At the moment I really love to make country dolls by hand. I have collected some lovely fabrics( lots and lots of them lol)and with some wonderful patterns I make these lovely dolls. I usely make them when I sit in front of the tv watching a good movie.
Here you can see some of them hanging on my cupboard in the livingroom.

Some close ups.

A sweet angel.

This is also a cute one.

This is Dolly.

And of course a lovely chicken.
I just LOVE chickens.

I'm finaly back at my blog. I can't believe that it has been so long since my last post.I will post here regular again from now on. I had some problems with blogger, the layout of my blog changed completely suddenly. So now I tried a new one and hopefully that will stay here.

This is just a short post, I'm on the laptop and we don't have many photo's on it.

Here is A photo of our lovely dog Duke. Sadly we had to put him to sleep on July 13th 2010 at the age of almost 15 years old.He was getting real old the last couple of months, I dont know how to say it in english it was his time.He has been cremated and his ashes are still with us but we're going to have his ashes on the place where he always loved to hunt.
I'm back real soon with a proper post.

One small change - February,

My change for January went very well. I managed to say no to all the plastic bags they where offering me in the shops. Only once I needed that plastic bag becuaseI bought some clothes and they didn't fit in my fabric bags I carry in my purse. but I used it to collect all the plastic items in so I can bring it to the recycle container for plastics.

My change for February is to dry al my laundry in the air or in the attic on a clothing rack and not to use our dryer.

Here is a photo of our dogs on the right above is our oldest dog Duke. He turned 14 last year November . He is now really getting old. He is almost completely deaf and some of the time we think that he is forgetting lots of things and sometimes he seems not to know what to do .But he still seems to enjoy himself and he still loves to take a walk with our other dogs. He walks slowly and the other ones are running.
Hopefully he can be with us for some time.

And here is a photo of our youngest dog Abbey running together with her sister Lotje.

A couple of months ago I began to read the book Twilight by Stephanie Meyers and I fell completely in love with it. I just had to keep reading it untill I finished the last page, it's so good!!!!!!!
Then I had to buy the other 2 books also and I finished them in no time at all, boy they're good. Sadly now I have to wait untill March or April when book number 4 is translated in Dutch. I read many books in English as well
but since the other books are in Dutch I decided to wait.
And off course I have also seen the movies Twilight and New Moon and I think they're amazing!
Last week I began reading another great book and it looks a bit the same as Twilight. It's called the Vampires diary and I noticed that on Sunday the 31th it will be on TV. I can't wait to see it.
In December I joined a wonderful swap over at Ravelry. And I received some wonderful things. Off course I have forgotton to make photo's of the things that I send to Paula.... But here are the wonderful things she send to me.

I just LOVE these yarns. It's cotton and it's so very soft! I haven't seen anything like it here before.

A great washcloth made by Paula.

And she also made me this gorgious bag.

In December I also participated in another great swap, but those photo's I still have to download from my camera so I will post about it soon.

Finally back in blogging land.It really has been a long time since I have been here.I have tried to post here several times but something was wrong and blogger wouldn't let me near my blog. Even now it's still acts a bit weird and not everything is showing on my computer. But I thought I give it a try.

I am trying to become more aware of how we deal with mother nature.
I have found a couple of lovely blogs lately and they got me thinking more and more about it. One of the blogs talks about making a small change every month for the next coming months and I have decided to join this challenge.I am a bit late with it because it started allready on the beginning of Januar, but my small change this month is that I don't want to receive plastic bags anymore and only use my cloth bags. So from now I have 2 small folded bags with me all time.

The blog on which the small challenge can be found is
