Welcome 2009!

We welcomed 2009 by taking a walk to the lake that is close to our house. With 10C below (14F) it was almost completely frozen. Lots of other families had come down to ice skate, play hockey or just take a walk on the ice. Even if it has been less than two weeks since the sun turned its course we can already notice that the light lingers on a bit longer. We made use of the beautiful light to take some pictures.

I also had enough light to take photos of these coasters that I made with the cotton/linen blend fabric I bought on Etsy just before Christmas.

I like how they turned out and I'm as much in love with the fabric as I were before. These are a gift to someone who loves tea and like home made gifts, but I think I will have to make another set for myself. I have some of the same fabric in pink ready to be stitched on this week end.

Looking forward to share 2009 with you, too see what you make, be inspired and do as much crafting as possible!


  1. No sé si te dije ya que es un gustazo volver a leerte y después de una ausencia por tan buena causa. Nosotros hemos aumentado la familia hace un mes, así que se nos ha esfumado el tiempo.

    Preciosas fotos heladas y más aún los posavasos.

  2. Hello! Happy New Year! I hope that 2009 is fantastic! The coasters are great and I am sure that there will be many more crafting adventures in 2009.

  3. happy new year to you! :)
    those coasters are LOVELY! they remind me that I should make some for my mom... maybe doing some embroidery, too?!
    (and I'm curious... do I see a lensbaby effect in those pictures or is it just me wanting to see that?)

  4. ¡Me encantan estos posavasos! Son preciosos.

  5. love the way you take the pictures.....beautiful!

  6. This is beautiful. I love the blue, the simple and small cups and tea time written at the corner. You make beautiful things.


Thank you for letting me know you were here!
