Jeroen Bosch has died. This will be celebrated with a large exhibition of his work. Many activities are leading up to that grande finale. Last weekend we went to see 'the world of Jeroen Bosch'. A festival reviving the time of this great painter. The girls didn't want to go at first, but I persuaded them by telling that there would be birds of prey. Gave me the chance to finally have a peak into the Hieronymus Bosch art center. All his work in high quality replica's. Unfortunately there are no originals left in the city where Bosch has been born and lived all his life (most of them are in Spain). We'll have to wait till 2016.
storybook buntings, ready to be send in a handmade envelop with a handmade label. All done before, but turned out pretty nice this time.
Madeleines de Commercy (replaced absent lemon by mandarin) and very easy Mini Pecan cakes (the smaller version in financiers mold).
Librivox or the 'Luisterbieb' app. While listening I crocheted nets for holding peanuts for the birds. But I think they're actually far to stylish for that purpose. They look more like pretty present pouches to me.
these cute cats. Mine look more like owls though, but that's ok too. To me, stringing the card cats is a very mindful activity. Organising thoughts in the same time.
Ingthings I found these crochet fingerless mittens and made a pair for each daughter. Easy, quick and beautiful.
buttercup pattern and enlarged it to fit a water bottle, the snack box and her lunch box. The denim bag is lined with an african print. Specially for the girl that is already talking about travelling to Africa since she is three (no idea where that came from). She has to wait a while (say till she's at least 18 :-D) for that to happen, but a bit of her African dream is in the bag already.
