We had a little birthday boy last week
so there were lots of festivities !
At school, here, at home ...
(oh my ... 5 already ?
so long ago that he was that tiny baby ?
time flies ! )
A most wonderful present !!!
Yesterday daughter, a friend and I
went to the "Knitting fair" (Brei- en Haakdagen) in Rijswijk.
Lots of stalls with goodies
to make into new knitting, crochet
or spinning projects, and lots of inspiration.
So much to choose from ...
I was very busy last week
making some new textile necklaces
It progresses so very s l o w l y :
the fabric needs to be stuffed, closed
and turned into pumpkin shapes.
making some tiny matching crocheted flowers,
felted balls are being embroidered,
finding the "right" beads
then string it all on waxed cord,
I hope to finish more than one to take to the market
in Ouwerkerk (Zeeland) on Pentecost Monday
(and five amulet pendants are finished now)
During a nice sunny day
I darned some of my oldest socks
(I was lucky to find still some leftover bits that matched)
It was really fun sitting there
looking at all the flowers of May
The Allium roseum "jungle" almost in bloom !
Next week the weather will be fine :
so more garden-time !
