I just stumbled upon Caylee Raber's site

and was very impressed by her clean and simple, yet sophisticated design.

Her work is also humanitarian,
since this softie above
is designed for children in
hospital care.

This Standing Aid
is designed for supporting
children with
limited stability.

Check her site and resume.

Long no sew!
(A flu has kept me busy lately,
but I'm up and in business again (smile).

Started slowly...
and made a pouch for my
sewing machine notions

and here is what it looks like

by the way, it took me a lot of search work
to find some of Momo's Freebird fabrics

Thanks to our Etsy friends for these
little treasures.

My KINDLE COZY didn't turn out
quite the way I wanted it to.

It fits snuggly, but it is on the short side.

The seams are crooked.

But I'm very pleased with
the free motion quilting
I managed to make.

So, all in all, a learning
experience. And as the saying goes
practice makes perfect...

so on to the next one.

My first attempt at quilting.
Not so thrilling, but I love the fabrics and
I'm sure proud of what I managed to produce.

Anyway, I will continue practising
and maybe someday
I'll get there.

Here is the little thing again,
together with some comfort knitting.

My nightstand quilt is ready.
I love the colors, but to tell
you the truth:
it is too BRIGHT for
a nightstand.

Can you imagine waking up
every morning to this sight ?!?! (hehe)

I don't know about you, but
I'm not much of a morning person.

So I decided to use it in my
working place and quilt some
more subdued colors for it in the place.

I'll keep you posted!

This little baby really tested my patience

I made it following the instructions from

Imagine knitting on needles nr. 2.5mm
and all those little pieces!
And the stitching!!!

I really admire Julie for all the
work and craftmanship she has!!

And since I'm into toys and
softies, nowadays,
I keep discovering beautiful things on the web

Check these wonderful toys

they're from

a Czech crafster.
Google will translate (very badly)
but its still very inspiring!
