New friend

Meet my new best friend:

I found a web site for sheepdog names

My dog is Saegola (sea breeze).

Trip to California

My person and I went to see her parents (my grandparents?) last week. They have a lot of interesting plants in their yard:

Some have beautiful flowers:

They live near this park with a stream:

We like to go there for bird watching:

This one is a hawk (kite):

There were actually two of them:

Then us gals all went to a yarn show:

It's hard to show the full insanity of this place:

Ravie de vous rejoindre, même si pour l'instant je reste au chaud. Il faut avouer que je n'ai pas encore eu le temps de me tricoter une tenue un peu plus adaptée à la température extérieure...Jugez vous-même!

Rousse au yeux verts...un vieux rêve!
A bientôt pour une sortie à l'extérieur et la découverte du monde environnant

Dutch Theodóra in the snow

Look o look: we had some snow in the Netherlands last week and temperatures dropped down to a seldom felt -16'C! Dutch Theodóra desperately needed warmer clothes, so I finished her Lett Lopi sweater and knitted her a warm skirt. Still she doen's wear socks yet, but I found some wooden shoes for her to wear. No need to walk in the snow on bare feet. My intention was to knit her a Staphorst costume, that's the reason the skirt is a little shorter then in the pattern. Now I've changed my mind, because Dutch Theodóra is not a very Staphorst type of girl and I will probably rip the skirt back and knit her some warm pants instead.
