Works in progress

Dear all,

first of all I wanted to thank you for your constant support and encouraging words. It's really joyful to know that, no matter how many months I've spent away from blogland, my readers are still interested to hear what I've been up to. Please forgive me if I haven't left any comments on your blogs yet, but I've fallen a bit behind with what everyone else has been up to, and it's going to take me a while to make up for it. Apologies :)
And now, as promised, please let me show you what I've been up to recently!

Someone might remember I was trying to build a florist's shop; well, I've finally made it! It's inspired by greenhouses and conservatories, and the idea is to make ALOT of plants to hang off the balcony and partially cover it. In the middle of the floor there will be plenty of shelves on which of course you'll find pots, vases, flowers, gardening tools and so on. But I wonder how long it'll take me to accomplish all this!

And then of course I couldn't ignore my haberdashery. I've collected the raw furniture that will go into that shop, but I haven't started decorating it yet. What I've made though is a dozen of teeny tiny boxes, each and everyone with an assortment of embroidery threads in it. Yes, believe my word, there's tiny reels in EACH box. Just forgive me if I didn't open all the boxes to show you all my crazy work :)

I hope you've enjoyed seeing what I've been up to lately, and I promise I'll be back soon with more things to show you xxx

  1. The structure you've built to house your florist shop is amazing...definitely has the feel of a greenhouse with the glassed in roof. Very original and well done work! Making all those boxes full of tiny reels of thread is also quite an accomplishment. Making more than one of something fiddly is always a challenge for me, and always seems to take more time than I want it to!

    Lovely update, and I will be very interested to see where your two projects go to next!

  2. What a wonderful room, looking forward to see more!
    Love, Susanne
