Sashiko embroidery coasters

We desperately needed to add some coasters to our collection, having lost two from this series, that was a gift from a friend, crafted in Poland but unfortunately can't remember the name of the company.

I did those with orange thread, inspired by sashiko embroidery coasters on etsy, here and here

Merry Christmas!

Some unexpected events forced us to stay home where we had not planned to have a christmas tree, luckily we managed to find one at the last minute this morning to add some xmassy flair to our living room :-)

And found a great xmas present packaging idea from Kandeejohnson

Now we are ready for Christmas! Glædelig Jul ! Joyeux Noel ! :-)

Windowsill cover

I spend nowadays most of my time on the sofa, breastfeeding our new son. And using the windowsill to store everything from the bottle of water, burp clothes, pacifier, iphone, computer to chocolates ... so I needed to protect it from this daily agression of mine 

I fell in love with the Herringbone tutorial from Stitched in color, did two stripes and used one of them to create the windowsill cover
