Meet my new husband!

Are you shock? New husband? But this is how it began. In the Activity center where I work, I try to make something out of what the elderly manage to knit. I then sewed together knitted squares of different colors,  knitted  a head, sewed  hair of yarn  and put eyes, nose and mouth on it. Then an elderly saw what I made and ask me if I made myself a new husband. I answered her " yes." That is why a new husband for me was born. The elderly gave him a name which is " Kalle Lazarus". So say hello to my new husband:) But, this new husband of mine belongs to the activity center. The elderly said that we can use my husband as a prize for a lottery that we used to have at work. So I hope I win this time:) By the way, an elderly knitted the scarf for my husband.

                                                    Kalle Lazarus

Anyway, one day I was out for a walk with an elderly and we went to a shopping mall. We found  a lot of interesting things as you can see.

Meet the the hens and the chickens!

Actually, these are not for sale. They are only models. If one is interested, the shop sells materials and instructions how to do these figures.

Guess what? I found these couple very interesting.  Meet Mr. and Ms. Santa


I thought of my mother-in-law who is very fond of these creatures, so I bought materials for Ms. 
Santa. I thought that I can try to make this one as a gift to the mother of my husband for Christmas. Since I don't know how long it will take me to knit Ms. Santa, I started at once so that it would be finished before Christmas.

So these  are  some of the different parts before I crotheted the sweater and the laces. After that I washed the pieces in the washing machine so that it would shrink according to the instruction.


After a week, I have now a finished product:)  My knitted Ms. Santa is a litlle bit chubby than the original, but I was satisfied with what I did. I hope my mother-in-law will like it.


Anyway, I was so inspired making stuff toys, so I made some more. Meet my doggies.

I crocheted the different parts before I sewed them together.


So this is Pluto

This is Estella. The elderly gave them the names:)


Mother and the puppy.


Right now, I am making a kangaroo. You will meet her soon:)



Saying goodbye with Ten Funny Food Facts - To Give You Fodder For Thought

1) Apple is made of 25% air, that is why they float.

2) Avocado has the highest protein and oil content of all fruits.

3) Carrots were originally purple in colour, changing in the 17th Century to orange with newer varieties.

4) Celery requires more calories to eat and digest than it contains.

5) Cherries are a member of the rose family.

6) Corn always has an even number of ears. It only makes up about 8% of the weight in a box of corn flakes.

7) Honey is the only edible food for humans that will never go bad.

8) Lemons contain more sugar than strawberries.

9) Peanuts are one of the ingredients in dynamite.

10) Pear is a fruit that ripens from the inside out.

Did you know that during a lifetime the average person eats about 35 tonnes of food.
