Weihnachten *** Christmas

Ich hoffe Ihr hattet ein Frohes Weihnachtsfest
I hope you had a Merry Christmas with your family and friends,
bei uns war es sehr ruhig und ich habe die Ruhe genossen
we had a quiet Christmas and I enjoyed it
nach dem ganzen Vorweihnachtsstress.
after all the stress getting ready for Christmas

hier ist ein Bild von einem kleinen Besucher, der es sich heute morgen auf unserer Terrasse gemuetlich gemacht hat.

this morning we had a little visitor

nach dem Weihnachtsbasteln hatte ich mal wieder Lust auf andere Farben und so sind einige

after all the christmas crafts I was looking forward to using other colors topflatten entstanden

and I made these potholders

you can find the free pattern at drops design

This keeps little ladies warm in style...

I bought some rather boaring hat and glove sets.
An added chrochet scarf and some embellishments later
they make cute little Sets to keep little ladies warm.

Polar bear bag

I promised one of my co-workers a polar bear bag and finally had time to sew it.

She wanted just a regular bag, but I wanted to make something special.

I hope she likes it.
Ich habe einer Kollegin einen Eisbaerbeutel versprochen, eigentlich wollte sie einen ganz normalen Beutel, aber ich wollte etwas besonderes machen, ich h0ffe er gefaellt ihr.

another christmas present idea

I saw similar Grocery bag organizers at a store

and thought what a great idea

but instead of spending about 10 $ each

I made my own. The Fabric I had in my stash was a perfect fit.

The bag is about 7 in wide and 16 in long (plus a few inches for the hanger)
It has elastic sewn in at top and bottom.
These are easy to make and are very useful. I used to have an entire shelf in my pantry filled up with all kinds of grocery bags, now I have this organizer.
I like that it limits the amount of bags to keep, when it is full the bags go in the recycling bin.
