Hello! Today it was a lovely sunny day with cold wind. I arranged my sewing table. I found blocks from unfinished projects and I didn’t know where to store them. Then I got an idea! Few weeks ago I had made a pencil case for our youngest child. She chose the fabric and…

now she loves it because she can see what she has and she finds what she needs very easily

So I thought the vinyl would be perfect to make bags for the blocks:


Now I think I have to make some more, these bags are so practical. Thus I want to avoid plastic because it is so harmful for environment sometimes it is just so handy!

For the stuff I found from my sewing table I found very useful these pouches:


And for my good luck I found my rings under the fabric, they have their own pouch too:


Today I also got  a parcel from Finland. It was a nice surprise -my mother had found pieces of fabric, including Marimekko


…with Finnish chocolate, coffee and a book!


Thank you for visiting and reading my blog! Have a creative time!


Baskets and a pillow

Hello! Time goes by very fast and it is two weeks from my last post!! There are so many things to do with the children but I had a little time for sewing.

I wanted to try to make a basket. I made the first one then another and another one and here it is:

We had a small walk in the olivefield and we found these lovely flowers again. They are one kind of daffodils ( tazetta) and they remind me of Finnish Easter with they smell.
