    Adventure in colour

    On December 23th, Line, my brother’s youngest daughter, turned one! Amazing how fast time flies. For her first birthday, I wanted to knit a cute dress and I had fallen in love with a pattern that required a technique that I have been wanting to learn since before I could knit: fair isle knitting. The Banasik Tunic by designer Anna…

    Bye 2017, hello 2018

    Let me start by wishing you all the very best for the new year! May 2018 bring you everything you wish for and more! The blog has been neglected this last month and the English side of it even longer so. My last English post dates as far back as to the summer of 2016! Amazing how fast time goes…

    Every little girl wants to be queen Elsa

    The plan to systematically translate my Flemish (=Dutch) posts in English has lost a bit of its wind, since I’ve been omitting so much translations. My last translation dates as far back as October 2015, while I have been posting fairly regularly in Dutch. I think this is partly because I don’t know how much interest there is in my…

    Made another security blanket

    I’ve been neglecting this place again, haven’t I? These last two weeks were a bit *meh*. I had to briefly go to Finland again for work and once I got back I wasn’t feeling 100%. But I never feel sick enough to justify to myself to stay home and I also don’t easily go to the doctor. So I kept…

    Instagram & WIPs

    This summer my phone died. It wasn’t completely unexpected, but I had hoped it would last until the release of the new IPhone. I had set my mind on the IPhone 5S and I hoped the release of the new model would bring down the price. Unfortunately, I do not have such luck and thus needed to buy a new…

    Gus the knight

    One of my colleagues became mom to a little boy named Gus last November. The announcement featured this tough-looking knight. So when I got to test a pattern for a knight doll for Annelies from Vicarno , I already knew to whom I was going to give my knight. I’ve finished my doll a while back, but I was not…

    Movie review: La Belle et la Bête (2014)

    That I am a huge fan of the fairytale Beauty and the Beast, you might already have gathered? It was the very first Disney film that I saw in the theatre and it is still today my favourite Disney film ever. No matter which book that is said to have been inspired by this tale, I must and shall read…

    That time I tried to make roses from clay

    A while back I said that I was totally intrigued by the beautiful things people could make out of clay and that I also wanted to try it out. And recently in the shops I saw a packet of air-dry modelling clay for a ridicoulisly low price, so yeah, why not give it a try? The clay was grey, like…

    Big Brother is watching you

    Today’s my birthday. And I’m not just saying this to get birthday-wishes, but because I saw this on Google this morning: And I though, “Hey, what a coincidence. What would be the meaning of these cakes? A famous birthday?” And then I scrolled over the image and saw this: And yeah, that does creep me out a little. Yes, I…
