After making the orange crochet crowns in April I found I really liked crochet, so I wanted to do some more. And guess what? I think I found a new addiction!
I got these at Echtstudio during the grand opening of their store last Saturday and what a fun day that was!
At noon exactly Kim, the owner, cut through the ribbon
and in we all went, it was busy, busy!
<3 the colours!
A beautiful old cabinet filled with little goodies like pendants, beads, etc. to use for your crochet projects.
Of course it did not take me long to fill up my basket
Nice goody bag with my purchase
What will I do with my lovely cottons? Granny squares!
This will be a nice project for the summer time (am sure summer will happen, even if it is just for one day…) and while I am quilting my Jacob’s Ladder. And now that I have found crochet as a nice diversion from quilting that ripple blanket will happen too sometime….
The week before – during the few hours of sunshine we had - I kept myself busy with cleaning the garden furniture , which went from this
Always such a gratifying job, even though my back doesn’t think so!
Recently we spent a nice afternoon on the ‘Pure Markt’ in The Hague, where we found some great stalls with nice food (even though we watch our weight, we are foodies), like
French breads with herbs
Surinam barra’s, freshly fried by a very cheerful gentleman
Falafal and couscous salad
And last but not least, the first time I had this in The Netherlands: pulled pork!
Look at those huge American bbq’s!
It was delicious, great thing about this: they did not put a lot of sauce on it, so you could really taste that beautiful meat!
Well, the sun is out, better enjoy some of it, it never lasts long over here,
off to the garden now!
