Deck the halls

Happy 1st Advent,

because last year we had this ornate Advent box, this year I wanted to keep it simple. So I only put 4 candles and some decorative ornaments, I had on hand, on a silver plate.
As well we have these christmas ornaments in a hurricane glass. 
At the kitchen we have this cute little arrangement that I made last year.
Even our private dragon is in christmas mood. He put on his Santa hat and is guarding our front door.
By the way, did I mention that last week this ol' blog turned 2? Can you imagine? I've never expected that I would have as much fun as I have with this blog, after 2 years. Although there are more and more blogs about crafting I will go on with it and hope you'll enjoy.

How the Grinch stole Christmas Quilt

Hi Y'all

because I'm a bit under quilting fever since I have made the Minnie quilt and the Superhero quilt for my niece and my nephew. This time  I planned a quilt for my own use. I wanted to make a jelly roll quilt for a while and that was the chance. It was not that easy as I imagined but in the end I had a "How the Grinch stole christmas" quilt! 

I wish you a warm and cozy christmas season and hope to see you soon.

Santas little helper!

Hi everybody!

This year we skipped Halloween because we weren't at home to welcome all the little creepy figures.

So next is the holly jolly christmas stuff. Last year I've made this cute little elf on the shelf to have some fun at christmas season.

This year I've met this busy little guy. He's one of Santas hard working helpers. I think he's checking Santas list, twice.
I worked hard to be on the "Nice" side. Please keep fingers crossed for me.

On which side will he find you?

Doctor Who - Don't blink!

Hi Y'all!

As you may know (or not) I'm a fan of the BBC Series Doctor Who. Special characters are the Weeping Angels 
(They're a race of predatory creatures. They are as old (or almost as old) as the universe. However, no one knows where they come from. They turn into stone when they are viewed. In this form, they usually hold their hands up to their face to avoid that they see each other and they must remain in the locked form forever. From this attitude they get their name Weeping Angels. When no one is looking the angels move very quickly. They use this capability for stalking and also to attack and kill unwary prey.)
For those of you who want to know more about the weeping angels, can read about them here and here.

Thank you for stoppin by and don't blink!!

Little Mermaid

Hi there,

hope you're all well. Today I want to show you another custom order. One of my dearest colleagues asked for crocheting a mermaid for her "little" daughter who was turning 30. 

Here's my version of a little mermaid. It's made without a pattern but I think it turned out great.
When I went on searching the internet for a free pattern, all I found was this nice pic which I was inspired by.
As you can see, the birthday girl liked her present very well.
See ya soon
