Blanket no.1

Just in time for Christmas I finished this blanket. The last 2 months of this year were pretty hectic at work as well as at home, so It took me a while to get started with this one. And it really had to be done on time because it was a gift! 

But when I got to knitting there was no stopping me! Because as always knitting gets me sitting down...and just knit! Then what happens is: I organize my thoughts and my home (okay I got sloppy and it was a total mess...), I already love all my boys to death but then even MORE, and finally watch the last season of Homeland with my hubs! 

Blanket no.2 is on the needles, I think I will enjoy this zen moment a little longer.. 

Best wishes for the new year!

Winter Blogger

Since my last blogpost was in March (read: beginning of spring), I had blogging inspiration today for the first time in a long time...(read: winter is coming). I'm convinced I must be a winter blogger. 

Instead of hyberating during the winter, it looks that I am waking up! It's true, I got my knitting needles out, knitting a triangle shawl for a friend. And on top of it all, thanks to my true Suusig-ambassador Viv, I was asked to knit a blanket! A knitting assignment how wonderful is that?

One way or another this time of year has got me dreaming of a Suusig Shop, or Studio Suusig, I like the sound of it. Knitting and painting are two of my favorites. Or Suusig Label, I can think of more catchy names ;-))
We recently got a fireplace so I think I'll spend some time there this fall. Knitting and daydreaming, who knows.

Enjoy your week!

This is a recipe I made before but then I put the batter in a muffin tray. So instead of muffins a cake this time!

Painting Feathers

Sharing my feather project which I finished last night in painting class! It's a 80 x 100 cm canvas, and I used acrylic paint.

Messy & Purple

It may look a little messy & purple to you, but this bowl of oats tastes like a sunny Sunday morning! 

The ingredients:
3 Spoons of oatmeal 
A Cup of milk
1 Teaspoon of grated coconut 
1 Banana cut in small pieces 
Handful of blueberries 
Drop of honey 

If you like your oatmeal cold, mix all ingredients, except for the berries, and leave it for a while so the oats will soften. 

If you like it to be warm, prepare the oatmeal and milk in a pan or microwave, then add the other ingredients, except for the berries, put them in when it is ready to eat. 

Enjoy your Sunday!
