I hope you all had a nice weekend and some time to enjoy a little bit of sunshine? Here we were lucky to have had sunny afternoons both on Saturday and Sunday, but we had a storm last night! We just have to make the most of the weather whilst we can! I will show you some wonderful impressions from my walks, but first to my latest completed project.
The Silver Shells Cowl is finished!!!
This Cowl, that I mentioned in my previous post, was completed this morning. I only had to crochet the final 2 rows and then crochet it all together. When worn, the lower part fans out wide and covers the shoulders. Here it is!

My colourful South Bay Shawlette and the Harlequin Blanket are ongoing, I managed to work a bit on both this weekend. I will show you some photos another time!
A Walk in the Nature Park Walenhoek near Niel
Walenhoek is a Nature Park in the next village (Niel) where excavated clay pits were filled with water and turned into fishing ponds. There are 13 different ponds, 9 of which are for fishing. There are a number of marked walks through the woods and along these ponds. We went for a walk there before in the early summer. I let the pictures speak for themselves! (Believe me, these are just a number of handselected photos, I took lots and lots this Saturday!)

A Walk in the Park in Heerlen, Netherlands
Yesterday we drove to Heerlen in the Netherlands. We went to see (and hear!) a Multimedia Sound Art Exhibition called (H)EAR XL2 - weblink here. It was really interesting!
Afterwards we took a stroll through the town centre and went for a nice walk in the nearby Aambos Park, which also houses some animals.
Here are some highlights!
