Endings & Beginnings

For five years now I have been a part of this magic place called Blogland! I have written my posts regularly, sometimes on a daily basis and I have enjoyed sharing my thoughts and creative adventures with you all. Through my blog I have made new friends from all over the world and have been inspired to try out new crafts and techniques. I have participated in all kind of events like OWOH, Feltunited, In war someone has to die and International Yarnbombing Day, which I probably wouldn’t have done hadn’t I followed their blogs.

I have loved every day of it but have decided that it will come to an end. My blogging days are over maybe not for ever but at least for now. I feel both relieved and sad. It’s a big part of my life that won’t be there anymore. But writing a blog is time-consuming and I want to devote my time to develop as an artist. My head is full of exciting ideas and projects –I want to take up painting, try out embroidery on new mediums, maybe buy a knitting machine ….I might start a web shop, give workshops, write a book or sell my stuff on Etsy,….I just wont write a Blog anymore!

I have loved meeting you all!

Spring cleaning

This weekend I did the spring cleaning of the country house, scrubbing the floors and dusting spider web from the wooden beams. Although we usually travel down over the day during winter the cleaning is the “official” opening of the house for the spring season. There is something so very special about the smell of soap on wooden floors. The smell is full of promises of the glorious summer days that will be spent there.

I finished the cleaning by laying out my newly washed rag carpets. I love rag carpets and I often fantasize about the fabric that have been used. Is there someone’s favorite dress among it somewhere I wonder? I especially love the pattern on my rag carpet in the kitchen. Some of it made is from old panty hoses. A jumble sale bargain for a mere 6 euro.
