I'm not wearing to work a lot, I work with children and feel a bit overdressed when I do wear it to school!
But I still think it is pretty  Smiley
1434  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / Re: GALLERY: Sew Something Summery Swap! on: July 11, 2012 02:05:35 PM
Thanks ladies for all your nice comments on the cushion covers! I like them too, but the cutting of all those circles, well... let's not talk about that, shall we!?

Today a HUGE box arrived, full of Sharalee-heavenly-goodies!!! Really, it must have taken lots of space in the plain! Hahaha, my mouth fell open! Had to sit down first.

ARE YOU READY??? I CAN'T HEAR YOU?!! ARE YOU READY?!!! So, I warned you all, the gallery is about to explode!

First, a pic of all Sharalee sent us, yes us:

It is all nicely wrapped, see? There's also a enormous roll of freezer paper in the picture. We agreed to send something crafty from our own country and freezer paper doesn't exist here, so I asked for it. Little did I know that she'd be sending for about the rest of my life! Hahaha!

Then I had to open this package  first:

OHHHHH!!!! How pretty is that!!! It has different pockets with hidden cards, notes, phrases, drawings. I'm in awe! LOVE IT!

Then these cute butterflies she crocheted and two FQ's fabric: with spools (AAWW< love) and coordinating blue fabric.

Next Shari used lovely fabric and sewed me (us) a huge (it's beginning to look like a theme) beachbag:

NO, not done!!!! Hold your horses, here we go:

A crocheted plastic bags-bag! How cool is that! Shari gave all the hints about this bag! It is soft, firm and stretchy and mainly brown with spots of blue and red! I am a big bag-lover but this is so unique! LOVE, LOVE it!!!!!

No, no, no, not done! There is MORE!

Lots of goodies for my boys, like skipping-ropes, puzzles, lightening sticks and more! Shari also made two little, very cute robots! They took them to bed with them, hahaha!

WE WANT MORE, yes I can hear you! There is more!

Shari sewed an adorable sun hat! Her first! Look! Hahaha, ignore my silly face, taking pictures of yourself in the bathroom mirror while holding a camera and the cutest-cool-bag ever isn't that simple  Wink ! Offering my very cool image (hahaha) for the good, showing how I will look when the weather will be Summery!

So, yes, I'm done now! THANKS Shari! Too bad I was too busy to make you more small extras. We just need to swap again in a future LHH-Susan Swap!!!

I'm exhausted, will go to sleep now! "See" you tomorrow!
1435  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Re: Fresh Apple and Cinnamon Water on: July 11, 2012 09:02:17 AM
Oh Sweets it is delicious! I tried this, after I bought me some cinnamon sticks, and left it for a night in the fridge. My apples turned a bit brown, but the taste was yummy!

So apart from my apples looking less appealing, this is great!

Thanks so much for sharing!  Cheesy

Wohooo, my lovely partner sharalee received my package!!! Unfortunately she probably has had too much sun and isn't feeling very well  Cry . She asked me to post pictures and who am I to turn down that request  Wink
She pm'ed me that she loves it all  Grin

Sharalee loved to receive a cushion cover for two chairs she has. I went through her Pinterest, interests and favourite colours and went with a bright flower theme! So here I present to you, a flower cushion cover:

For anyone who's interested, a close up of the flowers:

The flowers are obviously made of felt circles. The idea isn't mine, but I stole borrowed it from Craftaholics. I added one red heart.

Here's the other cover I made, also with flowers but different:

And again a close up for those who are interested:

This one is made up by me, inspired by well by several covers I saw on the internet. I added two little hearts as sort of butterflies.

And we agreed to send a little extra. Something from our country... I don't have any idea what we sell here that isn't available in the States, really! So I decided to go with some Dutch fabric.
I whipped up a morsbag:

Added a piece of that cute fabric and another piece of Dutch fabric (recognize it, Leslie?).
Just because it is such cuuuutteee blue fabric:

Shari I hope you will feel better soon! You were such a blast to craft for! Thanks for being my partner  Kiss

That is an awesome package you sent spidermom!!

Love the print of the cute wristlet and the "swim wear pouch" - so much better than an ordinary plastic bag.
The embroidery on the tote is breathtaking!! So beautiful!! Satin stitched AND french knots.... few, you are a very patient woman! Wish I could embroider like that  Smiley
Great spoiling too!

It makes me want to go on holiday... two weeks and then we will leave... Today is a windy, cloudy, rainy day... typical Dutch summer weather  Wink
