Small projects


When I am travelling or when I am meeting friends, I like to have a small project... I take this with me.... inside .....


I am making a little project of a pattern from a miniquilt of I, i already had the pattern for more then a year (or perhaps even 2) but it is nice and small ....


and this time i am making a little small quilt, I also love embroidery, so my projects can also be an embroidery piece or some thing to knit.


Beautiful weather again for a nice walk under the trees.


This is what I made for M, for her wedding, a mistletoe in heart shape... I found that pattern long long time ago, and sever it for a good day, this summer I started on it, because her wedding was in december....

Crochet, quilt and valentine


At attic24 I saw this beautiful poncho for the first time.... but I couldn't find the pattern... now I know it was still not on the market in the netherlands...


But now in "haken enxo" it was so I run to the wool shop to get started immediately... and this is the result so far... it was a little bit late yesterday so the picture is not to clear i will make an other one soon...


 With valentine's day we went to a small cafe and had a delicious cafe a vitello tone to on bread and some  'yammie' brownies with caramel, such a lovely threat



at the moment we have some beautiful cold, (but not to cold)  winter weather with a heavenly blue sky....... so nice for a walk outside and enjoying a nice warm cup of coffee after ...


 But of course I need to be quilting as well... I almost finished the top of my youngest... pictures coming soon, but of course I want to make a nice new quilt for my oldest as well... some bright colours mammie she asked... well her are a few of the fabrics i choose...
