This weekend was all about Henk's birthday!

On Saturday evening after work, we had a kind of pre-birthday dinner together. Lovely food and beautifully laid table, with cutlery, embroidered placemats and table book "artists at home", which Henk had already received as a gift from the children.

On Sunday morning my dearest birthday boy got breakfast in bed (usually it's the other way around) obviously with birthday presents!

Furthermore, in the morning we went to the Kunsthal to see the large-scale exhibition of the work of the Swiss artist Sylvie Fleury. Afterwards we walked around the Museumpark.

For lunch, Henk had booked a table for us at De Matroos en het Meisje in Katendrecht. We enjoyed a festive 4-course surprise lunch!

And on Monday evening one more birthday dinner at home with the family! Henk made his own pizzas and pasta and of course we had ice cream in shiny sundae dishes! La vita è bella...

So Henk had 3 happy birthdays in a row and he deserves it!

super stylish summer gilet - crochet pattern

SUMMER GILET crochet pattern

Hello May! I made this summer gilet last year. This time, however, not knitted but crocheted!

With this super cool & classy shoulder detail, just like the oversized knitted waistcoat, but with a different twist!

And I wouldn't be woodwoolstool if I didn't also write a summer gilet crochet pattern for you.

The gilet is a super stylish item for the upcoming season. You can wear it over a summer dress, but also over a t-shirt or tank top. Or go completely chic with an eye-catching belt.

This piece in your wardrobe is perfectly right when it's a little cooler and you don't need to wear a cardigan or jacket.

Do you need this summer gilet in your wardrobe?!

You can download the crochet pattern in my ETSY SHOP. The super stylish summer gilet crochet pattern is available in English and Dutch version, with easy to follow description, diagram, many photos and video.

For orders in the Netherlands you can also send an email to info@woodwoolstool.com and I will send you the PDF with the crochet pattern directly by email with a 'tikkie' of € 4,00.

More May

After our mini vacation we still had two more 'supervising Tuesdays' to catch up with Liam.
That turned out well, because we still owed it and Liam had chickenpox, so didn't go to daycare but came to play with us for an extra day. Fortunately, Liam had little trouble and quickly recovered completely after a day.

We also dined in the garden more often, with dinners prepared by Henk, with all the trimmings of course...

May is going well so far...
