WIP: cowl and christmas decoration


hello, thanks for stopping by! are you busy, maybe very busy?

this cowl i finished a few weeks ago, i only have to sew on the buttons. but suitable ones were hard to find although one of my drawers is packed with a wide range. the glass buttons on the photos i have ordered last week and i think they are beautiful but unfortunately a little too heavy and fragile, so i doubt.

the christmas decorations i have done, now i have to make a nice display with tiny plants and flowers. i found pink divine twine in a drawer when i was looking for buttons for the cowl (see above) and i have made a cover for a mini glass jar in which ginger jam has been. it fits nicely with the other christmas things. i think i’m putting together a package with some of the covers and baskets for my mother, i think/hope she will like the neutrals and pinks. 

also a small doily has come out of my hands​​, i can’t find the pattern anymore, sorry about that! 

 looking forward to your projects, joining these parties on wednesday:

hope to see you another time!

  1. So many beautiful projects! I am so happy to see something made in the white/red twine! I have been lusting after all the wonderful stripey twines for a while now, but here it is so expensive I didn’t want to just buy without knowing what an item hooked in it will look like. It is pretty!

  12. Dat ziet er al gezellig Christmassy uit. Ik hoop dat je je ondertussen al iets beter voelt.
    Hier in Ierland is de versiering nogal traditioneel. Groen, rood en goud. Niet echt mijn ding. ik houd meer van zachtere kleuren. Jouw versiering zijn dan ook een feest voor mijn ogen. 🙂
