To a little baby girl 😊🧡

Hi ❣ It’s so nice to see you,- like always 😊 I hope all is fine with you 🧡

This weekend I visited a tiny, very new and so incredibly sweet little baby girl 🍼🧡. She is so beautiful 🥰. And of course I visited her mammi too. Her mammi is my great (Norwegian) friend, Line 😊. And it was so good to see them both 🥰. All is fine with the newborn and the mammi, and the daddy as well 😊.

And I’m the first one, except from the mammi and daddy, and of course the nurses and doctors, to see, meet and hold this little wonderful baby girl 🥰. I feel a bit honored over that, I need to admit that 🧡. And I’m really looking forward to get to know this little sweetheart 🥰.

I started to knit a baby blanket to the baby, I think in the middle of May, and I really wanted to be finish with the blanket as well as give it to Line before the baby was born. But I was not sure if I would manage it inbetween moving, jobs, glass bottles painting ( totally 27 🎨) ,and a bit more too 😅. But I did,- the blanket is finish, and Line got it just some days before her and her boyfriend’s baby was born 😊.

The blanket is knit with 100 % cotton so it’s nice and soft for the little baby girl. Maybe a bit to warm to use inside at the moment, or even outside too. Because we have some warm summer days here in Spain at the moment 🌞.

The knitted baby blanket- knit by me 🧶😊

I have started on some baby clothes too to this little baby girl. But in size 3 to 6 months, and 6 to 9 months. It’s a bit to warm for some knit clothes now, but there will be a colder Autumn and a Winter when soft and warm clothes are good to have 🧶.

And it is so strange to knit baby clothes. They are so tiny and small, and it goes so fast to knit them too, then to knit to adults. I’m actually finish with a jacket and a couple of trousers already to this little sweetheart 🧶🧡. But the baby will get them a bit later together with something more clothes. She doesn’t need knitted clothes like that at the moment, and it can be good to have some “bigger” clothes to choose between when the Autumn and winter is coming.

I wish you a great day or evening wherever in the world you are 🧡. Thank you so much for using your time and dropping by my blog today 🧡

See you soon 😊

The finish baby blanket knit in 100 % cotton 🧶. I actually forgot to write down the size before Igave the blanket to Line, but it’s more then big enough for the baby for many months 😊.

I didn’t thought I was going to manage finish the baby blanket before the baby to one of my great friend was born,- but I actually did 😊🧶. And this weekend I was so incredibly lucky to meet this little baby girl and her mammi too 🥰.

I have knitted a Spring dress to myself 🌞🧶👗

Hi ❣ It’s so nice to see you,- like always 😊 I hope all is fine with you 🧡

January and February was a bit quite months in my different freelance work, both in the writing area as well as on the chat line. So when I was waiting for some work to do, some money to earn I made, actually knit, myself a dress for the Easter and the Spring 🥀.

Finish with my dress for the Easter and the Spring 😊

My knitted dress could probably been a bit longer, but I now can choose to use it as a short dress or a long jumper.

My knitted dress from front, behind and also the pattern I have used.

The pattern I have used is very simple. I just used it in away to create my dress a bit more colourful.

It’s maybe a bit to short to use for a woman in age 48? Some will probably think so, other will probably don’t give it to many thoughts at all 😊. For me it’s not a problem that it’s a bit short, I like it that way.

And the yarn I have used will actually not crawl in the wash, but stretch.  Not all yarns in Spain are of the same quality, and this yarn I have knitted with is 100% acrylic.  My experience with 100% acrylic is that it expands a little and stretches a little after being washed in a washing machine. 

I have knitted three different tights (one black, one dark gray and one light gray) to myself too, also which I use in my home office.  It’s good to wear comfortable and warm clothes in the winter, I think.  And they have become a little more stretchy after a few laps in the washing machine too.

I like to knit and create, to be creative and create something useful in one or another way. But to be honest,- I really hope there will be a bit more work to do in my online freelance work soon,- even I’m not “wasting” my time with not doing nothing when I’m waiting for more to do 🎨🧶.

Anyway,- I know there is some different busy days in front of me the next weeks, not just work, but other things and stuffs that’s need to be taken care of.

I’m grateful for having a creative mind, and the possibility for create different things 💚. Special during a time as we live in now at days, and it also “takes my mind” a bit away from negative thoughts to be creative and create. I presage that. I know many people are struggling now at days with heavy thoughts and the difficult time we live in. Because it is a difficult time in one or another way for many people around us- sometimes we forget that and think it’s just we that have a difficult time- but it’s not 🧡.

I hope your days in one or another way it’s easy, and I hope you can be able to focus in just a tiny little positive thing in your day or life when the days feels a bit difficult. I really know it’s not easy to do when it all feels “cold and black”- but I hope you will manage it 💛.

I wish you a great day or evening wherever in the world you are 🧡 Thank you so much for using your time and dropping by my blog today 🧡

See you soon 😊

It’s not to bad this dress, and it’s very soft and comfortable to wear too 😊

When I has been waiting for some work to do in my freelance online work I have knit and created me a Easter and Spring dress 😊. I’m very grateful for having a creative mind so I manage to do something out of my “waiting- time” during this a bit now and then challenging “corona- time” 🧶🎨. To create takes my mind away from negative thoughts- and I like that, change my focus into something positive 😊💚.

Look at this “sweetie pie” 🐶 🥰

Hi ❣ It’s so nice to see you,- like always 😊 I hope all is fine with you 🧡

I haven’t dressed up many dogs in my life, just my son’s dog, Zorro. And I haven’t knit very much to any dogs either, except from a couple of scarfs to Zorro 😊.

My son wanted his dog to have similar scarfs as himself, and of course, if I can manage to fulfill my son’s wish (as well as my two other children’s wishes) I try to do my best to meet his wishes 💙.

I need to admit that I haven’t actually totally understood this special connection dog- owners have with their dog until my son brought Zorro into our family 🐕. At the same time as I do understand people who have animals and their love for their animals.

My kids had have different kinds of animals when they grew up. But at the same time I haven’t felt that an animal was a part of the family in the same way like I feel my children are part of my family ❤. Do you understand what I mean?

I understand people has strong feelings for their dog or cat or any other kind of animal, but it’s actually not before Zorro “entred” into my life the I really understood why people look at their dogs as a family- member 😊. And I also do understand why my oldest son wanted a couple of similar scarfs to his dog, because his dog is a part of his family, and Zorro is not just a part of his family, but also one of his best friends too 🐕.

I have friends that have dogs, dogs that I actually have been “dog- sitting”, looked after and taking care of when my friends needed some help for that. But I have never had any special strong and warm feelings for their dogs. I have just accepted and respected that they have this feelings for their dogs, and took as good care I could for the dog with no good or bad feelings in my heart. Just taking care of 🐕.

It’s sounds probably a bit cold and frezy, but I have probably just been very neutral in my heart for the animals 💛. Like I have mention before,- some people are animal- persons and some people are people- persons.

I’m a people- person, nothing worse than that. And I’m probably never going to get my own dog either, but as we all know,- you should never say never 😊. But I feel I’m very finish to have any kind of any responsibility for anyone else then myself for a while now 😊. Not any people, not any animals, not even a tiny little goldfish to take care of 🐠. I just want to have the responsibility for just me,- and I think that would be more then enough for me for a while too 😅. But it’s good not all and everyone is like me 😊. And one thing is for sure,- if you get a dog you should really take good care of it, love it and raise it. And I’m not there in my life now. But luckey many other people are 🥰.

One of my daughter’s closest friends has a tiny little dog, and the dog’s name is Zelda , she is a female 🐶. I did knit a scarf, hat and elf- socks to my daughter’s friend because she deserved a tiny little “attention”, and of course I needed to knit something to Zelda as well then 😊. So I knitted a tiny little blanket and a scarf in similar colours, style and fashion as I knit to my daughter’s friend 🧶.

Zelda with her knit scarf and blanket 🧶🐶

Look at her, so incredibly sweet. She looks a bit like a little diva or a queen 👸. And I also think her “mam”, my daughter’s friend, treats her a bit like a tiny little princess now and then too 👸🐶. Something that it’s natural because she is a part of my daughter’s friend’s family 😊.

Well,- I’m actually starting to get the tiny “swing” of knitting dog- scarf and blankets to dogs now 🧶So maybe I should try to knit some dog- clothes too? I need to think a bit about that one 😊. Maybe I should try to knit some baby- clothes first? A friend of mine is expecting a baby during this summer and I’m going to knit some baby- clothes to her baby 😊. But it’s many years since I have been knitting baby- clothes so I should probably try to do some of them before I starts on a “dog- clothes” project 😊. What do you think?

I wish you a great day or evening wherever in the world you are 🧡 Thank you so much for using your time and dropping by my blog today 🧡

See you soon 😊

Look at this little princess Zelda on her knit blanket and with her knit scarf 😊.

I’m starting to understand more and more this family- connection a dog- owner has to his or her’s dog 😊,- and also why maybe some similar “outfits” is fun to use together with the dog 🐶. So therefore I have knit a tiny little dog- scarf and a blanket to this little “sweetie pie”, and also something similar to the owner of this “sweetie pie” 🥰.

Look at those two handsome fellows 💙🐕🧣

Hi ❣ It’s so nice to see you,- like always 😊 I hope all is fine with you 🧡

Last year I did knit a scarf to my oldest son that he really enjoyed and was very happy for, but unfortunately, he did loose it somewhere during the moving process last Spring, and he did felt a bit sad over that🧣.

So when I was waiting for my internet to be up and running again I did knit two scarfs to him. Just in case he lost one again 😊. But he also wanted a similar to his dog, Zorro. So they have similar scarfs, like two handsome fellows 😊.

Zorro with one of his fancy, knit and handmade “one of a kind” scarf 🧣

And look at Zorro, he actually looks a bit proud on this photo 😊. So sweet with his own scarf 🧣. I think he like it a bit.

And it’s actually the first time I have knit “clothes” to a dog, but maybe it will be more knitted dog clothes in the future by me? I’m not sure yet, but it can happen 🧶🐕.

My oldest son, Marius and his dog Zorro with fancy similar scarfs 🧣

They look pretty cool together 🥰. But of course I think that,- I’m his very proud mammi …… and probably “grandma” to Zorro then too 💙.

The 2 different kinds of scarfs I knit to my oldest son and his dog to 🧣🧶

My son has packed down the second scarf I knitted for him and Zorro.  It is a little thicker and warmer than the dark violet scarf.  And they’re on the move again.  In a month and two they will move a little closer to where my daughter and I live, and also his friends.

He really enjoys living in the mountains, but its fare away from people, and during all this restrictions time we are living in and with, it’s a bit difficult to live so fare away from people.

I’m looking forward to get them both a bit closer, and hopefully the restrictions will “easy” up a bit in a couple of weeks so we can meet up again too 💙. And who knows,- maybe there will be knit some more dog- clothes too? 😊🧶

I wish you a great day or evening wherever in the world you are 🧡. Thank you so much for using your time and dropping by my blog today 🧡.

See you soon 😊.

I really like this photo of Zorro with the handmade knit scarf 🧣. He looks so fancy and proud, and it’s both his own first scarf, as well as it is the first dog- scarf I have been knit too 🧶. He and my oldest son has similar scarfs now- made by me and made by love too 🧶😊 💙.

Beautiful blue glass art to a very good friend 💙🎨

Hi ❣ It’s so nice to see you,- like always 😊 I hope all is fine with you 🧡

I’m finish with a blue glassbottle, a blue winebottle to be more correct. I got the winebottle filled up with a very nice and tasty white wine from a good friend of my. And we also did share the wine together with some great conversations 😊.

He is a very good friend and I wanted to give him something just to show how much I appreciate his friendship, and then if felt natural for me to paint and create on the winebottle we did share one evening some weeks ago. One of his favourite colours is also blue, so it felt natural to paint in different blue colours to him in a blue winebottle 🎨.

And to be honest,- I’m incredibly proud of this winebottle 🥰. It became so beautiful, in my eyes. In it’s own way it’s like “touched” by some magic 🥰. Hopefully I’m allowed to say that even it’s my own art 😊🎨.

This “creation” and the music remains me also so much about him. I like him so much, I really enjoying his company, friendship and in general his very good and happy mood, and the way he handles the life 😊.

The blue winebottle with lights in.

I have some more “orders” on painted winebottles too, and I’m a bit surprised and very happy, and a bit proud too, to be honest, that people actually likes my painted winebottles and even what to have them in their home 🥰.

I’m getting better and better to paint on the bottles too. It’s still difficult and it’s stil takes a bit time to paint on a glassbottle. But when the results became like this I need to so honest and say I’m proud and happy 🥰.

The winebottle without any lights in

I have got some neon colours also now. A gift from my daughter 🥰. It was one of my followers that gave me that idea and inspiration to try to use and paint with neon colours on some glassbottles. So I’m trying to find out how to paint and create some lovely glassbottles with neon colours as well. Thank you so much for your idea #zoewiezoe 💛. And of course I’m going to share and show you all the finish results when I’m finish with my first neon coloured glassbottles.

At the moment I’m working on some other bottles. Like I mention,- I have got some “orders” on painted winebottles 😊. And I want to be finish with them first of all. At the moment it’s my friends and family that have “ordered” some painted winebottles, so it’s going to be gifts to them from me 🎁. A gift with a touch of magic, love, joy and happiness ,- I hope 🥰.

Here you can see some parts of this blue painted winebottle,- and yes,- my friend was very happy and grateful for this gift 💙. And then I’m happy too 🥰.

I hope you will enjoy my art, and if you want to take a bit better look of what I have been doing, painting and creating you are very welcome to take a look at my Instagram account: #artbylailas 🎨.

I wish you a great day or evening wherever in the world you are 🧡. Thank you so much for using your time and dropping by my blog today 🧡.

See you soon 😊

If you want to take a better good look at my blue painted winebottle,- you will find two different movies in my text 🎨. I need to admit I’m very proud of this oil painted work of my 🥰. And it felt so great to give this to my friend. A winebottle with a tiny touch of magic 🌹.
