She's turning 16 next month and already created her own craftster account just in case a swap comes up that she can't resist joining. Cheesy

Is she frankiebean?

Ummm... Audania1, I thought being a crafter is equal to hoarding???  Grin Grin Grin

Being a crafter means hoarding but also being a teacher means hoarding. Me? Both! Crafter and teacher. Means massive hoarding overload! Poor hubby - I make him get rid of his stuff to make room for mine on a regular basis. He's so happy about this swap (maybe even more than me).
33  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Little dress for a little girl on: April 08, 2014 11:18:51 PM
I'm so in love with the pattern for this dress! It's so simple and quick to make but makes a great garment.

I made this one for Emma when we went to a baby concert by the Cologne Philharmonic Society

34  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Pear Pants on: April 08, 2014 11:10:06 PM
Ok, pears are probably not typically spring but I wanted to make Emma some romper pants in brown corduroy and the pear fabric just matches perfectly



I added a crochet pear to jazz the pants up a little

No peeps? Really? I wonder what people explode in microwaves for fun in Germany if they don't have peeps.

Don't worry! We have Dickmann's which are chocolate covered marshmallows. I've heard of Chemistry teachers who use them for experiments in classroom Cheesy

Poor Georgie!

Emma's asleep so time to post some pictures Smiley

First of all Wuudy and what he brought with him

There are Wuudy and his photobook of course, then there is a book of ghost stories from Ellicott City, some crab related souvenirs like a plushie, a key chain and crab-shaped chocolate with Old Bay (which unfortunately seems to have melted during the journey), stickers I can use in classroom, Peeps (which I hadn't even heard of before), pocket doll making kit and some yummy treats.

Emma helped unwrapping everything. First thing she grabbed was chocolate Smiley


Look what she found next ... especially for her

Isn't that an adorable hoopla? It must have taken ages!

There was also a book for Emma
I read it to her immediately and she loved the rhymes and the animals.

Thank you so much for everything, Averia! Wuudy obviously had a great time with you! He misses you and says hi!

Wuudy's back home! Emma welcomed him first of course Smiley


I'll upload more pictures as soon as Emma is asleep tonight!

3/0/0


My name is Eva and Im from Germany. Im mum to a 10-month old baby girl, Emma, who turns 1 in June. In my free time I really enjoy sewing, stencilling and felting. At the moment I rather stick to sewing though. My mum gifted me a serger two years ago so Im trying my hand at sewing clothing, especially baby clothing. I like natural and bright colours (lavender, plum, cornflower blue, steel blue, fern green, sea green, bronze, brown, copper, saffron, amber, sunglow, tangerine, amaranth, cerise) and natural materials like wool or wood. Ever since I spent some time in Stockholm as aupair I have had a thing for Sweden and anything Swedish. Im allergic to cat hair!!!!

I'm still waiting for Wuudy to arrive back home. He's been travelling for more than 2 weeks now - he must be tired and hungry Cheesy
