A new webshop

Today my niece started a new webshop, i am so proud of her.
They sell beautiful things for your house and garden . I specially love these wooden self-made boards with quotes and prayers.

I will try to translate this one:
 May the Lord be in front of you to show you the right path, behind you to protect you, below you to rescue you and above you to bless you.

And this one reminds me of my childhood....

I think this was part of a prayer or a song I don't remember exactly.

Don't think they only sell religious stuff, another board has a recipe for applecake, should not that be  nice to hang in your kitchen?

And this bread basket..... isn't this cute?

They have a giveaway on Facebook ( you can find a link on their site)

Two new bags

I sewed these two bags some weeks ago; The first one i knitted with sari Silk ribbon, i bought it here.

I get a lot of compliments on this bag, people want to touch and ask which material i used, the bag is so colorful and so special.  For the moment it's my everyday-handbag.

The second one is a tote, I bought the fabric and the leather for the handles and bottom last year in Orvieto, Italy.
I sewed the leather myself on my Bernina with a special needle. 
To strengthen the handles a sewed a small piece of leather inside. The result is not perfect because the small pieces slip a bit while sewing, although I  have used some glue.
But overall I am very satisfied with this tote.

Pelargonium Panduriforme and some more marketpictures

Two years ago i bought this pelargonium, the first year there was only one flower;. In winter she was in the small veranda , no flowers. The whole summer she was outside, no flower, but she did well, new branches and a lot of new leaves. And look what happens now. She is in the veranda  again and she has flowers ! Not a lot but such beautiful flowers.....

Isn't she lovely and there are more flowers coming....

I did not show you pictures of the Christmas market of my club, here are some.

Do you see the red mouse I am wearing? The ten i made for the market were sold quickly!!

Bastet cowl and some market pictures

First of all I want to send you my best wishes for this New Year. My it bring you good health, happiness and peace.

Weeks before Christmas I was so busy working for the market that I did not show you the things I made for ME.
I crochet the basket cowl with the beautiful  handdyed yarn from Renaissance Dyeing.

The sunday before Christmas I went to a market in a small village nearby. This Christmas market is famous because of the roasted ham they sell.

There also were potatoes boiling in stoves which were used to make the pig food at the farms.

Of course i bought some slices of ham and some potatoes, they were delicious.
