people keep asking me to restore trousers and of course I love to help them. but in the meanwhile my pile of trousers which needed restoring kept growing and staring at me. finally today I forced myself to do it. otherwise trousers wouldn't fit anymore...

days are getting shorter and darker quickly here...neighbors moving (so sad!), made them this light (ljus) in a box.

last year vlijtig made a beautiful autumn garland. by the time I had the time to make it, it was too i decided to give it a second change and because autumn is so short here I had to handle quickly...and yes! this year our hallway is all autumn! and I could use the yarn I bought in the thrift store...finally a good destination for that, only still about 100 meter left ;-))

on our trip to the states we came across this amazing exhibition of a crochet coral reef. it was so impressive. it was made by a group of women for a good cause...was happy to donate for this cause! seeing this made me realize I really want to learn crochet...i tried once, but have to be persistent i think to make it work.
