A few finished projects

So last week during my vacation I had a few projects. I have now finished some of them, and here are some pictures to show for it.

I used my new sewing machine and made a pair of pants for Jonas. I didn't get a picture of him in them, but I'm quite satisfied with the result. They are a bit long, but since there is elastic in the legs it doesn't really matter. It got me hooked, and I ordered more fabric, for another pair of pants for Jonas, which will be with pockets, he was missing his pockets. And I also got some fabric for a dress/tunic for myself. Though at the moment there isn't enough hours in the day to get the sewing machine out due to other projects.

I also finished my scarf, it was really easy to make, and I am now working on one for my mum as well. I guess she need something for babysitting Jonas this next week. On Thursday he got sick with chickenpox, on Friday I was working late, which also meant I didn't have to go into work as early as usual, and Frank is usually off early on Fridays, so he went home a bit earlier than usual, and the few hours from me leaving to him getting home our sweet neighbour babysat for us. She was also hoping that her daughter would catch the chickenpox. In Denmark you don't get a vaccination for the chickenpox, but once you had it you are immune, and the earlier you get it the easier it will be getting over it.

I need to get back to the other scarf. My mum will come here on Monday afternoon and stay till Friday, and then hopefully he will be better and be ready to go to daycare next week.
Have a wonderful weekend.


  1. Those pants are so adorable! I don't know how you have time to sew, work, and be a mom - you are awesome!

  2. Those pants are adorable! I can't wait to see the dress you make for yourself :) I'm so amazed by all your manage to do, the cooking, baking, working, mothering, and crafting - wow!

    I also loved the comment you left on my post about childhoods. I remember a post you did a while ago when Jonas was still in the pram and you mentioned watching him sleeping outside from the kitchen window. It was such a romantic idea in my mind and it made so much sense. I thought it was beautiful :)
