Cha chain chain -lamp

With one long chain looped around the handle this library lamp became more pleasing to the eye, maybe also for the eyes of the beloved Tinttu.

Two wrongs make a right

March 7, 2016

I got this thing about scarves. I love them! I get attached to one and wear it all the time until the next one comes along. I still keep the old ones around even if they’re ripped. New preloved items also find my way.

Two scarves made into one

This time I had two scarves which both had pleasing colours but something else wrong with them. The long stripy scarf wasn’t long enough to my taste and it had some small holes. The woolen rectangle was also too small. Since they had matching colours I cut the long one in half where the holes were and handstitched the the folded woolen scarf on top. The ravelling ends of the striped scarf were conveniently locked between the woolen scarf folds. Finally I embroided the woolen part with some geometrical shapes and leftover yarn which also works keeping the folds in place. Needles to say this is my favorite scarf for this winter!

Braided

I wanted to celebrate going to the movies with braided ponytail. Not exactly your Princess Leia style but the latest Star Wars film was great!
