Varme futter/slippers

Ikke blot i vintertiden, men hele året nyder efterhånden mange godt af mine filtede hjemmefutter, som holder fødderne lune og sørger for at man står godt fast indendøre. Til denne jul hjalp jeg mit barnebarn på 10 med at filte et par hjemmefutter til sin far, som han ønskede sig i julegave. Det var hendes ide at tilføje et rødt hjerte med et “F” for Far.

My felted slippers has become part of many people’s homes. Not only during the winter, but all year long, they keep the feet warm and comfortable. This Christmas I helped my grand daughter aged 10 felt her father a pair of slippers as a Christmas present. It was her idea to add the red heart with the “F” for Father.

Solskinsdag/Sunny day

I dag er det endelig solskin. Måske fordi et af mine børnebørn, Thor fylder 9 år.
Se også hvad haven byder på:

Finally the sun is shining; perhaps it’s because my grandson, Thor, turns 9 today. Look at what my garden has to offer:

Nisser og ugler/gnomes’n’owls

English text in Italic…

Så blev nisserne færdige 🙂 og en pæn flok ugler, både små og store , er klar til at flyve afsted.

Finally, the gnomes are done:) – and quite a lot of owls in diffferent sizes are now ready to fly out into the night.

hår og skæg

Uglerne har jeg lavet i to størrelser. De “store” er ca 6 cm og de små ca 4 cm. Næste projekt bliver mus og julegæs 🙂

The owls come i two different sizes. The “big ones” are approximately 6 centimeters and the “small ones” are 4 centimeters. My next projects are mice and Christmas-geese:)

store uglersmå ugler

Jeg har også haft lidt gang i yarnbombing igen 🙂 Dog kun i småtingsafdelingen.

I’ve also been doing a bit of yarnbombing again, but only small stuff:)

Her er det dørhåndtaget til butikken (Egen Art , Ringkøbing).

Og bag døren sidder en mus ,på dørstopperen 🙂 Den ser da meget sød ud, ik?

Here’s the doorknob to the store (Egen Art, Ringkøbing, Denmark) – and behind the door there’s a mouse on the doorstop:) – it’s cute, don’t you agree?

Ha en fortsat go dag/have a nice day,

Dette var så dagen, hvor nisserne fik farve 🙂 Det tog sin tid, men 10 stk mangler nu kun hår, skæg og ikke mindst nissehuer. Det bliver så opgaven imorgen. De ser så glade ud:)

This was the day where the gnomes were colored:) It took a while, but now I only have 10 gnomes missing their hair, beard and hats. That’ll be tomorrows assignment. They look SO happy:)

nisse-sang?

De ser da glade ud, selv uden huer. Det ser næsten ud som om de synger 🙂

They do look happy – even without their hats; they almost look like they’re singing:)

 

 

fluesvamp

Jeg synes lige i skal se, denne smukke fluesvamp. Den stod og skinnede flot ved vores sommerhus i søndags.

I just wanted to share this beautiful fly agaric with you. It was shining beautifully at our summer house this Sunday.

Ha en go dag/Have a nice day,

Nissetid/Gnome-season

English readers: Please notice that the English text is written in Italic below each section/line of Danish text to let you follow the steps:)

Torsdag d. 11 oktober blev dagen, hvor de første nisser blev startet.

October 11th was the day of the first feltet gnomes.

Først klargøres alle delene: næser, kinder, hoveder, arme osv:

First the parts are prepared (noses, cheeks, heads, arms etc) :

delmål

Så samles delene:

Then the parts are put together:

sat sammen

Det ser nu meget godt ud, men det er ikke nok. Der mangler farver. Det bliver næste skridt.

It looks pretty good, but it isn’t enough – colors are missing. That’ll be the next step.

svampetid

Men en stor interesse i yarnbombing, resulterede i fremstilling af disse svampe, og det blev til en del 🙂 . Det smittede igen af på mit ældste barnebarn (Amalie), som også begyndte at lave svampe og andet yarnbombing, mens hun var på besøg her i ferien. Men vi var også i værkstedet, for at filte. Det er noget både hun og Josephine (mit andet barnebarn)meget gerne vil. Her kommer lige et udpluk af 2 dages visit 🙂

A lot of interest in Yarnbombing resulted in a lot of mushrooms. It also rubbed off on my oldest granddaughter (Amalie), who then stated making these mushrooms and other kinds of Yarnbombing, while visiting during the Autumn holiday. However, we also went to the workshop for some felting. Felting is something that both she and Josephine (my other granddaughter) enjoys doing. Here’s a small selection of Amalie’s two-day visit:
