work with colors on my plate. Nothing to show for, yet.
and enjoy colors in my glass vase. This amarelys is blooming for the second time now.
And I was thinking, actually we were. Heleen and I wondered if any of you would be interested in joining our first swap. Sign up will be somewhere next week. First we have to work out the details.

It's still cold outside. Even calico cat found himself a pleasant warm place in front of the central heating.
I'm up in my attic dug around for unfinished projects.
I joined "OPAM 2010", The one project a month challenge 2010.
This will be my change to get some things finished.
My problem, you see, when I'm in the middle of a project
I start something completely new!
So, here is a glimpse of a tabble runner or mini quilt (not sure yet) I started here.
This will be my Januari challenge!

greetings for you from three little Dutch girls
wearing little Dutch aprons...
A happy Sunday from me too!
PS. Thank you for all your lovely comments on last post. Many of you asked where they could buy these jars. All I know is that my MIL purchased them at the AH store.

Bonne Maman confiture comes in lovely shaped jars with a checkered lid on.
After eating all the jam don't throw away the empty jars.
They are handy for storing buttons, beads, needles etc.....
Thank you MIL for eating lots of jam and saving the empty jars for me!

It's still winter outside and I'm sitting cozy upstairs in my own little space.
Drinking coffee and eating kitkat's, they are low in calories, you know (lol)! I'm looking at family pictures I picked up from the store this morning. They turned out great. Luca's first time in the snow.
Here is Daantje (that's her name)with her gorgeous flowery apron on.
Isn't she cute? She's posing for me so I can take her photograph.
You can see she loves flowers by the cross-stitch flowers on her apron and the roses on her dress.
I made a start on Daantjes friends. They don't have all their bodyparts yet and one needs a face. But the girls aprons are done!
I'm going now, make myself a second cup of coffee!
See you next time!

Hello everyone, how are you all! Did you survive the holiday season?
Well we did alright, although I only
have to will eat low calorie food
for the next few weeks or so!
A new year calls for a new calender.
This new one is hanging in my craftsroom. It's actually a birthday calender.
It contains beautiful cross-stitch sampler patterns
and a farmers saying for each month.
The calender is published by Tesseschade-Arbeid Adelt
Besides all the eating I did this past two weeks
I also managed to squeeze some crafty time in.
A new doll. She asked me for some polkadot shoes....
And who am I to say no...
Have a good start of January's first week!
