Evening work

Wow it has been quite a while since I posted something. I have so many things going at the same time and I guess the blog is the very last on my list.

I promise to be better...haha. Yeah, that's what they all say. But I will definitely try.

I crouched this bunny this past week while watching television. I am one of those people who can't just sit and watch the tube, I have to always either crochet or knit.
Sometimes I even make some key chains or play around with Fimo.
So how do you like this little guy? I made it for a friend of mine for her daughters baby shower. I got the idea from Beate. She already made several of these little guys.
I thought they were so cute so I had to buy the book for myself.

And this cute top I finished 2 weeks ago. My daughter likes it and in the summer she can wear it without a shirt underneath. The pattern is from Eva and you can buy the e book at Farbenmix

I'm already working on the next top. So you'll have to come back and see what it looks like when it's done.

Have a wonderful Sunday and I'll see you here again soon

Took me a little longer to get back here again. but here are the fabrics I promised to post.

My friend Nadine from Germany gave me this great Oilily reprint to sell for her.The fabric was made exclusively for her you won't find it anywhere else in the US. It is a very soft corduroy, 100% cotton. The width is about 56 inches.

Just think of all the beautiful things you could make out of this.

I think I'll make a spring coat for Sasha out of the olive colored one.
I would like $ 13.00 per yard, plus shipping. If you should be interested let me know.
As you can see in the pics, I have several yards of each color.

You should also check out Nadine's shop, she has some real neat stuff. I'll help with the translating if need be.

I'm still alive

Hi everybody,

I know it took me a little longer to post again. But, there was so much going on here that I really did not get a chance to sit down and blog.

First there was x-mas and I actually spent that with a toothache. So the day after I had to visit the dentist and guess what. He had to pull it out since I had a big abscess. And on Saturday the 27th my sister called me from Germany and begged me to come and help her with the baby.

She was real quick about getting the ticket for me. Now I had until the 30th to get the house under control and ready to leave for a 2 week visit in Konstanz, Germany.

Yeah, but there was still that darn hole in my mouth where my tooth used to be. And wouldn't you know it!? I was in agony all weekend, thanks to my doctor I at least had some Percocet (is that spelled correctly). But I really don't like taking them because they make me crazy, I always feel like I drank all night and have a real bad hangover.
I don't know how some people take them every day, oh well.

So I had to go back to the dentist on the 29th and the 30th at six thirty in the am.

So on Tuesday (30th) I left JFK Airport, my daughter and my husband behind me for 2 weeks.

The flight was the pits by the way, I had a bruised cheek and the plane was packed. The woman next to me proceeded to get drunk and snored the whole time.
What I would have given for a seat in first class!

We landet in Zuerich, Switzerland at around 11 am and I drove another hour or so to my sisters.

Finally there, I collapsed on the couch and slept for a couple of hours.

The baby is the cutest little boy but he sure cries a lot.

Let me just end this post with saying that I am way to old to be around a newborn.
I enjoyed the time I got to spend with my sister and Arik but I was happy to go back home.

My daughter actually missed me and my husband was happy he did not have to get up at six in the morning anymore. He now appreciates me getting up every morning and getting Sasha ready for school.

I will post more tomorrow, I also have some really nice corduroy fabric I want to sell here in the US.
