at home


Today was all about baking cookies (recipe found here), wrapping last minute presents and being lazy on the couch.

I want to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a happy New Year, full of family and friends, good food cozy times and much love.  Thank you for all the nice words and all your support this year ...

I will see you all back in 2013 (I have a feeling it will be a great year)!



Today you can find me over at One sheepish girl, the inspirational (knitting/crochet) blog of Meredith. I did a little interview where I talk about my yarn bag.

Hope you will enjoy!

I'm taking it a little bit slower as you might have noticed. Enjoying winter (we had our first snow!) while staying inside with a warm blanket, drinking coffee and knitting. It's the perfect time for knitting don't you think?

• Proud of my fast growing Pilea.
• Knit knit knit in my favorite chair.
• A visit to Solar & Otark giftshop and new socks from Mieke Willems.
• Sinterklaas leftofers and good reading.

New print!


Hi dear friends! Did you all had a great weekend? It has been such a long while and I hope I can soon blog a little bit more on a regular basis again but for now there is so much going on here. All hectic but still fun.

Other things that are not in the picture.
• Started a little side project with my knittingneedles again.
• Choosing windows for the new home.
• Visting a very busy fabric market and will soon start sewing again.
• Cleaning roof tiles
• Long walks beneath the Autumn sun.

A new print is in my shop and I hope you all like it. It's totally different than what I would normally make but sometimes change is good!

Untill very soon!

The girl and the teacup.


Happy Sunday to you all! How are you all doing? I know I've been quite abcent lately all due to a lot of work. I'm really missing my blog and hope to catch up with you very soon.
I am making some graphic work for friends and family which I hope to show you all in one of the next days. I'm also working on new knit designs, getting the Christmas feeling and we are still renovating like crazy (really need to update our renovation blog since we are now working on the roof). I said it before but these days have just too little hours to get all things done.

+ If you want to get to know me a little bit more there is an interview with me on the lovely blog 'Lottie loves'.
Thank you Charlotte for having me!

++ My part of Mina's summer swap arrived with Lotte from 'Belle fleur de lis'. Have a look!

Hope I will be back soon but in the meantime here is a new print which is now available in the shop and on Etsy. Enjoy!
