Spaceboy Glenn

I made spaceboy Glenn this weekend. It is my first try at Hillary Lang´s second pattern book. But I think he turned out OK. I just have to finish some details on his spacesuit, but I will do that this coming week. We had guests over, so no time to sew.

Isn´t she gorgeous? I think this little doll is precious. I saw her lying in a box with other toys on sale in a local children´s boutique.
The lady said she was the last doll. She sold these dolls with a little wooden bed and a lot of little quilts with underneath all of that a small green crocheted pea.
But since his little lady had noo bed, she was tossed in the sale bin...
So I will make her a lovely quilt and I asked my dad to make a nice little bed for her. What do you think?

Back home

We are back home from our ski holiday in Austria. Snowconditions were disappointing, so we spent a lot of time in the swimming pool or as you can see for yourselves in the playground.
But it was a nice holiday, we had a great time going with the kids to Mayrhofen by train, trying to learn Nic how to ski, etc.
Had enough time to do some stitching, so a nice vacation.

Tag quilt

For those of you that read my blog. If you are trowing away old clothes, could you please remove the tags before you do so.
I would like to make a tag uilt, and I started to collect all the tags out of my old clothes and blankets, and other stuff with tags, but I really need a lot before I can make the quilt.
So next time you throw something away, please think of me. TIA


I like to wish you all the best in the New Year. May all your wishes come true.
And I hope you all have a very crafty 2007 with lots of new great ideas.
