This were the very first craft books I had as a child. I did try to make things out of this books, but I remember it wasn't a big success. Somehow my work always ended up in a mess of threads.
I still like these books a lot, it's impossible to buy things like this anymore, or it has to be secondhand... Or japanese...
I guess people in Belgium do not have a need for craft books or magazines.

Lovely red strawberries, my first of the season!
My favourite colour scheme, I found this nice picture in a dutch culinary magazine, Delicious. Nice recipies too.
Nice colours, maybe to make a blue felted bunnie?
Something I can not resist: drawing materials, especially colour pencils and pastels.
I really like this Beatrix Potter story, it's a bit scary.
Beatrix Potter is my alltimes favourite illustrator, since the day I got "Tom Kitten" when I was 8 years old. I went to see the movie "Mrs. Potter", it disappointed me because Renee Zellweger played the main part. I should have preferred a british actress in this role. But I thought the landscapes were stunning!
And this Jeremy Fisher belongs to my daughter!

My new drawing challenge: the breakfast table. I'm not an early bird at all, so I guess this will be a hard week for me!
By the way, this blog was made by 2 friends who like to get up early!
And this one is nice too, beautiful watercolours and yummie pictures of breakfasts in Paris.
My first finished project in needle felt. It's still very difficult to sculpt it the way I have in mind, I hope that this will get better with some practise! I made the dress using a tutorial by Mollychicken.
