Saturday in the city.

Actually, we were on our way to Rotterdam.
On the highway, the car was making strange noises and we decided to drive to the garage.
We could borrow bikes and made a triftshop round in our home town Dordrecht.
The old historic center is truly beautiful.
We ate fried fish (kibbeling) on the market.
Bought some vintage Christmas decoration and a 'hard of hearing' sign (SH) and I fell in love with the x-mas windows!

At the end of the afternoon we cycled back to the garage and the car was fixed.
All in all, nothing special, but we had a pretty fun time in Dordrecht!

Voorstraat, the main and longest street of the city.

bathroom rug

wood & wool harlequin rugwood & wool harlequin rug

This colorful harlequin rug I've made with homemade fabric yarn, using piles of old T-shirts.
Good combination of cleanup and reuse.
It's also a very cheap way to make a striking rug!

If you fancy to make this rug for your (bath)room, all you need is a hook size 12 and a huge pile of old T-shirt or about 2000 grams of fabric yarn.

You can buy the harlequin rug PATTERN in my Etsy shop!
