Fresh flowers on the kitchentable always gives a great

Fresh tulips

This time the tulips are so pretty!
(and they were real cheep)

They even inspired me to start a new bag.

color a winterday

Evening all. How was your first day of the week?
It's been a dark drizzly day here.
Therefor.......
I desperatly could use some color.
Like these red tulips on my kitchen counter,
i brought home with me from the grocery shop.
red and white tulips on my kitchen counter
I had a day of from work so..
i cut these pretty fabrics in stripes and then
placed myself behind the sewing machine.
Kaffe Fassett fabrics
to sew blocks.
sew blocks

I saw this beautiful quilt here that inspired me.

What's in the box?

in this box

No, it's not my box. It's now our mothers box.

crochet

She's crocheting grannies.

She already has these, enough for a pillow.

so far so much

But maybe she'll make two, one for Corry and one for me!
The next comming weeks she'll have plenty of time.
(hopefully energy too)

Ohoooh a broken ankle

The pillow Janine made me for the swap, cheers up my mother

Yes, our mother broke her ankle. Very inconvennient, especially for her.
But we do everything to help her and cheer her up!
And hopefully she'll be riding her bike again soon.
So until than, what better for her to do than making lovely grannies!

Have a nice sunday,

groetjes Heleen

The third monday of january

by corry
is according to the statistics the most depressing day of the year. They even have a name for today, "blue monday". And although monday is not my favorite day of the week I certainly didn't feel blue today!
No time to feel blue.
You see.. I found these bright ideas in this month country living issue that kept me busy.

SONY DSC

Busy in making plans that is.
This list inspired me to make my own interpretation.


Plan 1. pretty pinboard.
The focal point in my craftsroom are these two boards.
Two Simple straight forward ikea boards.
I think they would be so much prettier in plain white.
pinboard

Plan 2. Storage solution.
Boxes..lots of them!
I keep all my projects in boxes on shelfs.
This one is from AH supermarket

I need more boxes

Plan3. Patchwork throw.
I want to make a bright and colorful simple quilt
These small Kaffe Fassett collection is perfect to start with.
I prefer to use an easy to (machine) sew pattern.

Look at all the perfect made detaills,

Monday

by corry
Thank you so much for your warm and reassuring comments.
Well, I did clean up my craftsroom. Makes me wonder...
how come cleaning up a mess always takes longer then make one?
Then when the space was tidy..  
I took a good look at the colors in the basket and slowly a smile came into my crafting heart. 
The red and white flower roll was just perfect for making a bird.

So here is what I made...

A lovebird with a big heart.

Have a wonderful day,

something to cheer me up

by corry
I think I definitely caught it...the January blues!!
No creative input or output lately. It feels like I'm stuck with two left hands.
Is there a cure, a medicine? ..
Yes, there is!!
Lots of colors and fabric..

fabric rolls

And flowers ofcourse!

tulips on the kitchen table

Maybe an early spring cleaning will help too?
Or at least tidy up my craftsroom!
Enjoy your weekend.
Groeten, Corry
