About

Follow me on Instagram and Ravelry and I also have a FaceBook page Under Dutch Skies.

I grew up in California but I’ve been living in Europe since 1992 (except for a few years in SoCal – what was I thinking?). I live in the Netherlands and often post photos of day to day life on Instagram. This blog is now dedicated to my craft pursuits.

I have been sewing since the age of 8. Knitting since a teenager. Started dyeing yarn and fiber with friends in Amsterdam. Spinning came to me late in life, but soon became a big influence in my crafting life and now I have 5 spinning wheels in the house. I’d like to try my hand at quilting and pottery. And I’ve taken up accordion playing but you won’t read about that on the blog!

  1. I so enjoy your posts on instagram! Beautiful foto’s. I am dreaming of the wonderful wol/zijde combination lont wol you had ! Do you know of anyone in the Netherlands who has it? Have fun nesting in den helder! groetjes from Shelley in Haarlem (we were almost neighbours!)

  2. Could you send me a larger copy of you revised toe? I am having trouble seeing it. Thank you very much, I have a steep slope on my toes and am excited that your toe may actually fit! And I’ve visited your country, I loved it, from the blooming tulip fields to the town square in Delft. OK it would give me nightmares to try to park next to a canal, lol.
    Thanks

  3. Just curious about your accordion playing. I happen to be a fan of this marvellous instrument too! What kind of music do you play? I like to play music from Yann Tiersen and even from Metallica!
    I’d love to hear from you.
