Five on Friday: good to be back!





Hello lovelies!
Long time ago, again... I am so sorry for my long absence every time but I am 
so distracted by other things, and there is Instagram as well.
It's so much quicker and easier to drop a photo and a line a day by just using your phone.
Makes me a bit lazy I guess....

Anyway, as you can see, I switched to English again because that translate button makes
a mess of translating and all you get is some rubbish pile of words!
Well, even more than my own effort to do so :-).

Of course lots of things happened in the meantime and I will pick a few random things that 
I like to share with you.

Number one has to be our new addition to the cat family!



Her name is Wiske and we got her from an animal rescue centre.
She and her mum and siblings were discovered on a farm and taken to the animal shelter.
Wiske was in a foster home for a while to get her used to people and their behaviour and now she 
is a very lovely little girl to have around.







I have to say we couldn't have done it without Catoo!
She is so sweet with Wiske and learnt her everything she can and cannot do in this household.
Pippi on the other hand is really bossy and still goes her own way.
But that's perfectly allright, she never really liked other cats anyway, 
she just tolerates them.





On number two some crochet, potholders to be precise.
I really liked making them and they are already in good use in the kitchen!
If you like to make them too, here is where you can find the pattern.
I think this one is only in Dutch, but there are numerous patterns like this available
for free on the internet, also in English.





Number three is some more crochet, a scarf this time!
It's that time of year again to wrap up in something warm...
It has to be a lot colder first before I wear this one though.
It's made from merino wool; 
I dyed it myself, then carded it, spun it, twined it and finally
I could crochet this scarf, phew! 
I loved the whole process, it's really fun to do it all.
Because I didn't quite knew how much wool I had in the end I just made this pattern
up as I went; fortunately I really like the result!






Number four I'd like to show you is something I felted and embroidered.




It's also for sale, by the way ;-).




And as the last subject I choose some garden(related) pictures.
We are still so lucky with the weather!









Wishing you a wonderful weekend dearies!
And thank you so much Amy for making Five on Friday possible 
every time!

  9. Thanks so much for a lovely post! I admire what you have shown us, and I too, have enjoyed processing wool and crocheting with it. Your hoop creation is so pretty, and I have never done any sort of felting on purpose, or done much embroidery either, so I especially admire your skill.

  13. Beautiful images! I giggled when I saw the first image ... your new kitty on top of your lovely afghans. Fun! All your kitties are beautiful ... cats are special, aren't they?! Your crochet is lovely and to dye your own wool ... wow! The little bird is precious. You are very talented ... so many lovely "needle-arts". Your garden is lovely. Enjoy and have a great week!

  14. What a good thing of you, to rescue Wiske!
    I have got 4 cats, not from a rescue centre, but they came to our house theirselves, homeless and hungry. You get so much love from those poor cats!
    Nice pictures again, all of them!
    And welcome back ;-)
    Have a nice day, Sigrid

    1. Ha lieve Lizette, maak je vooral geen zorgen, ik blog 'gewoon' niet zoveel meer.....
      Insta kun je ook zo bekijken, alleen kun je geen commentaar achterlaten als je zelf geen account hebt.
      Heel erg bedankt voor je bezoek en lieve commentaar weer, dat waardeer ik heel erg!
      Groetjes van Mirjam.
