1  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / books and building blocks on: June 28, 2013 07:51:59 AM
A graduation gift for my very sweet and clever niece:
The backside:
And a close-up:

The top is hand-sewn, and it is machine-quilted. I hope you like it.
2  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Granny blancket on: February 11, 2012 06:16:10 AM


Here is my granny blanket, made of scrap yarn. I started years ago, found out I hadn't scraps enough - and even if it is cheating, I bought some extra yarn  Embarrassed - and finally finished it. My daughter liked it very much, so I gave it to her as a Christmass present.
3  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Portrait of an old couple on: April 04, 2010 07:26:09 AM

Here is a picture I made some time ago. I call it: "Grandma and Grandpa at the photographer"  Grin . The heads are made of nylon stockings, stuffed with synthetic quilting cotton.
4  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Table cloth on: April 04, 2010 07:04:18 AM

Here is a cloth I made for my coffee-table. Then I can dream of summer and roses...
5  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / A deer in the kitcheen on: March 02, 2010 06:13:21 AM

Here are the curtain for my kitchen-window. I made it in filet-chrocheting. It might be a little old-fashioned, but I love it, both making it, and the sight of it from the parking-place a dark winter-evning.

8.5.2010: Maria Merlino have charted the pattern and uploaded it for everyone to use: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=346201.msg4029771#msg4029771

I would love to see, if anybody else made the pattern!
6  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Pillow of wisdom on: February 23, 2010 07:59:46 AM

I love to find old handcrafted stuff at fleamarkets and secondhand shops. But how to use them in a modern home with no bell wires or table runners?
I made this pillow of an needlepointed bell wire, the back of a shirt and some vintage fabric, my sister gave me.
When resting my head on it, I hope the wisdom from the bell wire seeps into me  Grin. It is in Danish, and says: teach yourself, while you live, to love, to forget and forgive
