Is a trip to Marrakech on your bucket list?

But you rather not travel alone? This is your chance!
With a group of super nice participants from all over Europe, you will have the time of your life! We have place for only one participant in April.
During the Cool Crochet workshop, you stay in riad Chambres d'Amis in the middle of the Medina in Marrakech.
You will discover the colorful city in a very special and adventurous way.
We will bring you to the most wonderful places and yes, we will crochet 'in between' in the coolest places.
How about a daytrip to the Atlas Mountains?
Furthermore we take you to wool heaven in the Souk (don't forget to save some space in your suitcase, for it's a bargain to bring wool from the Souk)

Click H E R E and send me a mail, if you think this is about you.

wool on wood

wood & wool harlequin blanket

Is it a stained glass window?

Is it a painting?

No, it's wool on wood.
A handmade harlequin blanket stuck on wood.

You can made this multicolored blanket with wool leftovers.

It's fun to do. All harlequins are simple small projects.
You can make the blanket with all types of yarn and in any size you want.

The harlequin pattern is available HERE.

100% wool

wood & wool cabinet

Dille & Kamille (dill & chamomile) is one of my favorite Dutch concept stores.
The wonderful mix of sustainable products, all with a natural simplicity, are timeless.

It's simply impossible for me to leave the Dille & Kamille shop without buying anything.

I've bought some 100% wool balls in their shop in Rotterdam some weeks ago.
I chose the nude colors, but they are all very pretty.

Although I'm still working on the black knitted sweater dress, I started a 100% wool crochet-side-project today.
The balls were calling, from the cupboard on my desk, when I was working ;)
