Het borduren (her)ontdekt

Wie mij, of een aantal andere Vlaamse bloggers volgt op social media heeft waarschijnlijk vorig weekend gezien dat we afspraak hadden in Antwerpen. Nele en Eva hadden een super fijn weekend in elkaar gebokst met de toepasselijke naam: ‘Not Another Sewing Weekend‘* en omdat het geen twee dagen van eten, drinken en shoppen alleen konden worden (naaimachines waren niet toegelaten ;-))  hadden ze ook een mini workshop gepland. Zo kregen we op zaterdagochtend allemaal een borduurring, naalden en garen toegestopt en werden we met veel plezier aan het handwerken gezet.

February = Birthday Month

This weekend I was invited to two Birthday partys. First up was my godson Jules’ second birthday. There were pancakes, a shadow play, spaghetti, wine, cake and of course: gifts!
His parents bought him an antique race car, which his dad lovingly restored. His dad also added two rear lights and Jules’ mummy was responsible for the cool brand- and tiger stickers.
My small contribution were the two seating cushions. It was a fine day!fotos-met-ster1

A fine day

Yesterday was my Birthday and it was a good day. My mother helped me cook diner, starting with pumpkin soup with coconut milk and fresh ginger and ending with dark and white chocolate mousse, raspberry coulis, whipped cream and some very fine biscuits. Everything homemade. And to top it of, my best friend Delfien made a delicious cake with freshly plucked raspberries. After that sugar rush it was time for some gifts, including this perfume and Ikea fabrics, watching X-factor auditions on YouTube and ending a great day in a weird bar, but having lots of fun.
