New patterns

I have listed some awesome new patterns in the shop.
The first series are from One Red Robin and my favourite one is (of course) mama and baby matryoshka, soo cute!

The second series are from Make It Perfect. Lovely clothing patterns. I am absolutely in love with the Versatile Wrap skirt! Makes me longing for warm and sunny days even more......


I did not expect so many comments on the ribbon give-away, a big thank you to you all.
I used the random number generator again to pick the winner: number 3, Lieve Lyntje. Congratulations, hope you will have fun creating something nice with the ribbons!

And, more give-aways to come! I have a little plan, more about that later....

Ribbons, ribbons, ribbons

I promised this already last week, but with the school holiday, there was not much time for blogging. Another give-away and this time I am giving away some nice ribbons (see the picture). If you are interested, please leave me a message before or on coming Thursday (the 25th) and I will draw a winner on Friday.

It is Carnaval in Oeteldonk (the name of my city in times of carnaval), time to dress up and have fun. For the boys, I made a superhero costume. With a silver cape and of course their initials on their chest (made with iron-on velours). A very last minute project, done in less than two hours (the base is a christmas pyjama from H&M).

The winners of the iron-on velours are Michaja of La vie est belle a salon and MijMij. I will add a a piece of the latest new colour orange as well (later tonight available in the shop). Happy crafting ladies!
And for the ones that did not win, don't be sad! There will be another give-away later this week.....

Making Space

Every once in a while, it is time to make some space. For new things to come, for old things to go or if you just cannot walk without stumbling over stuff. Well, the last example is the case and I tried to do something about it. Result: A lot of little and bigger bits of iron-on velours. And why not giving them to you.... So, if you are interested, please leave a message before coming Friday (the 12th). I will give away two sets of scraps.

Last weekend, we spent in Paris.
We arrived on Friday and it almost felt like spring!
We really enjoyed being there without the kids (they spent the weekend at my parents), visiting nice shops (for example Home Autour du Monde), eat good food (and drink a wine) and of course visiting the Eiffeltower.
There was also a trade show dedicated to textiles that I visited (the main reason to go to Paris) and I found some wonderful fabrics/new brands for the shop.
