Singer 401

Oh happy day!

A few days ago I talked to a very nice friend of mine and she asked if I'm interested in an old sewing machine. Of course I said yes, I do! And now, look at this beauty! 
It's exactly the same machine I've learned to sew. It came built-in in this cabinet
and lots and lots of paraphernalia. 
I think I've to read the instructions to learn what I can do with all these things.
Let's have a closer look at the instructions. There are some handwritten notes.

OMG! This baby is from 1963(!!!) and was over 1.000 German Marks. This means about 500 Euro. In 1963 this was a a small fortune. And for me, it was for free. Lucky me!

Due to the small space in my recently completed crafts room we decided to built it out of the cabinet and find another solution. So dear hubby worked hard to lower it into my crafting table. But in the end he won the battle. And I'm sooo happy. I am excited about what I'm going to sew with this machine.

Crafts room

Hi Y'all,

today's the day to show you the big project I was working on. It's my crafts room! There was one room, which we had not renovated yet. I started the renovation back in June, whenever I had a little time. So it took quite a while, but now I'm finished and I'm really happy with the result. But see yourself.

Even if there is so much space to store all my craft supplies, I took the chance to declutter my stock.
I took over a few items I made before. Maybe you've spied the Pin board I've made last year. YES! Now I've got a big blackboard of my own, to plan and scetch my ideas. Or just for doodling.
The tin cans I've made to store all my pens, brushes and other little things who were needed so much for crafting, moved to the crafts room, too.

Even a few of my crocheted pieces found their way on the shelves. Like the Weeping Angels and Kurt the armadillo.

You may be curious what things will arise in this room from now on.

Wibbly, wobbly, timey wimey

Hi Folks,

I hope you made it well into the new year. Sorry for being absent for a while but I have a bigger project to do, I hope to show you next week.

In the meantime here's another creation inspired by Doctor Who. Last time I did weeping angels. If you missed them. You can read about here. It's a Doctor Who Shirt.
I've often seen something similar over at pinterest but never made one by myself. This was the first time a played around with bleech and I think it worked out quiet good for the first time.

I cut the design with my silhouette and put it onto a dark blue shirt I bought especially for this project. In fact it was the same like I bought for my xmas grinch shirt.
Then I went on spraying, thinking it might take a while until I see the difference. Fail! It only took seconds until the dark blue get's brighter. 
"It's bigger inside!" Hope to see ya next time
