Finishing loose ends. When you’ve already started with something new, your focus is usually with the new stuff, but if you want to end a previous project with a good feeling, you will have to finish these last ends. This is true for crafting projects, but also when you make video’s. And this was also the case for the video I released today 🙂 . You may have seen I’m busy with preparing a CAL, and that is so fun to do! An amazing lot of work, it really is, but so fun to do! But I told I would also do a video aboutRead More →

Well, to be honest, I’m back home again. About 3 weeks ago I was on vacation at the south of France for 2 weeks at a beautiful resort: Chateau Cazalères at Daumazan sur Arize. So that’s why it has been a bit quiet here. And I don’t want to give it a loud shout out on the internet when leaving my home for some time, so I didn’t announce it beforehand. Hope you didn’t miss me too much 🙂 . I took ‘some’ crafting stuff along with me as you can see. Well, you should have seen our car, totally filled up 🙂 🙂 🙂Read More →

The lower border Almost finished! I want to share some last things with you.

At the yellow parts you can see I did a row of 4Read More →

Oh dear…. Well, not really 🙂 . I ran into a ‘problem’, like I already mentioned in a previous post. As you can see in the picture here, I used a lot more of the purple yarns than I used for the other colors. At this point I had approximately 50 cm (20 inch) left of the purple threads, and about 70 cm (28 inch) of the other colors. Well, this is not exactly my very first design, so I could have foreseen this. I know that making a knot uses more length of your thread, than when you make a knot around this threadRead More →

The design: a short review As you can read and see in my previous blogs, I made a design for a knotted bag. And now the sequel: the actual knotting of it! The ones that follow my facebook page already saw a preview in a vlog of the start, and how to knot the threads around the upper border threads. If you don’t follow my facebook page yet, you can see a direct link to my page in the menu! I can tell you secretly that I am a lot further already, and it turns out so nice!!!  A special twist on the design happened,Read More →
