I started cross stitching when I was 12 years old, in the back of the car on our way to somewhere in France. I torned some magazine pages with small designs an happily stitched the whole way. I loved working on it and see the little strawberries and flowers appear, only they looked a bit […]

mijn-creatieve-hobby-2011-nr-2

I designed some sunny items for an outdoor picknick with the Eline’s Huis fabric Meadow, buttons, and lace.  You can find them, with a work description, in the Dutch craft magazine ‘Mijn Creatieve Hobby‘. It feels so funny and exciting to see my name in a magazine :-)

I just so looooove swapping. The bit of birthday nerves I used to have when I was young, wondering what I would get. Those same tinkeling nerves I feel when I know a package is on it’s way to me. A while ago I set up a magazine swap with Clare from the Lulu Carter […]
