My grandmother gave me her sewing machine. I think it's more than 40 years old but it still works. I read the instructions and tried if it still works and it did. So I started searching the internet for patterns of handbags. I found a very nice one at

The next day I went to the shop and bought some nice fabrics and started sewing. This is how it turned out. What do you think about it????

I'm really into sewing right now so I already bought some new fabrics for another bag. If any of you have some nice patterns of websites with patterns of handbags, please let me know!! You would make me sooooooooooooooo happy.
Enjoy the weekend!
love, Isolde

New challenge

Hi everyone,
Here I am again. I'm enjoying very hot summer weather here in Belgium. I love it a lot but the only negative thing about it is that I'm not in the mood for scrapping. I have tons of ideas but I can't create. Frustrating!!!

I forced myself to scrap wednesday evening and I had so much fun. I made a layout for the new challenge at

This week you can win 2 digis of your choice from this sponsor:

I hope you all play along with us and use this sketch for this week. Our talented member Paola designed this sketch.
This is what I did with the sketch.

So, grap your stuff and create a layout with this wonderful sketch. Leave a link at the website of SSS and maybe you'll win!

Still alive

I'm so sorry for not posting the past weeks. Life has been busy around here. Two days ago was the last schoolday before summer holidays. It was superbusy with meetings with the parents and getting all the stuff ready for the end of the schoolyear. I'm having 2 months summer holidays right now but that doesn't mean that I don't have to work. Yesterday and today I need to visit the parents of the kids that will be in my class next year. I want to work a bit ahead for next year too.

All of this nees to be done in very hot weather. We will have 37°C today. It's too hot to sit outside.
