  1. WOW! I am happy about the completion of your hexie blanket. I could count, but I am lazy :/ How many hexies in all??? Congrats on the wedding! I wish you both ever happiness :)

  2. WOW,WOW,WOW I love how your blanket turned out Maakie. It's simply stunning and the doggy is so sweet :0)
    The colours you have chosen are gorgeous and the joining method is perfect. I love that my mini hexagons inspired you and now you have inspired me back . I want to make my own !!

  3. You did it again!! a lovely and beautiful blanket. The dog seems to have the same opinion ;-)

  4. Your hexagon-blanket (sounds a bit like a science fiction type of blanket ;-)...) is great!!!


  5. Congratulations Maaike! Your blanket is really a pure joy :) GORGEOUS!

  6. Je deken is moooi!!! Maarrrr, ik had gewoon je trouwfoto's gemist! Unbelieveble! Jullie zien er geweldig uit! Gefeliciteerd en wow, zo gaaf om te zien!

  7. Oohhhh, wat issie gaaf geworden zeg, zeker met die witte randjes ertussen. Mooie foto's ook weer, zoals gewoonlijk ;-)

  8. Jeetje dat je daar in alle leuke hectiek nog tijd voor hebt gehad :-P
    Ziet er weer mooi uit!

  9. Your blanket looks gorgeous. It must feel strange now, the wedding is over and moving out! but think of your new exciting beginnings to your married life in Canada you must be so excited. A while ago in one of your postings you mentioned you had a new camera, your photos are always so lovely, what camera have you got? I am interested because my lovely husband wants to buy me one for my birthday!
    have a great weekend

  10. There is always so much colour in your posts, I guess that there is as much in your soul. You give a feeling of balance, serenity and joy, it is such a pleasure to visit your blog.

  11. First finished project as a married woman? It's gorgeous, very much like your parents' garden (they match perfectly). Good luck with the move, hope it goes smoothly x x

  12. Absolutely stunning. You are such an inspiration. x

    Hope you have a lovely weekend,
