Peter = 1 year !

Peter turned 1 today, unbelievable that it has been a year gone already. I can remember the day he was born like yesterday, I don´t have the feeling that it has been that long. They grow up so fast.
I have him some sandforms and some cupcakes to give to the other children in his daycare group. They really enjoyed celebrating his birthday, the weather was also great, so this is a great day to turn 1.

Finger painting

I received these photos in an email, aren´t they gorgeous? Sometimes it is even hard to the hands. I think this is a great artist who painted them.

Nic 3 at school

Yesterday Nic celebrated his birthday for the first time at school. He really enjoyed going to school with the cake I made him. I put the cake in a basket which I decorated with balloons so it looked very festive.
In the basket was the cake offcourse, some partyhats for all the kids, napkins, and a little toy for all the kids.
As you can see, Nic really enjoyed his 15 minutes of fame.
And yes, all the kids are wearing an uniform, and when the weather is good, they are outside, since they have a philosophy that fresh air is good for kids. It is a so-called ´open air school', even in winter the windows are open.

Nic turned 3

Today Nic turned three! This is him this morning unwrapping his gifts. We will have his birthday party next saturday, so for now, it is just our presents, a trip to the ice cream parlor and a special diner.
Time goes so fast...


I received this very nice pink purse from Ruth (http://miladocreativo.blogspot.com/). The inside is lined with a nice soft pink fabric. And the rose soap really smells nice.

This is what I sent Ruth, a bear (she asked for a bear or bunny) made from a Wee Wonderfuls pattern, some chocolades, a belgian strawberry jam, some ribbon and other small goodies.

Grab bag

I saw the pattern for this bag in a copy of Better Homes and Gardens Creative Collection - Quilts and more. I got as a christmas gift. I found it easy and fun to make. Not hard at all, and it really looks great. I think I will use it as a lunch bag.
While Peter was sleeping and Nic was playing on the V-tech, I found some time to assemble the bag. Niels was working on my jeep. Result = quality time for mum!

How cool is this idea for showcasing small fabric pieces over at the purl bee. They even have a tutorial up, so we can also make some ourselves. I think it is a great idea also for people hat don´t quilt. great idea!


Isn´t this throw just gorgeous. I wants me to start crocheting. I must find someone that can teach me how to make this blocks. They are just wow!
