let's start an epidemic of stress...



...Yes, why not?
An epidemic of Ballerinas and minions, all together...

So this past week was pretty hectic... final of 1st term here... reports ...proud of my two little wilds...
Funny how they came so smart... with a father as a IT guy and a mother that plays with dolls the all day... crazy family!

Continuing doing Ballerinas, adding a order of some Minions, then another banner follows, and finally a mobile with butterflies!!!
That is my work for the next month, PLUS a building stash for a market happening at the end of April...
But hold on, I'm forgetting something on this list... my younger girl is going to turn 8 on the 10 of April... so pretty sure there will be something like 10 party favors for all her friends that are going to get invited for the party.

Am I in panic...? YES!
Will I be able to do it....? DEFINITELY YES!

I discover in the last months that I work better in stress mode, that said, when I see a lot of work to do and so little time I tend to speed up...
This looks like a confession post ;)
So far I did some more Ballerinas and started to cut some Minions...
Pictures please....





Some made... another thousand to make

See you next time

Ballerina improved...




Hello All
I know today is Sunday, but you know when you do crafts and you are the only one doing it (no helpers in the picture), Sundays aren't really a rest time, only if there is a out going and there is no way that you can take your crafts with you!

Today I tried to improve the Ballerina that I've been making for ages...

I always thought that she should have a neck, after all that is what I hear my girls ballet teacher saying, head up, show up your neck!

I also made the all doll in one part, not like the original design with arms and legs to sew later.
I must say I'm very happy with the alterations...

So that said, I made some alterations on the old design, gently given by Erica Catarina from the Ei Menina! blog.

What do you think...





Till next time.

Yes!!!!



Two posts in one day, what a glory!!!

The banner is all up

I'm very happy and proud of the job that I made...
Has I said here many times, working with fabric is not the same thing as working with felt...
There were a lot of challenges, and all ended well...

Till nex time (not today ;) )

Mondays are not so bad!!!



Hello Monday
This week is going to be short there is no Friday... well technically there is Friday on the calendar, but it is holiday here, Humans Rights Day.
So we are waiting impatiently for this weekend of 3 days....



N finish her work with felt yesterday...

I think for a first time beginner it is not bad, not bad at all.
She cuts very well, I do think I'm going to start to use her for my goodies, with a percentage for her well deserved work.
I've already told her that, and she can't wait to start...


Then I made a last minute gift for a teacher that is going away today...

It is a notebook with a removable cover.
I think she will like it!



And then we did a cute wrapping

All written by A's hand.... it is very cute!

Till next time

Fabric Banner and teaching


Happy Saturday everyone!

Doing the fabric banner, still....




It hasn't been easy... working with felt is different from working with fabric, different reactions is size and in look...
So far the recipient is happy with what she sees....


Then this morning N decided, after she saw me selling some tooth pillows, to lear how to work with felt ;)


So here she is



cutting and sewing in a very relaxing way....



Wait until I give her the real deal.... ha ha ha.

This was also a trial to see until what point can I start to make some mini kits for little girls to do their own flowers... So far it is just an idea....

Enjoy the rest of your weekend

Till next time
