What the HECK happend?

These crochet needle cases are a custom order…or at least one of them is. Trine send me this beautiful fabric and when I ironed on the “volumenvlies” (couldn’t find the English word for the batting) the glue dots melted through the fabric. You might not be able to see it on the photo but I can asure you that there are plenty of ugly glue dots. I was totally in panic. I have never had that problem with “volumenvlies” before.

I decided to make Trine one more crochet needle case and hoped for the best. Trine was in her right to be angry with me but she was so nice. She didn’t get upset and even send me flowers!!!! Amazing….and she asked me to make her a knitting needle case! It is nice to know that she has faith in me.


I sommers begyndte jeg på dette hækleprojekt…

Vesten er hæklet efter et mønster fra Hendes Verden. Den er hæklet i bomuldsgarn, men som I kan se mangler den at blive kantet med fastmasker. Jeg har forsøgt at færdiggøre den, men motivationen udeblev, da vesten også er for lille til mig (og nej hækleprøver er for tøsedrenge…). Hvis der er nogen ude i blogland, der har lyst til at lave den færdig og selvfølgelig beholde vesten, så send mig en linie. Alternativet er, at vesten bliver smidt i skraldespanden. Vestens mål er: 45 cm (målt fra side til side) og 46 cm lang.

Crochet doll

This doll I made for a little girl (not my niece this time). I think she turned out nice. I didn’t have a pattern but just crocheted along hoping for the best.

The doll hasn’t got a name yet but I am sure that it will match her personality!

The doll brought a spring feeling into our house with her bright colours but now she is on her way to Copenhagen and I have to “settle” with the gentle spring feeling from my paper lanterns. Well I am not “settling” with anything because I love my paper lanterns that Karen Klarbæk sent me just before Christmas.

Tilda’s Christmas





 These are just the first of many Tilda figurines that will be leaving my craft studio over the next few weeks/months.

A while ago I found this pattern with the half eaten gingerbread man but haven’t gotten around to making it.  Today I did! You can find the pattern here: www.elsiemarley.com

The gingerbread man and the three hearts are on their way to Scotland to a dear friend of mine, Jane Weaton. I know that she will find the gingerbread man funny because Scots have great humour.

This is another crochet needlebook I have made from my own design.

I have made Wenche (www.tusindfryd-blog.blogspot.com) a crochet needlebook. She wanted to pay for the needlebook but I asked her if we could make a trade… I needed some material to make a Waldorf doll. Wenche is such a great blogger but even a greater person. She send me these extra lovely things:

Thank you Wenche.
