photo, a part of the pin fell off. You know the little part that you use to lock it in. Anyway, at the moment it is decorating a photo frame. Since I glued the green hart on top off the pin we will see if I have the energy to change it.
The lovely Johanna at Skaparstigen has been so kind as to give me this. Thank you ever so much! In return I would like to give this back to her. She is not only an amazing crafter but also a wonderful friend. I know I was suposed to nominate 7 crafting bloggers but since I read, get inspired and admire all of you, here you go, you ALL deserve this one!
