Clickety-click ....

...knitting needles...tapestry needle...embroidery scissors...
doll needles...tape measure...chopstick...paint brush...
stuffing stick...row counter...embroidery thread...
 ♥    ♥  
...it really is almost all I need at this moment... 
 in a mug  x
apart from the fact that I would love to live in this house of course
(and as ever will continue to dream because it's good for the soul x )
  ♥    ♥  
...and while I knit...
(with one of my most favourite yarns)
...this is a message to anyone who may like a copy
of the DOLLS from the TEAROOM and A TEAROOM Doll Hat 
knitting patterns in Dutch...now available in our
ETSY Shop
(including the free pinafore pattern which accompanies the dolls)
...another happy crafting adventure... 
this time with my very lovely friend Nancy of
Dolce Lana
who is also to be found here on Facebook 
(and if you're lucky to be visiting Belgium a visit to the beautiful Dolce Lana Shop
would be a real treat :-)  )

Thank you Nancy x
  ♥    ♥  
...the 'Chrystal' knitting pattern will be available in Dutch soon...
...and for anyone who has previously purchased the original ENGLISH written
patterns and would prefer the Dutch translations  
I can send you your free copies... just send me a quick message x


  ♥    ♥  
...and behind the scenes...
I'm knitting every day at the moment,
pattern writing and taking photographs as I work...
making good progress and enjoying the summer days

Back Soon 

Happy Making 

  ♥    ♥  

P.S ...Thank you to everyone too who has messaged me about my crochet cushion
from a couple of posts ago. It isn't from a pattern ... I only have my scribbles...
I'm making another one whenever time permits and 
will be taking some pics of my progress ;-)

  5. You have brightened up my busy Monday with your lovely post.......always such wonderful photographs too. I find your words and photos both inspirational and calming - and it makes me want to knit or sew or crochet right NOW - and not have to do the dusting first.......
    Have a lovely, light - filled week!
    Love,
    Lynda.

  7. Hello Susan! I am always happy to see your blog pop to the top of my list.. I adore the work you do and the colors you use. I treasure my kit I got from you and hope that I can get started on it this winter. I've been gone traveling so much this Spring and Summer! And we're packing now to leave day after tomorrow for a few weeks camping at the lake. ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

  14. Susan, it's wonderful to make progress, especially in creating...glad to hear you are doing so well, and enjoying the summer. Oh, I do like the little blue cottage, too, and you are so right, dreaming is good for the soul. I've been doing a lot of that lately. In the process of a stepping stone move, and I'm imagining all sorts of pleasant things.

    Enjoy the day,
    Marianne xo
