Pictures

Finally I made it to scan some pics. To bad I don't have a digital camera (yet).

Here's a snapshot of my WIP wisp :

The wisp is a pattern you can find for free @ knitty. Easy to make even for a beginning knitter. There are 9 pattern rows to follow and 6 rows garter stitch. just follow the link and start knitting ; )http://www.knitty.com/ISSUEsummer07/PATTwisp.html

I've also been working on some chuncky bird pages for the swap I'm hosting @ swapbot . I'm kind off hung at these chunkcky pages they are so much fun to do. The possibilities are endless and a little more challenging than ATC's. Who doesn't love birds.

My crochetted doll is almost finished has her buns and legs sewn on. Al she needs now is some more hair, her face poudered before she will show her to you ; )

Out of order

Hi,

 In an attempt at being more sportive and getting more excercice I hurt my right arm while inline skating. Nothing broken though, just an open wound which made it hard to do any crafting.

 So, the Knitty scarf hasn't progressed and neither has my crocheted doll. But as the wound is healing nicely I will make up for lost time soon and will be able to put some pictures of my projects online after the weekend.

If you feel like crafting yourself and love chunky pages/books, check out the Winter themed chunky book I'm hosting at the moment @ swapbot : http://www.swap-bot.com/swap/show/6724 The former swap hosted by Windchimes has been cancelled and I was really looking forward to making this one.

 Other Chunky swaps I'm hosting can be found here : http://www.swap-bot.com/swap/show/6021 (bird themed) and here: http://www.swap-bot.com/swap/show/6133 (Matroushka/Russian doll theme)

 If you like to receive and send Christmascards, don't forget to sign up for this swap : http://www.swap-bot.com/swap/show/6375

 Hope you will join me there. CU

S*itty - Knitty summer

If some of you might ever wonder what Belgium weather is like I would probably say whimsical. We've had some really nice weather last weekend-up  to 30°C but since tuesday temperatures dropped 'a little' or as much as 13.5°C. I even considered for a moment to look up my winter garment again.

But instead I found some yarn and knitting pens and casted on Knitty's Wisp.(free pattern). My version will be in lilac. Although purple tones aren't really my cup of tea I like the delicate look of it in this design. I'll try to post a picture soon.The pattern looks difficult but actually is rather simple. Great idea for a present as it knits easily and fast and looks so sophisticated.

Just heard the weather forecast for the weekend, it's warming up again, let's hope at least it won't rain.

WIP ANATOLIA

I'm working on Anatolia from Anapoulaoli at the moment. Found it on Etsy,you can buy the pattern here. It's a rather easy pattern to crochet, but I did have to adjust her head 'cause it turned out way to big.

This is what she should look like in the end ; ). My Anatolia still has to have her legs sewn on and her buns made. I'll be posting some pictures as soon as her cheeks are blushing .

My very first time

Hi,

I finally made it ! My very first blog entry ever. After reading so many wonderfull creative blogs I decided Ito give it a go and start my own.

Let me introduce myself. I'm Nathalie, 32 year, single, aunt of 2 wonderfull children and owner of my dearest Cosmo (a beagle)

I'm a working girl and in my free time I like to craft. Any kind of craft : knitting, crochetting, ATC's, chunky books, Caligraphy, quilting,...you name it.

In the time to come I hope to show you some of my art work and tell you something about every day life in Belgium.
