Gift for big sister Rosa

A while ago I embroidered the name of (then) newborn little Lucía. Her parents asked if I could embroider the name of their oldest daughter as well.

Now Rosa’s name can be displayed next to her little sister’s name Lucía!

(…you can find the post from Lucía on January 28, 2023)

Family weekend

Once a year my boyfriend’s family organizes a family weekend somewhere in the Netherlands. 

This time we were all together in a villa in Vierlingsbeek; 

a lot of fun and warmth in a beautiful surrounding with emerging nature. 

Spring is clearly in the air!

Sunny days

My last post was about snow and white winter landscapes;

but today it almost feels like spring!

The cat can’t be more happy with this warmth 

and follows all the sunny spots in the living room.

One of her favorite spots is our little vintage poof.

Snowy days

An unexpected surprise this week: 

a beautiful white winter landscape because of snow.

Still perfect weather to make tiny sweaters!

Somehow they are almost addictive 

to crochet and I can’t stop making them…

A handmade little present for newborn Frej.  

I’m crocheting a bunch of tiny sweaters during 

Christmas time and winter…

And when a little baby boy is born, 

why not make one especially for him?

This little sweater is partially inspired by his birth announcement card!

Happy New Year!

This year has really flown by!

Yet, I managed to fulfill my personal goals I set for myself this year, 

which gave me a peace of mind.

And in the creative field I’ve been pleasantly surprised 

by a new technique that I would like to further explore in the new year!

So, all that’s left to say is: Happy New Year to all of you!

Merry Christmas!

A Merry Christmas to all of you!

I hope you have beautiful and enjoyable days 
together with your loved ones.
Let us be grateful for everything we have and keep in mind that there are many who aren’t that blessed in the world at the moment…

Now it can finally show off on the Christmas tree!

Mushrooms, mushrooms, mushrooms!

Autumn is such a wonderful time of the year, 
all those colors and that wonderful smell.
To enjoy this autumn atmosphere even more, 
we went to the forest. 
And what a bunch of mushrooms grew there; I had never seen so many species together!

Belated Pumpkin carving

Since we just got back from our trip, Halloween took a bit of a back seat. But we won’t let just pass the opportunity to carve a pumpkin. So this afternoon we sat down with our carving set, some nice music and a drink…
We’re quite happy with the result!

Picking up our Wally in Italy

We went back to Italy, 
because we had to pick up our camper that we had left there. 
Luckily our Wally was still there, 
safe and sound, waiting for us!

A new adventure awaits!

This year I got a very special birthday present:
a duo tufting gun.
This is a tool you can use to make rugs or wall hangings. 
Now I can make bigger items and also at a higher speed than I normally do. 
I’m so excited!

World Animal Day!

Happy World Animal Day to everyone who has or loves animals all over the world!
What would we human beings be, 
without the unconditional love of our beloved pets?

Our long trip to Northern Italy

With proud I can say we made it to the North of Italy with our little campervan named Wally!
It was quite a journey; just after we left our tour seemed to end again.. But miraculously we got our camper working again and we drove to Italy in a few weeks!
It was a wonderful trip with beautiful nature, interesting sights and above all delicious food!

Little baby boy

Little Tove is born! 
Because his birth announcement contained seeds to sow and his proud parents have a special bond withe Sweden, I chose the Trifolium Repens, also known as the White Clover, as design.

Little piggy 

When someone is crazy about a certain animal and asks you to embroider it, 
you definitely can’t say no.
I had so much fun designing and making this assignment.
The result: 
a simple pig with many color variations, 
and of course a personal quote!

A relaxed work mode 

There's nothing better than being creative on a hot summer day while dipping your feet in the paddling pool.
…and of course also knowing that you are embroidering something for someone who will probably be very happy with it!

Happy International Cat Day!

Look how lovely and purrrfect this little four-legged bastard poses for the photo in our new kitchen.
Aesthetics at its best!

Short trip to Berlin!

We brought a visit to Berlin last weekend. With a small bag and our vintage folding bikes with us, we wandered through the streets, museum and flea market.
What a wonderful and lively city it is!

New designs!

 It’s been quite a long time ago I added new designs to my jewelry collection, but finally it happened!

Turtle Mania!

 What a wonderful crochet pattern from LolaCrafts: 
one big mother turtle with a lot of baby turtles as a memory game. Every small turtle has a colored belly; you need to combine the two matching colors.
When the game is over, you can store everything nicely by putting the little turtles in the big mother turtle!

 When a baby is born, it is always nice as new parents to receive a gift that has a special meaning. Give them an embroidered version of the birth announcement as a tangible reminder!
you can order your personal embroidered version via PM or Etsy.

On their way!

 Today this package went to an Etsy customer:
a nice handmade wooden frame with the embroidered quote ‘Steekje los’ (a screw loose), together with a hand-knitted necklace with a unique wooden twig as a pendant.

Happy Father’s Day!

 To all kinds of fathers in the world I would like to say:
Happy Fathers Day!
Don’t hesitate and send a lovely card to them by airmail!

Monday, June 5, 2023



 This week starts with a new assignment: 
converting a birth announcement into a cross stitch embroidery.
Love to make these!

Tuesday, May 30, 2023



 Besides making jewelry and all kinds of objects, 
I love to visit markets and ‘collect’ vintage clothing and accessories.
But sometimes you have to declutter again; the annual  Pentecostal market in Kanne in Belgium is a great way to sell your collection!

It’s all about unicorns!

When a customer asks to
embroider something and he comes up with this idea,
 you certainly don’t hesitate!
‘I was like, “whatever bitches”, 
and the bitches whatevered
