Looking good

Still too cold for swimming. But great for sitting outside.

Finally... my hands in the dirt.

He's too deaf to apreciate the sound, but he likes the warmth that comes off our old radio.

I saw them all over the internet and had to try. So far it's fun. And I do have enough scraps to keep on making them for a while.

Brought that silly elephant home from South-Africa. It was a last minute "spend those last Rands" buy at the airport, but it's growing on me.

At the living room table

They all have their own rooms. And they are studying at university, make up artist or business schools. It's not elementary school or even high school anymore and I can't be of any help with it.
But they still gather here, at the living room table, to do their home work. I like that. These are the things I want to remember when my nest is empty.

Embroidery, bags and patchwork

After the first one that I liked so much, I cut into another embroidered piece from the little suitcase.

And after that I used one of my own little drawings.

In the meantime I aslo messed around with my Anna Maria Horner scraps (and the pieces of the bag I dismantled again - it didn't work at all). It's not enough for a quilt, but pillowcases should be possible.

My room

It was time to shake up things in my room (it already moved from the other room to this one). I needed more space to write. I'm working on a new book and I also have plenty to write for the newspaper. I also still wanted room to sew and keep the printers available for the girls. Mission accomplished!
