It is still very cold over here but the sun is shining a bit longer every day. Time to grab some tools and put some order in the garden.

Till then some pictures of my new projects.

First a top which did not cost me a cent: I had a shop bought jumper whose wool was too nice to throw away but which shape shout too much "I was made in the 90s and I am proud of it" (wide shoulders, too long,..). So I undid it and then plied the wool as it was very fine (machine knit). Then I made a pattern as I went along, being inspired by some other patterns from magazines.
I am very happy with the result and it is a piece very easy to wear.
I worked some more in my sketchbook:

Trying new things like acrylic paint, coloured pencils,...

I am having fun! I hope you too!
