Good guess.... Maybe it was a bit too difficult? I am making little cushions. They are for the chairs where our boys sit on while they play (haha, so, they are not used very much). But they look nice anyway, this is how they will look like when they are finished (I still have to make the backsides).

Since there were no good answers, I still decided to give away the fabrics to someone who left a comment and I drew a winner: Marieke from MiekKs, you are the lucky one!

What I am making...
If you leave a comment with the right answer (or send me an e-mail), you can win the fabrics that I used for this project (the one with the stars and the one with the zoo animals, 1 Fat Quarter of each).
If there is more than 1 right answer, I will draw a winner.
This "contest" will end on January, 21th.

To protect our new table

During the christmas holiday, we bought a new table for the living room.
The previous one didn't last very long (I think for about a year), because of falling glasses of lemonade, playing with cars on it and other unidentified falling items (read: toys).
To be sure that this table will last a bit longer, I made some coasters to put our cups on.
I received the fabrics via a 5x5inch (12x12cm) fabric swap via Swap-bot. I had them already for a while, thinking about what to do with them. They turned out to be perfect for this project.

Ice fun

Last weekend, we had the opportunity to go ice-skating on "real" ice (yeah, that's me behind the pram).
It was 12 years ago since the last time....
I love the cold weather, it makes everything look so crisp and clean.

Skies are beautiful, especially in the mornings.

By the way, no more frost since Monday, so all the snow and a lot of ice is already gone now.

I am still there....
It is freezing here for already two weeks and that is quite extraordinary.
We had some snow as well last week, so my mum brought the sleigh (where we used to sleigh on when we were kids) to use for our kids. I even brought Teun to school with it and he thought that was great fun. Karel likes it as well, as long as he is fully covered with blankets and wears his hat and gloves.....

I bought myself a warm black hat for this weather, but I thought that it was a bit dull as it was. So, I ordered some crocheted flowers (Yes....I know....it is so easy to make them, but not for me.....and yes, I tried!) and I love the way it looks now!
