No, I'm not a computer nerd...

What Be Your Nerd Type?
Your Result: Literature Nerd

Does sitting by a nice cozy fire, with a cup of hot tea/chocolate, and a book you can read for hours even when your eyes grow red and dry and you look sort of scary sitting there with your insomniac appearance? Then you fit this category perfectly! You love the power of the written word and it's eloquence; and you may like to read/write poetry or novels. You contribute to the smart people of today's society, however you can probably be overly-critical of works.

It's okay. I understand.

I wish.. I wish...

I really love this on, but I don't think they will ship to the Netherlands..
So I'm looking a bit closer to home and found these:
A Louet drum carder:

Or this one from Van der Have Holland:

I think I like the Van der Have the best. If I cannot have my Pat Green..

Oh wel, I have until May to decide. Then my money savings acount is going to pay off after 20 years of saving a little amount of money each month.

I was thinking of getting myself 2 new tattoos, but I think now it will be a drum carder oh and this lovely lady is also on my wishlist:

Her name is Victoria and she's from Louët
I love new toys..
So what do you think? The Louët or the Van Der Have drum carder???
Both websites are also in English.
I'm going to dream on it for now. And maybe dream of it.
Good night to you all and dream happy dreams... I know I will :)

I'm weaving!

Sort of.. I love this, it's fun!

Let's go!

Ayla doesn't mind going to the vet. She has to visit today for her anual check up.
When I put the travel-basket on the livingroom floor, she's eager to get in and now she's waiting until I get dressed, so we can go.

And no, when we walk to the vet's office, she does not give a sound, when we have to wait, she sits quietly in her big basket and when we meet the vet, she is very co-operative. No problems what so ever. I told you she was the sweetest cat in the whole world :D

Goodies and a new toy.

Today I went with Danny to the Textiel Plus dag. Textiel Plus ("Textile +" is a Dutch magazine) organised a day filled with inspiration, a market, lectures (which we did not attent) and lots and lots of felt (which we did not like)

What we did like was this:

That is, when it became this:

:D So I bought one and Danny has one in back order.
Isn't it a cutey? :)))

I have to wait at least 4 hours now for the glue to dry, so I won't be waeving untill tomorrow.

But I have some other goodies too:

Belfast 32 count linen, white 32 count evenwave fabric and some Lingarn. It's less red in real as it looks like in the picture.

It was a very nice day, and tomorrow I will play with my new toy :)

My name is Marion...

You are confident, self assured, and capable. You are not easily intimidated.

You master any and all skills easily. You don't have to work hard for what you want.

You make your life out to be exactly how you want it. And you'll knock down anyone who gets in your way!

You are usually the best at everything ... you strive for perfection.

You are confident, authoritative, and aggressive.
You have the classic "Type A" personality.

You are wild, crazy, and a huge rebel. You're always up to something.

You have a ton of energy, and most people can't handle you. You're very intense.

You definitely are a handful, and you're likely to get in trouble. But your kind of trouble is a lot of fun.

You tend to be pretty tightly wound. It's easy to get you excited... which can be a good or bad thing.

You have a lot of enthusiasm, but it fades rather quickly. You don't stick with any one thing for very long.

You have the drive to accomplish a lot in a short amount of time. Your biggest problem is making sure you finish the projects you start.

You are well rounded, with a complete perspective on life.

You are solid and dependable. You are loyal, and people can count on you.

At times, you can be a bit too serious. You tend to put too much pressure on yourself.

You are very intuitive and wise. You understand the world better than most people.

You also have a very active imagination. You often get carried away with your thoughts.

You are prone to a little paranoia and jealousy. You sometimes go overboard in interpreting signals.

dye experiment

So I was trying to dye some cross stitch fabric with natural sources this morning.

tea, dried marigold leaves, onion shells and walnut

the results are promising:

Although the marigold had very little effect. Next time I'll try boiling it on the stove, see if that works better.
