Finally, today I had time to go to post office and get it! Straight from Singapore until Eindhoven, a present for P. (from me!).  Did I already said that I love  things we forget ?

This weekend, we have to frame it!

Enjoy the rest of the week!

As usual, the days around Christmas are crazy. This time was not an exception, I couldn’t spend the time that would like with my family and ll my friends, but somehow I managed to see all of them. Tomorrow we are going to Barcelona and enjoy a couple of days until new year.

Here are some of the presents that I made for christmas – pumpkin and nuts jam, butter cookies and lavender bags. They were a success!

2010 was a great year, and I wish everybody a wonderful 2011!

Christmas is almost here, and I’m preparing some presents, but I will not show it for now. We’ll travel to Lisbon this saturday, I’m really excited.

Cooking is one of my favorites things in the world, I really love to cook and have friends around the table. Of course, on Christmas all the food is even better, because everything tends to be magic and made with (more) love. So today, I’ll show some of my favorite food blogs:

In the mood for food

Jasmine Tea


Both are magic, enjoy it!

Have a nice week!



I’ve been away, but it does not mean that I lost my interested, I’m just too busy with other things in life.Sometimes, it happens!

I’ll try to be more present, even if it’s not completely related with sewing and crafts, I’ll try to share things, blogs, ideas, details of what inspires my daily life. I believe that  small things make a huge difference!

To start:

Things we forget, it’s a simple but brilliant blog with post-it messages that sometimes we tend to forget.

Have a nice Sunday!

diaper bag


It has been a long while since I came here for the last time. I’ve been busy, the days seem to have less than 24h, but life has been good. Winter is already around here, snow started yesterday and my garden is naked. I’ve been enjoying my work a lot, I’ve been learning to design so many other things  and using new tools – interaction design is awesome!

But I’ve been  missing sewing so much, that’s why I accepted this order from Susana. This is a diaper bag for her baby boy who soon will arrive.

She gave me all the freedom to choose fabrics, I love to work like this!  Just grabbing some fabrics, playing with colours, imagining the shapes and finding my way while I’m creating…it’s so inspiring.

I decided to use some elastic to hold the baby bottles.

And, she also asked for a baby document purse.

Susana, I hope you enjoy it!


cozy weekends


The cold days already arrived, and I’m trying to adjust (again) to these rainy days! The weekends  have been good, but most of the times with indoor activities. I did some marmalade, this always reminds me my childhood endless summers – after two weeks in my grandmother and family farm, we would return to Lisbon, with small hearts because the holidays were ending, but with car full of quinces and other precious things. And then, I remember to see everybody in the kitchen preparing and doing marmalade…oohhh, sweet memories!!

Have a nice weekend!
