wool on wood

wood & wool harlequin blanket

Is it a stained glass window?

Is it a painting?

No, it's wool on wood.
A handmade harlequin blanket stuck on wood.

You can made this multicolored blanket with wool leftovers.

It's fun to do. All harlequins are simple small projects.
You can make the blanket with all types of yarn and in any size you want.

The harlequin pattern is available HERE.

100% wool

wood & wool cabinet

Dille & Kamille (dill & chamomile) is one of my favorite Dutch concept stores.
The wonderful mix of sustainable products, all with a natural simplicity, are timeless.

It's simply impossible for me to leave the Dille & Kamille shop without buying anything.

I've bought some 100% wool balls in their shop in Rotterdam some weeks ago.
I chose the nude colors, but they are all very pretty.

Although I'm still working on the black knitted sweater dress, I started a 100% wool crochet-side-project today.
The balls were calling, from the cupboard on my desk, when I was working ;)

white blossom magic

white blossomwhite blossomwhite blossom

White blossom.

Good thing is the blossom is blooming, the buds have already unfolded.
It often happens the tiny flowers don't open up, but just dry out.

Rosa, you did a good job and brought the perfect blossom branches!
Thanks, for a bit of spring inside the living!

Weekend knitting on the carpet.

Love it! (with music & tea)
Yesterday I finished the back side of the knitted sweater dress.
Now I'm working on the front side and I'm almost halfway :)
The sleeves will be easy, so maybe I can wear my black sweater dress next week!
