A blog post!

The longer you stay away from you blog, the easier it gets. Weeks went by without even opening 'carpe quiltem". I made lots of posts in my head but somehow they never made it to my blog. But now I'm happy to tell the world that i survived the holiday season (hope you are all well too) and that I wás very busy from time to time.
- cleaned out my wardrobe and donated 4 garbage bags full to Goodwill.
-  I knitted 2 cowls and one cabled scarf

-  crocheted 3 pairs of fingerless gloves

-  crocheted 4 amigurumi monsters, 2 ducks, 1 Perry from the Phineas and Ferb cartoons,   1 poo (yes, poop, just because I came across the pattern),1 cupcake and 1 ball. All those for my own amusement. (google for "free amigurumi patterns if you're interested)
- teached C how to crochet her own keychain duck.
- re-painted Biker-Son 's room after he moved out (still busy with that project)

- finished 3 adventure pc games
- getting ready to help moving Baking DD coming weekend to the far south of the country. She's going to study there at the Higher Hotel School.
- sewed zip and handquilted no more than 10". Dustbunnies live in my sewingmachine and quilting supplies

All that's left is dealing with an empty nest syndrome, now all of the offspring is scattered around the country.
Leaves me with one big mystery.......
Why on earth is THIS in my bathroom and more important:
WHOSE are these with only DH and me in the house????

Guess I'm back in blogland. Don't know if it's for long, we'll see how life goes....


  1. Goh, je bent er nog! Vroeg me al agf of er iets ernstigs aan de hand was, maar gelukkig ben je alleen maar serieus bezig geweest. Jeetje, wat heb je veel gedaan. Laat je het nog zien?
    Leuk dat je jongste DD naar Maastricht verhuist. Is een erg gezellige stad, een beetje Den Bosch-achtig en maar een uurtje rijden!

  2. Hoi Annemiek,

    Het was wel erg stil, maar gelukkig ben je er nog. En nu weer tijd vinden om lekker te quilten!

  3. Oh I've missed you! I've been MIA on my blog as well. I write blog posts in my head, but no time to really write them.
    Sounds like you've been progress on the red and green quilt?

  4. Empty nest syndrome... you'll get used to it very quickly.

  5. About time you big goofball!! I've missed you. You are gonna love being an empty nester!! Now get to posting!

  6. Ik dacht telkens, ik moet weer eens posten maar ja, mama heeft oooook nog steeds niks nieuws geblogt.... ;-)
