My creative space- the happy house

I start to weave a happy house. A house full of colors.


 Everybody can live here.
A bird,


 a boy,

 a girl,

 a queen,


 even a frog

 and a no- so- bad wolf.


 I used scraps of fabrics and my favorite gingham from the old curtain of our kitchen.

  It's a nice place to live, isn't it?

My creative space- another shawl- capelet

What is happening when you want to make a looong shawl,

you start weaving


 and then you change your mind and you decide to make something new with  this loom?
You've just make another capelet with asymmetrical design!

To make it more special I made also a nice pin for closing.
Sometimes changing your mind is not so bad...

One more challenge and a very good post at egst blog

This is my new entry for the European Street Team challenge with the theme water, that is hosted by Rita.
I made a lot of notebooks this summer but this is a special one.
The handwoven fabric of the cover is made with the colors of the sea of my island.
Poros island is full of pine trees so the sea water is not blue but something between blue and green!

You can see more more entries for this challenge at Rita's blog

You can read also a very nice post about fashion and traditional  greek costumes at EGST blog.
Thank you Amoronia!

My creative space

I would like to make a very special gift to my new niece. I made a lot of internet searching, brainstorming, drawing and finally I made my decision. You can see photos of the process but not the finished item. The only clues that I can give you :





  • handwoven fabric

  • bright colors, different textures
  • decoration and fun!
You will find more about this project  later!!!

...and more creative spaces here!

This was a busy week . I prepared two new listings for my Etsy shop, both of them made for a special theme.
The first one is Just remember spring- brooch made for the European team 's challenge.


The challenge was hosting by Petronella and the theme was leaves.

The second listing is a shawl- capelet made for the Etsy Greek Street team's challenge.
You can wear the brooch and the shawl separately or you can combine them!

Have a nice afternoon!
