summer...and back to work

Hi, everyone! Hope you are well, January has already gone, and we are close to mid February, OMG time flies and flies! I´m back at work in the studio with the sewing machine finally repaired woo-hoo! Really happy to be back, but I can also see that my time off have been so good... I didn´t realise I was really needing a rest after the holiday season in my shop :-) So, the machine incident had it´s positive side too because now I´m back so fresh and with new strenght and ideas. There are some new bags in my shop, and I´m working on some more too, I hope they will be in my shop in march. 
Here you have some pictures from the past month that we´ve gone to the beach a couple of times, the new bags in my shop, and new beanies at KnittingWinters, my mom´s shop.

christmas wishes

Hi, Friends! Christmas is only three weeks away! So this weekend is the best one to write Christmas wishes greeting friends and family. I love writting my greeting cards, because I´m really thinking on what I truly wish for the people I love...and for the whole world! Things like peace on earth, love, and joy to the world ... are things that can seem utopical sometimes,  but writting them on a note to somebody is a great chance to remeber they are so real and they really matter. It always happens to me in this season that I truly want to remember that saying of "the more important things in life are not things". 
Well Friends, I better leave you thinking about your Christmas wishes before I become even more philosophical, he he. Here you can see some greeting cards I have found on Etsy and I really like!
Hope you enjoy the weekend!! And also hope you find a moment to write down your greetings!

You can see them better by clicking on the name of each shop :)

queuing to be sewn

Hi! I´ve been making some order yesterday and now I have this fabrics where I can see them. I want to sew them as soon as I have the chance (and before summer ends here!). Usually when I have a fabric I don´t wait to sew it, but this time was different because we moved in July from north summer to south they are still waiting :-)
Do you have crafts in a queue? 
Xo, have a nice day! 

1. Blue cotton fabric with white butterflies, I bought it in Buenos Aires, while visiting family. 
2, 3. Blue and white stripes and the one from the right, I bought them in Madrid, in Rives y Casals. If you ever go to Madrid, that shop is amazing for sewing lovers. You can visit their web page by clicking here
4, 5. Multicolor triangles, and blue with white flowers, I´ve bought them on Etsy, in the shop "The Delhi Store". The quality is amazing, I´ve washed them to avoid size changes after sewing and they did not loose a even bit of color. You can visit that shop by clicking here.
6. Beige background with flowers. Is a birthday gift from my mother, she bought it on Etsy too, in the shop "SonSu". Love the quality and texture of this fabric. You can visit this shop by clicking here
7. The one on the right in vertical position is a dress I have to change a bit.

gifts from Latin America

Hi Folks! 
Yesterday I´ve listed in the shop the bag you can see in the picture in burgundy and off white...and then I realised I definitely want one for my personal use next winter! I would love to combine it with my "never stop wearing" burgundy shoes (Camper) and beige wool jacket (Benetton). People says is better having accessories in neutral colors, to be able to combine them sounds reasonable! But in my case, when I have something I like, I combine it with everything for years and becomes my "never stop wearing" :-)
Here you can see some stuff I found on Etsy, from other Latin American shops...a bit for the home, a bit for wearing, it all can perfectly combine with my bag! They can also be that perfect gift you are looking for this Christmas, don´t you think? 
You can see them better by clicking on the name of the shop, take a look and enjoy! 
Have a nice day :-)

Incredible but true, December is here! 
Last week literally went away without notice. Time should settle down a bit! December should be a good moment to settle down, because of Christmas and the end of another year. Crazy month plenty of things to do, but really deserves to be apreciated! Hope you enjoy this great month!

5. last week I decided I needed a pic of me being serious for my profile. I wanted to look more professional, ha! I definitely couldn´t. But has to be said that the photographer laughed more than me!

a little up date

Hi Friends!! Happy Monday and new week! Hope you´ve had a great weekend. Last week has been pretty busy here, sewing and more sewing! I´m making new items for the shop that hope I´ll be listing soon, and also sewing some orders to be shipped. I have many new ideas for new bags... I would like to add some backpacks to the shop and also some smaller bags. 
My sewing machine is behaving well, but is making some strange noises :( I think I´m forcing it a bit...too much work for a tiny machine...may be after Christmas I can invest in another one bigger and sturdier. 
Here you can see a few snaps from work last week and a bit more just around here.  
Have a nice week! xo!

2. my favorite corner in the house is not a this chair that belonged to my husband grandma. there is where I knit when I knit.

home sweet home

Hi Friends! Hope you are ok! I´ve been away this week, visiting my family in Argentina. We´ve had great family time, with spring days, blue skies and flowers everywhere. Feeling home there, and also here now that I´m back in Chile.  
Here I give you some "home feeling" pictures, and one I´ve made while we were flying over The Andes. It was such an amazing view that it´s almost a crime showing that pic here, it doesn´t illustrate almost anything, nature can be just amazing! 
I´ve used my cinnamon brown waxed canvas tote for the trip, and it worked great:  so comfortable to use, really roomy and sturdy! 
Hope you have a great weekend!

come in, we´re open!

Hi, Friends! My shop is opened again! After being three months and a half closed because of our moving, now is reopened here from Santiago. 
The shop celebrated one year yesterday, so I´m launching a "Free shipping party" because of this first anniversary. The products that joined the party are the pouches, the pillow cases and the fabric baskets. All other products still have their normal shipping price. 
There are some products missing in the shop by the moment, because I´m still updating them for the materials I can get here in my new city. 
Thank you so much for your support during the past year, I couldn´t be working on this and trying to make it grow if you weren't here, so thanks a lot! 

1. the studio, a year ago in Madrid
2. my new studio here in Santiago
3. thank you so much for this first year! :-)

finding treasures

So many treasures are seeing the light again while I unpack. These are a couple of them, memories from other crafts I used to do.
