Come autumn The Katsura tree offers fiery leafs.
Brilliantly red or orange or yellow.
Newly knitted socks...

Details here, I have my very own Ravelry account now. Ravelry has -despite it's rather plain-'n-simple looks- dazzling technological links and a vast library of patterns, how stunning. I'm a bit overwhelmed.
-very special thanks to Kirsten for technical support :-)

More snaps in flickr too, a warm (hee) welcome to my my 'sock basket'.

Happy week now all

Making again

I made some kimono pinafores again.

It had been a while.
I wish I had more time to make little dresses, I so so enjoy it.
Anyway, they are here.
The 'berry' bouquet was a gift from Gabriel.
Very bright red. He knows me pretty well I guess.

A cure for cold(s)

It was cold cold cold last week.

The kids got colds.
The mum and dad got colds.
The kids got sick and didn't sleep at night.
The mum especially got a bit grumpy and tired.
The older daughter wondered if the dollies needed dresses, warm dresses.
The mum
sewed tiny dresses, skirts and tops
and knitted little vests and a wee shrug.
Then all was a little better.

Little notes :
-more details on the little knits here, here and here.
-the dollies don't really have names, they are just 'Dolly'.
-the little blonde used to be mine when I was little, my mun gave it to Lieveke when we last visited.
-the little blonde is Noor's favorite, I think because she is very baby-like.

Keep it warm friends
