Fick syn på vårens första tussilago idag. Nu behövs bara mer sol och värme så slår den ut :)

Saw this springs first coltsfoot. Now needs only more sun and warm weather so they open up :)

Hurraaa..min beställning från Novita kom. Mina garn. Den vita är till väskan, och av Tango garnet är jag inte helt säker på vad jag ska laga av den. Eller..jag har en plan..behöver något till morsdagen till mamma, så vi får se ;) Och så håller jag på att sticka en scarf igen, nu en i pink :) order from Novita came. My yarns. The white for my bag, and the Tango yarn I'm not yet sure what to do with. Or..I do have a plan..need to make something for mothersday for mum so let's see ;) And then I'm knitting a scarf again, now a pink one :)

Har varit och hjälpt att måla idag. Bräder, lister och huvan ovanom fläkten.

Have been helping with th painting today. Boards, lists and the bulb over the kitchenventilator.

( Coz' I'm not always sure with the right english words I maybe write wrong..but hope you understand ;) )

I just have to show you this beautiful wall clock we got today. It was left on our stairs, so it was a lovely surprise when we came home. Our neighbours, an old couple, are moving and they knew we like old things so they brought this to us. I fell in love with it right away!! Going to treasure it forever ;) is a few of my spring/summer projects. The outdoor toilet I need to make look a bit nicer and at the stones I ment to plant flowers. Have to see what I come up with.
So lovely sunny and warm springdays keeps me outside, so not much craftings done. But the Sophiebag is soon ready to be felted ;)

Remember the little blue bag I knitted. Did felt it today and when it got out from the washingmachine it was a mess :( Both sides had felt together. Thought now I have to knit a new one, but then tryed to get it open and got it..yeiiii..the bag is now drying. Thought I'll add something on it but don't know what yet.

And another 'stitchbox'. Need to sort it. But it looks the same after a while again. ;) Started to stitch a small picture coz' I need to make a few cards. I like small pics coz' I get them ready :)

Just a quick post before I go to bed.

Was looking for the white yarn ( Novita Huopanen ) in three stores today, but NOOOO!!! They don't have it. Think I have to order it from Novita or I'll never get it. Just when I was in the mood for knitting the white bag, typical.

Got some yarns for a project I have in mind, but not going to start it til I get some of the old ones ready. The green colour is quite nice ;)

Then there on my bedside table is my purple knitting. Going to be a Sophie bag. But I'm not sure about it, think I have the wrong size needles for the yarn. But I'll keep on knitting and see what it will look like when it's ready. Let's hope for the best!! ;) So nighty..I'm tired. A few rows knitting then some sleep.

Today I have been painting again. This time the wainscot on the wall. White. Got all dizzy in my head coz' of the smell. Still lots to do but every day we get some things done ;)

And boy am I angry..was looking for yarn so I can knit the white bag ready..BUT they did'nt have it!!! Was in two shops, but NO!! Need to search for it tomorrow again!

Got the 'bagbug'

The sewing is'nt going good so started knitting again. Got the 'bagbug' and here is what I have been doing the last few days. The blue small bag is going to be for my phone. Just need to be felted in the washingmashine. Not sure what size it will be after that, but hope it'll be ok for the phone..( keep thumbs up ;) ) For the white one I need more yarn. On the purple one I just need to keep on knitting, so going to knit a while before I go to bed,, nighty !!!!

So..the fabric I did dye. Here is a picture of them. On the left is how the fabric looks like 'before' and the right 'after' . Maybe someone think they look a bit dirty, but I was after this used, old look and I think it's quite ok!
Used tea for it ;)
Going to try another time again, but first I have to sew something with these fabrics!
Always fun to try out new things ;)

Last evening I thought I try to dye some fabric. It's now drying so have to wait til tomorrow and see how it looks like. Hope it's going to turn out fine!! Keep fingers crossed!!

Last week I saw my aunt when I was in the craftshop and mentioned to her that I like to sew. She sayd she can give me some of her old curtains and tablecloths to cut pieces from. And who knows what I come up with to sew of them ;) I like the fabrics..yippeeiii...

And when I was visiting my grandma today I mentioned I need some buttons ( know she got lots of them ), and while I was looking for some I like she sayd I can take them all :) Wow..great! (So if she needs some she can now come and ask from ;) ) She's so sweet!! Please notice the old pot they are in.. an old handcreampot..Going to treasure it and continue saving buttons in it like she did for many years!!!

A little knittings been done too..

Tomorrow I continue with the other project coz' I need to sew new legs for it =) (The legs I sewd yesterday did'nt turn out good at all..) Hope I'll get it ready til Easter!

This wallhanging I got ready today. The stitching I did a while ago but today I came up with the idea what to sew so here it is. I like it much. Got the inspiration from my 'forumfriends' over in the UK and around the world ;) The needle and small threadroll is perfect!!

Thought I show you a picture of the wooden toy grandpa made for little E. Think it's so cute ;)

And here is what I bought today. Coz' I'm now inspired of sewing and have'nt got much nice fabrics I needed some new ones. They had lots of lovely fabrics so need to go and shop some more :)

The socks ( or shall I call them slippers) I got ready a few days ago are so comfy and warm. Really like the design I came up with ;)
Been to the library and lend lots of books. Already started to sew something from one of the books( you'll have to wait and see what it's going to be ;) ) and noticed I have'nt got much nice fabrics :( But I use the ones I have and hope it looks neat anyway.

Done some springcleaning and got the Easter decorations up.
Been knitting too but I'm not sure if it's going to turn out the way I was hoping..let's see..
