A feminine midi skirt for fall and winter!
Besides the Dutch pattern, the wood & wool midi skirt pattern is now also available in ENGLISH.
In 2008 I designed a striped midi skirt. The skirt was almost as popular as the star boots...
Last week I made a new woolen skirt in grey. It's warm and very comfortable to wear.
A few balls of wool, a hook and a couple of 'crochet days' is all you need to make the midi skirt. It's a fun fall fashion project!
PS: for all Dutch readers. Het patroon is ook verkrijgbaar in het Nederlands ;)

Een heerlijke midi rok voor de herfst en winter!
Het nederlandse PATROON van de wood & wool midi rok is nu verkrijgbaar in mijn Etsy shop.
In 2008 ontwierp ik een gestreepte midi rok. De rok werd bijna net zo populair als de laarzen.
Afgelopen week maakte ik een nieuwe rok voor de winter, deze keer van een iets dikkere wol in het grijs.
PS for all non Dutch:
The ENGLISH pattern is now available too!

I've made this harlequin rug with homemade fabric yarn, using piles of old T-shirts of me and my family (with their approval). It's cheap, although I have to admit it's a lot of cutting.
It's a lovely do-it-yourself autumn project.
If you want to make this bedside rug for your home, all you need is a hook size 12 and a huge pile of old T-shirt or about 2000 grams of fabric yarn.
Eversince I made my first harlequin rug, I get lots of questions about the pattern, so the 10-page PATTERN of this harlequin rug is now available in my Etsy shop!
No more cold feet when you step out of bed.

The Y V E S T O W N * W I N T E R F A I R is approaching!
Here's a new wood with x-mas trees, made with old wood.
An eco-friendly Christmas tree, it will last for years!
Hope to see you on Sunday the 30th of November in Yvestowns garden in Lommel, Belgium.
Save the date, I can promise you, it's definitely worth to drive across the border, because the market is full of interesting stalls and lovely folks.
Winterfair wood in my e t s y s h o p.

When you are a fan of Nathalie Lété, you need to visit Gallery HERFST at Villa Augustus.
Gallery HERFST [AUTUMN] is a new initiative of Villa Augustus. Hotelroom 24, located at the garden of the hotel is occasionally transformed into a temporary gallery.
Nathalie Lété's work is currently exhibited in Gallery HERSFT.
The gallery is open from Thursday to Sunday from 13:00 - 17:00 PM.
The exhibition will last until the end of the year and in the market shop we sell a wide selection of her work throughout the week. Come and see!
Nathalie stayed at Villa Augustus for some days and has been signing piles and piles of her newest books in the market shop. She also made some beautiful drawings during her stay.
Yesterday I was at work in the market and asked Nathalie if she would sign her 'Farmer's bag' for me, instead of a book.
Sweet as she is, she signed the pears & birds bag and also made a few more drawings on the bag.
Je suis heureuse comme une poire!
