Hello Weekend DIY Book

And just like that I wrote another book, three books in one year! And some of you may wonder where I have gone off to. I’ve been writing books as I love writing books, I really do. As a kid I loved making assignments like big ones about sheep, cats, Laura Ashley and one time about my childhood Chow Chow, Pascha. I even took the dog into the classroom to show how fabulous she was and where all her cute stuff sat. I miss Pascha ….

This book is about DIY’s. It’s divided in 4 categories and covers crochet, sewing, embroidery, painting, paper-craft and woodwork. The 52 DIY’s (one for each weekend of the year) are all easy to make, functional and efficient. We basically use all of the DIY’s in the book ourselves or I make them as presents. It’s a cute book.

It’s the second book in the “weekend” series and I can already tell you that there’s going to be another one next year. And that’s it as there’s no such thing as Spider-man 4.

Hopefully later this year or early next year the books will be translated to different languages and to English. We are still working on that. It’s not easy as a Dutch/Flemish author to be published in foreign languages. Yvestown in the Kitchen, my first book, is published in English and for sale on

    Ooohhh!! Die gaat op mijn verlanglijstje, met het gevaar dat ik aan mijn loslopende WIP’s helemaal niet meer toe ga komen, hahaha! Precies het soort projecten dat ik graag doe, ben heel benieuwd! Had geen idee dat er ook haakprojecten in zouden staan! Leuk….
    Is het ook mogelijk om een gesigneerde versie direct bij jou te kopenen en op te halen, aangezien ik in ook in Vlaanderen woon :-)?
    Heel veel succes met al je boeken en vertalingen!
