minne & me

minne & me formentera 1992

My son Minne and me during the summer of 1992 in Formentera!
It's hard to believe it's been so long...

In fact, not much has changed in all those years, because he still has the same lovable character and I am very proud of him.

Today we celebrate his 22nd birthday!

The first cool crochet workshop in Marrakech will start in a few months.

The enthusiasm for the cool crochet workshops is magnificent and both workshops were fully booked rapidly. Yeah, I get it...
Who would not love to crochet in all the beautiful places of Marrakech?

I'm looking forward to meet everyone at Riad Chambres d'Amis in April and October.

For now, I am busy preparing the workshop and working on ​​a few brand new 'cool crochet' designs...
