A new one.

Another thing I can cross of my list:  a bag for the daughter of my mother's best friend.

A bit pouffy.

It's been pretty quiet around here lately and that's because Windows Vista doesn't agree with me. Nor the printer for that matter. But luckily "The Brother" is kind of a PC-whisperer and now everything is back okay.

Being laptop deprived does mean I had a lot of time (no emails, no Blog reader or other Internet distractions) to do other things and so I made a bean bag pouf.

I've used two bean bags from the second hand shop just for the filling,

and I have used this pattern.
Mittie already seems to like it!

P.S. Accidentally I was in Hasselt today so I went to 'Handmade in Belgium'. It was great seeing some fellow Bloggers in real life, although I didn't talk to any of you. I'm way to shy for that!
Anyhow, I saw some great looking stuff, hopefully there will be a sequel next year.

The Hill Bag.

I made myself a little bag.
It's a small shoulder bag with an adjustable strap, two pockets in the front and a zippered one at the back.
The blue fabric is a leftover piece from this one & the lining fabric comes all the way from India.
It's simple, it's small & I like it!

Those were the days II (Another Delfien & Josefien adventure)

A few remarks from the author:

-We never wore matching dresses.
-Superdread is still Delfiens boyfriend.
-Although they didn't actually meet like this.
-We did do the silly dances though.
- According to Delfien Palm makes you want to go the bathroom. (by the way, you should really check out the link to the Palm-website. It's painfully awkward)
-I can't spell.
-I wrote this little story, but when Delfien read it, she thought it deserved a different ending:

-But he never showed up.
