Granny squares and a vintage bag.


A friend gave me a big cone with creme soft wool.

When I saw it I thought of a soft baby blanket. So I'm making squares and must say I love doing it. Every spare(??) minute I make another square.



And from the fabric that I bought 2 weeks ago in the second hand shop I made this vintage bag for my shop. You never have enough tote bags I think, they are so use full for all sorts of things.

Gorgeous tote bag Lien, I must admit I am a bag addict, it is a pity that we can not carry more than two or three at once....yes I am addicted.As for the Granny squares i love them, that colour is perfect for a baby blanket. I hope your shop is going well, it is a pity I can not visit it in person, maybe some day.In the mean time I am very happy to call by virtually. Hugs, Margie.

I saw a similar baby blanket today on a little boys pushchair and admired it from a distance...I'm sure yours will be show stopping!!

The tote is totally desirable ...my sisters and I used to buy dresses made out of that material years ago...they are so hard to find nowadays it's such a shame:(

Introducing

This is the first time that I write in my blog.
I am Jacoline, me and my family emigrated to New Zealand from The Netherlands 3 years ago.
I can tell you, we went through some hard times in those 3 years, but we found our dream.

We bought a lovely home close to the beach. I spend a lot of time in our garden which has a lot of fruit trees, a nice vegetable garden and great flowers.

I love to shop in secondhand shops and garages sales are the best invention ever.
My days are filled with craft, cooking , baking and of course my 3 girls.
I try to have a beachwalk every day and on wednesday I join the quilt club.

We are still busy with rebuiling the house to make it a great home.
We like traveling and like to discover our new country.
I keep you updated with new stories, recipes, ideas and pictures every week.
