Good morning! Just on my way to work, did take an extra shift at the kindergarten again. Have'nt had much time for crafting coz' yesterday I did two workshifts and then Little E's sick AGAIN!! The little I have been knitting is on my jaywalkers. Really like them, but now I notice I knit different than the first one so might rip that one up and knit it again. But it sure looks like I can get them ready :)

Have a good day everyone !!

Made some simple knitmarkers last evening.
A while ago when I told mum and dad I would like some kind of box to put flowers in they gave me and old one they had. I painted it white and it turned out just the way I want. It's the smaller one on the photo. Then yesterday morning dad came with a bigger one, yes..I had mentioned something about thet a bigger box would look nice too ;). So now I need to paint it too..Hureeiiii...I love them !! ( not sure what they are is maybe wrong word )
And first pair of handmade earrings :D For ME!! Used green glassbeads. Only bad thing is have'nt got right tools so have to order some.
And the second pair I made for my friend Jenni! She did like them.

Jaywalkers or not ?!

Good morning..
Trying to decide what to do today. No work so that's great.
Thought I would knit ready some of the ufo's I have..and I do have lots of them ;)
Remember the jaywalkers I started a long time ago? Lost the interest in knitting them when I noticed the stripes aint going right. But would like to get them ready coz' I do like the yarn.
Maybe that's one of todays projects :D What are you up to?

Was a rainy day so we stayd inside most of the day. Made a apple-rhubarb pie.
Been playing with E and doing some crafting. In the evening we had sunshine so was out planting flowers.

Made a wallhanging.
Bought the small carrots earlier in the spring and had in plans to do something with them. Was going to throw away the wreath when I sorted out my stuffs, but did save it anyway. And now it was perfect for the decoration. After looking when my blogging friend Kati is going carrot :) I got some ideas and wanted to crochet a little bunny.

So this is what I made. Like it much. The bunny is about 10 cm's from head to toes. Was'nt so easy to crochet so this small project did take a few days. My own desing ;)

Yeiiiii....found the camera. He had left it on my bedside table. So here's some pics of the bag :)
I like this 'old' romantic style and did sew on the roses. Think it looks nice.
After being to doctor again coz' of the foot and later on an x-ray I came home to sew.
Wanted to make another small bag . This one with a zipper on. BUT...can't sew zippers, now I know it!!!! Trying for 5 times and NO, can't get it to look neat, I give up.
So I made a bag without a zipper.
Can't show a photo now coz' the camera is in hubbys bag and he's at work. Just typical :(
Have had my friend over in the evenings yesterday and today. She got inspirated too and did sew a small bag for her mobilephone. Now she started to knit :) Hope she's over soon again, it's fun with company.
Started to crochet and going to try to make a decoration ready, let's see what it's going to be ;)

Have had quite a good day. Been home alone and it's been nice.
Done lots of houseworks but did also sit and relax. Had my coffee with cookies and icecream with coffeetaste..mmmmm

My foot is still feeling sore and it's getting annoying :(

It started with one porcelain doll, then I got another, then another....
I now have 19 dolls. When we moved I did put them up on grandmas loft and there they have now been for about two years. Now when I got my own room I thought it's time to take them all home.
I know they need more space but they have to be like this for now.
I had forgot that they where so many ( two are on other plases) and I did'nt remember how they look like. Have'nt been buying any new ones the last years.
In the evening I did sew a simple bag with the lovely fabric I bought from Ikea yesterday.
Would like to sew more now!

Warm and sunny day.
Was'nt feeling too good in the morning and my foot is'nt any better.
Was at work and did pass out. Quite frightening really. Went to the doctor coz' we started to think I can have an trombosis in my leg. But the doc sayd it's not, and she don't know why my foot turned blue and still is.
Been tired lately and was sleeping on the day. Not feeling ok, but not sure why..
Got the new issue of Drömhem & trädgård, one of my favouritemagazines. Been reading in it and also knitting on a new project I started last evening.
Did clean up this old spinning wheel I got from my aunt some while ago, and I'm now going to have it like a decoration upstairs ;) Not yet sure of the plase, maybe it suits in my craftroom too.

Have been thinking and dreaming about doing my own earrings so today I did order some stuffs for it :)
I hope I get them soon. Also need to buy some other tools for it.
Not yet sure how it is going to go with my crafting, but will see. Something easy I think I can make :D

What a day...

My foot looks like this. Don't know what happend but it started to get blue yesterday and has been feeling sore for a few days. Was not too good to walk on it when I was at work :(

Little E is still sick too. Hubby went with him to the doctor for the third time in a short while. He still has eyeinfection and now earinfection too. Poor little one.

We are all so tired at this now. Feels like E is sick all the time.
I have been so, so tired the last days and trying to take a nap whenever I can.
Got a little knitting done..

Here's some pics of yesterdays presents!

Bunch of wood anemones from Little E and hubby. They had been out on a walk to pick up some for me :)

E had made a picture for me at the cute. Going to buy a frame and put it up on the wall.

Then E did draw a picture here at home. I also got Irinas new cd. What a smart boy...already know what mum :D So..a happy mum here ;)

Got this ready last evening. It's a bit tight for me so not yet sure what to do with it.. Nice anyway.

With Mothersday and mil's birthday coming up this weekend I needed some cards. Been crafting and cutting today. Fun!! Made these 3D cards. Think they look lovely.
On the second pic you can see the layer on the roses.
It was quite a while since I mad any cards, think I need more time :D

Then I did fasten the threads on this lightblue scarf I knitted a while ago. Sometime I wonder why I knit things I don't even need.. Just great! But who knows, it can be perfect next winter.

Spent the last days to find a template I like..trying different ones but noone was quite in my style. Sorry for the mess that's been going on here ;)
Then I thought I'll try and make my own and coz' I'm not that good with computers and things it did take me quite a while but it was worth it :) Sure went many hours to this..
I like the one I made..hureeyy :D So hopefully I'm going to leave it like this for a while

Maybe someone of you are wondering how the fasting went I can tell you it sure was an experiense. But it went fine. Only on one of the days I was feeling really ill and did throw up. I lost some kilos during these five days and it's great. Still have to keep going til I reach my goal.

In april I knitted a capelet. Needels 7 and Boston yarn. Pattern is from the book Stickverk.
Bought the yarn years ago and now when I have been sorting my craft things I noticed I have lots of yarns and decided that I have and try to knit with them and not to buy new ones... Ok..I try ;)

I did also knit two more kids scarfs. Would like to add some cute pictures on them but have'nt found any yet.
This evening the sky was so lovely. Just my colours!!! The photo does'nt show off the colours so well, but I wanted to post it for you anyway :)
