string-orchestra for the first time. Practise all day and a performance for the parents in the end of the afternoon. These moments completely make up for all those annoying ones! Goosebumps, seeing two daughters play there. To pass time during the day, A and I went into the city of Eindhoven and discovered a wonderful lunchroom called 'onder de leidingstraat'.
pide from the cookbook Veggiestan. Very easy to make, especially with my bread-baking-machine at hand for the kneading. Unfortunately I forgot to add salt to the dough. Which was a little bit compensated by the delicious salted butter my husband brought from France a few weeks ago. But I still would add salt next time I'll bake this bread. And I will because I love this Turkish bread.
cinnamon cake, lime cake and go to an old church filled with trampolines for my birthday party. Many of her wishes were fulfilled, but I think you can guess which ones weren't.
Grafisch Atelier offers me ample opportunities to spend my money right away. On my first day I met Jan de Bie, the artist that made this beautiful linocut artwork, who came in to sign this series before they went off to the museumshop. I love his work! Number 1 of 25 already found its way to our living room. And for our youngest, because she likes to be seen, I bought this small work of Marieke Peters. A work of Willemijn van Dorp, who's also working and always experimenting in the Grafisch Atelier, is now high on my list of must-haves. But first work some more. Here you can find more work of artists working there. Maybe you'll find something you like!
mrs Lightbluegrey when we went there for a visit. The last one stays with us.
fishtail braid. This tutorial shows how to braid with three colours. For some, I used four colours and that worked out perfectly too.
set of tissue pouches and one of them is in my handbag all the time. Lovely project for small scraps of fabric. I used my screenprinted constellation fabric. Would you like learn how to screen-print too? The Grafisch Atelier in Den Bosch has some spots available at the crash course (april 16th) and basic course (may 9th, 23rd and 30th) in screen-printing.
Ferm Living plant box was on my wish-list for some time. Not cheap for a plant box though and not something necessary. So it had to wait. But now it's here. Such a good addition to our seventies house without window-sills. The new constellation in the living asked for another item. A knotted plant-hanger. Just 5 minutes of work and very easy to make.
