Monday, Tuesday.


Since there is not so much to photograph outside at the moment I am going to show some more  of the crafts I made during the years. Somebody asked what the knitting was for, well,  it is going to be a scarf.

I am decluttering big time  and I have to get rid of loads of stuff.  I have two big baskets full of  beautiful wool , from years back also so I thought I had better do something with it.  Too good to throw out. The little bag I crocheted last week of very thick wool I had for ages. I found an old one I made some  40 years ago , the colors then  were brown and green. Not nice. The pillow cover I started a few years ago , I just had to crochet a few more rounds of the silk yarn to finish it. I also found some granny squares here and there so I am going to make some more for an afghan or so.

The wool is beautiful, lovely colors. I am sure there is some place that would take donations. I do think it is good to declutter and downsize. Lovely mosaic! Have a happy week, Riet!

Madelief said...

Waar de winter al niet goed voor is! Zomers trekken we naar buiten en 's winters pakken we de haak- of breinaalden erbij :-) Succes met je plaid! Ik hoop dat je ons het resultaat laat zien.

Ik ben heel benieuwd naar je bureautje Riet. Zou je mij een foto en de afmetingen willen toesturen?

Een fijne nieuwe week!

Zo enorm leuk om jou prachtige creatie's hier te bekijken
lieve Rietje. Dat tasje is
toch heel schattig. Ende sjaal
die je aan het breien bent is
van een materiaal met een GROOT

Het ziet er zo heerlijk zacht en
aangenaam uit.

Geniet van een heerlijke week,

Veel liefs,

Wat een leuk tasje Riet maar ben helemaal weg van die vrolijke kleurtjes van de sjaal die je nu onder handen hebt. Lekker zacht!
Wordt vervolgd ...

You've been busy. I'm trying to work through my stash of yarn too. Love the tea cup!

Unknown said...

Wow not only are you a great photographer but pretty crafty also. I have two grands going into the same college this year. Just started an afghan each for them in their college colors. Scarlet and silver. Going to do the ripple. I love the look and feel of the yarn.

I love sitting knitting on a cold winter day, beautiful projects. Gorgeous scarf, the colours are wonderful.

~Lavender Dreamer~ said...

I love the beautiful bag that you made and that stack of quilts. I need to use my fabric and get busy sewing. It's time to see what I should get rid of, too!

Pondside said...

It must be lovely to work with so much colour at this dull time of year. Good for you for de-cluttering and enjoying what you have!

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

You are just wayyy too talented! Those are lovely.

Shane Pollard said...

LOVe all those colours Riet.
It's wonderful to make something beautiful out of your old wool1

Looking at the treasures in your pictures and reading about if felt as if wrapped in warmth on a cold February morning!

Thank you,

Beautiful wools! I have have been cleaning out and organizing since the first of the year as well.

Juliëtte said...

Nou je hebt het er maar druk mee!
Mooie werkstukjes hoor!!
Wat moeten we anders doen met dat winterse weer!
Lekker freubelen.

Veel liefs, Juliëtte

Leuk al die wolwerkjes. Ik heb vroeger ook heel veel gebreid, maar opeens was het over, wolwinkels verdwenen, maar nu komt het weer terug. Moet ook nog twee zakken met wol hebben.

Life Images by Jill said...

it is so good to declutter. I must do it too! But even better to finish projects long forgotten. I love the crochet bag you made. I recently gave bags of wool and material to our local aged-persons home for their crafts.
Have a wonderful week.

klaproos said...

lina@happy family said...

Wonderful stuffs; you're so creative. I wish I can knit.

SmilingSally said...

Sometimes it's good to be snowed in. Look at the wonderful things you've rediscovered!

I love those blues; thanks for sharing.

Happy Blue Monday, Riet.

Ann said...

Your bag is so lovely. I think I must get busy too decluttering.

Karen said...

It's always fun to find old treasures. A lovely collage!

Pie said...

Wonderful pics.

Lorrie said...

You do beautiful work, Riet. It's always good to use up stuff from one's stash, isn't it? I'm trying to do the same thing - use what I have before getting more.

Faye said...

What a creative way to spend some cold winter days. All those colors in the purse just make me happy. In fact, last fall I almost bought a shoulder bag with these same colors--brand Le Sac, I think it was.

Jackie said...

Beautiful...just absolutely beautiful. I love that tea cup!

Happy day!

Nice Collage. Good to see.

Diana Taylor said...

I love your mosaic, the pictures are so pretty - such a lovely cushion cover, and the teacup is beautiful - I like the effect you've done on the mosaic to give it a vintage look with the hazy edges - beautifully done.

Hootin' Anni said...

Fantastic craft work Riet...I too posted about crocheting today.

Happy Ruby Tuesday.
