Ooopps! Beim Durchschauen meiner Fotos ist mir aufgefallen, dass ich meine letzten Häkelarbeiten ganz vergessen habe zu posten! Deshalb nachträglich jetzt noch ein paar Fotos von Lady Rabbit und Mister Deer! Ich wollte gerne so eine Art Familienporträt gerahmt machen, das war die ursprüngliche Idee. Und dann kam noch das Hintergrunddoily, die Borte, etwas Lace, ne Blume und die Anziehsachen dazu, bis alles fertig war. Hast du auch gesehen, dass die Dame eine freche Schleifenhandtasche besitzt? Und der Mann scheint als Schaffner beim japanischen Shinkansen zu arbeiten, zumindest trägt er sein Abzeichen auf dem Strickpulli!
It is raining since three days, a lot! It seams that there is no break in between, just steady rain. So depressing! But then, there just was a knocking at my door and it was Marcel, our lovely postman! Dressed in a bright yellow rain coat he let me sign for a parcel. And not only for something electronic my husband ordered, nope, it was the highly anticipated shipment from japan with fresh books. Did I tell you before that I love Etsy so much? If not, here it is: I love you Etsy! I can order all these incredible Japanese crafting books with you and they arrive only 2 weeks later! Well guys, I am sitting back on my sofa now, with a bunch of books around me. Trust me, you can get inspired even on a rainy day
I finished another one of those crafty book jackets that I am making for my German baking book Backen mit Love. It´s themed „Alice in Wonderland“ with the compulsory „Eat Me“ sign. The fabric was waiting to be used in my cupboard since my last visit to Tokyo (The fabric store Okadaya in Shinjuku is crafty heaven). Unfortunately I did only buy half a meter last time, so if you happen to be around, I would like to place another order. The cute cake button is from Okadaya as well.
I started to work on some crafty book jackets for my German baking book „Backen mit Love“. Main reason was that my personal copy of the book needed a cover, but when I saw all those cute fabrics that I have collected, I just had to start designing. Here´s the first that is finished. So cute. I know what you might be thinking. Can I have one ? Honestly, I don´t know yet. I guess yes. It depends on how many I will have in the end and whether there is a nice idea on how to allocate them. I don´t want to sell them or simply do a lottery. Maybe you have some ideas. Although, I am not making promises, I know myself, maybe it will be just to hard to let them go. I keep you posted.
