Knitted present

I knitted a shawl for an old lady in Holland, she is 92 years old.
It's my second 'Andrea's shawl', the first one was very small, this one is a bit bigger but not as big as I wanted. So there shall be a third one.....

Vroem vroem

I made these cars for a cute little boy's birthday.For him a car is vroem vroem.  His mother want to decorate his bedroom and she asked for some ideas. When I bought this fabric I had no specific plans.
I have cut out the cars, filled them and now you could make a mobile or just hang them on the wall.

Alphabe Thursday

U is for United Kingdom.
Last 5 days I was in United Kingdom for a garden trip with my garden club. We've seen beautiful gardens and amazing old houses.
We visited  Pashley Manor gardens. The rhododendrons were still in bloom; weather was warm and we had lunch in the garden....

In the private garden Bankton cottage we saw the motherswan with her 'child' walking in the garden......

There were also beautiful statues in this garden.

In Great Dixter, the garden of Christopher Lloyd(died in 2006), were many, many flowers.

In the private garden KIng John's Lodge were, like in the other gardens many rhododendrons in bloom. Even beside the roads were walls of rhododendrons.

And , of course, we visited Sissinghurst castle and gardens.
