I want to thank all of you for all the nice comments I received after I wrote about the accident of my daughter Astrid.
We're so glad that she is ok!
She is still a little bit sore , but the doctor told us that in a couple of weeks she will feel fine again.We allready have bought her another bike because next week she needs it to go to school.When she was riding at the spot where the accident happened she was a little scared, she also said that she will be very, very careful from now on.

I found this lovely snowman fabric on ebay last week.I'm sure that I can think of lots of things to make from it.

This evening I made this peg bag from vintage fabric I have bought at a thrift shop a couple of weeks ago.I found this pattern on the internet and in 30 minutes I had a lovely vintage peg bag......

These are 2 wonderful old craft books I also found at the thrift shop. They are full of the most wonderful ideas.It's allways so nice to find such lovely things.

I'm making a small quilt and I had some fabric left over so I started thinking what else I could to with the fabric that was left over.These are fun and so easy to make.

I can't find the english word for,it in our dictionary.....

I'm going to make a couple more of them and maybe I will make some more for some coming birthdays.

Hi Monique, The word in English is 'coaster'.
I had the book on the right when I was a child in the 70's!! I made the patchwork dog from it and called him Toby....think he fell apart long ago...sniff!

coasters I would say too ;) Was wondering about that word when I did crochet starcoasters too.
I love the snowman fabric. I always see so lovely fabrics that we don't have in our shops .
Have you got any plans what to do, maybe something nice for the winter ? ;)

It’s a relief to see that others than me have things on their blog related to Christmas and winter:-)
The peg bag looks fabulous!
