Years ago I was a member of "Tour de Cuisine". We were a group of 5 artists from Deventer and we all had a passion for cooking. So we decided to organize a dinnerparty (5 course meal) only for friends. It ended up that we had to cook for 100 people and had about 30 volunteers to help us during the evening. And we did present the courses in an artistic way. We had an Apron fashion show, there was Darwin's dinner in a cupboard, a garden centre were you could get salads and 3 trollies full of desserts and the start of the evening was a procession with students dressed in rags on the Requiem from Mozart... Was ofcourse great fun to do, a lot of work but something to rember. We were young, just left artschool and full of energy. We did 2 more in the following 2 years but after that the magic was gone and the challenge wasn't there anymore.. I made clothes for all 3, learned a lot and I am so happy I have done those things.But we always kept contact with eachother and Agn…

My plan to write every week at least 1 entry has failed last week. This afternoon I came home early (only 2 lessons this morning) and after searching for sock patterns on Ravelry (where would be without dear RAV??) time to write an entry.Last week Bram and myself went to a new cardilogist and to our surprise he was a real HUMAN BEING!! So we had along talk about what had happened in the past and he showed us all results from tests done previously. His plan was to do some more tests (till now nothing is wrong according the tests) and if he can't find anything we have to go to the vascular surgeon and if he can't find anything we are going to the neurologist and if he also can't find anything we are going to another hospital (yes it is a lot of "and" in this sentence!). It will take some time but we hope they will find the reason why Bram's mobility is so bad. We really want to know the reason and if nothing can be done about it so be it and than we will tak…

No, I am not OUT... but the the book: "YARNBOMBING"is OUT NOW!!!! The idea for this really great book is by Mandy Moore and Leanne Prain (you've done a great job Girls!) Packed full of of photos from wonderfull objects and great ideas for "soon to be yarn bombers". Published byArsenal Pulp Press based Canada and for a cheap $ 13.57 it is really worth every penny or Eurocent as we say here in Holland.But... the best of this book is that our Project: Knitted Landscape is featured in it on many pages:We were asked last year by Mandy and Leanne to contribute to this book and ofcourse we said yes to that opportunity. Because it doesn't happen often that your photos are published in a book. Seeing your photos printed in a real book gives a strange feeling after the first glance at them (you get used to that feeling very soon) but I think they really are good photos and we are both in a way proud that we are IN! The book is really well writtten and also the interv…
