Last post in 2011.

Last days of 2011.

I just want to thank you all for any kind of connection we've had in 2011. It has been a great year for me, and I had quite a production the last weeks before Christmas. Below you see most of the pot coasters I made. I think two or three are missing here.

I also made some knittingneedle and hook holders, and they became a mistery for some of those who recieved one. I didn't include written words on how to use them and my Mum and Moster didn't understand what it was. We have had some good laughs about that later on.

They are made of very fine leather, soft as glove-leather. Originally ment to use on buttons. Inside I lined them with fabric and the knitted plaits.

I added a tapestry needle and a measure for knittingneedles. I wonder what the two of them thought it to be. I'll have to ask them some time.
Below you can see how it looks when in use. A friend of mine saw them before Christmas and she immediately said " what luxury". That was because of the softness of the leather.

I've had a nice Christmas and handyman and I are going to celebrate the new year alone. Because we want it that way. Sandra has been here for some days now but will return home tomorrow. She got her own laptop for Christmas and, I expect the question on how to make her own blog will turn up sooner or later.
Since this is my last post this year I want to wish you all a Happy new year!
Take care when using the fireworks!!


  1. Dear Laila, these gifts are truly beautiful. I love your pot holders, they're so bright and cheery. Do you sell them? Or would you want to trade?? :) The needle holders are so awesome. That would be so handy, especially when taking knitting or crochet with you on trips. What a wonderful gift.
    Happiest New Year to you, hope it is a wonderful weekend. :)

  2. I love the colorful pot coasters - I'm sure they will brighten up the day for everyone who uses one! and your knitting needle and hook holder is a great design - very simple.
    Happy New Year!

  3. Hi Laila, sorry it's taken me so long to get back to you. I'm trying to get a few projects done that have deadlines, so I feel a bit overwhelmed. I tend to put things off, I really need to change that.
    As far as the pot holders go, I love all of the colors, they're all so pretty. I would be happy to trade. Any of my pictures that you are interested in?
