Just bits of news

Today Sharon de Vries and her friend Erica Gros came to have coffee here ( if I think of it , I will have a  pic of them at Rheda , forgot about it , of course). Sharon brought me this wonderful small baby bib
 See how small it is and how very well knitted ? I could NEVER EVER do this !!!!
Thank you Sharon !!!

Erica brought me a  loverly fern kit and explained to me how to do it. I will post more extensively about that later , but it is really well done!!

In the meantime I ripped my Alice doll apart( poor gal) , the arms were nor right, but if those blessed arms are going to stay in place now, I think they are going to work .
And I hung and laid down several of Georgia Marfels's creations in this cupboard that I made ages ago and never stocked up. As you can see, some more shopping is indicated , so on my Rheda list, too  . That list is filling up by now.
For the fishies I made a waterbasin from a plastic box, hardly an original idea , but what is a  gel to do,eh ? I used clear drying Aleene's gel this time, hope it will keep allright. I am not fond of resin.


  1. I viewed several of your posts as I hadnt been here a while. Everything is so remarkable. I love the little bib your friend made.

  2. Glad you had a good visit, Erika told me they were planning on visting you, I haven't seen Sharon's knitting yet, so keep that bib close by.

    You are not planning on feeding me any kreepy crawly's from the sea I hope! See you on Saturday!

  3. Beautiful bib - the knitting is superb. Where will your food cupboard go? It will look quite full with the things you've bought at the fair, I should think. Hugs, Sandie

  4. Hello Elly
    Sharon and Erika are sooooo talented! I know them here in Cape Town. I am planning a visit to Amsterdam in March and would value a suggestion or 2 of which places I should shop for miniatures.
