Crochet, Stitching, Felt, Beads, Baking and a new HOBBY!!

Thank you all so much for your lovely comments about my Sinterklaas post.
Another is coming next time, as we have 2 more Sinterklaas party's this weekend.


First I wanne show you some other things I'm working on adn finished.

The bolero for Kira.
I really love it, to bad i didn't had enough yarn, so for the arms it's now 3/4.
But it looks so cute on her 

I made the pattern my self.
I like it very much.. wanne do it again another time (then with enough yarn). 
Also wanne try and make Noah a spencer like this. ( which I'm calling for years, and still haven't started on that , as 100 milion other things..hihi)


For Sinterklaas Noah wanted to make a Sinterklaas garland from Hama beads.
We stopped, but this weekend/next week we are going to try and finish it
The two above, we made last year.
Noah made the Pete and Sinterklaas on the second row out of his mind.
It's that awesome?? =)))) ♥ ♥
Kira was trying to made the pink above all by herself again left below, so great to see where she thought would be the plae for the earrings and the eye, and together with Kira I made the gifts..

So I hope more in a next post..


Finally a stitching update of Jingles.
Can you see my nail in the middle above... 
My needle always leaves his marks there .. hihihi  =))))
It was not much yet, but it's getting there.


I'm making another shrug, this time for a colleague, I learned her to crochet again, but she wasn't up for this big project and asked me, I wanne finish it next week, as then I have to get back to work again, and also with her, wanne give it..
But that will be no problem I think.


In my mind I wanted to make a puppet show for so long for the kids.. 
It's a WIP at the moment, but also are the dolls/puppets
Here you can see the start of a Americo fingerpuppet (Horse of Sinterklaas)
It's a pattern from my favorite felt designer HuisVolKleur.


As I'm not showing baking pictures, I'm still doing it.
Here I show you a Ciabatta bread I baked this week.
It was so yummy.
I love it
I made it a few time with baked bacon and sundried tomatoes, that's even more yummy, next time I will take a picture of it

♥ ♥ ♥

Then my new hobby ( omg how much things can someone love to do)
Last week you saw the painted faces of the kids, it's very cheap stuff, and as last year I also had many problems to get it off, this time again.
I got tired of that, so when I wanted to buy the best stuff, and say that it would be send as a package I thought lets do crazy and buy a starter set with more colors.
and this week the sweet mailman brought it to me.. 
( I always smile at him, he always brings me sweet beautifull things =P ) 

The next day kids wanted there face painted
This is what I did, after a hour looking on Pinterest for great idea's
Noah loves football, and the our flag, so I made him a fire football and a flag.
Noah wanted me to use gold so that's in there..
As you can see Kira is a littel FROZEN-girl ( like ALLLL the girls al over the world at the moment) and wanted frozen on her cheek, and not just a easy snowflake , but also the face
For a first try I love it...

The next day, kids wanted again.
Noah something from Sinterklaas.
Kira..... again Frozen... lol =)))
I found some awesome pictures on Pinterest.
Getting better, and love working with different colors.

Then this morning I was still eating 20 minutes till we had to bring the kids to school.
Mommy wil you paint us again?
So put it all away and painted the kids again.
Both wanted something from Sinterklaas.
It did it fast, they liked it very much.

This afternoon I wanted to try a big piece that my neighbor did on her both kids last week, and it looked so awesome.
Kira of course wanted purle and pink.
This is what I did

hihihihi... Kira with her funny face....
Every time I have problems with the eyes, but still such a cute try.

Tomorrow I will aske dthe kids both what they want a whole face painted or this Pete painted..
You will see in a next post.


Then for the Sinterklaas party on Sunday I'm baking a Sinterklaas pie.
I'm setting things ready, tomorrow morning I will start
 It has been a while since I worked with fondant
And trying new pie filling..
But also more in a next post.

As we still are in the AMAZING time of Sinterklaas, it feels kind of bad, but I'm also working on a Christmas piece...... bad bad me.... but it's so beautifull, and I really never thought I would make it.. hihihi, I will show it after Sinterklaas... maybe I will finish it even... That would be great as I still have a 100 milion things I wanne make in just one day...... =(
The problem I think of every crafter....

I wanna thank everyone for visiting my blog and especially everyone who leaves a comment!!
 I love reading them!! 
 ♥ Have a great day ♥
