Sock monkey history

Sock monkey history

This summer I made my first sock monkey from a pack of children’s socks I bought at a market. I used one pink and one yellow for this one. I don’t think I posted about it back then, so here she is in all her cuteness (Smilla the cat above, she wanted in too). I […]

From Mom’s yarn basket

From Mom’s yarn basket

I found a ball of white wool yarn in mom’s knitting basket. I couldn’t resist it. I crocheted another amigurumi teddy bear, my first white one. I really like her blue eyes and black full eye-lashes. What do you think? This one has already moved away from home (to Kiruna!) and will be a baptismal […]

Making tiny gifts

Making tiny gifts

The best and most beautiful things in this world cannot be seen or even heard, but must be felt with the heart. Helen Keller More small creatures today! I have a few kids inside my heart all the time, but they vary as some grow up and others I don’t see any more. These are […]

Adventures in the garden

Adventures in the garden

Photo-shoot in the garden, featuring a small pink creature I made this week in moms sewing room. Mom made a big turquoise picnic blanket and occupied the sewing machine, so I picked up some materials and hand sewed this wee one. She (the little softie) didn’t want to be in any photos, she just wanted […]

It is a great day today. It is the first day of the rest of our lives, and we can do with it anything we want. Change, lay still, move, evolve, have a tea party, give out presents, enjoy the sunshine, write, create, blog… Anything! I’m wrapping a birthday gift for tonight, arranging a going […]

Hello Kitty, Hello Normality

Hello Kitty, Hello Normality

I crocheted this cat after a Hello Kitty picture, and I think she turned out really nice. Hello Kitty is something I’ve been enjoying for a long time, since I was a kid. I think she was born the same year as I was, and she is coming back now as my generation is becoming […]

Two amigurumi friends in one photosetting

I’ve been spending a lot of time at flickr this weekend, sorting my photos in folders, looking at photos in different photo pools and trying to find all the home made stuff that I haven’t blogged about yet! When I’ve finished something creative I try to take good pictures of it, in good light, and […]

Alien I, II and III

Alien I, II and III

I made three white aliens this summer. Alien I, Alien II and Alien III. The other ones are at my flickr account with photos, one has a pink ribbon and the other one a black ribbon so that you can hang them. I’ve sold one and have two left that I will put up in […]

Mullis the little mole

Mullis the little mole

This is Mullis the little mole. I made him a couple of months ago, but then I added brown buttons as his eyes, which made him look blind. I didn’t like him like that. So now that I’ve taken the ordinary buttons off and added “real” glass eyes with black irises instead, I like him […]
