little cowboy

Yesterday Willem is born! He is the son of my sister in law. We're very proud of this little fellow. I made him a cowboy blanket and garland. Welcome Willem!


love it how my eldest son always gives structure to everything. He already did that when he was very little (putting all the cars in line). But now his drawings skills get better, he even structures everything in his drawings.

finding form

It's funny how shapes originate. I made this music mobile for Jente, the babygirl of friends. I first made the squirrel and thought well what matches a squirrel? an acorn (So when the music plays the squirrel goes to the acorn). And since I bought a new sensational fabric (silver??!!) I made the acorn out of that fabric. I like the combination of colors and textures, but the shapes may be a little strange....anyway at least it's a funny result. I also made her the stamp.

looking forward

I know it's early, but because of the first little bit of sun I'm already looking forward to easter...

ballet birthday girl

yesterday my sisters daughter, Juul, turned 4! It's such a special age, so many changes, going to school, starting her first ballet classes. So I made her a balletbag with one of the embroideries my parents bought in France. The corsage with her initial can be removed. Hope she will become a great ballerina.

big difference

I bought a new lino cutter and that makes a big difference, for stamp making I always used an old one. It's a lot easier now, a few examples of the results.

getting organized

After a while of working on several projects everything is a total mess so getting organized again is inevitable. While cleaning up my working space I came along a pin cushion I made in the second grade, the beginning of my crafting and now so vintage ;-), sweet memories..

birds & dots

I really love felting. especially the reversible possibilities of it.
