Cute memories

Hello and welcome to the Friday's Witch! 


Oh! How long have I not written here! But during these few months I had a lot of life problems (mine and my family - mainly with my father, who is 86 years old). The problems do not go away, but I said - enough! I want to return to my daily activities and work. I also decided to return to painting - it is a huge change in my life. Today I want to show you a little bit of my life almost ten years ago. Well, my younger son left home about 8 years ago, and maybe even more, I don't remember exactly. But most of his things stayed in his room. I decided to paint this room 2 years ago, but you know how it is: if you ask your husband to paint the walls, you don't have to remind him every six months for 10 years, right? When he said he would do it, he would eventually do it. Taking advantage of the opportunity that my son came to visit us, I asked him to look at his belongings and decide what to leave behind and what to get rid of. Here's what I found in the box between the pile of books! These are my first Santa socks! I used decorative stitch on my first ultra modern electronic sewing machine. It was Janome Memory Craft 8900 and I called it "Niunia". Cats persistently wanted to climb the Christmas tree, which was standing on the floor, so the tree had to hang on the wall. This Christmas tree is an idea and execution of my younger son. Cats are already old, so for several years we have had a traditional Christmas tree - standing on the floor. Below are some photos of my first sewn socks according to my own idea.

5soks2013I want to tell you that I made this decoration especially for them. The older son Dorian was then 26 years old and the younger 20 years old. In Poland, we do not have a tradition of treating Saint Nicholas with cookies and milk. I liked this tradition from English countries very much and that's why I decided to bake cookies and leave the milk and give Santa Claus. And since my boys were no longer young children - that's okay! They were having fun. 


And I think these are some of my first mug rugs. You can also see decorative stitches from my Niunia on them.
Niunia was so smart - she even had an alphabet to sew on.

1soks2013 These socks have two holes and the pillow has sewn buttons. Since the socks are made of one layer of regular cotton, they are very floppy. Pinned to the pillow, they are stable and do not lose their shape. the photos are not of good quality because I downloaded them from my old fb profile. Traditionally, I bake a lot of gingerbread cookies. 


And my delicious birthday cake.


I still have an attic to tidy up. I wonder what treasures I can find there ;) :D  


I hope you like my new page and my  work :D I'd be glad if you leave a comment. Have a great day Loves! Margaret
