On my table

Good morning!! As usual I started this morning with a cup of coffee. And although I have had this mug for quite some time now, I wanted to show it, because of the pattern.

See the design? It’s almost as if it is embroidered with a cute border of ribbons. I love this mug. Maybe some day I will try and make a mug rug for it, using the design on the mug.

This weekend I’ve been quite busy making another scarf with roses, like I made a few weeks ago. It is a fun project and because I can do it without thinking or using a pattern, it’s perfect in these days (sorry, can’t get into this, but life is not so great right now).

This is my table this morning:

On the right the scarf for weaving in all the ends. Just a few more and it will be done and ready for the shop. On the cutting board you can see the fabrics I’m using for the kimono-blocks. I’ve made four of them now, and because I don’t need another wall-hanging, I’m thinking of using them for another fabric basket. I’m using the one I have all the time, and it’s perfect as a project bag; not too big or small. And I can never have too many project bags, can I?

Just to be seen on the picture on the top left, is a red polkadot strap. It’s not quite the way I want it to be, but I’m trying to make a collar for Fleur. It has to be strong, because sometimes she pulls quite hard, and I want the size to be adjustable. As soon as I figured it all out, I will show you.

Groetjes, Dorien

Dorien,
Sorry to hear that life is rough lately. I'm glad you've got your crafting and coffee to see you through. Your rose scarves are beautiful!

Wat een gezellige stofjes gebruik je voor de kimono. Leuk ook die speldenkussen!

Ik wens je veel sterkte met....

Groetjes, Monique

Kun je ook zo genieten van een lekkere kop koffie ? En als de kop dan nog zo mooi versierd is, smaakt ie dubbel zo goed. Je rozensjaal is heel mooi, het lijkt me een perfect project voor een druilerig weekend.
Hopelijk schijnt de zon snel, en kikker je er wat van op. Groetjes, Rozemie

Hi Dorien..life is full of ups and downs isn't it..I pray that it will be on the 'up' for you very soon! Your kimono square is a real winner..I love Japanese design, I wish I suited flowers more because I would buy one of your georgeous scarves in a heartbeat. Hugz from me.

Hi Dorien! Your lovely cup is so perfect for a crafty person and would be great idea for a mug rug too!
My thoughts are with you - also here it's not great at all...
I have been thinking the collar for a dog but never made any. It will be great to get inspiration from you!
I wish you good time! xxx Teje
