two small finishes

Hello lovelies, are you enjoying this holiday season?

I must say, the week between Christmas and New Year is almost always a bit of a drag for me :(. I usually imagine myself resting and enjoying these slow days, but in reality I just start feeling unproductive and anxious most of the time. So this year I adjusted my idea of recharging and instead of sitting around forcing myself to relax, I decided to include some just for fun sewing in my days.

And, it worked !!!

I almost forgot how wonderfully freeing it feels to sew with no deadline or commitment in mind :).

I whipped up this drawstring bag to keep my newest knitting project nicely organized, ...

.... and of course I needed a matching itty bitty pouch for my stitch markers, scissors, and needles.

These were not time consuming projects at all and I thoroughly enjoyed sewing them up. Plus, I got to use this super, super fun Essex Linen by Sarah Golden. It's such a perfect fabric for one's project bag, don't you think?

Off I go now, more resting and recharging to be done :)

Wishing you all a happy, peaceful, creative, and most of all joyful 2018 !!!

this and that

Hello, hello everyone!!!

How are things? Have you been busy? Any fun projects you've been working on?

It's been a while since I popped in here, sorry for disappearing on you like that :(. Things have been crazy busy lately, mostly in a good way though so no complaints here.

If you follow me on Instagram you probably know our family has decided to take a giant leap of faith and after 20 years of living in the States we will be moving back to Europe once the kids finish their school year. Eeeeek! I'm so, so very excited. And a bit scared, too. It's going to be a huge change for us all but I've been feeling stuck in a rut for quite some time now and I think we're ready for some serious change :)

And, even though our move is not happening for a few months, I just had to whip up this super adorable passport wallet. I used Amber's fabulous pattern which comes in two sizes. I made a four passport one, but I'm planning on making a six passport wallet as well.

We also got to celebrate this little cutie's 18th birthday!!!

I feel like I just blinked and somehow my first baby is an adult now.  How is that even possible?

And, as if all that wasn't exciting enough, I got to spend a few days this week in Denver recording a Craftsy class. It was super, super exciting, and incredibly stressful too, of course. But I'm very happy I said yes to this opportunity and can't wait to share with you more in the coming weeks.

Well, that's me for now. I have plans for some fun, no deadline sewing this weekend and I can't wait.

Wishing you all a relaxed and creative weekend.
