create 'n date Amsterdam June 2nd: the pictures

all pictures by our wonderful photographer Yasmijn Tan

finally I found time to make these collages. a colorful mix of yarn, ladies and name badges on a bright sunny Sunday earlier this month: create 'n date in Amsterdam. the pictures pretty much speak for themselves, we all enjoyed this morning as you can see. meeting each other, enjoying coffee and cake, laughing and working on the crochet workshops prepared by Claire, Saskia and Annemarie. enjoying lunch in the sun, and some more crochet of course. it was so great to meet ladies I've known online through their blogs for years, to be able to see them in real life and chat with them. oh what joy.

for more pictures and stories, have a look over at the blogs by

 thank you so much again Saskia, Claire and Annemarie for all your efforts to make this create 'n date so wonderful. many thanks to all the pretty ladies who joined in with their enthusiasm, you are such a warm and loving group of women! I could not have done this without you all. it is a tough task to try and organize something similar in the future...

  3. Yes! I think this was the event of the year so far for me. I had such a great time. Love all the pictures of hands. We seldom see them here in blog land, only the creations and maybe a thumb or so... They are gorgeous. May I wish for a collage of only hands in crochet action? They would make a gorgeous poster!!!

    Lots of crochet and blog love
