Today I should rename my blog, since what I'd like to share with you wasn't made by me, but by my wonderful DH. Well, most of it at least, he just needed a bit of help with the finishing touch (and I admit I wasn't really good at that either).
DH loves to do woodwork but he often complains that he has to go into his studio to work with wood and that he'd love to have a hobby he could engage in in the evening when we are in our living room. Just like I do almost every evening with my knitting. So when we browsed through a catalogue with craft supplies last year and he pointed to a carpet and said something like 'I could do something like that too. I think it's fun.', I immediately took action... and bought him a kit for his birthday. Yep, it got me a startled 'Really?' but when the first amaze was over, he got hooked right away. And he worked on it almost every night.
It's a doormat, about 70 x 45 cm and I love the motif and the colours. And I'm so happy that Ulli is so happy with his work. Now to find the perfect place in our house for this wonderful handmade.
