With a little help for my friend

27 Okt

you could lighten up there family life.

This woman rocks. I can tell you. Even if i´ve just known here since some month in the big blogging world all i can say about her is:

Jamie is big hearted, funny, talented and very creative.

She and her family have had  some  hard month behind them and life isn´t that easy  in these days, too. If you are interested. Read her story.

Darling Jamie is running a Silent Auction until Friday and this is what you can get:

So go over to her blog and do a bid if you love and like Polaroid, Buttons and Vintage wooden thread spools.


She also offers custom embroidery  like this woodgrain tree trunk:

Was dein Herz dir sagt…..

Heute ist der Tag, der neues mit sich bringt. Geboren in eine handwerkliche Familie, dümpelte meine Kreativität meist so vor sich hin. Inspiriert durch meine eigenen Ideen, andere kreative Menschen bin ich beflügelt für mein Nähprojekt.

Es soll vorbei sein mit kiloweise Stoffansammlungen und halbfertigen Projekten, Wollknäulen und angefangenen Socken, Papierfetzen und brachliegenden Schöpfrahmen, vorgenommenen Projekten und angefangenen Kursen.

Hier wird es ums nähen vertiefen, Fußwärmer, Papier- und andere neue Projekte gehen.

Inspiration und Tausch ist immer willkommen

What your heart says….

This is the day which rise with new ideas and projects. I was born into a family with crafty roots, but myself creativity was mostly sleeping like a dragon the last few years. But now my longings come through. I hope they will spread out. There are tons of ideas and inspiration through other crafty people.

From now on i hope there will be stop with half-finished sewings, balls of wool and begun knittings, never started courses and not fulfilled longings.

This blog will be about sewing, foot warmers, paper- and not yet known  projects.

Inspiration and swap always wished and welcome.
