Monday coffee morning – conquering the world!

Well, not quite the world, but I did conquer Bruges!

I just had a girly weekend away which is something I haven’t done in god knows how long.  Since before I moved to Holland, in any case.  So that’s at least five years.  We shopped, we ate, we walked, we laughed, we drank cocktails, it was fabulous.  But the highlight by far was climbing the Belfry!

The famous Belfry in Bruges. A paltry 366 steps to the top. Easy peasy. ha!

What’s on this week?  Well, I am almost finished the biggest amigurumi project of my life – a gorgeous brown bear that’s a special commission.  Here he is without any legs, what do you think?

I finished the legs last night and now he only needs a tail.  My daughter is in love and I’ll have to sneak him out the door I think.

Then it’s on to Minions.  Who doesn’t love the minions, really.  I made this one for a newborn, but there will be adult versions flying off my hook in the coming weeks.

Lots of other stuff on; the weather is gorgeous so we’re playing outside as much as possible on the slippery slide and in the pool and have a trip to Sprookjeswonderland planned for this Friday, can’t wait!
