There is a new rooster in the courtyard

The last rooster, his name was Karel, was not a sweet one. He was aggressive and  attacked people especially from behind. Everybody, even the farmer neighbor, tried to educate him but  in vane..... When i asked for advice at the animal market, the only answer was, you need to kill him because he will be dangerous for kids and also for your eyes. So I am very sorry Karel, but our neighbor killed him.

Now there is a very sweet new rooster, he is a Brahma, very colorful and he wears 'socks'. His name is BRAM .

I have been very busy.....

I have been very busy for the Christmas market of my club Sarzay creatif.
I was knitting, patching, crocheting , sewing and decorating.
I'll show you the things I made:
I made some garlands with small fishes, so cute! Here is the pattern.

The pattern of the crochet heart is on Karin's blog. I decorated with baboeska's and beads. 

This baby blanket  is made with fabric that I received as a member of a fabric club.  It was not my fabric at all too sweet for me. But I think it's nice for a baby blanket....

I had this piece of fabric for ages, did not know what to do with it. When I heard that the Sarzay creatif club every year with Christmas sends a parcel to the baby ward in the hospital I made a babyblanket for this parcel. I sandwiched the fabric with Hobbs 80/20, bought a nice background and quilting it by machine.  Isn't it cute.....

To be continued.
