harlequin fringes

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)

alice in wonderland anno 2014

alice in wonderlandalice in wonderland

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.

a sudden spring sensation

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.
Whatever city.
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'

cool crochet meeting on a cold crisp day

amsterdamamsterdamamsterdamamsterdamamsterdamamsterdam

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...
