two

I needed a child-friendly coffee table.
I made this one with crocheted organic wool, 
luckily I found the perfect tray that goes with it.
Though the children use it either as a surfboard or as a flying saucer.
It doubles as alternative seating too.

making



More granny squares, this time for a cushion cover. 
Still needs the fabric for the back. 
I quite like the combinations of pastel colours with browns and white.

patterns










Some day, like today, it would be better to do nothing.
So to cheer myself up I went to my local bookshop
where I bought this book: V&A Pattern, The Fifties. 
Feeling better already.

collected




I'm very fond of buttons, I collect them and the very precious one, 
the old and stained, the ones that once belonged to someone else 
are the most treasured.

unfinished





I'm making a blanket for Anita (my daughter) and I know I need trillions of these little squares
not to mention all the threads I have to hide... I will finish it one day...eventually.

nope, it never happened!

Look at this inspiring textile exhibition at Renilde's. 

Super cute Papier Mache magazine is out with works of Gini, Elisabeth, Barbara and much much more. 
Eye candies!
