Pippi-Lotta the Dragon

Welcome back,

like I told you last week, here's my latest amigurumi. It's a very big and cuddly dragon that I made for a good friend.

What more can I say? Maybe because of the warmth I have no idea. Even the dragon is too warm. She hopped in the pool right after the photo shoot.

Cat padding

Hi y'all,

exciting things happend at "Home is in the Heart" last week. We got new windows all over the house. Because of the fact the the house was build in 1900, it's always an adventure to make changes. You'll never know what you're expecting.
But everything went great and the windows were replaced within 3 days. Because we had no desire to do this task ourselves, we had an appointment with a carpenter.

Because of the new windows I've decided it's time to change the cat's padding at the windows sill. I bought some nice fleece blankets and bit of batting and sewed these cushions quick and easy. I've adjusted them the size of the window sill.
They're nice and soft and washable because of the one or two cat hair that will stick on. Next week I'll show you my lastest amigurumi.

Bedside lamp make over

Hello there,

today I have a new make over for you. Wanna know the story of this pretty little lamp?

I had this lamp for years and with time it really got ugly. I thought about to give it a make over for a while.

So, I gave it a try. I covered the shade with some fabric scraps left over, from former projects. 

I painted the bottom of the lamp with mirror paint I bought a while ago. 

I think the result is quite presentable. It looks much nicer now. What was your last make over? I would like to hear more about it.
