Sausage and a Peanuts garland with great tits

How is everybody?? :)
Here my little princes is indeed very spoiled with pink. ♥

♥ Finally after 3 years she has a girls room, so fun to watch the kids rooms grow.

Kira's little pet Sausage ( really to funny still ) is being spoiled to. :P
She really is family member nr 5. :O
When she sleeps during the day, Kira brings us to silents, otherwise Sausage will awake =))))
♥ cute girl.
But as it is winter and cold outside (only still no snow) Sausage needed a blanket. brrrr
Also some food ...   yummy =)))
But what do you think about a collar???
 ( thanks Marielle for the tip, don't want Sausage being taing away by the Police, for not wearing a collar)
She got it all. :))))
I asked Kira for the colors for the little blanket, blue and pink :P
( I think she is still thinking if Sausage a boy or a girl.. lol)
Look at her ;P
She is very happy at our home. :))
This afternoon Kira went cycling with us to school and we put Sausage in the doll seat, so she could come with u stoo school
Totally forgot to take a pic  :(( , will do that next time

♥ * ♥

With winter coming for years I had a felted pattern waiting to be maked.
Last September bought the supplies, and now finally started it. :))
Let´s see the beginning ♥

A felted apple with 5 peanuts al made out of felt
Look at how real they look
After a few day´s all 28 peanuts where finished, and attach to the garland. :))
But then, who will eat the peanuts
A cute little great tit..♥
What a funny name in English :))
And she got a brother, and what are they doing ... 
The two are playing in the peanut garland. :))
The pattern say's I need to make 3, but I had the idea of making other birds, I'm working on a robin, but don't know if I will hang that one, because the sweet designer told me that robin's don't play in garland but,  look for there food at the ground.. :)
But for now it's finished and hanging in my back window.
( looking good at the right in the pic, my little craft cabinet with sewing machine)

♥ * ♥

Then a last felt piece, was a b-day gift that I made.
Cute simple and beautifull ♥

Now going to empty my mailbox, finish the robin, and when there is time left do some stitching..
have a great evening, day!!

Still a bit of pink :)

Thank you all for the congratz wishes on Kira's birthday.
She had a awesome time and got very spoiled
Here a little collage of her day

The first pic, is from our very first girls morning.
She loved it so much.
We will do that more often

Last post, I didn't had time to take a pic of the last gift for Kira.
She has a doll-bed, and I made some bedding for it.
 I starting to love Patchwork

 a cute little pillow
 And there she is, in this beautifull bed!!!
It still needs a mattress, and the bed needs to get painted.
Also next week I;m starting on a crochet blanket for it.
In Holland they started the Dutch Crochet Alone 2014. It's a awesome piece, started on the 3th of January, beacause mine will be small I can keep up with it, but more of that next time!!

***** ♥ ♥ ♥ *****

Last year a colleague asked me to make her a special piece for her Godson who was expecting a baby girl.
It's in the style of the baby room
It was the piece with the 250 pieces of ribbon.
Remember that I told you about that????
Here is the end-result!
It's was a big project.. 

Loved making the owl.
( I think it will also be the last time. cutting and binding al those ribbons... =((  )

But my colleague loved it, and so do I ♥

* ♥ *

So tonight I;m doing some felt peanut craft, more of that later.
Have a great evening, night, mornning and afternoon, where ever you live!! 

♥ ~ ♥

My sweet friend Petra, after being addicted to not only cross stitch but also crochet and felting ( I;m innocent ) decided to write on her blog again.
Please all go have a look at her beautifull blog.
She also decided to write in English, so easy to read.
And if you look good you can she the project I'm working on, she is making it too

♥ ♥ ♥ Little Kira just turned 3 years ♥ ♥ ♥

Can you remember that I posted this photo 3 years ago after giving birth to my beautifull little girl
♥Happy Birthday my sweet girl♥
Save in her daddy´s arms for the very first time =))
~ ~ ~
The past three years she has grown so much, made a little collage from some beautifull pictures
♥ * Adorable * ♥

With a birthday you have presents, and again I made them all myself.
She was enjoying me sew-stitch-crochet so much the last weeks ;)))
I really hope I will get such a big smile tomorrow!!

Let's start with the most awesome piece.
The crochet doll
* * * 
I'm so in love with this doll.. Think I will make her again.. hihi
( took it with me to my the nursing home where I work, they really loved it)
It's crochet with hook G 4.0 
It's pretty large

♥ * ♥

Then I made a while back a Hello Kitty stitching piece.
And finally I finsihed it off in too a pillow case
It's perfect.. 
The pillow is 50x50 so also a big piece!!

♥ * ♥

Another stitching piece also got finished
This was a freebie by Vinniey at Cottage Garden Samplings
From the moment I stitched it I know I needed to make a pink pillow out of it.
And lucky as I was, my sweet friend Nia send me 3 pieces of light pink fabric.

I had this plan in my mind for over 2 years now, and finally it's done..
Thank you Vinniey for the cute design and Nia for the wonderfull fabrics ( next post another finish with the fabrics).

♥ * ♥

We had a bit of sunshine this morning.. a bit 
♥ * ♥

As last for this post gifts I had to plan making a total set that Kira could wear when playing in her kitchen.
I had it all in my mind.
Here is the start of the idea
A Apron from my selfmade pattern after looking to 1000 pictures

I love it.. but after it was finish, not totally as I hoped..
And since Kira likes to decide herself how things look like, she can choose the rest.

There will be more kitchen crafts this year!!

♥ * ♥

Then I really have to show you so such a cute sweet gift.
Yesterday the mailwomen  we only have woman here in town who bring the mail so 2014 hihi =))brought a pacakage from France for Kira..

That can only be from two people.. and yes..
Sweet Valérie and her SuperHubby send little Kira a birthday gift.

 She loved it so much..
A Hello Kitty scarf and hairpins

This morning she needed to go too school.

Mommy where is my new scarf I love it so much..
Thank you so much sweeties!!

♥ * ♥

As last I wanne show you the basket I made for Kira's little dog with XL yarn =))))

♥ Pink ♥ Pink ♥ Pink ♥

Anyone getting tired of all the white here on my blog???
Sorry it's my favorite color :P

But this is going to be a very PINK post, so put on you sunglasses. =))))

I've making many big projects the last months, 1 is still not finished and that is Kira's Blanket.
It's almost finish, but not yet
This is a old photo of the blanket, but it's more to show how not girlie Kira's room still was..
She even still had no curtains..
Remember that a few post back, I started with a note NEVER TO SEW CURTAINS again..
Now let me tell you that I bought curtain fabric when Kira was 2 months old, and just last year before Xmas I sewed them..
The reason, I was so afaraid of the big project.. 
And I can tell you this was the first and the LAST time EVER that i will sew curtain..
I have been frogging so much.. 

1 evening of sewing 
... became
2 DAYS of frogging, 
.....became 1 evening of sewing again..
But I did it!!!
 The color on the pic below is the right color off the curtains.. she is loving it so much.. 
And can you imagine the room only is 2 metre by 2,5 metre, so it's looking even smaller now and very PINK..
 but she is loving it!!
And I do too
Here you can see how the blanket is now..
At the right was the blanket already wash so it shrank a bit. so on the left I need to at more to get it in the right size..
So wanne attach in the front 2 or 3 rows more, and at the top also 1 or 2 more.. then I will wash it before giving it a egde..

♥ ♥ ♥

Then after making Noah a memoboard you can see on this post ( scroll down to below)
I made Kira also a board, but never finished it off.

I did that last weekend
Kira is so happy.

Tomorrow DH is going to hang it in her room
Now she can put her favorite photo's/cards in it and all her pins.. 
In the years we lost a few.. 
And still enough room, so this year will make a lot of hairpins

♥ ♥ ♥

Is it pink enough???
Oke got another real pink project finished.
A XL yarn crochet pillow.

I bought the yarn a while back ( got it in blue for Noah too)
And started making a rows
And after a few hours it was done..
This is made on Hook 10. so a very fast job.
I didn't had enough for the back, so sewn fleece to the back
When I put it in her room, It was even she same color as the curtains.. so perfect match
The total pillow is made in 24 hours.. that really awesome for me.. hihi
Kira kept a good eye on me if I did it all good :)))) 
This is the back, it's a pillow case, so I can was it when I want

And Kira loves the back for her cuddles....
Look at the pic below

All three of her sheeps need to sleep like this every night now..
She has 2 more cuddles, a horse and dog.. I found a XL yarn basket I made a while back, there the horse is sleeping in.
And for the dog I;m making a white XL yarn crochet basket.. but that's still a WIP.
More of that next..

Kira really can't wait till her birthday.
I made a awesome crochet doll as a gift, and this afternoon was working on a apron, I also wanne sew 2 pillows.. so I will be busy between school/work/kids/cleaning and a little bit of sleep before Saterday
More colors soon... 

Need to change in my work clothing now.. have a great evening!!

Hello Blogosphere, Family and Friends

A year full of creativity, fun, joy and love.

Let all our dreams come true
And let new things come on our roads

 We gave the kids both one kids-firework sparklers ( a very long one)
They loved it

In The Netherlands it's tradition to bake  Oliebollen and Appelbeignets on the last day of the year.
The google translater calles them fritters..
Oliebollen = it really a kind of dough with raisins
Appelbeignets + it's a piece of apple with sugar and cinnamon and in a different version of te Oliebolllen dough
Both will be fritted!!

Can you understand it??

No ??

Let me show a pic

Left the appelbeignets and right the oliebollen.
There where more, but I gave some away at the neighbors who got the baby-boy just before new year and we already eat a few..

♥In May, DH and I will be 10 year togheter♥

In July,  I'm working 12,5 year for my boss in the nursing home ( In the Netherlands 12,5 and 25 year is a celebration)

( I gave a big surprise party when DH turned 30  2 years ago, he wants to do the same for me, I hate surpises.. lol... but I first need to see it happen.. lol)

Goals for 2014:

NONE    =D

I set 13 goals in 2013, I finished 6
Around June I was tired off it all.

Also the list with all the things I made.. hihihi.. I stopped somewhere around 45 with writing it down, already don't know what i all made.. so a NO-GO for 2014 with that too... =)))
