Early Autumn Walk....

Today my youngest sister and I took a  walk through a nearby piece of woodland called Amelisweerd (in Bunnik, Utrecht)
The weather was wonderful and  the scenery too! Everything was still very green and at first we mentioned it was not autmny enough, but soon we began to see all kinds of beautiful mushrooms everywhere.
I Always love to see how the sunlight shines through the leaves!
After about an hour we visited a little cafe.
Coffee  and date and walnut cake on the left, carrotcake and tea on the right.
On the way back to our bicycles we took a peak at the organic flower and vegetable garden. Stupid enough I was so in "ahw" , I forgot to make an overall picture
Just part of it
When we walked past a few rows of chard (snijbiet) I saw how the sun set the red stems alight and of course I did take a picture of this! Isn't it amazing? No colour enhancement or photoshop!!
It was a lovely morning indeed!!

Too long overdue!!! A little update.

Has it really been 3 months since I updated my Blog? How time flies. Summer has come and gone and Autumn is setting in with rain and more rain.
September 14th I booked a stall at a fair in my neighbourhood and it was a sad affair. I barely sold anything and I had reduced the prices of many articles. I had small cute things for very little prices.
But I could not tempt the public. People tend not to buy anything when the weather isn't helping a bit.
It drizzled, with now and then a little dry spell. But when gusts of winds blew my items across the stall I gave in and put everything in the plastic containers and went home.

It was such a letdowm that I haven't crocheted even one stitch since. I've got stock enough. And to think I made many lovely sets of coasters.


 Autumn Colours
I even made a set of Halloween coasters
I didn't set up the stall as I Always do (with white, long tablecloth like sheets) because everything became wet from the rain. I used a plastic cover sheet to line the stall table.
The sign in the background is from the stall behind me. It promotes a political party.
My helper in the stall, 14 year old niece Emma
Some details on the stall

The heart earrings were made by Emma

Now I want to concentrate on more season related items and I really have make some more items for the fashion industry (for dolls that is LOL)
For LittleFee
For Lati and PukiFee
And of course for Blythe Dolls
Well, that's it for now. I will be back soon. Things to do!!
I'll keep you posted (more often I hope)
