Kaisa´s Birthday ....

Hi there!
I don´t like needleworks. Sewing, stitiching, crocheting...not my world, I even get aggressive when trying it !
So it´s better for me (and the ones who are with me) to buy these things :-)
This most wonderful little dress is knitted with something that looks for me like simple sewing thread (so I´ve been told it isn´t ) and is just adorable. It is made by Thea. (Click the name for the link). It will be displayes in the girl´s room in my Ballerina´s house. (One day...)

As I have been playing around with toys and children´s stuff at the time when I had to finish Kaisa´s Birthday gift I was in the mood to make some baby´s items for her. Kaisa´s birthday was last weekend so I now can show you what I made:

The baby is bought as my attempt was simply far too ugly :-) but I again did some mini needle felting for the bunny and the music-toy-moon. For the baby-carrier I just glued hat straw around a shampoo bottle cap and lined it with fabrics.

Again it was a whole lot of fun making these, thanks to Kaisa for organising this swap and I hope you had a
Wonderful Birthday!!!!

I have been honoured by Rosella with an award. Thank you Rosella for giving it to me!

The rules say that I must tell you five things about me (and of course I will not tell you the most interesting things, haha!)
Here we go: 
- I am LOUSY with realizing the dimensions of  my car. If you should see me unparking, you should better jump away quickly...
- something I remained since the months of my pregnancy with Jenny is my absolute dislike of the smell of canned fish. My wonderful husband who really enjoys canned fish only dares to eat it secretly when I am already asleep. But I still can smell it the next morning...
- I am big fan of the Harry Potter books and read all of them at least twice.
- I had to hold back tears when I first heard the poem "Steps" spoken by Hermann Hesse himself. Those words went straight into my heart.

Now, next thing would be to give this award to 15 other blogs. I could name more but I just have these
five for you. The blogs who make me want to do minis when I visit them:

And finally here is the link for Susi´s strawberry tutorial.

For the giveaway I will follow Norma´s advice and make something I enjoy. It will be similar to the swap gift for Drora so I will not show you before the end of june :-) So much time, yeah ! 

A wonderful week to all of you!

  3. Hello Sandra!
    The little knitted dress is very beautiful.
    Thea is very talented knitter.
    -Sandra, I love your baby gifts to Kaisa! You said that you do not know about knitting but I say that you really know something about needle felting! The bunny and the music-toy-moon are adorable.♥
    Congratulations for the award!
    You are the one who deserved it!:)
    Hugs, piikko

  5. Sandra, The gift you sent to Kaisa was so darling! I am sure she was really pleased!!

    1. Patty, I´m sorry to admit: YOUR gift will be completely different...

  6. The little dress is wonderful. Your gifts for Kaisa are fabulous; she will be very happy.
    Bye Faby

  9. Congratulations on your well deserved award. The baby dress is wonderful. I love the gifts you sent to Kaisa they are beautiful.

  10. The baby carrier and felted pieces are very very cute!

    I'm definately going to follow the link for Thea, that little dress is absolutely gorgeous. I agree with you that it's better to do what you do well and take advantage of the skills of others who can do some things better :) I used to have an attitude of 'I must make everything' bit now I really enjoy having pieces from other miniaturists in my houses.

    1. Yes! Time is so limited for the hobby. I gave up trying to make things I just don´t have the talent for, it so much more fun to swap or to buy these things :-)

  11. Hi Sandra, the little dress and the gifts you made for Kaisa's Birthday are soooo sweet !!
    Congratulations on your well deserved award :)

    Hugs Mieke xxx

  12. Uuuuuups, jetzt wäre dieser Blogbeitrag doch fast durchgerutscht. Irgendwie funktioniert unser Internet in den letzten Tagen nicht richtig. Ich hoffe es klappt und ich kann den Kommentar noch richtig absenden.
    Dein Geschenk für Kaisa ist so süß. Der Babykorb ist toll gemacht, der Hase und der Mond sind so süß. Eigentlich is einfach alles entzückend, natürlich auch das Baby.
    Kaisa hat an dem Geschenk bestimmt viel Freude.
    Liebe Grüße Craftland

    Ach so, und das gekaufte gestrickte Kleidchen ist auch so wunderschön, hast du gut ausgesucht.
