To eat in Copenhagen

When we were in Copenhagen we dined in two places :
in Teaterkælderen in the celler of Det Ny Teater and
in Jensen's Bøfhus. I really liked the second restaurant.
Good food and it was cheap too. The ambiance of the
restaurant was relaxed and the service very friendly.

Det Ny Teater and the restaurant, Teaterkælderen.

Turquoise and gold-coloured necklace

About 15 years ago i started to really get into
beading and jewellery crafting and i did that
for five years. Then i lost interest but lately
i felt like doing some jewellery crafting again
and i really enjoyed it !!

Søstrene Grene in Copenhagen

A visit to Copenhagen would not be complete
without a visit to Søstrene Grene, they have their
origins there after all. I was a good girl and did
not buy the whole store, but i did have to pick up
some bits and bobs !

Seminar in Copenhagen

Last week we were in Copenhagen for a seminar
and we were staying in the Copenhagen Crown
hotel. The hotel was really nice and very close
to the city centre. A photographic impression :

A knitty week

In the autumn vacation my mother and sister were
visiting and we did a lot of knitting. There were quite
some things that we did not get to finish, but here are
some examples of the things we did finish.

Quick Knit Collar (Knifty Knitter)

With this Quick Knit (Knifty Knitter) loom,
i created this mohair collar. I did not use the
normal stitch, but a double twist stitch.
Afterwards, i crocheted a tiny border to it to
finish it off nicely.

Published !

I have been published in the norwegian magazine
Ett Trykk, which is a stamping and scrapbooking
magazine. I have been published in a dutch
magazine before, but that was with "only" one
project and this time, six of my projects are
featured !

Homemade Washi Tape, vibrant colours

I am sure all crafters can relate to the following :

a crafter to his or her partner :
"What do you mean, exactly, "Don't you have enough
of this stuff" ?" (followed by a threatening growl)
the partner : "Ehm, nothing sweetie, nothing at all ..."
(scurries away with tail between hind legs)

Anyway, you can never have too much happy coloured
tape, right ?

My Mah-Jong family

For the second time this year, the Mah-Jong club that my
parents (and two others) are founders of, organised a
tournament. This time a national NTS Tournament.

It was a lot of fun, but the counting of all the points is
always something that has to be done meticulously,
something that my father (to the left) is very good at.

Autumn gnomes

No autumn vacation is complete without us making
gnomes. It is just so much fun to do. So that is
exactly what my mum, sister and i did.

The raw materials :

And how they turned out :

Alas, just like last year, there was this monster lurking
in the shadows, a monster with a taste for gnomes !

Luckily, no gnomes were hurt during the attack of the beast.
