Sewing for a change

Sewing is quite nice but nerve wracking. I got my own sewing machine as a child and sewed at that time now and then. But since time has gone by and my sewing skills are at a beginners level... I loose my temper when I make the same mistakes over and over. Well anyhow, after trying a while this is what I managed to make; 

Some keychains

and some babushka pincushions

You'll find these on my etsy. 

Shame I didn't take a pic of the basket I crocheted of one of these. I already took the light blue basket to our summer cottage. But I might make more of them. And I think I'll crochet some slippers to wear at the cottage since the floor always makes my feet cold.

Something new from something old

Happy mothersday to all mums!
We celebrated mothersday with our mum, traditionally with presents, flowers and new for this year; selfmade mud cake. At the end of the day we went trough some of her old textiles and I made some findings. I am inspired to make something new of theese darlings.

I also found an old friend; Mandolina
