A lotta Lotta

I just recently bough these wonderful books by Lotta Jansdotter
and they're so full of inspiration!
Starting from the left there's
"Simple Sewing", "Travel Style" and "Handmade project"
Inspired by one of the projects in the "Simple Sewing" book
I made this cute and very simple draft snake filled with dry lentils
to keep the chilly winter drafts away.
I used an old pair of jeans and some more
Etsuko Furuya "Echino" fabrics.
And this pretty sun hat that I took with me to Acapulco.
I used a linen/cotton canvas
and lined it with some beautiful
Nani Iro fabric.

You can purchase Lotta's Books at

...and see some pretty handmade goods inspired by Lotta

Um, okay, I have one of those books (and I love it) but now I may need two more!

Love the snake - how long will it stay a draft snake at your house? It would become a "real" snake in about 20 minutes in our house :)

The temperature inside the little cabin changed considerably with the addition of the draft really works!

Heehee...I think my boys are too old to play with a fabric snake :( boohoohoo.... I wish they didn't grow up so fast!

I love your snake. I've been thinking of making one as there is a huge draft coming under our living room door! Glad to hear it works!

Payday Accommodation Reform Act of 2009 (HR 1214 IH). This bill would evidently adapt payday loans, but chump aegis groups are opposed. In a contempo letter to U.S. Representative Luis Gutierrez, the bill's sponsor, several groups including the National Chump Law Center advance that H.R. 1214 gives Congressional allotment for single-payment loans of 780 percent APR for one anniversary or 390 percent APR for two weeks. The allowable accommodation fee absolute of fifteen cents per dollar loaned sounds reasonable, but it permits lenders to allegation $75 for a archetypal $500 loan, which is due on the afterward payday. For the boilerplate chump who takes out nine loans per year, H.R. 1214 permits lenders to aggregate $675 in accounts accuse for a $500 accommodation taken out over an eighteen weeks.payday loans
