Something old, something new

Hello all,

How are you doing with this summer weather ?
We are loving it very much, We have seen much rain, so now we have a green garden again, and not a brown one like weeks ago.

Yes everythings has a good and bad side.. hihi :))
Last week it was Kids-Vacation-Week here. In the Netherlands we have that in almost every town.
You start with building a hut, and then paint it with all the kids in town togheter
Next to that you can also craft a lot.
here you can see how good the kids where building and painting.
I have so many more pic, also of them crafting. The did a lot with a hammer and nails, paint. But inside a big tent alsp with glue, glitter, colors and so much more.. . you name it. Noah and Kira loved it all, outside crafting and inside.. We also eat there , in the middle a picture of the kids warming there bread on a long BBQ, and when it was good you put something yummy in it.
As you se I was also there. I helped every day, and on the last day I painted the faces of the kids, here I was making a spiderman.. I made many Spidermans.
There was a lot of rain, but the kids had so much fun. they really loved it

~  Something old ~

Back in March I think I made small gifts for Rita's her boys.
She gave birth to a really cute boy, and the older one also needed a gift.
As I lost 6 months of picures ( from okt 2014 till march 2015), I really need to look on all apps and on the web where I shown people what I was making ( thank goodness that I do that). and I found some pic's back.
For the little one I made this cute Giraffe
 I put a little sounds in it

I got this cute picture from Rita, there where very glad with it =))))

Then for the big brother.
I know he likes Jake from teh Neverland pirates.
I didn't had a pattern, but I do had a pattern of a cute basic bear that I could use for it that is standing in my side window
I looked up a great photo of Jake and started to crochet
 and Jake came alive

 Gave him a jacket and done he was. ♥
Isn't he cute???
And all that hair, a real boy toy.
Noah saw it and also wanted one.. 
But mommy as always to busy with a million things, so it hasn't come that far..........

~ something new ~

Kira was playing in her Elsa ( Frozen) dress, and something was missing.
Noah had fun with his old Duplo.
She needed a crown!!!!!
I have pinned so much, but never made one. So the first one crawled on my crochet needle
As you see Kira is very happy with it.
Now she ordered a blue one, with white hair like Elsa....
She has to wait bt before teh end of the year she will have it, as it was on my to-do list for this year.

From 2 pieces of yarn I started to make a summer scraf
with crochet hook 9mm, so really big stitches are it,
It's white with a bit of silver with paillettes.
Don't know if I will like it and wear it, but love the yarn, and otherwise Kira can wear it, when she wanne bee a princes again.. hihihi

I don't have something blue, but I do have something green to show you 

 Here do I sit , my little corner.. where I love to craft

 and look look... I have very very small tomatoes on my very very small plant

Your gifts for Rita's kids are very cute!!:) I have to try amigurumi but I don't like sewing small parts. Love Kira's crown:)
Nice to see kids having a fun vacation time. I love your garden full of flowers and that's a wonderful place to sit and craft. I wish I had a garden area like that but living in a metro city, independent houses are very expensive. And those which are in suburban areas are too far from the school and workplace.

Kindjes waren vast superblij.
En een mooie kroon voor je prinsesje!

R2D2 is definitely taking shape!! It looks great already :)
Love the little pirate finish too, you're a pro with your little hook :D

Love how Kira is now 'ordering' pieces from you. Nice to have your own personal crafter! I can see why she would want a crown in more colors. And good for you doing that pirate without a pattern!

What a fun day with all the kids. Bet you were tired of face painting by the end.

Beautiful garden. Enjoy the rest of the summer while it's here!

Love Jake the Pirate, I can see why Noah wanted one too!!
