Christmas is coming.

This supposed to be a Christmas post, that is
without Christmas tree, maybe some
crocheted frostwork will do and a cosy igloo
instead of a crib, what do you think?

Dried leaves of White Poplar, Populus Alba
and Christmas tree made of a dried
Burdock leaf

More frostwork here and here

Inside my igloo :^)

Stein, Toklas and Basket.
The Alice B. Toklas cookbook.

This was my week.

I'm sorry I've been a bit absent lately, that's not
because I don't like blogging anymore, far from that :^)
the problem is, I still can't find any structure in my
day's schedule - in clear terms, I'm always running out
of time; that's probably also the reason why my
webshop isn't online yet, too bad.

So, this was my week:
finished two more mobiles, browsed into some nice books,
( these beautiful potteries from Nesrin During would go
very well on my new table :^) and got some very tasty
almond cookies from the people downstairs :)
Have a nice weekend everybody!
( in case you might be interested in a mobile, cushion
or pincushion, you can always email me, I'm sorry
for this inconvenience )
have a look at my flickr too

Land of rivers.

Remember my Metropolis project? I had to cut
up the piece to make the pincushions, too bad.
This is a variation of the original embroiderie,
however, the hard-working pioneers and their
windmills are replaced by a quiet little village
among the hills just before sunrise.
Mespilus Germanica or medlar, photo
taken by Sus in his garden.

Have a nice weekend everybody :^)

Tree with unknown fruits in the park.

Nice interview with Morteza at Studio Fludd,
have a look at his blog too.

Happy weekend everybody.

New cushion.

Do you remember that funny Big Lebowsky quote,
when The Dude says 'That rug really tied the
room together'? Well, since I have
hanged this embroiderie on the wall, I mean the dark
blue one with the soft orange shape, everything
started to crystallize in this place and from now on I'm
having a soft spot for oranges and indigos :-)

Anigozanthos or kangaroo paw.

Freezing cold but sunshine this morning.

By the way, I haven't moved my bed to the
bedroom yet, yes it is still there, but I'm full
of good intentions to move it to the place where
it belongs before Christmas :-)
Good Night.

Nice day :-)

Nice day recipe:
read a book and
enjoy the morninglight while you're in bed,
wake up very slowly
mess around in the house with your pyjamas on
than finally have a shower
go to a gallery with a friend
have a walk in the city and than a coffie in a nice place
than buy a table, look here; mine is similar but has black legs
(unfinished mitten with no thumb)
and before we went home we popped in copyright
have a nice weekend everybody!
ps. I forgot to mention that I closed my day with
an episode of true blood :-)

The zabuton project.

The zabuton project for mr kitly;
remember this post?
I took the same design in cross stitch on a strong cream
coloured linen, I also want to combine some of the
zabuton with patchwork; can't decide yet for the colours.
