woohoo, I've won a 3 month guestspot in Anna Aspnes team

I cannot believe it but I've won a 3 months guestspot in Anna's Team
As most of you know I'm addicted to Anna's artistic designs ; I've been known to break my shopping ban  just to get her latest kits.
We had an aa designs ladder challenge at Oscraps which resulted in 9!! layouts in one week. Every day an extra step or 2 were taken on a new layout . I got a lot further with my heritage book.
Anna's designs are suitable for any style.
these are some of the layouts I did last week.

making progress

this goes quite quick , specially when you're curious what the next row will be

A bit of a disappointment was the row with bobbles as they don't seem to be very big bobbles. next time I have to do this row I'll make some changes to them .

As we go Stripey Blanket

oops I've run out of wool for my knitted blanket- still 2 squares to go but the next ball is in Scotland and i'm in Holland. There fore I could start the next blanket this one is for Jennifer for when she moves into a big girls bed.

So addictive it is just another row, and another one and.... the pattern can be found here http://notyouraveragecrochet.com/as-we-go-stripey-blanket/ 
It also has been translated into Dutch and there is a group who are doing rows week by week but I want to go at my own pace.

two posts in one day?? what's up?

as I have a local food/craftmarket in the middle of April it's high time to make some stock. I've hardly any cards left.


being strict with myself

I'm strict with myself. I'd love to start making this crochet blanket by Hannah Davis




 but.... still have not finished my knitted one with all those different squares. so I've talked myself into having to finish the knitted one first before starting on another big project.
here's 2


see the mistake? I should have made another thingemy on the last row before the rib, so will have to take that one out a bit

Only 7 squares to go now if i cheat and make it into a single blanket instead of a double., my fingers are itching to go and get the colourful wool for the crochet one.

still busy with my heritage album

Slowly but surely I'm working my way through the stack of photos.



these are just a few of them and they are not in chronological order, sometimes I'm working on something and then change my mind about the photo I want to use.
