Although the weather has been very sunny and warm the past weeks, I keep working every day on my Christmas sampler. It's a bit strange to sew edelweisses and snowy trees at this time of year.

And since we're back home, I'm working every day to switch my children's room.
Girl's room has become ...

boy's room, and vice versa.

Since my son is away from home a lot for his studies, my daughter dreams to turn his room into hers. Because it's a lot bigger and she needs a big desk for Art School projects and painting.
So now I am moving furniture, painting, cleaning and reorganizing like mad.
A new room asks for a new crocheted plaid, I wanted it bright and colourful, like the flowers and berries at this time of year.

We had two weeks of nice weather at the Belgian coastside... Reading, walking, inviting friends, staring at the sea...

And a weekend in Kampen, a cute little town in the Netherlands.

Then a quick visit to Amsterdam, city of bikes, boats, bridges...

...and tiles.

On the way home yesterday evening:
