That is true, although I have finished all the projects for some swaps, I am not supposed to show them because they are all secrets!…After setting the doubts aside (Have I made enough? … Are the projects right for this swap?…And so on and so on, I think you know what I mean!...) I really got carried away and had a lot of fun finishing the last stitches, adding some embellishments and looking for the extra goodies to send to my partners. I also sent a little parcel to Robyn (Australia) with Hexagons of Hope, I hope the they will arrive soon.
But I took some pictures and when it is not a secret anymore I will show you what I made, it is a promise.
I got a very nice parcel from Nicolette this week! She surprised me sending some lovely gifts. That made me so happy!
I love the basket with blue fabrics! Look at the little bee, isn’t it sweet? And the fabrics are great, with bee motifs! I’ve got to think of something special to use them!
Thank you so much Nicolette!
One of my favorite magazines came last week! Marie Claire is always so full of wonderful pictures and ideas, I just have to show you some of them:
It is a funny idea for knitters and ideal for my children, a lot of vegetables that they don’t have to eat!
For the “apronists” there are some pretty neat ideas:
I like this one here, it looks so funny and original too! It is on my list now!….
In case you like button wholes, with this project you will have a lot of fun! Linen and red embellishments is a beautiful combination:
Only one more week and February is gone!!!….
Time shows no mercy, it does not matter whether I was able to finish what was on my list or not, March is just around the corner!
During the weekend I’ll get a little project done for the OPAM and I hope my second BOM.
It is Carnival and the parades in Cologne, Mainz and Düsseldorf are taking place on the streets. I don’t live near these cities so I can only see the parades on TV. I am not much of a fan, but a little sneak peak of it is ok! When the kids were younger and they had their parties ( like Mardi Gras) at Kindergarden and schools, I used to sew the clothes for them, they were magicians, clowns, Star Wars, Asterix, it was a nice time!
So I finish this post with the Carnival greetings:
HELAU! (Mainz, Düsseldorf)
I wish you a lovely weekend!
