Sunday sewing; wise owl shoulder bags

Thanks for the tag Meg! Perfect for this snowy Sunday - it has snowed half a meter today, our car is stuck in the driveway and we´re enjoying a lazy day at home cooking, studying, sewing and blogging!

Three things you wish for (just for you):
A happy, long life.
To “own” a shop (not rent or lease).
Three things you would do to/for you if there was no one to judge you (or if you had the guts.)
Dye my hair blond or red.
Keep chickens in my backyard and not have to buy eggs.
Start an Etsy shop.
Three bad habits you have.
Using food as a reward.
Leaving “uncreative” things like paying bills, making important phone calls etc. to the last minute.
Never putting keys, glasses etc. in the same place so I can find them easier and not have to freak out shouting “who´s seen my keys/glasses” before I walk out the door.
Three insecurities you feel:
Not being good enough ; appearance
; home
;as a mother
Three talents/skills you wish you had:
Cabinet maker skills to build furniture
Baking like a pro - bread, bread rolls and cakes
Tiling – mosaics are easier because they don´t have to be perfect but I mean straight, row after row tiling.
Three things you would do if you had more time:
Drive to Italy more often (it takes 4 hours to drive to the beautiful city of Triest for eg.)
Help school children with their english (atleast one other mother approaches me every week about this).
Do even more of the things I love doing now (going on adventures with Erich and the children, crafting and sewing, weekends away).
Three things you would do if you had enough money:
Buy an apartment in Italy and spend a few months every summer there.
Go on a holiday around Sweden (I want this even more since I´ve been reading Marie´s blog)
Spend the Christmas holidays in Australia every 2 years.
Three things that bring you peace and relaxation:
Walking through the front door after a long day at work and hearing my children upstairs.
A long soak in the bathtub.
A new home decorating magazine to read and look through.
Three things that spark your creativity:
Other blogs.
Fabric stores.
Three people I´m tagging:
Laini, Alexandra, Liz Elayne

I really enjoyed reading your answers! You are so creative and interesting. All of your answers show what an adventuresome soul you are deep down, and also how tied you are to your family. I'm looking forward to meeting those kids someday!! (P.S. I can't believe how close you are to Italy - SO SO jealous!!!)

Still snowed in? I wish we'd get snowed in, but it's definitely not going to happen this year. Two years ago we got "iced in" for a week -- a perfectly horrible alignment of conditions: a freezing rain topping off a sleety snow, and the streets turned ice-rink slink and stayed that way. Since we didn't have to go anywhere, it was glorious. We baked apple pie and roasted a turkey and stayed in! Hope you enjoyed it too! I love your owl purses. So clever! And I recognize the same orange fabric you used on my bag! Also loved your answers, and thanks for he tag. It'll be my next entry.

Oh...I am catching up on more reading and saw your tag. You can check out my answers on my March 1st post (navylane had tagged me in Feb). One of mine was to have red hair too and I kind of have red hair as of this afternoon! I love your answers! You should start an etsy shop!!! And I love that walking in the door and hearing your children brings peace into your life. beautiful. Also, i can so relate to the "where are my keys! i am running so late, i can't find my sunglasses/glasses" habit. Happens to me whenever I have to be somewhere on time.
