Nursery additions

I was planning on making 2 boxes using "In Stitches" pattern. But the interfacing I was using is so stiff that I couldn't follow the instructions. So I ended up with the box half done and no clear way on how to finish it. Then I discover a very nice tutorial (JCarolinecreative) where it constructs the box attaching the bottom in the lining with glue. That was the solution. And here is the final result:

For the next one I decided to try something different. This time I made a bucket following the instructions from Vintage RicRac:

Happy New Year

Christmas holidays have been very special this year with the new addition to the family, although he was still too young (just 5 months) to understand what was going on around him.
As usual somewhat stressful with all the Xmas shopping, family visits, ...
But we had a good start of the year and I sensed it is going to be a good one.
I have a huge list of things I want to sew. And one of my new year resolutions is to craft more often. Will try.

Handmade Christmas gift

Today I am very busy finishing some Christmas gifts before flying tomorrow to spend the holidays with the family. A tshirt for my 4 month old cutie and a stuffed monster for my niece. No more time for anything else. Pictures to come.

Some old projects like these fun tshirts I did for my niece and nephew just before the delivery.

Good news

This time my blog break had a good reason. At the beginning of August I had a little gorgeous baby and taking care of him is taking all my time. But I love it.

I knew I was not going to be able to keep the promise of writing something every week or so, but 5 months of silence ... I have no excuse, really. Oh, well. Let's give it another try, shouldn't we?
Here is one of the first sewing projects I did for the apartment.

At the end of the living room there is some part of the ceiling with windows. We looked around but the prices we were asked to get some blinds fitted were ridiculously high. So after several technical discusions between my husband and me and some tips from the parents, we decided to make our own. The result is not bad, is it?

Mail orders

I just got two wonderful packages this weekend. One consists on 2 pieces of fabrics made by Cheeky Beaks that I wanted to buy for a long time

I also bought 2 prints from The Black Apple that I love. The plan is to use them on the room for the baby I'm expecting. Pics to come.
