Parakeet

When I was about seven years old, I got my first parakeet. A lot of parakeets followed to replace one another, due to our four cats.
The last one I had could escape after his cage was accidentally knocked over by me, while I took him outside to enjoy the nice weather. After that, it was enough.
But while birds really are not my favorites in the world of fauna, I have a bit (a tiny bit) of a soft spot for this noisy, mess making birds. The crocheted type is a better alternative.

You can find this pattern here!

iiFiesta!!

In augustus we celebrate my daughters birthday, as always. I haven't thought about a theme yet, but after seeing a doily in different colors, I got the idea to make just half doilies and make a garland of them. Not very humble, but I love the result!

Summer Skirts

Just this week I made the first sewn items for this summer: two skirts for my daughters. Before, I didn't feel like sewing at all and it was only after purchasing Gertie's new sewing book, named Gertie Sews Vintage Casual, that I wanted to make her Sailor Shorts and bought not only fabric for the shorts but also for skirts for my daughters. They're just simple circle skirts, nothing difficult.




I will show you the shorts another time, because it's not finished yet. I will be on vacation next week, so let's hope I can wear it by then. I have three weeks off (officially, but I've been at home for almost three months now because of some knee surgery with chondropicking, so seas of free time lay behind me).

The first week of our holidays we will spend in our own country, near our NP Hoge Veluwe, so let's pray for nice weather (not something man can be sure about in The Netherlands). 
The next two weeks we will go to my most favorite place in the world: Menorca. Since I was five years old I came there almost every year, so maybe it's just nostalgia, but after seeing lots of other destinations, I still think Menorca is the prettiest of all.

Of course I will show you pictures afterwards. Although I'm two destinations behind, I think. Did I show you pictures of our trips to Paris, France and Antwerp, Belgium?

Dream Catcher

 A friend of mine has a little life style shop and sells pretty feathers (among other stuff of course). I really wanted some, so I bought a couple for later use. On my way home I came along a house with five dream catchers behind the windows and although I think five is four too much, I had my idea for the feathers: crochet a dream catcher! I added some beads and here it is:

Made one for a friend's daughter, too.
