Big Oops...


a few days without blogging went by, a week without blogging went by...

and here I am, with the husband, enjoying the company of family and friends in the Netherlands for a while

it is great to be back and see and hug all the lovely people again

but... it leaves me very absent here, and I am sure it will last for a little longer

~

so here is a little update of what has been going on

I finished the Miami City Blanket 

and I am working on the pattern for my shop






I also started the girl blanket order in white-grey-pink soft tones




the last craft group for this season was last week and the ladies surprised me with this beautiful cake

and one of them worked on an embroidery project, her box of colorful joy was amazing to my eyes...






I hope you are enjoying the beautiful weather and doing great out there !

~

I am off to more family and more friends,

and will see you here in a while again - probably somewhere late next week

hugs

  5. Een hele fijne tijd in (ons) Nederland! Geniet ervan. Wat een leuk patroon weer, die ga ik zeker maken. Ik heb het miami beach-dekentje inmiddels klaar, het is een supermooi dekentje geworden, heerlijk.
    De combinatie die je nu onderhanden hebt, in wit/rose en grijs zou ik ook wel willen proberen, mijn collega houdt van die tintjes. Ben benieuwd welke kleurtjes je voor dat dekentje gaat gebruiken.
    Geniet eerst nog even van familie, vrienden en het hollandse landschap, met voor nu, mooi weer,
    groet, Arianne Schenkelaars

  7. Fijn om weer op Nederlandse bodem te zijn he! En het weer zit ook zo lekker mee!
    Mooie dingen heb je weer gemaakt.
    Het babykleedje lijkt qua kleuren een klein beetje op die van mij hihi.
    Leuk om die verrassing te krijgen van je 'lesje'.
    Liefs Renske
