It's spring!!!

And I suddenly have a lot of energy and feel inspired by so many things at the moment! For instance by this post. I love the idea of putting fabrics together to mirror what is going on in nature.

I've been longing for a nice blanket to snuggle under on the sofa for a while now, and now I somehow got it into my head that I will sew a patchwork one myself. Since I didn't want to buy any new fabric (my stash is big enough right now ...) I looked what I had and put together this pile:

I'm really happy with how well they go together! Also, they convey a feeling of a kind of relaxed and simple coziness that I would like to create in our home.

Have a good weekend!

blog coma

So, today I'm temporarily awakening from my blog coma. I've got a lot of ideas and planned projects and only so little time. Up there is my attempt at a nutcracker doll from Stitched in Time. There are a lot of projects in that book that I love and would like to make some time in the future. Who knows, maybe this summer?
