DIY – Nostalgia, my very first application

Two years ago I sewed a table runner (my first) as a present. It was then that I made applications for the first time and noticed how much fun it was for me.

Today I just wanted to show what I had done this year with the rest of the fabric from the table runner. And yes, it went to the same person as the table runner hihi

I noticed that I hadn’t posted the table runner at all, like many things I had sewn myself.

OK, here it is. I found the idea of sewing birds with fabric printed with birds funny.

Here’s a pair of birds. I had found something similar on the internet and used it for my own good.
The black seam, which is not very even, I made extra like this. I thought it looked better that way.

The only things I don’t like anymore are the eyes and the beak. Today I would no longer sew them with the machine, but with my hand.

It was not only my first application, but also the first time that I sewed such a corner. Thanks to Youtube πŸ˜€

And now for the table runner. There are some things I sewed that I don’t like anymore, but I still like the table runner ❀

But now to the part I wanted to post today.

I still had some fabric in my closet and was thinking about what I could do with it. It should go to the same person as the table runner, so it wouldn’t be bad if I found something that fits.

It was the time before Easter where you can buy Easter decorations in all shops. There I saw a basket in white and I got the right idea what I could sew.

The basket is big enough that you can put flowers in it in spring or a rabbit at Easter πŸ™‚

Maybe I should learn how to sew stuffed animals? Hihi

My newest sewing project – A dinosaur t-shirt

I sewed so many things for Miss M, but never anything for her little brother!

Last year I started a project for him which is very time-consuming and so that he doesn’t have to wait so long, I put this T-shirt in between.

I found the Jersey panel a few weeks ago on the internet and thought about David.
Like most 5 year old boys he loves dinosaurs.

David, this is for you πŸ™‚

Colors of fall, simply beautiful – Photos

Is summer really over?
If yes, then the weather doesn’t know that hehe
Last weekend it was so warm that I went out only with shirt and shorts to take photos.

I wanted to make the first fall photos in the sun, because there all colors shine and fall shows itself from its most beautiful side.

I took the first photo at a small tower. It was covered over and over with red leaves.

Fall 2018-7

Not only have I enjoyed the sunny day, also bees were still on the way

Fall 2018-1

Whether these are fall flowers, I don’t know. But the colors were simply fantastic.

Fall 2018-6

Fall 2018-3

But also some trees have their colourful leaves visible from afar

Fall 2018-2

I wonder why the leaves do not turn from green directly to brown …
Is it nature’s help to tell the animals that, for example, bears have to put on winter fat, or birds have to fly to warmer regions?
Or is it just for people like me so we can take great photos? Hihi

Baby animals in the zoo (photos)

I went to the zoo – again. Now is exactly the right time to go to the zoo because you can see many baby animals.
Weather was not so good because it was very hot and humid.
But to see the baby animals was worth it.

This baby lion was the first thing I took pictures of today.

Lion baby

The tiger is not a baby but he has not let the lion baby out of his sight! Maybe he thought it would be his next meal hehe (and I liked this photo)

Tiger

Bear mommy never let her baby out of her sight. If the little one went anywhere, mommy would run after the baby

Mama bear with baby

I felt sorry for the little monkey. He was playing alone with the sticks the whole time. No grown-up monkey came to him once…

Baby ape

The scene with these monkeys was funny. At first I thought the little guy wanted to drink. But he bent over and over again and looked at the water. Maybe he wanted to know who the monkey was looking at him in the water.

I have no idea what the bird is called but these huge Feet!!!!! πŸ˜€

Bird with huge feet

This little calf must have been very young. It was very unsteady and fell into a small ditch. Luckily, nothing happened.

On the beach – photos and sound

The last days I have been on vacation at my favourite beach ❀ ❀ ❀

One night I recorded the sound of the sea with my mobile. It was a little windy as you can hear πŸ™‚

I’ve taken lots of photos

The next photos are made by low tide

Say it with Shakespeare – Zoo photos

Last weekend we went to a zoo.  ❀

I made a lot of photos and when I saw this photo with the ape I started laughing because it remembered me of a scene from one of my fav writer William Shakespeare πŸ˜€

I tried to find Shakespeare quotes that works with my photos πŸ˜€

To eat, or not to eat: that is the question

Zoo-16

Well roared, lion ape!

What a piece of work is a crane! How noble in reason!Β 

Zoo-13

I like this place and could willingly waste my time on it

Zoo-10

But, soft! What light through yonder window breaks?
It is the east, and you are the sun.

Zoo-15

Out, damned spot! Out, I say!

Zoo-06

They do not love, that do not show their love.

Zoo-03

O sleep! O gentle sleep!

Zoo-14

Do you think because you are virtuous, that there shall be no more cakes and ale?

Zoo-09

Self-love, my liege, is not so vile a sin, as self-neglecting.

Zoo-02

For which of my bad parts didst thou first fall in love with me?

Zoo-08

Fight for the last gasp.
