i find myself starting too many posts with “sorry I havent posted in a while” and it annoys me. but yes, I am sorry…. Its been crazy around here, and not necessarily a good crazy….

I have promised a bit more than I can chew in the sewing world, have been offered a job (the real kind, not the “run your own business while you raise your children kind… dont stone me, this IS a real job…) and I have been busy with the kids….

So first… I joined an I spy fabric swap!!! I am super excited, and have already had comments on a previous posts with people hoping that these will be included in my set… so YES, yes they will!!!! so far I have finished cutting 20 airplane squares, 20 fish squares, 20 dumptruck etc squares and 20 nations dolls squares… yes’ I am behind, but Friday my kids are going to their grandparents and I will have the house to myselfย  so I can cut away….

excuse the mess ๐Ÿ™‚

I was also part of a winter swap, and I made a very sweet bunny-bear… was meant to be a bear, but the ears came out sideways, hence, the bunny-bear…


She is made of an old sweater with Moda MOMO wonderland fabric for the body and ears… and vintage buttons from my MIL.

I was also part of a personal swap. My friend Robin knitted me a pair of fingerless gloves and I made something for her daughter… based on a Skip to My Lou tutorial

the outside

It says Hadassa in Hebrew… another vintage button from my MIL…


I forgot to take a picture of it with everything in place… It holds coloured pencils and a note pad…. she loved it… so do I…. but, I havent had a chance to take picsof my gloves… but I will, cross my heart…

We were in Ein Gedi for the weekend… gorgeous weather (20 Celsius!)… beautiful flowers and wildlife, lots of grass…



wild ibexes, native to the area...

amazing trees…


and beautiful plants..


thats all for now! I am off to sleep! Have a wonderful rest of your week! I promise not to disappear again…
