Sandy Seashore

crocheted balls and rounds
the result
of some quiet moments
on my holiday in France
(kids in the swimming pool or playing with their newmade friends)

I had taken
some cotton in the colors of the moodboard I made before
but had no idea what to do with it...

the result is a mix and match natural necklace (horn, seeds, wood, cotton)
in saturated colors (sand, honey, lavender, sandal, chamois)
that brings a bit back from the warm summer days (it looks like they are definitely over now!)
My entry for the challenge of Rikrak: Sandy Seashore.

gehaakte bolletjes en schijfjes
het resultaat van een rustig moment
op reis in Frankrijk

ik had een paar bolletjes
in de kleuren van mijn moodboard
wist nog niet
wat ermee te doen

enkele bolletjes zijn nu verwerkt in een halssnoer,
verder nog:
hout, mooigevormde okerkleurige zaden en schijfjes uit hoorn
de warme, verzadigde kleuren (zand, lavendel, honing, chamois) houden de zomer nog even vast!

{ hmmm, herst en winter komen eraan
dus krijg ik weer volop goesting om
textiele sieraden te gaan maken! }

en toevallig
past dit snoer perfect voor de challenge van Rikrak: Sandy Seashore.

it's a bit quiet here
I know
I am
working on new things,
making lists,
finishing the last orders,
coping with all sorts of household stuff....
refreshing my mind and my collection
and silver
and baking pancakes
with my little kids.
One more week
and school will start again.

Monday Moodboard

again a rainy day
in Belgium
looks like autumn has already started...
I have been searching for
some beautiful things
that autumn brings with!
just to cheer up!
