This year was a really sunny and warm one in the Netherlands…, and although it’s November already, we are still lucky! Enjoy your day!
When a started crochet a while ago I noticed, that it’s difficult to stick to one project at a time…. 😁
There’s so much to find at blogs, websites and special forums like Ravelry….; it’s really easy to get lost in all the patterns, CAL’s and enthousiasme of other crochet lovers!
I used this technique before and love the way you can create a ‘folklore’ or ‘Scandinavian’ look by choosing specific colours! I’m making these hearts as Christmas decoration. I’m a fan of the blue and white combined with the powerful red…
With all our technology, we almost forget how nice it is to receive some real mail in the mailbox…. I love receiving letters or postcards and always order new ones from ‘Kinderpostzegels Nederland’! Last year I was totally excited with the ‘buurman & buurman’ cards; this year I wanted the ‘Paul Frank’ set. They were delivered today! 😃
A few months ago I discovered an amazing colouring book for adults…., ‘Secret Garden’ from the talented Johanna Basford.
Although this book is not made of watercolour paper I decided to use my Derwent Inktense pencils with just a little bit of water (this is something you should try once in a lifetime…, the colours get so vibrant because they ‘hide’ a little bit of ink).
When I start colouring it gives me peace and all thoughts in my head dissappear, because I need to focus on my colouring.
Always nice to get, but also to give!!! And with a little extra effort a real ‘eye candy’ ….
Origami is still a challenge for me…; certainly with smaller papers. I found these little hearts in the book ‘Origami hip en trendy’ from Cindy Ng. Not only is there a tutorial for each origami pattern, but you get also 97 sheet of printed paper to give it a try (in large and in smaller sizes)!
