Making a wreath

 
 
I made a wreath this afternoon. Now there is this nice smell everywhere in our home.
I also found a use for the piece of fabric with my bird design.
Have a cozy weekend!

Tina magazine

 
 
A while ago the press team of the women's magazine "Tina" contacted me to send them 3 of my leaf stamps. Today the magazine was in my mailbox! I must say I really like what they did with my stamps!

wildlife

 
Just this moment it started to snow for the first time of the year,
but really only a little bit, let's see how it develops :)
Inspired of a vintage fabric I have, I made these prints of wild animals.

Did it snow already where you are?
I'm busy keeping the house warm with our 2 wood stoves ;)
Ps.: One of my dreams will come true soon, so I'm in anticipation for a while now - more about it later!
Stay warm, where ever you are!

Paper star tutorial postcard


 
 1. Maybe you remember my paper star tutorial.
I thought it would be nice to get them printed as postcards.
I think I will makes some for our windows this year again :)

2. I never had luck with ebay, but this time (I still nearly can't believe it) I was lucky enough to win the auction of these Brause & Co linoleum carving tools! I am so happy, because in my opinion they are the best to carve! Brause & Co was a company in Germany that started in 1895 to produce calligraphy pens and stuff like that. They are not existing in that form anymore. Maybe you understand now why I am so happy :) I also love their logo with the rooster.

 3. Only because it is matching well with the colors in this post: Cones I collected for  the woodstove.

Cones and other nice things

 
 
Weather is really misty and cold lately. Sometimes I can spot the circle of the sun behind the grey veil of clouds which looks like the moon then. I made another illustration suitable to this time of the year and I celebrate my guilty pleasure - browsing magazines.

Thank you for sharing your opinions with me!
I think a new little series is developing.
Friday already again! Have a good one!

Rose hips


Being surrounded by so many rose hips here, I had to make an illustration!
Which one do you prefer?
The one with the grey or the one with the green leaves?

leaves round dance

 Not much time at the moment, but I wanted to show you these patterns I made out of leaves that I've found on my walks. I tried out different color schemes. Fabric test pieces are on their way :)
I'm looking forward to that!

curtains + new doily rug star

 
 
 
Late night sewing.
Finally I found a use for this pretty floral fabric.
Makes the living room a lot more cozier.

The white doily rug is finished!

There is an album called "curtains" of John Frusciante.
Do you know him? I always loved his solo music.
