Stitchery bags,

As you know I love to make bags from sweaters and stitchery work. Corry found this stitchery, I think I can make a great bag with these houses,

What's going on.. Beer

It seems like life in this home is focused around this little one
the last two weeks,


When the kids are at home they have to play and cuddle with this cuty, playful a bit naughty Beer,


Now, there is a little problem comming up... what to do when we go camping?
We can bring our kitten to a friend but the kids insist on taking him along...

Does anyone have any experience with taking a cat camping?
Please let me know.

I'm so happy spring is here!
These grape hyacinths came out again,

grape hyacinths

and the weather was so nice.. it inspired our youngest
to some carpentry!

I'm just not sure if it's his (Beer) taste....

A productive easterweekend

What a lovely easter weekend we had, time to do some good sewing and this last day even the weather was fine for a long walk!

The book cover with the windmill is finished,


And I started a new one in the pink/red colors with stitched flowers on it,


They both will be in the shop when finished.

And I made a new bag for the shop..


It is a new model, a bit big, but I really like how it turned out!
As you can see it was a productive easter weekend!... and yes I also had some time to search for the easter eggs, that the easter bunny had hidden for us!

April so time to show the tree photo of this month,


It looks like nothing has changed, but if you watch very good....
you can see the tree buds growing!


Can't wait to show you the next tree picture in may, I'm sure it'll be so different!

Where did march go??
Today I turned a new page on my Dutch costume calander,


If I look outside it doesn't look like April, more like november!
Lots of rain, it is cold, there is a hard wind and just thought I saw some white snowflakes!

But this cute little fellow doesn't care,

cute little fellow

as long as he gets his food, attention and sleep in time!

cute and playful

It is such a cute and playful little kitten!

Becouse I had so much fun making the swap bookcovers,
