Tas-Ka pillows & bedding

I finished the Tas-Ka bedding for both gamins,
2 times simple covers in 1 kind of Tas-Ka fabric (here).

For the pillows, I chose the same technique and effect as I did with the black&white items (here).

Just to add a little extra detail to the sofa and their beds ;-)

New schoolstuff in black&white

Guess who chose these new fabrics?!

Right, he did.

Although he still likes his pirates-collection (here),
he decided it was time to get every detail in his life in B&W, or grey ;-)

Love how our gamins develop their own style and feel so good at their own selves.

Home alone.
Rain and sun at the same time, outside.
Silence, inside.
Just taking some pictures here and there.

Arranging the 2 peacock feathers, our boy collected on his way back home.

Reading some fine recipes and stories.

Thinking of what we shall eat later on, 
while time ticks on and on
and my coffee drips slowly into the Italian espressomaker.

I wish all days would last a little longer...

but for now I do like watching time tick by on my new watch, a perfect gift from my love...

New pillows * in black&white & grey

This week I made some new cushioncovers,
mostly in black and white.

I love the combination of different b&w fabrics...

but the personalised pillow I made in the softest grey linnen and the name of the newborn written in silver,
is still my favorite ;-)

Living by the water * Gamins in yellow

At the end of the day, we like to take the kids out for a walk in the woods and by the water.
The sun goes down slowly and the landscapes change into peaceful stills.
Not a soul around.

Vide-dressing * Cleaning out our closets

* Vide-Dressing *

* Cleaning out our closets *

Ik schreef het hier al over mijn stoffenkast...
nu ik door de lente- en zomercollectie ga van de gamins,
vind ik veel mooie (merk)kledij,
die helaas te klein werden.

Ik zal ze op een aparte pagina op mijn blog,
te koop zetten,
klik hier.

Hier al een kleine impressie van enkele van de kleertjes ;-)


I already wrote about cleaning out my fabricscloset...
now that I am sorting out the spring- & summerclothes of our gamins,
I find a lot of nice clothes,
that have gotten too small,

That's why I will be selling them in a separate page on the blog, 
click here.

Here's a small overview of some of the clothes ;-)

Black & white 'Vans' Plaid

He likes black & white,
so I made him a simple plaid in white fleece and black & white chessboard / checkers, as used here
as he likes in his Vans clothes and shoes.

He adores it and enjoys it in his dark grey-black-white room,
as seen here & here,
and carries it around the house.

Grateful for every little thing I make for him,
makes me even more grateful for having a son like that ;-)

Swallows * De jurk met de zwaluwen

I wish they would fly high up in the sky today.
We watched them all year round, 
when we travelled around Southern Europe.
They tell/told us more about the weather than the weather forecast.

Their fabrics are, by far, the prettiest I ever saw.

Today I finally could take up my scissors and make a dress for Clarice.

For the first time I made a dress with long sleeves and she adores it.
Lucky us.


Ik zou er een hele kleerkast / huis mee kunnen vullen.
Met voorsprong dè allermooiste stoffen heden ten dage.

Hoe graag ik de stoffen ook zie, het duurt lang eer ik erin kan snijden.

Eigenlijk wachtte ik gewoon op deel 2 van Griet's Stof-voor-durf-het-zelvers.
De perfecte stof verdient een perfect patroon.
Voor de eerste keer met een lange mouw.
Het is eens iets anders.
