Wip's post

So all the party things are back in the box, or trashcan.. 
Now it's time for some new project..


I wanne make some cowl scarfs.
A while back bought a new yarn, ByClair nr2...

I can tell you I'm addicted...... its so soft..... I love it 
It's 50% cotton 50% polyacrylic
It's for Hook 5/7. I used 9
All my years I have never looked with yellow. but this color I love so much.
It's ochreous (okergeel NL), just made single crochet stitches...


I bought two colors. also a red one. 
Went looking on my pinterest for a other pattern. Found one.
Bordeaux, such a beautifull color and pattern again.


My Criss Cross Vest is progressing very well 
Here you can see on the photo that I just started on the arm.
In real it's finished, next post will show you it

And i thought lets start a new big project
A shawl/wrap.. not really sure if I like it`, I will see.. if it's finished b the sumer, i'm happy.. hihihi

If you think I;m done with maing Wips.. ow no..
Next weekend it's Carnaval here, and Kira her Frozen dress of last year is to small.....
So a while back went to my Grandma to ask how to make it bigger. she gave me tips, and last night finally started 
First cut it open again
 Then 
My sweet friend the sewing machne came back on the table.

And as I wanted to make something with it 
I started a crochet crown of Elsa, perfect with the dress.

Next Friday it's Carnaval at school, so it will be finished .
Noah wanted to go as a Jedi like the other years, so no sewing :))))

My Clown outfit didn't survived the last time in the washing machine, so needs something new. and I thought lets make something
A beautifull red satin fabric... guess what i'm making??

In months I havent crafted much.. In a week I have done more then in 2 months.. hihi.



I'm off to bed, the alarm clock will go off tomorow ... way to early

Kira's party's.

Thank you all so much for the birthday wishes for Kira's birthday.
We / she had a lovely day.
Last friday was the kids party.
Some of you where very curious.. so let me show you what we all did.

First I wanne show a big ball of  yarn
Above Kira's part
Kira wanted to finger crochet a garland for her birthday, but after a meter it was hard to keep it up. So I promised Kira I would finish it, and as you see I did.
I hang it up together with some horse decoration we made togheter.
Can you see it, the small garland with the horses ?
It's so beautfull with the flag garland

* * * 

For the kidsparty we wanted to paint plaster ( don't know if thats the good Englisch word)
So I made some mold
Here you can see them done
Mostly horses, but also a few dino's for her boy friend and a dolphin for Noah.
It didn't look much, so I made it all again

Then on Friday at 12.00 we picked up all the kids. Kira asked 6 kids (5 girls, 1 boy), 1 girl was sick, so could not come.


First kids wanted to give there presents
I put there names in a balloon, so Kira could pick on and read there names

It was a lot of fun!!!

Then started with eating pancakes that i baked that morning, sorry no pic of the pancakes

after kids where playing, so we cleaned it out and put the first craft on the table.. 

Painting
We painted a canvas, and the molds, I glued it all together.
And after about 30 minutes the first finished pieces came.
Some make much work of there painting.
I so love to see it.
With my piece I saw the glue attracted totally in the plaster, so my beautifull horse broke on the floor in 3 pieces :(

(hubby was very creative too.... left below)
They where all so beautifull.
We played a few games, and went on to the next craft
making a bracelet with your name, or just some letters. What the kids wanted to make
I made one for me with both kids there name in it
After that we did somemore games, I printed out all kids of paper for coloring.
Then the party was on his end.
Kids and us had a blast.

* * * 
The that evening it was time to cook for the big party on Saterday.
I don't have pic's of all the food.
But most I have
 I made 2 apple-pie's 
 stuffed eggs
 Big quiche of veggies and bacon
Quiche of leek and shoarma

I also made tomato with mozzarella, a salad, stewed pears.
For the kids hotdog.


I also did one bad thing....... I ordered a cake ... yes I did..
But it was a very pretty one
A mother at school bakes cakes, in what you want. 
I asked purple, pink, frozen, unicorn and horses.
And look what she made!!! ♥
Kira was so happy with it
I always have a pic of the whipcream of the cake, but as I ordered the cake, we still had to make whip-cream.. also very yummy in coffee and on the apple pie.. hihihi

Kira had two awesome days.
She is spoiled rotten
Yesterday all day she was playing with her new toys, crafting he new crafts.
It was a great weekend!!!!!

* * * 

Today the kids had a extra day off of school, so we went away to a swimming pool
It was awesome

Hope you all have a great weekend! :)

Happy Birthday little Kira! ♥

Today 5 years ago, our lives where blessed with a baby girl.
I can't say often enough that time fly's by so fast.
It really does
When I was little I wanted to  be finally 16 , then wanted to be 18 so I could drive. 21 so I could do more.. etc etc etc..
But now. I wished time would stop......
But it doens't so..

Happy Birthday to Kira
♥ That this year all your dreams may come true ♥

I was making Kira crochet horses for her birthday, but as craft time suddenly is much shorter, I took my till late last night to finish them of.
But as Kira was screaming of happyness this morning it was all worth it.
The beginning of the white one

 2 finished body's and heads

and then the legs... Ow My what a work was that.. inc - dec - inc - dec.... on and on and on..
But at the end it really does look like a horse leg, and very pretty one..


Then the finishing pic
A unicorn and a brown stallion ♥
Kira asked for a unicorn with pink and purple hair.. so tadaa...
It's awesome to see what you can do this with crochet
and make a little girl so happy
Just went looking with the kids if they still where under the blankets it's -5 degrees here outside.
And this is what I saw
♥ ♥ ♥ cuteness overload ♥ ♥ ♥

Today at school she treat her classmates with 
apple-raisins cupcakes, yum yum.. we still have one now, baked 24 
very yummy
Here you can see he all dressed up as a birthday girl on the puple chair sitting next to her teacher eating a cupcake.
All the classmates sing so many songs for her. It's so great to see how they really give you the feeling that it's your birthday.

Noah gave us all a big scare.
He wanted to have the real skates, he went on the ice a away he was. lap after lap after lap.
I could not believe my eyes.
It was awesome.
Little Kira was a bit scared, but after a while also she tryed alone
When I see that picture of my, I need to think about one off my favorites movies : Iceprinses, at some time she is playing with he hand front back front back in the movie. When I see this pic I need to think about that part of the movie.
To bad just before I stopped my skates where flying infront, and I fell very hard on my bottom.
But still I had a awesome experience
