Winter knits

Up till now it hasn't been much of a winter here in Holland. This week the temperature suddenly plummeted to around and below zero. Time to get my crochet hand warmers out and quickly finish my knitted hat. Both patterns found on Ingthings.

Voor een wolk van een baby

'Een wolk van een baby' is a Dutch expression to describe a lovely healthy baby. In this case a baby girl named Ilse, born on the 13th of december last year. I made her this cloud pillow following the pattern in Fiona Dalton's book 'Wil jij mijn vriendje zijn'.
The back is made out of one of my boyfriend's old shirts, so again a bit of recycling!

Antwerpen (Anvers)

After it being in the attic for many years we took the Polaroid camera with us. I just think the film we had was a bit past its expiration date....
