Breakfast for Two

Breakfast for Two

It is not St. Valentine. Today is not our anniversary. It is no one's birthday. It is not one of these days that are special, because so many years ago we kissed for the first time, or we looked at each other and sparked the love. It is not the day of the first love letter received, nor the first surprise.

It is a very ordinary Sunday - one of the not so many Sundays, that happened rarely - when we have nothing else to do, but plan for a light breakfast.

'Le petit pois' shopping bag

'Le petit pois' shopping bag

The green, oh the living green - brings always hope. In the long winter days, there is this craving for fresh green, thirst for new life. I can not wait for my first plants to start showing their tiny noses from the ground. And to satisfy my affection for green, I look for inspiring projects.

A Gift of Love

A Gift of Love

... to my sweet, sweet darling Valentine(s) ♥ ♥ ♥

"She cast her fragrance and her radiance over me. I ought never to have run away from her... I ought to have guessed all the affection that lay behind her poor little stratagems. Flowers are so inconsistent! But I was too young to know how to love her..."

Antoine de Saint-Exupéry

Minki's Pincushions

Minki's Pincushions

These pincushions are part of Minki's collection of amazing artistic creations. You can visit her place and sink into the delicate designs and perfect makes she has. She is such an inspiration! I have been following Minki for years now, and for the first time dare to try one of her designs - the pincushions. The pattern could be found in Sewing Illustrations.

Computer case "Winnie-the-Pooh"

Computer case "Winnie-the-Pooh"

This case is a gift for my beautiful and loving daughter, who still has a heart of a child and loves everything colourful, adventures and Disney related. She has her moments of favouriting some Disney characters, but the stories of Winnie the Pooh are a classic and very precious to her. When she bought her first laptop herself, she wanted to wait for our vacation to DisneyWorld (yay, soon to be... in March) and buy a case there. I decided to surprise her and make something unique, that she would love. It was meant to be a Christmas present, but unfortunately, wasn't finished in time.

Here it is, a month later, her new and custom sewn, hand-quilted and Pooh and Piglet appliquéd computer case for her to enjoy:

Wine Gift Bag

Wine Gift Bag
It is almost Christmas - one full day before the bright and happy celebration. We exchange presents, delights, hugs and wine. The meal is always better with a glass of wine and we all have our weird and not so weird preferences when it comes to wine. Wine making is an art. And, believe me, the process of making good wine is a labyrinth - it is neve...

A Letter to Santa

A Letter to Santa
Every year, at the beginning of December, my beautiful girls wish for something for Christmas. Actually, they make plans through the whole year, and the list changes every other week, but this is the time when they have to make up their minds, sit down with a pen and paper and write their wish. They always make it in a card form, so they could draw...

The Haori Old Gold Collection

The Haori Old Gold Collection
With this post I will put the exclamation mark to my Haori "Old Gold" Collection experience. It has been a wonderful journey to experience the fabric for the first time. The Mon étui post was the first to make from this fabric collection and was something I really needed for my signature and for my soon-to-be trips. I will be able to organize my no...

Fabric Box Tutorial

Fabric Box Tutorial
I thought it would be fair to make one more box and show you in pictures how to make it with me. It took me about three hours in total and that doesn't include the little hand-stitching around the border at the top (visible on the blue lining on the bottom box). Materials needed: 1. two pieces of fabric size: 45 cm x 13 cm 2. heavy fusible interfac...

Mon étui

Mon étui
It is ready, my needle-case for embroidery. It took a while, until I figure how to fit the pieces together and where would be the best place for all the elements I need. With it, I could carry all I need for my little embroidery projects. The fabric, I used, is the Haori fabric, I posted earlier in my blog. It is absolutely amazing to work with it....

Mon étui in progress

Mon étui in progress

Oh, lovely autumn, so inspiring and beautiful! And I am so in love with the Haori fabric! It was exactly what I was looking for my special "Mon étui" project. Muted, earthy colours, very course weave, that gives a characteristic texture to the fabric. Differently coloured fibres, interestingly weaved into the solid colour make the thread choices a challenge that results in a telling-a-story kind of projects - just the ones I love. ♥ Finally, I narrowed down my choices to these colours:
