A new pillow on the sofa!
I've made a pineapple pillow, combining my love for pineapples and pillows.
If you would like to make a pineapple pillow yourself, you can order the PINEAPPLE PILLOW PATTERN in my Etsy shop.
Some weeks ago I received a romantic request from Mickey's husband.
He wanted to surprise her with a stool and he send me a photo of the stool Mickey likes so much.
It's the snow white warm & woolly stool I've made for a sweet Australian about 3 years ago.
Today is Mickey's birthday and I would love to see her face when she gets her surprise stool... (and his)
Happy birthday Mickey!

Those woolly experiments are the most fun part of the job.
Working on a new stoolcover with great pleasure.
I am looking forward to this new stool. I love it, even if it's not finished yet.
The new stoolcover design with harlequin fringes is beyond my expectation...
(and in my mind it was already pretty awesome)

The world famous stories Alice's Adventures in Wonderland (1865) and Through the Looking Glass (1871) by Lewis Carroll, are bundled in a new edition with cute and innovative illustrations by Floor Rieder.
For this book Floor used an old scratch technique in which she managed to create a new, witty and timeless Alice, you immediately close in your heart.
“You're entirely bonkers. But I'll tell you a secret. All the best people are.” ― Lewis Carroll, Alice in Wonderland

After completing a custom made stool cover for Pip from London, I suddenly realized the cover has adapted to the boucherouite carpet in our living room.
A case of chameleon crochet.

Those flowers are on the kitchen table for almost the whole week now.
The afternoon sun is shining through the living room and it was so light, when I came home from work.
All of a sudden I was overwhelmed by a strong spring sensation, just looking at the very same flowers...
I love that feeling!
(and I had to capture the moment)

Sunday in the city.
We both love the city, always did.
Paris, London, Berlin, Antwerp or Amsterdam.
Yesterday we visited Amsterdam, we often do.
It was a cold crisp day, just the two of us, walking through Amsterdam.
We both enjoyed this way to celebrate our 'H♥I anniversary'
'it was all f*cking awesome'

Last Sunday we had a Cool Crochet meeting in Amsterdam for the upcoming April workshop in Marrakech!
It's was a cold crisp day, with loads of Sunshine. We took the ferry to Pllek and had lunch overlooking the IJ. The house cat was lying in the sun under the table next to us.
My sweet friend Ank (owner of riad Chambres d'Amis) and I can't hardly wait to welcome the participants in the Moroccan warmth and great ambience of Marrakech.
We have lots of wonderful ideas for the time we will spend in Morocco with a very cool group of crocheteers from around the world.
Afterwards I had a wonderful day in Amsterdam with my love, to celebrate the 'day-we-first-met' (exactly 29 years ago!)
more on that later...
