Let the fun begin! :D


Here is my latest order, these lovely styrofoam decorations. 
I'm still trying to decide what to do with this, I want it to be exactly like I've imagined.  
And the wreaths are huge! Much bigger than I expected.

I'm so excited :D

I've got Christmas in the brain...

Is anybody else thinking of Christmas? Have you started working on your Christmas projects yet?
All of a sudden, I looked at the calendar and got spooked. Is it too soon?

I wanted to TRY and have a methodic, stress-free Christmas this year, which means working on the projects early on. But is it too soon?

I'm filled with ideas, it's going to be a very Merry Christmas indeed :)

My brand new kind of quilt. cute, cute, cute!!

I've shown you the first time I've attempted to do this kind of appliquéd, animal quilt.
Meanwhile I've had a chance to do two more and here they are: elephants and kittens, oh my! :)

Next stop, appliquéd owls :D

The perfect remedy

For some time now I've felt out of tune with the crafting world.
And it was not good for me at all, for it was the crafting world that allowed me to discover who I was and what I was meant to do. I changed my whole freakin life over it, how could I have turned my back?

I can't even tell you how long it's been since the last time I've sat reading my favorite craft blogs, but I can tell you it's been well over a year, which is incredible to me!
I miss it, I need it and today, I've done it!

Needless to say I am nowhere near finishing it, but something in me is already waking up. Truth is I've been too focused on orders and selling and thinking what the buyers will want, while totally forgetting what it is I want and need to keep it up.

I have so many dreamy projects tucked away safely in a drawer waiting for me to keep up with all the orders. My blog, have you looked at my blog lately? I certainly haven't, I come here, I share, I move on. And it shows!

So hopefully I'm back for good and won't get sucked in again. Thank you, all of you to take time out of your lives to keep your blogs, to nurture them and, in return, nurture me. The least I can do is pay it foward :)

A brand new quilt with a brand new design :)

With cute little appliquéd elephants, this is probably the cutest quilt I gave ever done and already I have a request for a second one :)

My next project...o meu próximo projecto


I was asked to make something like this for a couch in some need for TLC (cat couch, you know how it is).

I'm so excited! I think it will look amazing once finished and it will be done in Ikea fabrics, and you know how much I loveeee Ikea!
I think it's funky and awesome and I can't wait to start :)

Baby document pouch...another first :)

A while ago I made a quilt for baby Nicole and now her mom tells me she needs a pouch to keep all her important documents. She asked me that it would match the quilt. So here it is :) I hope baby Nicole and her mother approve!

Crazy for owls :)

On their way to the USA :)

3 little owls
