Four Pillows in a Row - Candy Cushion

And here is the fourth in the row of four pillows (after the Dahlia, Harlequin Tapestry and Shiny Stars), although I'm already busy with a fifth. The pattern is also from Haken en Kleur (Crochet and Color, order here

And here they are all together!

Twinkle, Twinkle

For my kitchen I made some decoration from crocheted stars, that matches the banner I made a couple of months ago.

Four Pillows in a Row - Shiny Stars

After making two other pillows, namely the Dahlia and the Harlequin Tapestry, here's my third one: the Shiny Stars.

Actually it's a pattern for a blanket from the book Haken en Kleur (Crochet and Color in Dutch, you can order the book at this site) again, but I used a smaller hook, thinner yarn and less stars to create a pillow instead of a blanket.


I bought this cute bird in Lanzarote as a souvenir.

Rancho Texas

As you could read yesterday we went to Lanzarote, one of the Canary Islands, a group of islands belonging to Spain. One of the highlights there, although not typically Lanzarotic, or even Spanish, was Rancho Texas. Rancho Texas is a very small zoo, but it all looks so very well preserved and has so much detail, that it's the gem of the island, I think. An oasis in the somewhat dry and colorless surroundings that the volcanic island of Lanzarote is.

I could make some nice animal pictures, as you can see here.


Colorful Cameleons. 
The one below is just about to catch a larvae with its very large tongue.
