The year is rapidly coming to a close now.
Though normally December is a month of festivities
everything is just a bit stranger now.
(the Dutch feast mainly for children
and tongue-in-cheek verses for grown-ups)
was held but with "keeping our distance"
And also Christmas will be under the same rules,
because LOCKDOWN has hit us again
since last Tuesday !
This strange Corona / Covid year
makes everybody uncomfortable
but thank heaven we're all healthy in our little circle !
The one and only "constant"
is the Stitch Club !!!
For Jennifer we made a glove out of paper.
No, one is not able to wear a glove like that :
it's just a decorative item.
I didn't use the pattern that was given,
but traced my own hand.
The paper I used came from a Owfam / Novib calendar :
And besides that the paper it strong enough to stitch through !
The back and thumb were from a page of one of Man's
Some weeks ago I had found my old wedding gloves,
still pristine, because used only one day, hahaha !
For the workshop of Richard McVetis
I had to find a photo and simplify and trace it.
Richards used architecture
but any other picture would do too.
In my photo program I couldn't find the pictures of Rotterdam
that I was looking for, but then I found a magazine
about the harbour of Rotterdam.
There was one I liked !
