(this recipe and no, not our own strawberries. Needed way more than I can grow)

a quilt in the making

Of course there are patterns one can follow. That would be wise, even. But I usually just start cutting with a vague idea in my head and then I need the floor to lay it out and see how it's going to come together...

A bag to give

For someone who didn't have a clue what to ask for her birthday:  a bag with lots of pockets, in her favorite color, big enough for A4 (she's a teacher) and not too fuzzy, but with some embelishment.
She loved it (phew! I'm still insecure about making gifts)

So that's who's been eating my cherries...


I don't like my picture being taken. I never like the result. But now there was no reason to say no when T. said he'd take pictures of the skirts I made. I'm on my perfect weight, my hair was clean. I drank some wine, that helps.
So. This is me.
And the skirts I made.

Rembember? Sorting all those photographs?
It's done.

Everything is sorted into albums. Doesn't that look great?

I found a little stranger in the bathroom today.

Nope, you can't go up.

I took him outside, but he wasn't thankful enough to pose for a picture...
