Two half done and one done!

Hello my dear friends, I hope you all are fine and waiting for the weekend to sew!

After the year changed I try to avoid to make the program with my sewing just because after I am going to be stressed. So I decided to take each day as it comes without stress and pressure!

So, because I try to take the days as they comes, I find myself with three different works on my sewing table, I hope my year is not going to be chaos and in the end of this year my table will be full off unfinished works!

After having a look at my fabrics I saw bags of scraps…again! ( I thought I didn’t have any more). I had to do something. Without knowing exactly what it is going to be I chose the scrap bag with blue and started to sew, I haven’t finished yet and that’s why I am not showing your everything just few pictures to have a taste..


Now I start to figure out what to do with these blocks, I think…


and I found out that it is lovely to sew the scarps


and just to get lost with those blocks…

By the way I wanted to tell you also about last weekend. Our teens participated in workshop about wearing technology and I showed how to make a backstitch, so on Sunday they were sewing lights Led  and doing embroidery with flashing lights!


They had special threads..


Now back to my scraps! The second work, which is also from small pieces of fabrics is this tree. I tried applique and then I made embroidery too. Making stitching is so relaxing and you can take your work everywhere!DSC_0430

I think it is going to be a pillow. One friend of mine told me I should put it in frame.

These were my two unfinished works till now and to the end I show you the book cover I made to my daughter for her diary. This one I finished and my daughter loved the bees I made from felt.


Before I leave, I want to show one picture from one morning, when I woke up there were so much moisture in the air and it looked so magic.


Take care and happy weekend!  Anneli




My Dolls

Happy New Year!

New Year, new things! I wish health, happiness, love and creativity for everyone!

During the Christmastime the last moment Christmas present idea was the dolls. I had ordered Helen Phillips Modern vintage gifts book and it arrived few days before the Christmas. It is lovely book and when I saw the dolls I wanted to make to my daughters handmade presents. I loved to make those and I am sure I am going to make more. It was funny after long days during the dark nights to make these ‘secret’ presents so no-one to have an idea what was going on. So one day before the Christmas I had hide the dolls into a box ( I hadn’t made them presents yet) the youngest girl came to me and said: Mum why didn’t you tell us that you have made those beautiful dolls!!

Here are few pictures about them:

I put the pins with the first letter from my daughters names to their dresses.

To the Christmas tree I made few hearts from the same book!


Have a nice day! x Anneli
