Several new boxes are in production! Love to make them and I love the shabby, vintage style. They are not completely ready yet! Will attend a fair this coming weekend, so I am looking very much forward to show off my articles. The rest of the week will be full of work and I hope that my new (old) car will be ready still today, so that I can move again.... ~✿~
I just finished a new baby panty, made of lovely pink Bamboo yarn. It turned out fine; only the ribbon is too short and I have to buy more next week...if I only get my new car!!! Mine broke down last week...I feel helpless and torn without a car! The ribbon has crowns and the words PRINCESS on it; very cute.... •~♥~•
The old lovely bowl matches perfect to the nice old plate I recently bought on the fleamarket - like it!
Saturday it was traditional Farmer's Market in town! Here are some impressions. Unfortunately it was heavy rain most of the day and not too many people exhibiting their items, so it was a quite quiet event, but hope you will enjoy the pix anyway
This story is told my me, Gizmo, a rescued.... here you see me on my racetrack ruined by wild boars!
Day before yesterday in the early eve mum and I wanted to go out, but just on the side of the mainroad I discovered a baby hedgehog. Just by the way from the railway station were all the people hurried home from work. Mum almost stepped on it, too. It is so small; only a few centimeters. I showed mum that it was sitting there and she took it up an brought it home. It was already very cold outside and mum made a box ready, but the little urchin escaped as it was very vivid. She found it and had it back in the box, but it was not secure there. Hedgehogs are active in the dark, so mum decided to have it in the shower tub over night. She put lots of nice things into our tub, like newspapers, leaves, a hamsterhouse, a towel and food, catfood. The tiny urchin enjoyed also some small shrimps. Mum looked into the internet as she wasn't sure how to handle those young ones. She only knows it with grown, but it is not really different. It was also written that big temp differences are not good for urchins. Our bathroom was cold all day, maybe too cold for this small one, although it was wrapped in newspapers and leaves...
Last evening we finally got a place for it in an urchin shelter and the lady said that its condition is not good. She had it in a warming bed and mum was surprised - and sad! If I had not noticed it, it would have died last night out as it was very frosty. And now the little one may die anyway, although it was at home with us. Mum wanted to do all things right for it and maybe all was in vain......urchins are protected animals overhere. Babies with a weight above 100 gr. normally survive easy outside, but it was very frosty that night and still is; very early this Fall. Our hedgehog had only 125 gr. ! Mum constantly thinks of it and is sad, but she would never had the idea to put it in a very warm place as it is a wild animal - I saved this little life and mum maybe spoiled it all. I don't think she will sleep good at night! Hedgehogs get run over on the roads by millions here; that's why they are protected...
this photo of my little friend is not very good, but please have a look at it and think of it! Y
The sun shines bright, the wind is chill, but the sunbeams conjure lightspots in my workroom. Isn't that just lovely? The spots are on my globe and some older, wooden boxes I once made with stencil cuts and gem handles.
Here are my new Rose Boxes - just ready
And here's one of the old, woodboxes with my fave Polar Bear Cuts, containing some of my collected wooden beads.
The Toadstool Boxes are sold and before they travel to their new owner I thought of sharing some pix of them with you! I posted them before, but the tops were not quite visible, so here they are, although the photos are not good - sorry for that! Hope you still enjoy them?! Think I will make some more - similar! Nice new week to you!~✿~
The first Fall Storm is raging over us this weekend! The dog and I sure had to take a walk and we ended up being completely soaked. The rest of the day will be enjoyed at home with food, tea, TV and needlework.....apropos here are some more colours off my blog
