I have been busy.

So I've been busy making Easter branches. I've collected a few branches, let them dry out a week or two. Then I gave them two coats of (chalk) paint and stuck them in a vase.
I crocheted a veeeery long garland and decorated the branches. I thought it still was very bare, so I made BIG flowers to dangle from the branches as well and they look great (If I do say so myself)
Easter Branches

No more news on the Olympic front unfortunately. I am so eager to have more information, but nothing of it yet.

But  there is news on the crochet front.
I have made also two new Key Covers and three Birdhouses. This all for my shop.
People actually ask me to make more, so for now it is in stock.

I also sell the patterns at and for Dutch versions at  Copyright 2012

Today I have the day off, but I am working the following days. I'm planning to bake cupcakes for work (since tomorrow is a bit of a festive day) and decorate them with whipped cream and a sprinkle of crushed yellow and green meringue.  I will post pictures when I have finished them.

...................................It is now two days later and I totally forgot to make pictures of the finished meringues. I can tell you everybody enjoyed them immensely though.


  1. I absolutely love your Birdhouses!!!

  2. I want everything Adrianne, they are all so beautiful. Another link between us is we have the same painted wood wall. Look at the picture of my studio wall.
    Happy Easter.

  7. Hi,

    Sorry, not yet. I have the pattern in my head and I dread to write it down and make pictures(so much work). As soon as I
    Do so, however, I will think of you.

    Best wishes,

    PS; If you like I can also make one in the exact colours you want.
    There are two left for sale in my webshop;


  8. Hi,

    Guess what! I have (nearly) finished the pattern of a birdhouse. It needs some more pictures but is already available in my webshop!! When you order you'll receive the pattern in a PDF file within 48 hours!
    Thought you'd like to know this!
    I started at 2 p.m. and it is now 11 pm! Phew! I have to go to bed, because I have to work tomorrow. But I'll finish the last details when I come home.
