Quote of the day

In the rhythm of the needles

there is music for the soul.

A lovely afternoon at Kortrijk Expo

It was sunny and warm in the car when my sister and I drove to Kortrijk.  Finally a bit of sunlight and we decided to spend the afternoon INSIDE a big building....  but  filled with all sorts of crafts, we couldn't be happier.
We walked around in amazement : such a choice, so many ideas...  We visited a shop with patchwork, and bought some nice yellowish fabric with Easter in mind...   then beads and pearls and stuff to make necklaces and earrings.  Then we joined in a knit-marathon  : in 3 minutes we had to knit as many stiches as we could.  I was pleased with my result : 165 stiches.   But I was beaten by 2 stiches by my sister :  she had 167 stiches. There will have to be a revenge...
We bought books with patterns, and a leaflet to make Tilda dolls.  A set of fimo clay  with instuctions how to make flowers.   Unfortunately and very stupid : I forgot to bring my camera....   So, no pictures of us at the exposition  I'm sorry.  But this is what I got :

a passion for knitting, with lovely projects

gorgeous hats by a  Dutch designer

workshop box 'how to make flowers in fimo'

something very weird called kumihimo...
the new Tilda book...with instructions in Dutch !

    Tell me the secret,pls: what that weird thing is-called mysteriously/in Japanese probably:-)-KUMIHIMO and what it is used for??
