Starting up again..........

After finishing school after an ok exam on a Friday, I went down with a sore throat on the Saturday
Fourteen days later - now - feeling much better and ready for Christmas preparations. Well - better late than never.

Christmas decorations made:

Cloves in an orange is totally the smell of Christmas for me - spicy and sweet.

I also made different cookies today: Vanilla wreaths and gingerbread nuts and cake figurines - all parts of my Christmas:


Dekorated with white icing:

Indian Hindu wedding.....

These days it is one year since my husband and I went to India to participate in a Hindu wedding. It was one of the greatest experiences of my life. We were together with so many wonderful people and met such a great hospitality.
Thank you Swathi and Sarath for giving us these fantastic memories

Quick hair accessories.....

Saturday morning I decided what to wear at the big yearly party in the company. The last one.
In my 20 years I have only missed one af these great parties.
This time we were approx. 800 people and with great entertainment by Sko og Torp and Sweethearts.

Well... Saturday morning I decided what to wear and found out that I needed something for my hair. The dress was black with lilac coloured wide edge bands.

Here is the result. The pics are taken Sunday morning - the day after the party and my hair is very little styled. But at least no hangover under the hair :-)

Sorry for the blurred quality of the pics

The dress is finished....

and so is one more :-)

I am not totally sure of the size yet. The yarn I used is not the same as in the recipe, so I had to improvise. I need to measure up the dress to state the size :-)

This is dress no. 2 - the pattern is slightly different:

Pimp your dishtowels..........

A small easy crea between all the school work.

Pimp your dishtowels with some great contrasting colours:

with a small and simple crochet lace.

I am planning to do more of these!

What a great feeling just a little creativity can cause :-) :-)

Well - back to school work!

My school logbook......

In my education at UCL I have got one of these Chinese notebooks in black and red, with lines....

and so did everybody else.
Almost on the other side of the street near the school, is "Søstrene Grene" located, a great shop where you can buy great stuff like masking tape.
Combining these to things gave this result (at least in my hands) and now my logbook is unique :-)

I do hate those premade lines in the book, but I just pretend they do not exist :-)

Yes! - I found time.....

I found time for making a little crocheting or rather I took the time. I can always do laundry tomorrow :-)
First I finished my school homework and then - pleasure!!

I love these colours.

The yarn is DROPS Delight 75% wool and 25% polyamid

It is supposed to be a little dress. I will post the result when I am finished.
Right know I feel relieved and happy!
I have missed using my hands on things like this a lot :-)
I really need to find out how to fit it in to the daily life, the next 5 weeks.

I miss crea........

I really like going to school again :-) The UCL is great.

But I so much miss time for creativity, and I really hope to find just a little time in the weekend,

In the mean time, here is a drawing I made last year of my friend Rafey in India. He is a great guy and we visited him last year in November and this year he was in Denmark.

The drawing changes appearance a bit, when I insert it here, I don't know why.

By the way - his sister is getting married today - Congratulations with sis - Rafey :-)

Great weekend............

Not much creativity this weekend, but lots of talking and laughing.
I have been on a great family reunion from Friday to Sunday in Fiskenæs, Gråsten, together with 17 family members.

We were in 2 summer houses and had a really good time together.

I forgot to take a lot of photos - but here is a couple --- or four :-)

Here my youngest daughter Winnie and her little Mila:

Back to school....

If you have read the very first post in my blog you will know, that from end of March I will be without job after 20 years in the same company.
It has been hard, but slowly I have got used to the thought of leaving the known and step into something unknown.
I have made a plan A = Getting a new job as soon as possible. Plan B = Getting further education - starting with 120 hours of basic pedagogical training and then afterwards study for educator (not a full teacher eduation)

Wish me luck!
Well, plan B was supposed to take place, if plan A failed. But suddenly I found out that my company would pay for the 120 hour basic education and I could even use my working hours for it. I also found out that the next class started the 31 of October - yes this month :-)
I called the school and asked if they had room for one more and guess what - they had just one seat left and I got it.

I guess Lady Fortune had her eyes on me that day :-)

So now I will run plan A and B at the same time, and that means a lot of work, because school is not all week - max. 4 days a week. The other days I am at work and in between I need to do my school homework.

So probably 6 weeks with a very little time for creative fiddling around.

Some friends emptied their stores of fabric and gave it all to me :-) Thank you friends!!!

I guarantee that my sewing machine will be used a lot....

This is just some of it:

Love under the hats......

My Rainbow hats were a success.

My daughter Janni and granddaughter My put them on immediatlely.
The photos are perhaps not the sharpest, but it doesn't matter, because they are filled with love.

My has turned the rear side of the hat in front :-)

Looking back at summer.....

I love sailing and I love taking pictures and these 2 things are a great combination.
Here are some of my favourite shots from a summer long gone....
And yes we had some rain during our 3 weeks summer vacation on the boat, but most days felt like sunny :-)

The trip went from Ringkøbing Fjord, out in the North Sea - up the westcoast of Jutland. Through Limfjorden. Went to Læsø and Sæby and all the way back again.
