October 1st

welcome to a new week and a new month

the fourth quarter of 2012 is already here!

can you believe it?

last week I received the sample book of a possible new yarn supplier for my shop

I finished the baby boy knitted blanket and lay out some fabrics for the backing of my crochet cushions

I also finished the wrist cozy's and their pattern

enjoyed my morning drinks at home

and I flew to warm Chicago for my friend's baby shower

there is something special about traveling by myself, it has to do with my sense of freedom

do you experience that too?

beautiful sunset in our neighborhood, as well as pretty Fall trees

and the chocolate cake I brought with me to the baby shower, as well as the wrapped blanket

it was one happy, perfect afternoon we had yesterday when celebrating my pregnant friend


I am ready for another beautiful day in Chicago, and happy to see Nina and her beautiful shop again

as well as the event with Stephen West she has going on tonight, I hope to see you there!

wishing you  lovely new day, week and month


  1. Wat een fijn blogberichtje met prachtige foto's. Ik ben helemaal weg van dat prachtige blauwe dekentje, zo mooi met die kabels!

  2. I love your flower cushions. Is the pattern going to be available in your shop???? Deb

    1. Thank you Deb! The pattern is not mine, it's from the blog Although I tweaked the pattern a bit to my style, it is very much the same. I hope to get in touch with her soon to see if I can do a re-post of the pattern here on my blog. I will do a blog post about them soon!


  3. Everything is s beautiful! Happy October! xo Heather
