pineapple love affair

wood & wool pineapple rugwood & wool pineapple rug wood & wool pineapple rug

The pineapple rug is finished! (the plume of the pineapple seemed endless...)

I happen to have a soft spot for pineapples (that you will have noticed)

During the making of the pineapple pillow, I immediately had in mind to begin a major pineapple project.

The spools of fabric yarn in perfect colors were already 'waiting' in the cabinet.
Hey, I mean a lilac plume, what could be more beautiful?

Do you feel like freshen up your place with a pineapple rug?
You can find the pattern in my E T S Y shop.

All you need is 5 spools of fabric yarn, a 12 mm crochet hook and within a few weeks you will have a fruity rug on the floor. (plus free biceps workout)

Er zijn nog een paar plaatsen beschikbaar voor de haakworkshop in het huiskamer-restaurantje van Nobel's Brood, a.s. dinsdag 24 maart van 9:00 tot 11:30 uur.

De prachtige bakkerswinkel is gevestigd in een eeuwenoud pand aan één van de mooiste straten van Dordrecht, Grotekerksbuurt 53.
De workshop is voor dames (en heren) die de haakbeginselen al beheersen en van mij nog wel wat nieuwe haak trucjes willen leren.
Nobel's Brood zorgt voor vrolijke bloemen, 2 warme dranken voor iedereen en iets zoets. Ik zorg voor een haaknaald (deze mag je houden) en wol.
Uiteraard mag je jouw eigen haak-project van die ochtend mee naar huis nemen om (eventueel) thuis af te maken.

Kosten: € 17,50 per persoon.

Zin om mee te doen?

Meld je dan snel aan via de w e b s h o p van Nobel's Brood.

The strange thing about my love for green is, I'm crazy about flowers and am not too fond of plants.

The temporary beauty of a bunch of flowers on the table, you can enjoy them for a week and then it's done, away with it on to the next.
Houseplants however, are just standing there and it makes me 'nervous' eventually.
Although I love plants in the garden, also houseplants.
So yesterday, when I bought a new bunch of flowers I couldn't resist this plant and decided to adopt it, for the time being in the house and maybe within a few weeks it can move to the garden...

Green touches everyone and everything, especially this time of the year.

pineapple rug

pineapple rug

Remember T H I S?

The pineapple on the floor is now about halfway up the plume and i’m in love with all of it!
The colors, the p a t t e r n, the textural appearance, even the structure resembles a real pineapple.

Still not sure whether the pineapple will end on the wall or on the floor.
I imagine it will look smashing upon the wall, however a pineapple rug is an option too, because the fabric feels so soft to bare feet...
