With spring coming in a few weeks, there will be lovely days to sit outside. In the beginning it will be a little bit cold in the evenings, so a nice blanket will give you some warmth. With this in my mind, I started knitting a lovely cable blanket. [Read more…]

I wrote it before in my earlier Blogpost, that I have joined the attempt the worldrecord for the Guinness book of records, to crochet the longest Flag Line of “Het Nijehuis”. In that post I put some information about this attempt and also some examples of nice flags to crochet (including the links where to find the the patterns or descriptions). It’s quite an addiction to crochet all those flags, I’m working on it almost every day. I get more and more Ideas, and searching all over the internet to find new patterns;-). It’s not only fun, I’m also learning a lot of new things about crocheting. On the facebookpage Hakenvoorwereldrecord (Sorry it’s a dutch page), I saw these super nice flags from Mary Timmer – de Croon with a heart in the middle of it. There was no pattern, so I tried to make one on my own. I search on the internet for examples of hearts and started trying. I finally succeeded with a good flag, so now i wrote the pattern down for you, so you can all start crocheting this great flag. Read further for the pattern [Read more…]

Afgelopen week las ik op Facebook dat er een heel mooi initiatief gestart was door de stichting het Nije huis, om vlaggetjes te haken voor een Guinness world recordpoging. De bedoeling is om samen meer dan 40.000 vlaggetjes te haken die aan elkaar gemaakt meer dan 10 km vlaggenlijn gaan vormen. Na de recordpoging op 13 maart 2018 zal een deel van de vlaggetjes gedoneerd worden aan diverse afdelingen kinderoncologie die vaak wel wat vrolijke kleurtjes kunnen gebruiken. De rest zal door de stichting zelf verkocht worden, waarbij de opbrengst naar hun eigen Nije huis, een centrum voor ondersteuning en (na) zorg bij kanker, zal gaan. Een heel mooi idee om zo een klein steentje bij te dragen bij deze rotziekte. [Read more…]

It’s more than half a year ago since I wrote a blog. Time flies, I was so busy with all kind of things and all the time I had some half finished posts for the Blog waiting for me. Like the Teepee pillow for with the teepee that I made last year in october. Next to my two Blogs I also have a job as Business controller for three days in a week and also a webshop for hobbymaterials and beads. Last year I started to move some products from the old wbeshop tot the new site Cottonandcandles. With the old site I had to do all the programming myself and I also didn’t liked the name anymore. That’s why I decided to go for the new site, which gives me much more opportunities, and no more programming myself. But in the end it turned out to be much more work than I thought it would be to move all the 2500 products to the new site. So for the last 4 months I was working on the site. It’s still not finished yet, but it starts to look like something. Next to the beads, I’m also selling yarn to knit or crochet, other hobbymaterials and Sewing stuff. If you want to, you can see it for yourself here You can change the language into English on top of the site, left [Read more…]
The year os over so fast this year, less than two weeks and it’s Christmas 2016 already. This year I don’t feel like putting too much Christmas decorations. I always try to make something for Christmas, but I’m a little tired. All the work for my masterthesis cost me a lot of energy.
So i only made a couple corners with Christmas decorations which were easy to pick from the attick or that I bought this year. I you read further you can find some pictures of the Christmas corner in our house for Christmas 2016. [Read more…]
