The best things in my life …….


are handmade -
like this wonderful angel I got as a gift from May Britt recently.
Miss Angel is watching over my sewing corner every day.

P1060889P1060888- like these gorgeous hand painted buttons I got as a surprise gift from Yvonne
I am in awe for the wonderful miniature details. The star is only 1 5/8" big.

P1060881P1060882It is so nice when I have request sewing from my loved ones - DD2 wanting to give her cousin a toiletry purse like her own, and me having the pleasure of sewing it, with fabrics picked by DD2 in my fabric collection.
She picked a lovely lining too, and I think it was a good thing to do, to have the best fabric as a lining.
There will always be other "best fabrics" in my sewing corner, all the time, why not just use them :-)

DD2 has bought good things for her cousin, to put in the purse, to make a wonderful girlie birthday gift :-)


I am so in to this project - even if I did not expect myself to have the perseverance to keep on keeping on at this project only (more or less) for 3 weeks.
I am not working equally fast on the blocks all the time though, but I am getting there - aiming at finishing all the applique blocks before long.


Friendship is sewn with love and measured by kindness.



  1. I am glad you like the brooch, Hanne. I love doing small things and am not great with large ones.
    May Britt has made you such a cute angel. The toiletries bag looks lovely-- it is nice when your children want you to make something and are involved with choosing colours etc. Have a lovely weekend.

  2. Pretty toiletry purse, lovely choice of fabrics!

  3. Enjoy your little guardian sewing angel :) It watches over your stitches and stash .
