Meet Lilly's Baby

I snapped some quick pictures of baby Carlos so I could show you his cute little face.
I know I'm not supposed to name him,since when he's old enough I have to find him a new loving home,but I kind of hope this won't happen after all.
Look at these tiny claws!
Back to mommy.
Tiny Carlos needs a lot of attention,since Lilly gave birth to 3 babies first,but two of them didn't survive the first night...They where too weak,and Lilly has no experience since she these are her first babies.
But I am keeping an eye on them,making sure both of them are happy and healthy.

Birthday Gifts

Although my birthday didn't turn out the way I planned,I got some beautiful treasures that are now close to my heart.
We went to a fair the other day where I spotted this unique handmade bag.A lady was selling them with some other hand weaved items. I know (and made) bags like this before,but the fabric and the buttons where so perfect that Joci got it for me. Yes,he is awesome. I also got the tiny white elephant there too.
The bangle is from my very good friend from childhood. I think the colors are perfect.
The crochet earrings are from my best friend Anna. I am in love with it and wore them almost every day since she gave them to me.
Some more pictures of the details I love. The strap of the bag is amazing! It is three strips of fabric weaved together and sewed over with a machine so it would stay flat. I'm sure I will use this on my future bag projects,because it's simply brilliant.
The last picture is of the white elephant who joined the others.
There is a guy who makes pottery and showes up at almost every fair that I go. He makes these little elephants and paints them in many colors. I made a little tradition,that every time I see him selling somewhere,I get an elephant in different color.
And now something completly different!
My Tiny Lilly had her babies yesterday!!!! She is now the proud mommy of two little one day old kittens. :) I can't show you pictures yet,I don't want to disturb the little family. Tomorrow Mr.Móric is going to see the little ones for the first time. I hope they wsill get along well,we are keeping them seperated for safety for now.
The babies are perfect! One of them is light grey with white parts and the other one is dark grey and black. Kind of like a wild cat.
Off I go,I have lots of things planned for today. I want to sew two skirts and upcycle a dress,so wish me luck!

Chaotic Summer

I miss my blog. But that's what I get when I plan too much for one summer.
The chaos started when we left for a festival in the mountains (Joci's band had a gig there) We had a great time as always.It is a great place to go back to every year. Nature itself is worth the long ride.
When we got home I started work the next day. Exhausting,hard work on the fields. Since I need the money for camp and all the other trips I planned I worked a lot and didn't have any free time left. After working for two weeks I had a 4 day long vacation that ended by me getting even more tired.
We made 3O pairs of wet felted earrings with Anna and attempted to sell them at the Exit Festival for those 4 days.
Well lets just say it didn't go as well as we suspected. Festival people where more in to buying beer, hamburgers and plastic crap then handmade jewelry. We made some money, but I need a few more craft fairs until all the earrings are gone to a new home.
I'll get a better picture of the earrings.
After that I had my birthday party wich was fine except that my borther got hit by a car (luckily he's doing just fine,not even a scratch) So that ruined the day,but when my friends came over and we had a few drinks the day got better. :) (especially after I opened one of my presents and saw my new elephant)
After my birthday party I started working on the fields again,I got such a nice tan,it's really weird on me. :)
Today we are having a barbeque with some friends,since we missed out on a festival because of work. Then I have one more week of work wich will be totally worth it,since next weekend felting camp is starting!! :) I'm teaching the kids felting again,only this year we added one afternoon of basic crocheting and a few embroidery lessons too. This way the kids can crochet the straps for their felted bags and they can embroider the designs on there own. I can't wait. :)
I leave you with a picture of the 3 cuties at Joci's place. (We are expecting Tiny Lilly's babies any day now)
So,this was the story of my chaotic summer so far. And this was only one month!

Hope everyone is having a great summer!
