almost .....

The end of September
means for me that it's almost October :

PINK RIBBON month

It is also my 9th blogaversary
but like last year there will be no giveaway
because PINK RIBBON is eating
all of my energy
(but I promise ... next year : 10 ... I will)

Though I'm busy with some felting preparations
it's not easy this year.
Back ache causes me to do things quietly
BUT
I hope I will be able to make a jewel every day ... 
(if not, sorry, then I'll have to skip one or two)





See you again in two days !!!

19 - 8 - 19 (forgot again ...)

I knew this would happen :
that I forgot the funny-date-post ...

(that happens when your life isn't ruled anymore by work and dates)

Last Sunday, daughter and I went to the Textile Biannual

(till Sunday October 6)

We visit that lovely small (old and new) museum
in a town that has grown into
our government city The Hague.
(bonus : there was also a small textile market that day !)




























(sorry didn't find all the names ...)

We had a lovely day together
and I can only say that there was some beautiful work
BUT
it was for us (!)
not the WOW-factor that we experienced other years

That can happen

Go see for yourself !

just wonderful


This was a SUNNY day
(in more than one way !)

Saturday early morning traffic is low :
it took us only one hour to the

Someone had cancelled, so the stall
between us and our next neighbour was empty
and we were allowed to divide that space between us.
(some welcome extra space, easily filled !)

Ready for the customers to arrive !

The sun shining, the stall filled,
so just time to do a quick round at the market
and greet some lovely people we met last year.




This market is such a happy mix of artistic and ecological products.

(with a welcome of the organization
with coffee / tea and something sweet !)

Lots of people came by during the day.
I talked and explained a lot about the things I make.
I received lots of compliments,
and I had wonderful new
and even some "old" customers

THANK  YOU  all very much !!!

I hope you enjoy the things you bought, for a loooong time !




And imagine this :
when we came home
our daughter had made us a wonderful dinner !

("Kip in de Hoed"   Cherry/chicken Pie)

Totally unexpected, but 
soooooooooooo sweet !!!

Thanks my love !

Eco and Art market (Amerongen)

YES
next week we will be at the wonderful


again.

Last year it was a really great experience
so our hopes are high
that this good organisation and these lovely people
will give us a "home" once more.


I will take my textile jewels,
felted birds and felted accessories,
the little pouches I made a few weeks ago
and some gouache paintings.
A "rainbow" of colours !

(ha, totally "me" of course)


Hope to see you there
