Happy weekend to you all!

Tuesday, March 23, 2010


I've been collecting onion skins for a while now (you need a lot for dyeing wool!) and I might have just enough for a small skein.
I store them in an old - and very worn - linen pillowcase.

happy Spring!

It's the second day of Spring here, but the sun is still hiding behind a heavy curtain. More light please!

I made a blurb book with my photos of 2009 and am very happy with it!

One good, one bad

Thank you Ajda Cveti! She awarded me a Kreative Blogger Award, and you find her lovely blog here.

And here are the rules:
1. Thank the person who gave this to you.
2. Copy the logo and place it in your blog.
3. Link the person who nominated you.
4. Name 7 things about yourself that no one would really know.
5. Nominate seven 'Kreativ Bloggers'
6. Post links to the seven blogs you nominate
7. Leave a comment on each of the blogs letting them know you nominated them.

I hope you won't mind if I don't share 7 things about me, but I just spent 1hour and 27 mins deleting 155 spam comments from this blog, and this put me off completely.
I am sorry, but for the time being I switched on comment moderation.

now it's my turn, so I'd like to award my fellow bloggers at:


detours around the loom


crazy as a loom

honeysuckle loom


life looms large


The shawl has a really simple shape, and again it starts as a scarf, or rather a long strip.
the size is up to you really, mine is about 35x220 cm - you can see it back here

Remembering Meg, I made a little paper mock-up in order to show you how it's done. Have fun!

now I need flowers

Last days of sale at my local Ikea store: they were getting rid of all the IKEA PS vases as well!
I've always wanted the pink one ;-)

Cristina, your shawl is ready! Can't wait to see it on you!
