Well, I am trying to make things in decoupage and I discovered that Ikea food savers (I love them) are so cute to decoupage with Christmas fabrics. I started with this flower fabric and loved the result. My kid took the pics and they're really good!!! Don't you think so? lol...
Firts of all a bit of sanding...
And then I discovered myself just admiring my Mackenzie Childs pots. I love them and I feel so lucky I ordered some before they stopped making them. Love them!!!
And this weekend also has been so good for my husband's work at home! Look at these before & after pics!

God, I made this apple pie from Bea's blog recipe and I have to say it tastes just like no other I've ever made! I used an already made crust and I think that's why I can't cut the pie in pieces; it has so much juice but I am eating it from the pan with a spoon!!!! God, it's delicious!!!! Go to her blog and try the recipe!
I like to add some banana and raisins to the apple pie and so I did with this great recipe too!

Christmas holidays are coming! Tomorrow we'll start with the advent calendars and all the magic will start! And all the chocolate!!! lol...
I am now searching for a nice Christmas tablecloth for the table. The tree skirt is my first one; I did sew it yesterday and I am not so happy with the results but will be there for the Holidays! lol...
I truly love my collection of Lladró Holidays ornaments. I have each one of the years we've been together in this house and special ones for the years when the kids were born.
I made this star with the Bernat Handicrafter Christmas yarn and I have to admit I just haaaaate it!!!! It's awful and a nightmare to work with but got 10 skeins that I have to use in anything!!! lol... And the results aren't bad fr the eyes, but awful for my fingers! The pattern is from Red Heart

And also I've been trying to make my kids dinner as fun as I can so they eat more... lol... Henry really likes it but Celita is still more on the classic way...
ANd now the crafty part of it all... A market bag I made for Elma's birthday with that lovely Ikea fabric. I love it, full of hearts!
And also I added some crochet brooches that are now so in! She bought a really cozy cardigan and I think they match it perfectly!

But then just decided to put some faux grass and a wood platform where we could enjoy our Ikea Tüllero set (it was love at first time for me!). I want to paint the set but will make it next year, maybe in bright coastal colors
I also made a cushion cover with a nautical style fabric from Ikea too.
Henry helped so much adding the marble stones
We also created a "chill-out" zone where we can rest a bit in the sun and this is the view we have from down there... lol
And now let's talk about serious things.... Yarn! lol...
I was so excited when all the yarn came that couldn't stop looking at it, lol... I got to my bed and worked in the final steps of the baby blanket I was making while admiring my new yarn colors.
This is the blanket I was finishing! I like so much how it look like! I can't tell anything else of it just in case the Mommy who's going to receive this gift reads the blog, lol... But I can tell I made it with a lovely Katia yarn called Austral (Ravelry link)
And this is the first project I made with my shine worsted yarn. It was a cushion I made for Elmita's birthday. I made it using the same flannel I used last year for her winter bedding crib set. I think it came out so cute, what do you think?
Oh, and now I am so proud to show you the beginnings of my lovely, cozy, full or memories new quilt. I made it with all my husband's old t-shirts. There are all from sweet memories of our family; some from our honeymoon trip, some from our travels, some bring us memories of our kids... Every and each one of them has a little story to tell. I think it's the sweetest project I have ever made for this family! I have all the t-shirts already sewn and just waiting for the batting and backing.
Some travel memories
This is the first layout, I made some changes but it's almost the same as here.
And well, I told you it will be a long post, lol... cause I've been baking too! Since we came back home from our holidays trip in the northern Europe, I am obsessed with apple pies and apfelstrudels! This is the pic from one I made with sour cream from a Goseberry Patch's recipe! Loved it!
Oh, and this next pic is my own (ugly as my husband says) recipe. You just need to put a spoon of olive oil in a saucepan, when it gets hot add a small can of sweet corn, and then a tuna can. Then add tomato soup or sauce and mix until it get thick, then just add 1/2 cup raisins and mozarella cheese. Just yummy!!!!
Oh, and finally my question about the crisis... How can everything get sooooo expensive when people has less money?? Guess how much this cost me..... In the packet there's only meat, not jamón serrano... lol... Well, it was 73 euros!!!! ($104) Can you imagine???? I was terrified!
