Cute as a button giftbox

I've been feeling very bad for the last couple of days so this will be a quick post. I want to show you my first project for the pixiecottage. The theme was "buttons" and I thought I was quite clever.

The box is made from scratch, I'll make a tutorial when I feel better. Text is downloaded from

Needleholder and cookies

Hi and welcome back to my blog. Today I've been making my first project for the pixie cottage. I can't show it to you yet so I thought I'd show you one of the other things I've finished earlier.

It's a holder for needles or brooches. I really needed one since I've been keeping my needles in different places in old shoulderpads. This way I can keep them is style!

Don't you just love the fabrics?

And just to entice you more, here's what I baked yesterday and ate basically the whole day today. It's a new reciepy from a book I got at a sale at the supermarket. It's baked on one of those oventrays with a higher edge. I made half a portion as the trays are quite big. Didn't want to waste that much ingredients in case it was blah. It wasn't :D It's a bit chewy and sirapy. The chewy part is oatmeal which I really love in cookies. Wish I could invite you over!
