July is here, anniversaries in the family

July is a month with few anniversary we have in the family – as title alreasy is stating. A present to be is work in progress. Below just a part of it. It is going to be a set of summer table napkins. Using an idea from Purl Bee, this is the first try. More to come to complete the set till 17th of July.

 

I like the food-summer printing theme in combination with the yellow linen. I have another idea, let’s see how all will come out.

Spring is on the way!

After a long, dark and sad winter first shy sunshine is warmly caressing Prague. My inspiration is back and my mind full of ideas that stay just to get alive in nice things. Unfortunately I miss the time I would like to spend on the crafting zone of my flat.

Lately I started to crochet. I already did few granny squares which will end up in a soft and tiny baby girl blanket. Project WIP.

Variation of white, light pink, dark pink, light purple, gray. I love the way they look aligned but still some more work to do around this project.

I’m planning to finish this by end of March and really looking forward to see the final picture of it.

Since I haven’t written here, I created few bags as Christmas presents. I forgot to take pictures. They were warmly welcomed by their current owners. I also have done some flowers which need to have the final touch and ready to be used for the upcoming spring!

Enjoy the spring! 🙂

First snow and other things

Today was the first serious snow in Prague and maybe the white of the nature and the Christmas spirit made me think about nice things and one of them was my blog. I haven’t written here for some time. But I have an excuse. We were moving to a new flat and all this packing and unpacking activity consumed all my energy and mood for doing something creative. All my crafting stuff was packed already and just yesterday evening I moved it to a new box I bought specially for this.

Now I want to share with you something I created few weeks ago and I used it already every time when I go shopping. It is a very pretty, happy, colourful shopping bag. It has a medium size and it is very practical when you need to do small shopping in a supermarket where usually I do not like to carry my daily city bags.

So, here it is…

…and others to come as I plan to give few as Christmas present.

Have a peaceful driving in a snowy country :).

Autumn light and playing felt

I discovered lately the fun to play with pure wool and transform it in a consistent material. I was using both wet felting and needle felting, alone or in combination with the other method. These are my first attempts and you can see the shy-childish shape of the pattern. However this makes me happy as looks that there is room for improvement and being on the right direction will drive me to very good and improved results. Yes! I am optimistic as I really liked doing these little things during one weekend.

Now what I need is time, mood and some inspiration to develop my ideas into nice pieces. To be continued.

1. An open semi-bag. At the end I arranged it in a shape of box to keep my cream tubes

 

 

2. A traditional bag made using the same pattern but having a flap. It is still work in progress, I have to add the handles.

 

 

3. A flower made using wet felting and the finishing colours are done by needle felting.

Green – Yellow felt beads necklace

Today I am not going to post any tutorial. I only wanted to share with you my first wet felted beads necklace.

Beads are wet felted, my first try I did yesterday evening and I am pretty satisfied with the result.

The string is silk ribbon.

Next time I will add also some wooden beads.
