I would like to thank you for all the messages you left in my posts and for the encouraging words and compliments (a special hug to Rosanna and Debbie: you guys are simply great!)
I couldn't do any minis in the last 3 nights...because I fell asleep
....hehe...I know It's not an excuse, but I probably needed some rest =^_^=
I went on with my crosstitched bookmark and I have begun a crochet quilted blanket - I bought some soft wool and I will make some squares stitch them together with a nice thread or ribbon and decorate it with some self made flowers (maybe in felt...still don't know...) here below the beginning of it:
Do you know quilling?
The web is full of images from a great creator lately, her name is Yulia Brodskaya and she makes something she calls paper Graphics...which is an extreme, incredibly crafty, artistic form of quilling.
you can chek it here:
I LOVE HER WORKS, so colourful and curly!!!!!
I always liked quilling and i was doing it a lot when I was a child...looking at her works I thought I am going to make my Easter decorations that way so I made some excercice yesterday
Laura is in Love with this quilling thing, she is simply delighted from the paper curls, so I plan to do it with her in the next days...and with my mom!!!!
YES! my family comes to Belgium for the Easter vacation: my mom (she is a crafty lady herself but not really into blogging!), dad and youngest brother!
I am so happy. Alessandro, my brother, is a very crafty guy he made some miniatures for me in the past (I'll have to post a picture once...) and he promised me we will try to make a doll's house while he is here :-)
That's the reason of the title "last updates before Easter"...I won't probably have time to connect in the next days...
I went to the hobby shop yesterday, the one where I buy all my stuff, and I have picked up a couple of things:
three vintage Flemish postcards and three sets for cross stitch:
a mini kit showing a teapot, a little bag with a bird and a new bookmark (the one I am making is destined to my mom)
that's where the part "some surprises for you" comes to the scene:
I am looking for material to make an art journal, a very special one, it will include some written stuff, multimedia decorations, some gadgets,.....(and more) and I am planning to organize a "candy" for it as soon as it is finished. So stay tuned because this will be my present for you.
this is the (for the moment) chosen notebook for the journal:
what can I say...thanks thanks thanks to all of you for making my blog so special to me!
Lots of Love
PS: HAPPY EASTER!!!!!!
