Bits and Pieces


krokussen Molen van Piet Feb 2014

Flowers all around! It is Spring and I must admit I don’t really feel like staying in today. Lots to do, but I guess it is better to go out in the sun today.

Our bedroom is getting renovated and as it always happens in an old house, the amount of work is at least twice what you anticipated. But the not so nice part of getting the wallpaper down and the paint scrubbed with sandpaper is done now, and now we can start making all beautiful again. Hopefully I can show you soon! But at least then you know why I’m not blogging as much as I should.

Before starting on the bedroom, we had to empty it. And one of the things I found was this:


Lots of yarn left over from a cardigan I made more than 10 years ago, and which I still wear almost every day! I think lots of people have a cardigan or a sweater which is always by hand, and which you wear whenever you feel  cold or when you need comforting.


It’s a design from Kaffe Fassett and I simply love it. If you take a close look, you can see it isn’t that beautiful anymore, with lots of pilling and threads getting worn. But still, I guess it’s going to be with me for a long, long time.

Looking at both pictures, I’m not sure where the yellow comes from. And I didn’t use it again. Everything else I used in a very simple but nice little project, which I can only give you a little preview of. It’s part of a larger project I’m working on. When time is there, I’ll tell you all about it, but until then:


Groetjes, Dorien

Your dear jacket is beautiful! My 'best friend' doesnt' look that lovely with dark Brown colour but it's soft, warm, not too warm, comfy and cosy. I even sleep with it sometimes.
Oh, the NEW Project looks exciting! x Teje

Love the photo of the crocus' - they are beautiful. Good luck with the re-decorating!
