About a year ago my friend Ilse picked up her crochet needle, after more than twenty years. It wasn't long before she made her first dog. Next an amazing blanket, followed by a rug, more dogs, cats, bears and lots and lost of colourful bunting and pillow cases.
Together we roam haberdashery stores and thrift stores, in search of yarn and vintage and contemporary textiles, which she uses for her creations. She is not only a sweet friend, but a source of inspiration to me as well. Below you can see some of the pillow cases she made for my garden house.
Ilse opened up an Etsy shop recently. Please have a look at the lovely things she makes! Her shop is called 'Eigenhandig'.
Wishing you all a happy weekend! We have a plant fair at our allotment complex tomorrow, with a cookery workshop (garden produce only), music and several stalls. Hope it will be dry and fun!
