What I won and what I made

I was so lucky to win Barnlil's give away yesterday, a Themis mobile by Artecnica

Take a look at it, isn't it a beauty? 
I am really looking forward to next week, when it will be hanging in my living room... can't wait! 

Two or three weeks ago I made these fine crochet balls. I was quite happy with the result and making them was easy and fun.
Still, I couldn't decide how I wanted to use them.
I had numerous ideas in mind, but none of them really convinced me and quite honestly I really liked the way they looked on my Kaleido tray! ;)

In the meanwhile though, I bought some wooden spheres at the local Søstrene Grene and... ta-daaaa:

Two of those spheres became this fine ornament!

(You can find the Perfect Sphere pattern here, it's free and comes in 10 different sizes)

What I'm doing...

Tristan started at the new day care in january but still it is quite hard for him and he hasn't adjust to the new place yet, sigh! That is why he's at home a little more often and yes, he keeps me busy! (Love it!)

I've started various small projects and a big one, which is really kind of a tricky one... hmm...

Anyway here's what I am doing right now:

I fell in love with a mobile I've found on the internet and I'd love to see it in my children's room soon

I want to make 2 or 3 of these as well (free pattern here)

I started my first one yesterday evening, but had to frog it as I wasn't quite happy with that. I'm going to start a new one as soon as I finish my SECRET project (mwahahaha!) 
Here it is 
or not! Haha!
Well, the picture is in black and white because even the colour is quite revealing! Anyway, it is a gift for a loved one and will soon be revealed, until then, I'm sworn to full secrecy! 

Then there's this
and ARGH! 
I've been fiddling around with this one a lot lately... but I never seem to get it quite right. 
It is meant to become a new cushion for my sofa, inspired by this (gorgeous) ones
and all the triangles are ready (thanks Karen Elisabeth for the pattern!). 
I have big problems with sewing them together though as the result is always wavy and bulgy... I'll probably try to finish this side, damp it and put it to shape and see what happens! Sigh!
