bloglove to be precise
is what Maureen gave me

thank you my dear

she is a wonderful lady
with fingers that type mindful, thoughtful posts
the same fingers that happen to make beautiful cushions

go check out Daydream Living
and enjoy her blog

I am passing Blog Love on to Vanessa
her Coco Rose Textiles is so colorful, lovely and beautiful
I figure most of you already know her, if not you should definately go and visit

because Maureen loves neutral colors
I decided the timing is great to show you my new WIP
a supersquare knitted blanket ~ the squares measure about 35 square cm each and there will be 24 of them

made of pure wool ~ Swedish Lovikka yarn
it is very very warm, sooo lovely and cozy

and the blossom I got today
is for all of you ~ my dear readers who make me smile every day

wishing you a warm, relaxing, flowerful weekend!

  6. Hi Maaike!
    Lady, me? Hahaha, super leuk om te lezen dankjewel! Enne, m'n mond viel een beetje stil, gebeurt niet vaak, je bent al zo ver! Ik ben nog aan het nadenken welke pen... Ik ga denk ik ook grijs erbij doen. We gaan van de zomer met een camper weg, dus genoeg tijd om onderweg te starten, toch? Ik vind de link naar die ander blog ook leuk, ben even snel geweest, ga later terug want het ziet er leuk uit, ook zo creatief met wol. Anyhoo.... alvast een goed weekend!

  15. I'm new here, via Coco Rose, and what a lovely, lovely visit I've had :-). Beautiful, simple everyday things in life are expressed wonderfully here. Have a nice rest of your weekend :-)

  16. Hi, Just discovered your blog via Coco Rose. Like your new blanket - very simple (just the way I like it ;) ) but great how the little squares make up a nice pattern of blocks.

    Have a great weekend.
