Halloween 2016

Happy Halloween!

This year's halloween is inspired by Pinterest. Am I addicted? Yes! So let's see what I found.
  • Illuminated Jars 
    I got the idea, as often, while searching trough Pinterest when I saw this and that.

  • Halloween Birthday cake
    (For my little niece, - she turned 4 on Friday - because my mum told me that I had to bring a cake especially for the kids. OK, nothing easier than that!) I was inspired by this cake
  • Halloween Cookies
    I found these and these cookies that I wanted to try. But to be honest, they were a total fail so I haven't got photos from this desaster.
  • Halloween wreath
    This one it totally inspired by myself (thrilling!) and a tip from hubby

Have a spooky evening

Dear all!

After I have crocheted only black-yellow dragons for a while, I was very glad when I got the request to crochet another animal. Admittedly, it's already black again, but it was a nice change. This is Jünter.

It's the mascot of the soccer team Borussia Mönchengladbach. Even if I have no idea of soccer, I hope it will bring luck to his new owner.

See ya all next week with - surprise!! - a Halloween post.

Welcome back!

Since we first bought our house 5 years ago we had an old TV as a"barn find". We often talked about what to do with it. We tried to find another good home for this buddy, but no one was interested in adopting this sweetie. So we decided that we will keep it and give it the chance for a totally other kind of life - as a cat tv.

This is what it looked like when we found it at the barn.

After hubby had removed all the e
lectronic components I did a hard but successful job with sanding.

Then I painted everything new in dark brown and white.

Unfortunately we couldn't save the adjustment buttons.
So we will have a look at the
flea markets in the area, next time.

For the bottom I upholstered a chipboard with volume fleece and cord fabric.

To make it easier for the cats to adopt the new furniture, we laid in a blanket that has already been accepted by them.

Hope you all have an as compfy place as our cats to stay warm and cozy when autumn starts.

Snowflake hat

Hi Folks!

Nice that you're back. Because it's getting colder outside, I was asked by my sweet neighbor if I could do a few new hats for her little daughters. Both girls love, how might it be different, the Disney movie "Frozen". So I was asked if I can do hats with snowflakes on it. This is what I came up with.
I was inspired by this hat from Sweet Southern Stitches that I found over at
Thanks for dropping in.

Halloween Quilt

Happy Fall Y'all!

Finally autumn has arrived. So I thought it's time to do a quilt again. And because October is Halloween-Season at all, what could be better than a halloween quilt?

I bought these nice fabrics over at Dawanda* 

The back is a cotton duvet cover, I bought at IKEA*.

I designed the pattern with the super easy to use, free software from Pattern Jam.*

The result is a cozy Halloween quilt.

: Did you mentioned the 2 little pumpkins at the bottom of the halloween quilt? These were 2 of this year's harvest.

Thank you for stopping by              

*All opinions are mine and I wasn't paid for it.
