A bit of this and a bit of that

Crocheted tiny loops.



Sewed a petticoated skirt for Eva.




Read(ing) these...


...in between of making Easter related projects (no, I don't think it's too early), cutworking, and sewing costumes for a masquerade.

Busy busy! Have a great day! Always love the little random crochet!

You're keeping busy too, Maya! The little crocheted rings are cute. Are they part of something bigger?...

Maja said...

Please report back on the "Paulo Coelho" book when your done.... HE IS SO GREAT! the first book I read by him was "O Alquimista" (took the original tittle, read it in Danish, with Danish tittle, off cause)
I was just blown away... had it in my mind for weeks after.
Is "The Zahir" just as good?

Little Treasures said...

Michele: I plan to make accessories with them, nothing specific yet; I am making them in all possible colors and waiting for inspiration to flow in!
Maja: I too was like mesmerized when I read the Alchemist. Fell in love with the storytelling again! I've just started with the Zahir - somehow was disappointed with the beginning (maybe I was over-expecting!) and I hope there's going to be an unexpected twist and it turns for the wondrous and enchanting. Will send you a mail when I am finished!

A masquerade, sounds so intriguing. You must share more photos of that skirt too!!! Your sewing machine must be working again :)

Little Treasures said...

Theodora: Thank you for dropping by!!
KJ: Of course I will! That was just a tease! I am making her an upper part to go with so I will make a special post for it! And yes, the machine is fixed. Imagine the impact of the letter :)

Sus: The skirt is for Eva so I hope she'll be willing to model it - or I have to think of fantastic things to bribe her into it! :)
