Some time ago I promised to show you
a little more of
our neighbourhood
Well , if you would like to come along again..........

follow me down the stairs .........

and look ,

there's a beautiful church , whith a monument in front of it.
Oorlogsmonument Val-meer
This monument commemorates the residents of Val-Meer
who died in the First and Second World War.

Hello there,
you cute woolly sheep,
in your very quiet rural setting .

And there's a nostalgic barn .

Look, how they have put the flower boxes so neatly in a row.

and last but not least,
a very old farm , with a beautiful authentic archway,
typical Limburgs .

Well , this is it.............. for now,
but I will show you a lot more soon,
promise .
Have a nice weekend !

scrap yarn

I have quite a bit of yarn left over,
from all the crochet project I have been doing lately.
The amounts are very small, but I don't want to end up throwing the small lengths of yarn away.
But with a bit of imagination this waste wool can be turned into useful and colourful items.
So what to do with those scraps?
Well, there are lots of things you can do with your scrap yarn.
First of all ,
tie all loose ends together to make one big ball........
to be continued :)
