WIP – Baby Quilt I
  I said I’d started to make a baby quilt for the baby in my last post and here’s how far I’ve gotten. I did go out and buy some FQ for this project as well as backing fabric and surprisingly I fancied some yellow for the back. Must be a first, since I’ve n...

Quite a few weeks ago now I made this baby nest, using this tutorial (it's in Swedish), but modifying the method slightly. I was thinking of making one even before we had Freja but never got around to it. This time I hope it’ll come in handy for daytime use...

Emerging from a haze with way too many thoughts in my head...
Ok, another blog silence has ended. I went and got food poisoning last week, not nice at all, so I feel like I’m finally emerging from a haze with way too many thoughts in my head.  Since the cushion project I’ve felt a little lost to what to do, it was suc...

My Big (and Crazy) Fabric Scrap Project
Hello, how about that overdue post about fabric scraps today? I know I’ve been hinting at it and that’s not very nice. But I did actually manage a photo session just before going off on holiday last month. Only bad with that is I’ve done a lot more since th...

Communication
I thought it was time for another post about life with a hearing impaired child and what we do to make everyday life easier for Freja and ourselves. (No ranting about hats, promise!) We quite often get the question if Freja will ever speak or if we use sign...
