Farewell 2010

2010 is slowly coming to an end. So this will probably our last post this year.
But before we go celebrate new years eve…
We want to thank you’ll for dropping by,
for your interest and attention and your lovely, warm and kind comments.
It's been a pleasure to be able to share our creative thoughts with you all.
We are looking forward to a New “creative” Year to share.
Until then, we wish you much love, health and happiness.

Farewell 2010

I still have to show you these pictures of the beautiful pillowcase Monique made for me.


I love this wee mouse

She spoiled me with these gorgeous fabrics and labels......


Here's is what I made for Monique.
I used a kind of velvet/velours dark grey fabric.
And crocheted scalloped edges around it.
The center M is cross-stitched and a crochet flower to complete it all.

This little guy is hanging in our Christmas tree.

Happy New Year to you'll,
Heleen and I certainly hope to see you soon next year!!

Groeten, Corry

Clever mittens and a gingerbread heart

by Corry
Have I got something to show you!!!
This morning I received these two..
clever mittens
A very kind lady knitted these mittens for me.
It are clever mittens..look, here's why...

clever mittens
The top can flip over the fingers to the front
so all fingers are free to use.

clever mittens
The colors are so bright and just me!
Wish I new how to knit mittens!
Maybe I have to take some lessons from the kind lady.

Something I know I can
gingerbread winter heart
I used the very last corner that was left of the brown cross-stitched tablecloth
to make a last gingerbread winter heart.

For the back I used an old oilily blouse.

gingerbread winter heart
I put the heart in our store.
We still have winter weather. Makes me want to eat real winter food.
So, I'm cooking erwtensoep (pea soup) right now
and while my soup is on the stove, I have time to quilt some stitches.
red folklore nine patch quilt
Happy quilting!

Sinterklaas and kids art

by Heleen
Just a few more nights and it is Sinterklaas feest!
This time of year is busy but gives a warm cozy feeling, gezellig!

Sinterklaas kapoentje

In our classroom we always make a nice fireplace we sing songs
we made shoes to put by the fireplace so Sinterklaas
can put some candy and pepernoten in the them.

Of course we also made Pieten (Sinterklaas assistent).

Zwarte piet Zwarte piet

four, five and six year old are great to celebrate Sinterklaas with!


The sevent grade (10-11 year) made these rosets,


And these portraits in style of the Italian artist Modigliani


I just love these portraits!

I'm off now.. busy making Sinterklaas preparations..

groetjes Heleen

Christmascard boxes,

by Heleen
I love Christmas card boxes.
Through the house I have lots of them. Not that I send so many cards,
no I just love and buy the boxes (mostly with the cards).

Christmas card boxes

The boxes are so handy! You can keep little projects inside them.

Christmas card boxes

like a little Dutch scrapquilt.

Christmas card boxes

And this yoyo quilt project.
This one is the latest addition,

Christmas card boxes

It is filled with cards now but I can't wait to give it a new purpose!
How about you? what is in your christmas card boxes?

groetjes Heleen
