Life of Pi by Yann Martel


I read this book before the birth of the little one and it was a really good read. The main subject of this story are religions. I really liked the ideas transfered in this book. It was no light read and especially the ending left me speechless for a while, but I enjoyed it nonetheless. The start was a bit slow. I waited for the tiger the whole time, but without the beginning you don't understand the rest. But I am not very patient as you know. But when the "real" story started I enjoyed the book very much.

You really should read this if you like a bit of philosophy or religion.

Baby Haul

I only wanted to buy nursing pads and what did I got? Pacifiers, socks, muslin blankets and not only one but two packages of nursing pads. I simply can't resist all the cute stuff. And did you notice that baby stuff is everywhere and everything is just too adorable?

Happy Mother's Day

Here in Germany today is Mother's Day so I wish all mothers all the best. Here are some cards I made for today:


The little one was not so thrilled when I tried to get his footprints, but I think they turned out okay. I hope the recipients will like the cards.

Oh, and if you read this, I love you Mom!

The new Ottobre Woman


I am a big fan of the Ottobre Kids magazines. Their designs are always so playful and pretty. But normally I don't like the woman issue. The clothing inside is not my style. Most of the styles are not very flattering in my opinion. But this time I fell in love with the trenchcoat on the cover and had to have this issue. And to my suprise there are also some other nice patterns in it. So maybe I will become a fan of Ottobre Woman in the future. This issue is very promising.

A new oven mitt


Because my old oven mitt looked really disgusting it was time to make new one. I found this pattern in one of the books from Cath Kidston. The sewing was a bit difficult with all the layers. My bias tape was also a bit too small. Next time I would make my own bias tape. But I had this on hand and it matched the fabric so well.

Hello again

First thank you all so much for your kind wishes. It really helped to know there are people who care.

We are back at home again and it seems that the worst is over. Monday we were at the hospital again for a final test and the results were fine. The little one is now much lighter and can enjoy breast milk again. Fortunately we were at the hospital only for two days. Otherwise I would have gone crazy.

Now I only hope the little one will have let me some time to update the blog more often. He is two months old already. The time really runs. Hope you have a nice day!
